Larkin’ about.

Slowly moving back to the land of the living today.  Which is good as it is Hugh’s 5th birthday tomorrow and he is VERY excited.  So excited that last night he was trying to convince me it was Wednesday today.  Given my jet lag I almost believed him.

Today I took my inspiration from a couple of my favorite US bloggers – Tiffany Wendel Personal Styling and Sheree from It’s Not That Deep.  Both are Moms, and REALLY cool Moms at that.  I love browsing their sites, and though I’m not sure I can get away with all their looks, they certainly provide great inspiration.  Both of them have worn a black fur gilet over a denim jacket recently:)  I’m also trying to wear all my warm, furry things before it warms up and they get packed away to the downstairs closet!

I started having some fun on our big rock in the garden – a rock I only venture near in the winter as I am sure it provides shelter for snakes in the summer!

Fur gilet – Skaist-Taylor for NM and Target // Denim jacket – Gap (old)  // Red jeans – Zara (old) //  Top – The Limited collection, Marks & Spencer (old) // Sneakers – Converse

Complete change of subject now, but I was on my drive into work this morning listening to NPR as usual.  They reviewed a book, Wave, written by Sonali Deraniyagala.  She survived the horrific Tsunami on Boxing Day 2004, but lost all her family to it.  It was heart wrenching to listen to her story – but I really now want to read this book – here’s the NPR link.

    I’ve literally just commented on Helen’s blog about people looking cool in Converse and there you are looking damn cool in yours! You rock that look! I so need to invest in a denim jacket this year x

    So fun with the gilet and denim jacket. Might have to see if I can pull a version of this but without red jeans ( I don’t have any).

    Thanks for the NPR link, I missed this review – very strong and moving, definitely a book I should add to my list. I picked my current book “Flight Behaviour” following hearing the author interviewed on NPR. Seeing how great you look in your red jeans has made me want to wear mine again – however we are due 8 inches of snow this weekend so I might have to wait another week or two!
