Just 2 weeks ago I went short with my hair again. After a week at the beach I still felt it was too long and too ‘inbetweeny’. Not one to mess about I went back to my wonderful stylist, Chadd, yesterday and went even shorter, and then Gina gave me a lovely dark chocolate color. I feel super sassy – it is amazing how great the ‘right’ cut can make you feel. I love the darker color too and my hair looks lovely and healthy and shiny – what’s left of it:)
The Mango trousers are fabulous – these are a US Small (Eur Medium – they label for the larger US woman!) and they are perfect.
I adore this sleeveless blazer – perfect for throwing on to dress up an outfit. It will be worn a lot over the Spring here. It’s an unusual color choice for me but I quite like it for a change – it’s a taupe/cream color. The fabric is lovely quality too – not shiny at all.
It’s freezing here today so the sweaters are out – totally random weather!
Oh and I am getting my navel pierced tomorrow ready for the summer months…the mid-life crisis continues!
Come on I know we all have a pair. I wear mine nearly every day at this time of year – they are perfect for slipping on for nipping out of the house to the yard or down to the bus stop – no where too public. Yes I’m talking about Uggs – frowned on by stylists around the world, yet worn by everyone. I just put mine on to take the Halloween decorations down – yes, yes I know it’s November 7th but I’ve been busy;) They’re also perfect for nursing blistered feet after their first 6 mile run in 6 months yesterday…yes I’m hobbling around today.
I prefer the simple Classic Ugg – these are grey – but my favorite pair were the short classic in sand – I wore them out over 2 pregnancies.
Here’s my catalog pose.
First of all my Golden Goose arrived!! Yay!!! SO fast!! But boo!! Bugger they are too big!! I ordered 39s – both my other pairs are 39s – but these leopard print ones are ENORMOUS! So off they go back, with the 38s on their way to me. Why must a brand be so inconsistent with sizing? The good thing is they are lovely – quite muted and not too loud at all – if you can say that for leopard print:)
It’s definitely Fall here now – the jeans and boots are out in full force, along with scarves – it’s very exciting! This weekend we have Fall break from school too so it should be fun packed with play dates for Poppy and Hugh, and Mom and Dad:)
Today I am wearing – shock, gasp, horror – lots of ‘old’ stuff. My Boden drop shoulder jumper (from the clearance), Gap camo jeans, Zara scarf and grey Newbury boots. Look at that turf behind me! We have a whole new yard to enjoy – no more rotting swing set causing a hazard to anyone!
Monday saw me in my new H&M ‘coatigan’, Fayza jeans, Vince Ninas and an old Zara black tee. The sunglasses are Chanel from last year (similar here).
Tuesday I wore my fabulous leopard print hat, old AllSaints tee, old J.Crew jacket (similar here), camo jeans from Gap and my canvas Newbury boots. Yes, yes, yes – quite a few ‘older’ loved items coming back out for Fall!
Yesterday I eventually changed into my Boden St. Ives jumper, Fayza jeans, Havaianas and J.Crew wool cap – I was very lazy and worked from home while some burley men worked in the yard laying the turf:) Sorry for the fuzzy photo – I think I was still shaking after a tabata session in spin class – I thought I might actually hurl it was such hard work!
Unfortunately we underestimated the amount of turf we needed so they’ll be back next week to finish the job…
My weekend starts tonight with a girls’ night out – margaritas and tacos – I can’t wait!
