Outfit of the day 11/05/18

I was unable to post yesterday as we were in the middle of a nightmare day and evening, due to some of the more unpleasant effects of living with a family member who has ASD. I won’t go into more detail except to say that I hope he has a good day at work and comes home in a better frame of mind!

Today, however, has been pretty successful so far. I was well enough to accompany Lovely Husband to a local out of town shopping centre where we had the fortune to find everything we were looking for pretty quickly. Amazing! LH bought some new trainers and clothes and I picked up some pretty vests in really nice colours from M&S. I tend to wear camisoles and vests almost all year round; in the Winter under several layers and in warmer months under a t-shirt or blouse. I cannot bear to wear bras any longer, so use nice vests instead.

Today’s outfit:

  • Bright purple cotton mix short-sleeved top – Lands’ End.
  • Frosted lavender cotton mix cardigan – Lands’ End.
  • Indigo jeans – Cotton Traders.
  • Amethyst and gold botanical style earrings – craft centre, Torquay. I also have a matching gold ring which I wear every day.
  • Lilac enamel and gold plain bangle – Halcyon Days.
  • Cream enamel and gold Byzantine bangle – Halcyon Days.
  • Silk stole in purple, green and white – Lilacs – MinkuLUL via Etsy. Tied in a half-bow knot using a MaiTai horn scarf ring.

Yes, I am still in a mad purple phase! I must change to another colour scheme next week: turquoise or bright blue, perhaps?

I hope that you all have wonderful weekends.

Best wishes,

    Ahhh the purple is an excellent choice- it lights up your face( and sounds like something you need right now re the family situation)!!!

      I am not sure whether shades of purple or turquoise are my favourite colours. Could never be a monochrome person as I love colour 😍 ❤️💚💜💛 😍
