Darling Daughter has a keen eye for vintage treasures and she found this amazing leather handbag.
~ Kelly Style ~
The closest to an Hermes Kelly bag that this Humble Hostess will ever own!
Having a daughter who knows your taste and who shops a lot is quite convenient!
I rarely go thrifting anymore unless I am with her...
~ I am trying not to spend much money
and to be content with less. ~
My wardrobe is much smaller than it was when I was gainfully employed.
My retirement lifestyle is casual
than when I was working.
Every morning I put on my
things to wear when I am gardening.
My walking gear consists of a pair of black knit capri length pants
a tee top
bamboo pop sox
~ Casual dressing is not sloppy dressing. ~
Classic clothes are worn
when I go out
running my errands
with my husband
sister and Mother.
Clothes in the past couple of years have not "worn out."
There are a pair of skinny NYDJ that have faded but they are still fine to wear.
(I do not wear ripped jeans but faded are OK)
A classic white shirt was sadly stained beyond bleaching
by a spot of unknown origin...
Clothes purchased for summer include:
white linen pants
white and grey long linen top
white linen tank top
white V neck sweater
blue and white striped short sleeved tunic top
black Clark sandals
~ I do not plan on buying anything more this season. ~
I find that most mornings I work around The Humble Bungalow and go for my walk then come home and freshen up.
I will change clothes
if I am going out running errands or playing bridge with the ladies at the club...
I stay in my fitness gear
to bake bread
read my book
~ I do like to "play around" with accessories ~
a pretty scarf
a stack of sterling vintage bangles
or perhaps a strand of pearls
~ Editing the wardrobe has been a great exercise ~
It has shown me what I really love to wear
~ I wear the same styles and shapes ~
When I shop I tend to buy similar items over and over.
With that thought in mind I really can avoid the shops unless my current pieces fall apart or become laundry fatalities!
~ Recreational shopping is not high on my radar these days ~
Although if a friend wants me to accompany her on a shopping trip
I am more than happy to help her find some new things!
It is fun spending other peoples' money.
Our Humble Bungalow House and Garden
is where we are funnelling most of our money these days.
~ Plants, Paint and Pipes ~
~ It is fun living vicariously through bloggers whose focus is on fashion ~
Thought you might like to see this cute sign that I recently saw posted on the gate of a home in our neighbourhood...
walking never fails to offer opportunities for beautiful and interesting photographs.
Do you think a dachshund might be in residence?
