Hi lovely peoples. How's your summer progressing? Or winter, for those down-under?
To my dear American readers, I wish you a very Happy 4th of July. And I hope that my lovely Canadian readers enjoyed a super day on the 1st.
I'm been continuing on my quest, making the most of the summer that's being thrown our way.
It probably would have been an OK-summer if that heatwave hadn't rather ruined it for us.
As the lovely Anna commented, we did seem to miss out on spring. We missed all those fab transitional dressing opportunities it normally brings.
So, I'm turning this hopefully temporary coolness into an opportunity to wear some cooler weather OOTDs.
I'm enjoying the flip-side, as sweet Dan commented.
Like this stone coloured linen jacket bought in last year's BHS closing down sale.
With White Company taupe modal l/sl top, M&S 501s and Clarks metallic toe flatties.
Oh and a Peacocks thong necklace, recently acquired.
Oh dear, what's that?
A wet patch on my top. Must have splashed myself when rinsing our late brunch dishes.
Brunch being ...
Yes, I'm a water-everywhere cleaner-upper, as TP often points out.
Ah well, maybe nobody will notice ...
... Just Keep Smiling and Carry On!
And you will not believe where I wore this outfit. On a Friday afternoon!
B&Q and Waitrose.
(that's Home De-pot and a posh-end supermarket for my 4th of July readers).
OK, a bit Pout-smart for domestic and diy shopping (and the patch had dried by then!) but the intention was that we would go out for a late afternoon bistro meal after our shopping.
But, you know, I was so excited with the brochures I picked up on garden furniture paint colours and pergola fence panels, that we didn't. Instead we decided to just go home to enjoy chicken pittas and aperos out on the patio whilst I battled through the decision quagmire that is outdoor paint colour.
And this was a Friday! Your weekend-starts-here-TGIF-Friday.
Yes peeps, B&Q and Waitrose - that's where my partying is done these days.
Tell me, have you become a bit stay-at-homey too as you drift through retirement?
Is Friday the time for fredags mys, or a trigger to hit the town?
And are you excited to be switching back to cooler summer weather?
Perhaps you'd thought up a few looks to try out, then abandoned them when things got hot.
A la perchoine.
