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.

    Oops, didn’t mean to use a question mark in my posting, but wanted to use an exclamation point. Sorry.
