It's Sunday. The birds are singing and the sun is shining. I'm getting ready to go out for lunch and that means a call out to The Photographer. So what do I do? Yup, I position myself against said sun for my OOTDs! Sorry.
Call me sad but one of the many things I
like love about this time of year is being reunited with old favourites. You too? Thought so.
I was so excited to pull out my fave chinos. M&S about 5-6 years ago but boy have I been getting my CPW down on these. These past few years it's been quite a cliffhanger with their first wear of summer.
Are there any patches of wornoutedness? No.
Do they still fit? Yes!
And then, phew, breathe. All is right with the world.
I fear the day that they will give up the ghost on me. So I ordered a couple of pairs of chinos this morning. Back up, just in case. They may disappoint.
Do you find that you hit on something really good, then re-order from the same brand, pretty much the same cut, colour and fabric - and they just don't cut the mustard like your original item?
White Company taupe trapeze cardi, Next layer blouse.
Yes, all neutrals but I'm of the beige persuasion. There, my secret's out!
Necklace and earrings from way back. I dug them out of the jewellery cupboard this morning and oh joy, did they bring back memories. A holiday in Corfu, 2003. Brilliant holiday. I remember wearing this jewellery with a black vest dress for a dinner in our favourite restaurant on the island (yet I still struggle to work out what day it is today ...).
I expect Corfu is bracing itself for the Captain Corelli effect that Kefalonia experienced. It's just as pretty as it's portrayed in The Durrells ... anyone know if it was actually filmed there?
Oh how I digress with you guys! Back to the OOTD. I changed it!
And we all know that TP loves all this outfit changing? Not.
Yes, I agree with TP (and maybe you too?), the change was subtle and just swapping one beige for another may seem hardly worth the effort but I fancied some more reunion thrills.
So my Zara pearly jumper was given its first airing of SS18 too.
And I swapped the heels for Clarks metallic toe flatties.
'Twas but a moment's work to achieve just the right amount of beige!
Sling on a string of pearls (beige).
And Sunday lunch, beige is comin' ta getcha!
A la perchoine.
