Outfit of the day 14/02/17

Another hospital visit today, this time for me. It was a regular check up with my Respiratory Consultant, who keeps an eye on all my various illnesses and coordinates everything. The interesting news is that I am being considered for a trial of a new drug to deal with chronic cough. They will have to see if I am a suitable candidate first. So fingers are firmly crossed.

So, I wore layers again for this visit, quite a few this time as it was such a very cold day, although this particular hospital is always very hot. I chose to wear my most favourite combination of purple and turquoise:

  • Silk scarf, 90cm, La Promenade de Platon, in an asymmetric knot – Hermès. This was my first ever H scarf purchase and has the theme of Ancient Greek sports in turquoise, purple, gold and brick.
  • Cashmere cardigan in lunar blue – Pure Collection. The image below is from their website, but is not the correct colour which is a gorgeous and vibrant blue/teal, closer to the colour of the earrings.
  • Cashmere t-shirt in royal purple – Pure Collection. Again, the true colour is much stronger.
  • Indigo jeans – Klass.
  • Leather wrap bracelet in grape and pale gold – Ferragamo.
  • Blue London topaz stud earrings – Blue Nile.

Ooh, aim forgot to say that I really went purple mad today – can you tell that I luuuurve this colour? I wore matching purple socks and carried my Francesco Biasia purple handbag too.

After the hospital visit, we called into a different garden centre to the usual ones for a quick drink and a walk around, then went home for lunch. In the afternoon I felt very tired and so came up to bed to read and write this post.

Since I last wrote about books and reading, I have finished three! At least I have something to do when I have to take to my bed. Anyway, these were:

  • Cold Kill by Neil White – the last in his DS Laura McGanity series and a nice way to round the whole thing off.
  • The Good Girl by Mary Kubica – a marmite kind of book, according to the reviews on Goodreads. I really enjoyed it, but then I am not too critical when I am reading for my own pleasure. Most of the time these days I read for escapism.
  • A Darkness More Than Night by Michael Connelly – another really gripping book by this great author. I will reading anything he writes about Harry Bosch.

You will probably have realised by now that I love reading crime novels more than any other genre. That may be true, but I also love thrillers, westerns, historical, science fiction, fantasy, adventure, horror……………
