You’d think I might’ve learnt this important lesson at my age. But no.
Most of my going out is for early dinners with my partner and the kids. I try, most of the time, to dress up a bit more than usual. Yesterday evening we went for dinner locally. My outfit should’ve worked ok – Warehouse leopard print jeans (I bought when pg last year & saved to wear), Swedish Hasbeens, cream drape front blouse from ASOS (with cream Zara vest underneath)
Then I added a Hulquist pomegranate necklace, then I added a Kenneth Jay Lane coin bracelet and my new neon watch, a leopard scarf, Mint Velvet leather jacket and a Roccabella ring. And then I started adding to my make up. I’d gone for strong eyebrows and a smudge of brown on my lash line; more made up than for every day but quite subtle. Until I added a Lipstick Queen deep pink lippy and “Hello Aunt Sally” guffaws greeted my emergence from the bathroom.
By now we were in a tearing hurry so off I went.
So, I have learnt that the jeans are too big (the second photo was from when we got home), the Swedish Hasbeens are too pinky rather than neutral so didn’t work with the coloured jeans. And too much make up doesn’t suit anyone!
