Eeny, meeny, miney, moe

I spent last week in dresses and skirts thanks to amazingly good weather in the west of Ireland, where you usually expect it to be 15 degrees and raining in August. One of the days was a bit chilly and I put on jeans and felt really uncomfortable (ok, maybe that was because of all the holiday cake and ice-cream). So, one of my resolutions for autumn is to wear more dresses. I’ve already been feeling a bit bored with skinny jeans and trousers, so am going to try capri’s, in fact I have a pair in the sewing machine now.

So, in the light of this major lifestyle choice, I put on a skirt yesterday. I like olive green a lot, it goes with so much. I also tried my H&M Hasbeens, which are so comfortable. I would love a pair of the nude sky highs, but given the number of days when you can wear sandals here, I really can’t justify the purchase. I just noticed that I’m slouching in the photo as when I’m wearing heels, you can’t see the top of me in the mirror. I really should get that mirror hung on the wall. And stand up straight.

Of course by the time the afternoon came, it was dull and chilly so I switched to olive skinny combats and sandals from Zara kids. I have size 4 feet, sometimes 3 so I always take a look in the children’s shoe sections, I’ve had quite a few good buys over the years.
The jacket is from Zara as is the skirt, homemade silk top, H&M necklace and doctored Kate Spade bag

 

Back to the old routine

That’s what my grandfather used to say on Sunday evenings after supper. A little sigh of resignation and ‘Back to the old routine’. I felt a bit like that this morning, after our holiday, wading through the laundry and doing an on-line shop. Yes, the glamour, but at least I was well dressed!

Today I wore old Oasis skinny combats, a Zara lace top that was once a dress (I wear it much more now) Topshop ponte blazer, old snakeskin sandals and a bag I love. It’s a Kate Spade, originally it was coral but I dyed it, then removed that handle and replaced it with a chain I made from two necklaces!

My day cheered up considerably when I went shopping for a skateboard with one of my boys, actually he tells me it’s a Penny Board. The colours are fantastic, I am very taken with the pink with blue wheels. Can you see me on it, nipping to the shops?
