Twas the Tuesday after the very rainy Bank Holiday and all I really wanted to do was stay at home, be cosy on the sofa, watch films, drink tea and stuff my face with chocolate! Lindt Excellence Extra Creamy chocolate to be precise (well you never know who’s reading this and who might send me an articulated lorry full of the stuff!). But, alas, I had to go to work. I clearly wasn’t in a dressy-up, girly place and wanted an outfit that was smart yet comfy – emphasis on the comfy, and so this is what I pulled together.
I’d always reserved my Converse for the weekend and so, maybe, I was subconsciously channelling a weekend vibe into my working day. Unfortunately, I had the day from hell, it wasn't weekend like at all but the compliments made things a little sweeter, so thank you.
Looking at these pictures again, I think that if ever I was asked to present The Great British Bake Off (humour me please) then this is what I would wear.
I wasn't going to show you the next photo because of the very obvious bags under my eyes. But then I thought, why the hell not? Isn’t the whole point of blogging about ‘keeping it real’? Maybe not everyone’s view, but I think this picture proves that I don’t always look (or feel) tip-top and that I don't airbrush my pictures. But, I will sometimes use accessories to disguise the not so pretty bits – mwah ha ha *twiddles pretend tash*. I said pretend - don't go zooming in now!
Now, I wore this outfit when I popped to the shop the other day. It's true I don’t get out as much as I used to, but just to clarify, I didn't put the outfit on especially, it just happened to be what I was wearing when I realised we were low on the white stuff.
Anyway, whilst serving me, the male cashier looked up and said ‘Oh wow, look at that necklace, it is beautiful, simply beautiful. Stunning’. I thanked him and told him it was one of my favourites too. But it didn't stop there. He then shouted to his colleague who was at the back of the shop ‘Come here, come and see this. Look at this necklace, isn't it beautiful?’ His colleague, also male, agreed - perhaps not with the same vigour as his very enthusiastic shop mate, but never the less it was a lovely moment. It’s not every day one causes such a ripple buying semi-skimmed in the local Co-op I can tell you!
Thank you to my little man for taking the pictures - I'm giving the big man, Mr. B, a rest.
