Outfit of the day 28/02/17

Well, I am back posting properly again – the last three posts had been written in advance and scheduled. WordPress is a great blogging platform. In fact, some of you may remember that I developed a whole school library website, Library Online (sadly now no longer available), using WordPress.

The reason for my absence was a really nasty virus on top of my list of chronic conditions. As it was a coughing virus, you can probably imagine the effect on my overall health. I won’t go into the nasty details, but I will say that my poor sons had to lift me up off the floor several times, clean me up, and put me back in bed. I only managed to go out of the house yesterday after around ten days stuck indoors.

Today, I have been to the hairdresser and to take LH to the doctor (I had to drive him for a change as he was having diabetic retinopathy and they do not recommend driving afterwards). I am now resting in bed writing this post. I won’t show you a photo of my hairdo as it started raining as I walked to the car and now it is too gloomy to take photos using my iPad. Also, although I like the cut and colour, I am not so keen on the blow dry as it is too over the top curly/frizzy even for me. It is my fault, though, as I always tell my hairdresser to use her imagination when she blowdries as I usually wash it out again pretty quickly!

Anyway, today’s outfit breaks all of my colour “rules” as I am wearing black. Yes, the colour that does not suit me any more! My excuse is that I am not a wasteful person and, as I already own a black cashmere jumper and cardigan, I need to wear them occasionally. When they eventually wear out, I will not replace them with the same again in black, but will change to a different colour. As black does not do any favours for my skin these days, I always wear a scarf which does flatter. In this instance my scarf is a large 140×140 cm, silk chiffon beauty by Leonard. It is sooooo soft and snugly and a bit flawed as I bought it second hand. It has a design of feathers in grey, white, black, tan, cream, yellow and turquoise and it drapes wonderfully.

All of today’s outfit:

  • Black cashmere v-neck jumper – Marks and Spencer.
  • Black cashmere and merino v-neck cardigan – Woolovers.
  • Indigo jeans – Klass.
  • Black, brown and leopard print snake skin and gold bangle – Aspinal.
  • Grey crystal stud earrings – Swarovski (these also have dangly crystals which can be attached).
  • Feather scarf in silk chiffon – Leonard.

Yesterday’s trip out of the house was to the library so that I could pick up some print books. I will post about what I have been reading recently tomorrow.
