Yes, you read that correctly. I actually went to the hairdresser’s today and had my hair done. It is about six months since I last went and my hair had grown quite a lot and was very messy. She gave it a good trim, but I decided to keep some of the length and not have it cut really short again. I might change my mind next time, but I like my curls. They seem to disappear when my hair is cut too short. So, she curled it up like mad! It will settle down a lot when I wash it as I don’t bother to use a hairdryer these days.
Afterwards, I walked across the road to Sainsbury’s, through the store into the café and joined the queue. Elder Son was working at the counter and didn’t see me until I was almost in front of him. It was lovely to watch him “in action” as he had no idea that I was observing him working. I was really impressed at his manner with customers and his speed and efficiency! When he served me, he offered to take my food to the table as I was feeling very wobbly and, when he had returned to his work station, some of the customers around me spoke of how polite and well-spoken he was. I am so proud of him!
It was actually his birthday yesterday – 30!!! I can’t believe that we have reached that number. Yesterday I spent much of the day reminiscing about his younger days and when he came home he spent some time with me chatting about his boyhood and how far he has come since then. Ahhhh!
Today’s outfit was a blend of blues with grey:
- Grey v-neck cashmere jumper – Marks and Spencer.
- Navy stretch cord trousers – Lands’ End.
- Navy suede ankle boots – Duo Boots.
- Navy, blue, black and white enamel with rose gold hinged bangle – Ianthe – Liberty of London.
- Wool and silk scarf, 100cm, in blue, grey and white – Sweet Dreams – Hermès. Tied very casually using a mother-of-pearl scarf ring by MaiTai.
I also wore my new grey leopard print coat by Masai Clothing and carried my lovely dark blue Africa Selene handbag by Massaccesi. This wardrobe planning lark certainly makes it easy to dress in a nice coordinating outfit!
Right, I am now very tired, but also pleased with the day so far, so I will settle down with tea and a treat. I do hope that you all have a lovely weekend.
Love and best wishes,
Belated happy birthday to your son. He sounds like a fine young man, and you have every right to be proud of him!
I’m still regretting not buying Sweet Dreams. It looks great on you. My local boutique only had one colorway, and the SAs can be a bit preoccupied ignoring customers even though I have purchased many scarves there in the past. I’m disappointed that I did not pursue Sweet Dreams.
Thank you for your lovely comment. Yes, Sweet Dreams is one of my favourite scarves. I really wish I could be well enough to visit an Hermès boutique. Maybe one day. Best wishes Anne x
Good day, Anne,
Lovely post and your hair looks beautiful and you look very well. Love those curls! Your ensemble and SOTM is really nice. Sweet Dreams is a very fun scarf and the cw you chose is stunning. I don’t own any men’s H scarves, but Awooo! does call to me. It does not call to my budget, however, and I’ve been adding to my H scarf collection in other ways, too.
Thank you – you are so kind, Anne x
