I've been wearing my minimalist wardrobe
adding different accessories so I don't feel bored or stale.
I have worn these boots 3-4 times every week.
Tunic tops with black slim leggings and boots
is a silhouette that works well for me.
Scarves are my "go to" accessory...
my scarf wardrobe is fairly large.
Long oblongs in cashmere, wool, cottons and blends
patterned prints, plaids and plains.
always with hand rolled edges
from Hermes to Lanvin.
I look for scarves whenever I go into consignment shops.
My budget does not allow for exclusivity of purchasing brand new Hermes.
I've been mixing up earrings
I used to wear the same combination every day and change only for evenings out.
Variety makes my minimalist wardrobe feel fresh.
I have decided that to simplify dressing
it cannot be large or be full of splashy prints.
I am sticking to the neutral shades.
The Fashion Police have advised that this will be fine as long as I wear some red gloss
and add a bit of colour elsewhere.
My new Caroline Vaile wrap top
half price at my fave boutique on "The Avenue"
made in the USA
a fabulous weighted knit in jersey
doesn't hug the torso like a girdle and show off any ripples
a tank or camisole is needed underneath
I fear that I would look like a woman of ill repute if I neglected an undergarment!
Our son has a birthday this weekend...
he'll be turning 31.
He's a fabulous fellow and Mr. HB and I are so proud of him.
I bought this book after seeing the movie Julie and Julia which I loved.
Hope that it will be as entertaining as the movie.
The UK Country Living magazine arrived...
I savour this with a mug of tea
from the delicious cover to the very last page.
Doing a little research on what the designers are showing for Spring.
Spending will be held to a minimum as the reno is in full swing...
Hope that I can re work my basics from last spring and summer.
I don't really "follow" fashion to the extent that I am a slave to fashion.
Following the latest trends feels strange to me...
There's a fine balance when one hits the other side of 50
not wanting to enter the frump zone
or looking as if one is trying to relive their youth...
I wear what suits my body type, what makes me feel good and what I can afford.
Dreaming of a quiet weekend
sleeping in later
What are your plans?
