Happy Mothering Sunday to all the wonderful mums on our precious planet.
You work tirelessly, you give unselfishly and you love unconditionally
- you deserve a good pampering, today and any day!
And I feel I've already had a good pampering with my new cardi. It was love at first wear. I am #overthemoonhappy with this new piece.
I am the picture of Happy Bunniness when I wear it!
Yesterday I introduced it to you, styled in top to toe berriness and my Happy Bunny face.
I continued excitedly, trying various tops with the berry coated jeggings, knee boots and new cardi combo.
It looks fresh when layered with an ivory top from Next.
Feminine with a touch of lace from Dotty P.
Returning to a more casual look, this time a grey longline cami and a low-slung belt, also from Peacocks (remember, esoteric colours = buy within the brand).
I thought this deserved a change of boot so I switched to grey suede anklies.
Can you see how much Happy Bunny is exuding from just one face?
Perhaps an air of cockiness?
You'd be right, I AM feeling cocky. Smug. For I started the day with one outfit and ended up with half a dozen!
I added just one piece to my wardrobe, the berry cardi. I created five new outfits for my berry jeggings at the blink of the eye. A small addition to your wardrobe can bring big changes to how you wear a certain piece. And of course here I'm just tackling the berry jeans. There are so many other outfits this cardi can spawn. With biker jeans, with blue jeans. With a black skirt, with a denim skirt. Oh the permutations are perhaps not endless but there are certainly shedloads of 'em.
Yes, third piece trickery was at play today. I'd realised that my berry jeggings didn't have their own third piece to create a "suit". For as Janice of The Vivienne Files (HERE) espouses, a same-coloured cardi creates a suit. And a cardi-suit is perfect for the more casual retirement wardrobe as it creates a smarter cohesive look without the formality of a jacket.
So my suggestion to you is to look at a fave piece of clothing and think how many more outfits you can create with the addition of just one new piece, that vital third piece. It truly is mindblowing!
Have you discovered the usefulness of the cardi-suit?
The retirement suit?
I'd love to hear.
Thanks for popping in today.
Now, I'd be filled with happy bunniness if you subscribed to my blog. I love numbers and your subscription would make my little number that little bit bigger. It'll cost you nothing!
And I love hearing from readers, it gets really matey when the comments pop up and I feel I'm not talking to the ether.
If you're a frequent reader but haven't commented, well, why not now? It would bring joy to my day to hear from you!
A la perchoine.
