How’s your week going so far? We heard tentative plans for the easing of lockdown restrictions yesterday, so there is something to look forward to. Only another six weeks until I can get my hair cut! I imagine hairdressers’ phones will be ringing off the hook! I’m certainly looking forward to lighter evenings and being able to meet friends in the park. This last week has been a tough one for various reasons…you know when everything just seems to go tits up? Yes, it’s been one of those weeks. The one good thing to come from it is I’ve now got a super fast refurbished laptop after mine finally died. It had had some hammer over the years! Having the time to use it is another issue however; work is still really busy and I’m basically running on caffeine.
Anyway, onto today’s outfit. In last week’s link up post I wore an orange pussy bow blouse from Hawes & Curtis, and mentioned that I’d since ordered three more in the sale. Well, they emailed me to say two of them had sold out but I could choose alternatives from the full price range if I wanted. In the end, I chose another one from the sale but this one was full price. I thought it was a very generous gesture and I’m really pleased with my order; when I find a brand I love I’ll repeat buy from them because you know what you’re getting.
The print mixing in this blouse instantly caught my eye – I love the navy and bright pink striped bow and cuffs in contrast with the main pattern. I’ve paired it with navy trousers for a classic look, although I’m thinking of other ways to style it – maybe with bright pink trousers or flared jeans and a navy jacket. For footwear I chose navy velvet sock boots, which to be honest, are not very comfortable. I’m in the process of adding more low block heel ankle boots to my already large collection. My feet just can’t cope with high heels, particularly thin ones. I was due to have a pre-surgery consultation about my bunions, but that’s another thing kicked into the long grass thanks to Covid.
We hastily shot these photos in my lunch break, just as Pete was finishing his early shift – that’s one advantage of working together, even if we do have to take separate cars. It was so windy – it’s almost always windy around MediaCityUK, but more so than usual today. I’m glad I remembered my hat or I’d have had a face full of hair! Time to book that hair cut!
