Outfit of the day 08/10/18

At the weekend I did my twice-yearly wardrobe swapover. I don’t have a large closet space in our bedroom (one rail for tops and another for longer items, plus various drawers), so I have to keep some clothes in one section of Younger Son’s large triple wardrobe. I sorted through all of my warm weather clothing, retaining vests and t-shirts to act as base layers, and moving out light and thin dresses, jackets, skirts and trousers. Some items went into the charity shop pile.

I then went through my colder weather clothing (again some items were put aside for the charity shop), and re-hung it on my bedroom rails. As I did this, I re-arranged all my tops into colours so that it will be easier to find items that I need. So, for example, all of my cardigans, t-shirts, cashmere, blouses and twinsets in navy are all together, no matter what fabric they are made from. Thicker and heavier sweaters are stored in drawers as I don’t like to put them on clothes hangers. Trousers (including jeans), skirts, dresses and jackets are all on a different rail.

Whilst my wardrobe was empty, I took the opportunity to give it a good clean, replace moth repellers and tidy up my shoe collection. I also keep a bag packed with items I might need if I am taken into hospital, so I double-checked the contents. This is a sensible precaution as I have been taken there by ambulance several times over the last few years.

I wish I had a better space to store my growing handbag collection! Oh, for one of those glamorous closets that you see in magazines 😍.

Today has been rather ordinary, although I have really enjoyed my book, which I will write about on Wednesday. I have tried to dress nicely, though, and am wearing my best navy cashmere jumper for the first time this season. This outfit feels very fresh and cheerful 😁.

Outfit of the day 08/10/18 with Karine Assaf’ A Feminist at Heart scarf

Today’s outfit:

  • Navy cashmere v-neck jumper – John Lewis. This is a lovely bright navy.
  • Navy cotton stretch cord trousers – Lands’ End.
  • Navy suede ankle boots – Duo Boots.
  • Cobalt blue crystal and silver earrings – Sonrisa Boutique.
  • Blue Iris leather and light gold Vara wrap bracelet – Ferragamo.
  • Silk scarf, 70cm, in blues, white, orange and grey – A Feminist at Heart – Karine Assaf. Tied loosely using a MaiTai horn scarf ring.

I wonder if any of you have noticed that I am wearing lipstick more often? I have never been keen on lippie, but have realised that it really lifts my face, especially with grey hair. I have also found one that I like and that seems to stay put, despite my awful habit of biting it off! Perhaps I can now begin to understand my Mum, who wouldn’t leave the house without it!

Best wishes,

💙💛💜❤️💚
