Storm Doris must have felt that she didn't do the job properly recently as she's back today. The UK has been hit by up to 95 mph winds, snow and torrential rain. We're pretty OK over here right now with a wind force of 40-50 mph.
So I'm hunkering down and catching up on some admin, but thought I'd take a break to chat with you, dear readers.
Earlier this week when things were calmer I met with some lovely girlfriends for a bite to eat.
So, February, cold ... it just had to be a jumper and jeans. Again. I apologise for such repetition lately, but I am going for February cosiness, and that is jumper and jeans.
Classic winter white and pearls.
This is a Woolovers cashmere merino number, currently in the sale. It's got a clever collar that you can unbutton for a nice neckline feature, or button up for a polo neck. Winter white, polo neck, make up. Naah, don't think that'll work for The Pout!
I find that the quality of some of the newer Woolovers products is all over the place. This one is a bit thin, a bit transparent. This could be an ongoing issue. I tried it the other day with a light coloured camisole. Looked a bit strange. So here I'm experimenting with a black vest, to give what I am terming a subliminal column effect. The Pout Jury is out on whether this innovative solution is working.
Two things to point out today.
1. Our main camera lens is broken. Futu, as we say over here. We've had to use the close up zoom lens until we can sort out a new camera. For some reason, using this lens makes the flash really bright. So currently, I have to do "mood look away" poses - this may please you.
2. I wore a handbag! Such a big event that I had to post a pic. I usually stuff phone, purse and lip balm into my down coat pockets. Not very ladylike but I like bagless freedom. The only prob is that on the rare occasions I am bagged up, I have to remember to pick it up and take it home. The fear of forgetting the occasional handbag stresses me somewhat.
I was meeting with my girlies at the same restaurant as I'd visited recently, Christies-on-Saturday, so scene-setting pics needed today.
So what can I give you to round off this post?
Sun-basking seals of course!
One of my friends had seen these lovelies during a recent boat trip. Here they are, having a breather on a local rock. I like the smiling mum's face in the pic the left.
Well, that perked up this OOTD post, eh?!
A la perchoine.
