How YOU Doin'?

How you doin'?
  I've just typed that in my best Joey voice.  Impressed?  Am I versatile or what?!

It's been a fraught week and one day soon I may man up and tell you about it.  So I haven't been doin' too well.  Nothing serious, but just ueberly serious to me.  However, today I'm keeping it light with an outfit post.  Oh how soothing they are.  I love reading others' outfit posts, especially when the daily grind grinds just that little bit too hard - they are the perfect antidote and bring a soothing glow to all that is dark.  IMHO. 

Recently I mentioned that I actually had some going out dates in my diary (SEE HERE).  Unusual for me.  This week started with a catch up meal with friends at The Imperial.

When it came to attire, all I needed to do was check my post for outfit ideas.  And this one screamed at me. 

There is something about this simple winter white sweater dress that screams "wear me" for so many occasions and weathers.  I chose a simple strand of beads to accessorise, linking the colour to the boots.


Oh yes, my love affair with these berry knee boots continues!

A pash tied "fashionably scruffy" around the neck to ward off the evening cold air, and I was good to go.

The Photographer has a huge dislike of my badly tied scarfage but sometimes a gal's gotta focus on health and not style, eh?

I'm my most humble of opinions, winter white and simple berry boots and accessories gives me all the cose and style I need, whilst making me feel just right for a February trip to a nice restaurant.

The Imperial Hotel was our destination.  It's situated at the south-western most tip of the island.  The drive along the coast to the restaurant is so uplifting.

The restaurant has uplifting views too.

We dined up here.

The hotel is the larger white house on the left above.  Of course, we could have taken a leisurely stroll along the beach after eating.

We could have watched the sun set over the bay of this pretty little fisherman's harbour.

But we did none of those things.  It was evening.  February. The elements which make up cold and dark winter's night.  So we went straight home after dinner.

Oh how I am looking forward to spring and summer light evenings.  An evening stroll.  You too?  Have you had your fill of winter now?  Are you ready to pack up the winter whites and the berry boots?  Are you ready for white jeans and loafers?

You know, right now I wondering How You Doin'?

A la perchoine.


  1. Oh that's a lovely dress, and I like the burgundy necklace and scarf with it, a great little touch of colour. Sounds like a lovely meal, even if you didn't stay long afterwards - I always spend more time at home in winter too.

    Hope you had a great weekend. The heatwave continued here unfortunately, so it was another fairly quiet and aircon filled weekend for us!

    1. Hi Mica, great to hear from you and thanks for your sweet words. Will your summer ever end?! Though right now I like the idea of your warmth, our temps will go down to around 2-3c next week. Hugs, x.

  2. LOVE winter white and love you in this dress! You have me worried, do not like my Mary to be out of sorts. Here’s hoping this week is much better! I can hear your Joey impression from across the on pretty lady, spot on! xo

    1. Oh thanks, you cute sweetie, I still love Friends.
      But please don't fret, it's just miniscule yet Thursday I'd reached meltdown and 24 hours later everything was so much better - what a difference a day really does make!
      Hugs, x.

  3. My favourite winterdress is this one, PP. Where scarfage is concerned, the scruffier ('casual') the more interesting! Milk it, girl, as when spring arrives, those lovely, comfy, scruffy scarves will take a backseat for a while.

    1. Oh soooo right sweet Duchesse. There's always a slight girlie panic as the seasons end, when we feel we haven't quite milked the season's beauties quite enough, eh.
      Have a really nice week, hug you lots, x.

  4. I'm sure sorry you've had a rough week, ugh, sending positive vibes your way my friend and of course my prayers for whatever it is you're dealing with. Love you!!!
    You wear that winter white like a boss! And the berry boots are so pretty, the perfect compliment!
    You live in such a beautiful place, oh boy I can't even imagine looking out at those views from a nearby restaurant!
    Love your Joey voice btw!
    Hugs to you!

    1. Thanks for the prayers but it's only a very little problem and I'm a bit embarrassed that it's come across worse than it is. And I'm crossing fingers that's it's now done and dusted. Thanks for all your sweet words, maybe one day vlog my best Joey for you all! Hugs sweetness, x

  5. You look very glamorous, Mary! Love the sweater dress with the boots and the scarf.

    Hope things have settled back to 'normal' for you.

    Bring on the sunshine, warmth and evening strolls for sure!

    1. Oh you are so sweet, Vronni, it's a go-to I feel very comfy in. Fingers crossed all is back to normal, what a difference a few days make.
      After our polar vortex I'm hoping it's going to be hello spring, you beauty! Hugs my lovely, x.

  6. I'm always so jealous of your sweater dresses. I still haven't found one I like on me. You look fabulous!

    1. Guess it's right time, right place with sweater dresses. Check out the lovely Lauren's dress
      Hope this helps. Hugs, x.
