That’ll be me not Kenny or Glenn, who for 2 guys in their 70s put on an amazing show last night. They sang all their classics and even though Glenn needed 3 teleprompters he rallied the crowd with jokes regarding memory loss. Poor guy – growing old can be cruel sometimes – physically he looks amazing and his tenor voice still sounds crystal clear. As he sang his last song, with 3 of his children behind him in the band, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house – I was sobbing! Kenny was pretty awesome too, though I did feel a bit short changed by ‘The Gambler’ which personally I think should have been his encore instead of ‘Islands in the Stream’ – I never realized so many of his hits were ballads – MM was not impressed…AC/DC is much more up his alley! The AJC have written a great review here. I danced my pants off and enjoyed a bottle of cava along with our picnic so yes a little worse for wear today – I shall be spending it holding the sofa down watching the Tour de France. Incidentally the Tour is going from Limoux to Foix today where, in my experience, you can get the best omelet and frites followed by the most expensive MacDonalds in the World!
You can just make out Glenn here in the white shirt:
The best omelet and frites back in Limoux in 2010!
Hugh liked his nuggets too:)
For the show I went a little bit country and wore my Boden Boho tunic which I love – so comfy and yet quite dressy – perfect for a summer evening out. It’s currently in the sale at $82.80 – still pricey but worth it in my eyes for a great summer dress. I should also mention the amazing customer service I had from Boden this week. They further reduced the price of several items – some of which I had bought at the start of the sale – after one quick email to them they credited my Boden account with the price difference of the items and checked my other orders for me to see if any other items had been reduced – so I now have $95 ‘extra’ sitting waiting to be spent when the new AW collection goes live! Boden truly are fabulous.
I wore it with my new Sam Edelman Louie boots in rose taupe – they are just gorgeous – such an unusual color, especially for a boot and the leather is exquisitely soft.
Earlier in the day we headed out to the park with the children and Tennyson. The weather is a bit overcast here with lots of storms rumbling through so it wasn’t really pool weather. I wore my Express Zelda white crops which I love and have great stretch, my white Converse – I always forget how fun and comfortable these are to wear, and a steal from the Zara sale – a $10 oversize t-shirt in a lovely flamingo pink – really soft and drapey. Since I got the Boden Bloom oil cloth beach bag in the sale for the pool I’m now using my Union Jack Beachcomber bag for day use – it’s so fun but unfortunately sold out.
