I am going to show you my outfit, but not me wearing it! That’s because I am so hot and sticky and must look pretty awful 😂🤣😂!
I bought this turquoise linen dress from Pure Collection a couple of years ago. The colour is nice, but the weave is very loose and it looks like a sack on me. I don’t really care about that as I only wear it in the house and garden and it does keep me quite cool. It is good for wafting – a word used a lot on one of my favourite blogs: That’s Not My Age. As I have given up wearing a bra (I have always hated them and decided to throw them all away when I retired), the dress is opaque enough to hide anything that might be embarrassing too!
My only adornment today is the cute teapot, cup and saucer necklace from Bill Skinner that I bought a few months ago. The heat is even cutting down on my tea drinking as I have switched over to water, mainly!
I can never resist the Lands’ End sales, especially the main ones in the Summer and Winter. I really tried to ignore the present one and hung on until a few days ago, when I gave in. As a huge fan of The Vivienne Files blog, I have really taken on board some of her ideas about wardrobe planning. The colours I favour have changed a little since I grew out my grey hair, but I think that I am happy now with my choices. My two main base colours are navy and grey; my accent colours are bright blue, turquoise/teal/aqua, purple/lavender/lilac, and bright pink. Looking at my wardrobe, I realised that a couple of long-sleeved t-shirts in bright blues would be very versatile additions. Here they are:
The fabric is a very fine supima cotton jersey with a soft and silky feel. I will use both as t-shirts in Spring and late Summer/early Autumn, then as base layers in colder months and also in bed with more traditional pyjama bottoms. As they only cost £7.50 each, I think I will get my money’s worth out of them!
Apparently, tomorrow will be cooler. I hope so as I really want to attend my counselling session.
