So no painting today as the local interiors shop is not open on Mondays which stocks Farrow & Ball. Yes we still have little shops around here which closes on certain days and the fact that the Post Office closes on Tuesday afternoons is beyond belief! Do they not know how inconvenient this is in these modern times pffff! To be honest, I don't go to the Post Office that often but when I need to, it's invariably on a Tuesday afternoon.
So I thought I'd show you my big berry scarf instead.
And "real" bedhead hair.
I normally go for big scarves any way but the more gauzy variety. But for some reason, I seem to have fallen out of love with a lot of my scarves this year and I'm also a little jaded by the same old pattern offerings out there ...... so I have decided to go for something different (different for me) and that different should be big and woolly! I have my eye also on a lovely fluffsome yellow one in H&M which I think is from their Trend collection rather than the main (no links to it to show you) and I've seen a lovely tartan cashmere one on Ebay too. Och aye the noo! and believe it or not, that actually means "Oh yes, just now" which is exactly what I think about big scarves.
Gasp- I'm not in boyfriend jeans!
Jack Wills Sweatshirt (old)
Office Namesake Boots
New Look Grey Stripe Top (old)
Now that's what I call a fine check ... can you actually see it?
The vintage white Jack Wills sweatshirt is a favourite though I don't wear it too often because young boys and white don't go well hand in hand. I tend to hold the boys literally at arms length when wearing this (like a Maypole).
Feel almost naked without the big scarf to hide behind!
Yes it has a JW on the front but it's not too big and I even like the motif on the back because it's not too immediate as a JW offering.
That's relatively discreet for a JW sweat.
I like the way it harks back to "vinyl" - my era.
So nothing special today apart from my berry nice scarf. That's it - that's my scrubs for today. Now if that paint hadn't congealed and dried up and gone itty bitty (yes it did all that) ... my outfit for today might have been a whole different ball game.
So big scarves - yay or nay? Or we going for the slightly more practical ones which don't trail in the dishwasher when you bend over? Actually, I can see the argument for the more practical ones now. Good thing I still have a few which I like or Ebay will be swamped under this week with my offerings.
