Me and denim (seldom do we meet!)

I'm not really sure what I have against denim, other than everyone seems to wear it, and it just isn't glamorous to my way of thinking (no matter how much you pay for it, or whose label is stitched on it!)

So, here I am in my one denim jacket, which I like because it is ridiculously short, and was "thrifted".  The stray threads seem to have a sort of green tinge to them, which made me think it might have been dyed at one time, but the rest of it seems to be the normal colour.  So it's a bit of mystery as well.  There's a bonus!

Just about to tuck into something gorgeous at this funky coffee house near home, which has been started up by some enterprising young people.  Who says the young don't have ambition and "get up and go"!

Whole outfit, head to toe: charity shops
(Sorry image is a bit blurry. I look younger that way!)

I live in jeans - and I think you look lovely in denim!

Ah yes, the beauty of "accidental" blurring. Ha! You look happy and fabulous in your green-tinged mystery denim jacket. Now I need to get myself some croissants and coffee... (I laughed when you mentioned how a strange woman flung herself at "Al" - no, I don't mean you but that woman on the street! teehee)

Hi Rosemary! Lovely to hear from you. You are a girl after my own heart. I know what you mean about denim...I have a couple of pairs of jeans and that's about it. Denim always looks great on other people!
Loving the blog.

I try to avoid denim in my workday, but I often wear it in my off hours. And Like you, I often admire young entrepreneurs. And, yes, there is something about blurry photos!

Love you in this denim jacket with the interesting background; your backgrounds always fascinate me. I also love your comments about young entrepreneurs. There's plenty of those around here too!

Many thanks for all your comments! I must admit, it really is a thrill for me to think of others actually reading my blog and checking out my outfits. So, hugs and kisses to everybody who commented. If you've looked and NOT commented, please do so and make my day!
