The week has got off to a slow start for me after a very early flight back from Madeira on Sunday. Straight back from the sunshine to the longer nights. On the upside, the clocks changed in Madeira too so it meant an extra hour of sleep to soften the blow of getting up in the middle of the night. Yesterday was a bit of a wipeout as I caught up on sleep but I’m just about feeling human again!
Planning ahead, I took these photos the week before our trip. Anna set this month’s Style Not Age theme of “Jeans and Jewels” after being inspired by an Instagram post. I don’t wear jeans very often so I chose one of my vintage denim dresses. (You can see the other one here). Although the dress is embellished, I added a bib necklace over it for extra bling. I’m also wearing the latest addition to my collection of Yaa Yaa London rings. I bought this one during a flash sale recently. The deep blue stone is perfect for this all-blue outfit.
While I was in Funchal I visited my favourite shop there and bought a jacket that would have been perfect for this theme. As I bought it on the penultimate day of the holiday I didn’t have time to photograph it. I will have to save it for another day!

Hilda shopped her wardrobe like everyone else. The sumptuous jewel-coloured coat combined with jeans and jewels (left by her daughter when she moved out) looks fab, don’t you agree? You can find all the details at Over the Hilda.
