It’s been deathly dreary here in Altanta – I could barely see the car in front of me this morning it was so misty and damp. It just makes me feel tired. I’m trying to make more of an effort dressing each morning in order to perk myself up!
Yesterday I wore my leather culottes – gone are the days where I ‘save things for best’.
Culottes – eBay store // Boots – Zara (old) // Jumper – Everlane sleeveless turtleneck // Jacket – Mango (half price on sale)
I love these culottes so much and now I am looking for something a little more tailored like these – let me know if you see any similar!
Today I am trying to lift my spirits, dampened by the crap weather, with my sparkly boots and fur!
Jumper – TopShop (old – similar listed below) // Jeans – Zara // Boots – Zara // Fur – Zara // Tank under jumper – H&M
Oh and you know I did a post the other day stating it was ‘the last of the sales post‘ – errrm maybe not quite. Many of you follow Eve’s blog and I am smitten by her new Alexander McQueen bag – she has such exquisite taste. I have been looking for a large tote for sometime to take the place of my YSL Roady which I still adore but is a little beaten up these days after almost 3 years of daily usage. Anyway look what I found in final sale on NAP reduced by 40%:
It’s not identical to Eve’s which is a good thing as we share so many similar items – but it is big enough to be a great carry on bag for travel and yet also function as a great every day bag for work and carting stuff around for the kids. Mmmm tempted I am.
It’s been a funny old week what with feeling ill, lots of Christmas services, the end of school and my Father in law arriving. I feel like I’m spinning a bit and it’s hard to reconcile it is Christmas Day next Thursday. Fortunately I have a very organized Husband so gifts are wrapped and food lists are written. We’re having a buffet on Christmas day. After Thanksgiving I never feel like roasting a turkey again so we’ll be feasting on ham in coca cola, smoked salmon and dates stuffed with goats cheese wrapped in prosciutto – yum! Also my fabulous FIL arrived bearing gifts of pickled onion monster munch and piccalilli so I’ll be tucking into those too!
On Friday we headed out for a boozy lunch to welcome him and celebrate the start of the Holidays for us.
Last night, before cooking steaks, we went for our annual drive around Buckhead admiring the Christmas lights. There are some corkers this year and we saw the biggest inflatable Santa ever!
Today will be a lovely lazy Sunday eating BBQ and watching football so I am dressed appropriately.
One final note to end my odd week – my baby brother who is only 31 on Tuesday had an operation yesterday. They discovered testicular cancer last week so he was very fortunate to be operated on so quickly. Please get all the men in your life to check themselves regularly – I was shocked to learn it is most common between the ages of 20 and 40 and yet is one of the most treatable forms of cancer. It’s hard being here when all this is going on at home so I am sending virtual hugs to my little brother xxx
