Lists. They're a moving goal post eh?
What is there about them that as fast as you complete your tasks, the bigger the list grows, infinitely.
My To Do By Mid-November started with 20 tasks, a nice round number nearly typed up on a crisp white sheet.
It's now nearly December and I'm still working on it - the number has grown to 26, many have hand-scribbled addendums and the sheet is crumpled and coffee-stained. And I've only managed 4 of 11 of the To Do By End-November.
Oh what the heck, I'm off to see Bohemian Rhapsody this evening, to-do list slippage be damned !!
That intro is my way of making you feel a little better if you too are already underperforming in your Christmas Countdown challenges. And if you are, I suggest you take yourself away to the cinema for a few hours too!
So as I continue to wade through my ever-growing to-do list, I leave you with some day to day outfits worn when the leggings and t shirt uniform is torn off.
What I'm finding is that by posting everyday outfits rather than, err, more thought-through outfits, I'm achieving one of my blog goals, that being to smarten up my everyday appearance. So whilst I plough through my to-do list and have little time (or inclination) for stand-alone outfit posts, I hope you are happy with this approach. Um, are you? I'd love to hear from you.
Anyhoo. My first outfit is a celebration of #slowfashion.
My old ca. 2002 suede skirt.
My Y2K leather cap - I did warn you you'd be seeing a lot of it!
Blue plaid shirt and black jeans.
Black T and UV cardi, charitied scarf.
Soft orange twinset and leoprint.
Cosy cardi, #woolovers summer sale.
And two observations from these pics.
1. I've hardly been out of my old Pikolinos boots. They're 15yrs+ old but I've fallen back in love with them this winter, so comfy for my daily constitutions and for generally mooching about in.
2. I've also be mainly wearing black jeans. And mostly M&S skinnies. I bought M&S super skinnies in a smaller size when I lost a bit of weight and they are my go-to-most-days jeans because, well, they're pretty much the only jeans that truly fit me. Plus they are just what I want from jeans - no leg wrinkling and thin fabric, so no feeling of claustrophobia. And for that very reason they wash a dream and in a trice are dry and ready to report back for duty. What is there not to like about #mandsjeans eh?!
And I'm seeing my clear favourite pieces this season are a suede skirt, a leather cap, black skinnies and Pikolinos boots.
What are your current go-tos?
A la perchoine,
