Mainly photos today as I am shattered after polishing off a bottle of cava last night while watching the final 3 episodes of ‘Game of Thrones’. How sad am I? Though actually it was quite a relaxing way to spend an evening.
Today has been exhausting – after almost 4 hours in the salon I now have red – yes very red hair. I was going to go for something tamer but then questioned why. With no corporate job to worry about and an understanding boss (My Husband) why shouldn’t I try something a little wilder? So no half measures here we went for red. Here’s the finished product – VERY red in the sun. I love it – though Husband just waffled something about ‘Camden Market’ and ‘a dog on a piece of string’ so not sure he is entirely taken with it yet – but I don’t style my hair for him so there.
Before I headed out I decided to wear all khaki and my Ash Gwen sneakers. In hindsight there may be signs of some mid-life crisis arising – studs and red hair – hmmm – that or I need to move to Berlin. The hairdresser said I looked ‘very European’ whatever that means.
Then off for tacos with the children for some required R&R and a margarita before the long weekend – Monday is Columbus Day so the children are off school Monday and Tuesday for Fall break.
On my return home I was thrilled to find my Net-a-Porter.com parcel had arrived – the Acne Pistols are divine and darker than online which is a good thing. They also fit fabulously.
Now here’s the thing – I didn’t quite tell the whole truth about my order as I also ordered the Rag and Bone Newbury. Unfortuntely these are equally divine and if anything comfier – with a padded foot bed and ultra soft leather – so they are keepers too.
My Sam Edelman Lisle boots had to be returned unfortunately due to faulty stitching but with these beauties I don’t think I’ll be wearing anything else this Fall…Both boots will work for me for day and night and I have to say it’s nice investing in shoes which will get used year after year. Coats, boots and bags are definitely worth a few extra dollars – a lesson I am learning slowly.
I’m a happy lady with red hair and new boots.
