I'm going to continue my story about getting ready in 12 minutes, as on my last post about this, the computer unexpectedly died. I thought it better to publish what I had rather than try it again.
In case you're interested, the "bare necessities" of my getting ready whirlwind were: drinking my daily dose of aloe vera, applying sunscreen (factor 30), putting on some make-up, chosing jewellery, quick whizz of comb through hair, and jumping into an outfit that didn't require much thinking. If I'd had more time, I would have worn a striped black and white T shirt under the white jacket, but no worries. No one arrested me for grabbing a white T instead. I wanted to wear the striped shoes, as I think they look nautical and I don't wear them a lot. They were a great bargain at £5, so even though I didn't exactly need them, they followed me home!
This photo shows my well-used white cotton jacket better than the other pictures. It is sort of a waiter's jacket in styling. I got it in a shop in Nice (France) that sold clothes that were techically too young for me to wear. But I really like it, and the snug fit seems to enhance other outfits. It has lived through having coffee and chocolate spilled on it, and getting grubby on car and train journeys. It even survived my falling on my elbow without the sleeve ripping, so it is made of , ahem.... sturdy stuff!
How about you? Have you ever had to get ready on the fly? Can you beat my 12 minute record?!
