I wore this outfit the other day, and felt OK in it, til I stopped in one of my favourite shops and my friend Kerry said, "You're wearing that?? It's May!!" But then she had to admit, it was freezing out, so perhaps not such a dumb idea to wrap up.
I quite like the tiered khaki skirt teamed with the short tweed jacket. You might notice the photo is not of me in said outfit (my hair needs to be mowed) so thought I would post it on its own. I do like the short tan booties, but once the heels go, they will go to the Great Boot Heaven, as they are completely utterly worn out. I tell you, you'd think when you pay £2 for a pair of boots they would last more than 10 years, wouldn't you?
This is a close up of the brooch on the blazer. I hope you can make it out that it is a stag's head with a turquoise stone above it. It makes me feel quite Scottish, quite trundling-through-the-heather type of gal. Imagination is a good thing! It came to live with me after an expedition of what I call "foraging in the forest". I know it didn't come from a charity shop, but it did come at a give-away price from somewhere else, although I can't remember where. I think I got it in a box of stuff.
Many, many thanks to all who are commenting on my blog. You have no idea how much it cheers me to think of people looking at my outfits and reading my words. Blogging rocks!! So if you are reading but haven't commented yet, please do. It'll make my day!
