Outfit of the day 02/10/18

Hairdresser day! Yes, it is six weeks since my last haircut and I am so pleased that I was able to go. Lovely Husband drove me there and back and I was even strong enough to walk across town to my favourite shop. More about that later.

First of all, here is my usual before and after photo collage. It is now over a year since I last dyed my hair and quite a few months since all of the colour grew out. I really love the varied shades from silver to charcoal and, although the texture of my hair is still very thin and fine, I feel happy with the “new me”.

I went a bit mad with leopard print today! Probably very over the top, but it felt like a fun look and several people stopped me and admired my amazing shoes…

After my haircut, I went to the Sonrisa Boutique to pick up a pretty brooch, which I will show you on Thursday. The staff really use social media well and took a photo of me which they posted on Facebook, with my permission. I am uploading it here so you can see the whole outfit, including the wonderful shoes! (Sorry about the tum, she took the photo so fast that I didn’t have time to suck it in!!!!).

Now I am going to start a new book from my library pile. Reading roundup post tomorrow, I hope.

Best wishes,

    Hi, just found your blog and love the way you show your outfits of the day and describe what you’re wearing and where the clothing and accessories come from. I too buy MaiTai scarf rings, and some of her lovely jewelry. Thank you for sharing and looking forward to more.
