Hope everyone is well and I know that everyone is looking AB Fab!
I survived my first week of Monday to Friday, and the 3.00 p.m. finish is wonderful. I am feeling challenged and excited about my job (my job share colleague finished up on Thursday) and it's really good to be back in a role where the buck stops with me.
On the fashion front its been fun having to dress for the office every day, and my outfits have been what you would expect... black layers and I am enjoying wearing my jackets. But today (Saturday shopping for new clothes for DS) I felt like a touch of colour so I got out a new cape I bought a few weeks ago. As you know it is Winter here, but our summer seemed to go on for ever and by the time I started looking at new purchases for Winter, a lot of Winter stock was already on sale... win!
I love the ombre effect we have seen in clothing but to date had not seen anything that I liked enough to buy (apart from Brooklyn's ombre black and white jacket *sigh*). This cape is a wool blend, the tones running through are navy, burgundy, soft pink, and grey and the trim around the edges is black. This was definitely an emotional purchase! I fell in love with the colours, taking me a little out of my comfort zone, but the shape and fit are very me.
Today my outfit was all about what I felt like wearing. Not as carefully curated as most of my outfits. I felt like wearing my striped tee and I felt like wearing the new cape.. so I wore them together. Master 13 didn't like the combo. He gently suggested I swap the stripes for a plain white top;) But I liked the combo so I wasn't swayed. Does it work to your collective eye?
I have also purchased two new dresses from Cotton On. A nice soft jersey and the style is so me I couldn't resist buying it in the grey as well as the black.
Thanks for looking. Off to catch up on the Forum.
