Outfit of the day 05/11/18

Can’t you tell how much I love my navy cable jumper and cord trousers (both from Lands’ End)? I think it is about time that I had a change of colour scheme for my outfits – teal or turquoise, perhaps? Maybe grey? I might even get these trousers in grey as they are so comfortable and wash really well. Some may think them frumpy, but I am past caring in my present state!

Anyway, I dug out a little rectangular silk scarf that I bought decades ago from John Lewis. It is in navy and cream with a houndstooth pattern and signed by Richard Allan. The navy hems are hand rolled, which is a sign of good quality. I had no idea about this when I originally bought the scarf, but I have looked after it and it is in a very good condition. Checking this blog, I last wore it back in March 2017, if you are interested in finding out a bit more.

I tied the scarf by knotting two corners together so that it looks kind of like a collar around my neck – I really like this way of wearing it. Years ago, I used to tuck it inside my gorgeous navy wool and cashmere coat. Sadly, that coat succumbed to the dreaded moths!

Today’s outfit:

  • Navy cotton cable jumper – Lands’ End.
  • Navy stretch cotton cord trousers – Lands’ End.
  • Silver Celtic style earrings.
  • Navy enamel and gold Geometric bangle – Halcyon Days.
  • Navy suede ankle boots – Duo Boots.

After a weekend with deafening bangs and crashes from fireworks, I hope it isn’t too loud tonight. I used to love Bonfire Night, but cannot go out and enjoy it at all these days. I hope my UK readers have had fun, especially if you have children. My childhood memories of this time of year are so magical.

Best wishes,

🎇🎆🎇🎆🎇

    What an interesting way to wear a scarf ? Thanks for sharing the good idea. I do like wearing gray because it goes with so many things; it’s really a neutral and would like very nice with all your blue pieces. That’s a lovely outfit today.
