It is around about now that I feel like spoiling myself… I don’t know about you but I start to feel a little bored with my appearance… I think it is a mid season thing… I know that all the fabulous trends are kicking around on the fashion blogs and the online sites… and the more I look, the more I promise myself to really look… to spoil myself. I find I am a habitual dresser… if it works well I keep on with it… if it is easy to wear, I wear it over and over again… My life in the French countryside is very casual… jeans for most of the year with either a tee-shirt or a cashmere, depending on the weather. In the summer, a caftan, a couple of swimsuits and some light linens are all that are needed. London life is a bit different and as in most major cities there is the chance to dress up and play about with fashion a bit more.
I need some updating… a refresh in the wardrobe department… nothing too crazy… just a little pick-me-up.
Here are some tempting thoughts
I like these skinny chinos from J Brand (my favourite jeans of all)… I think they would look great with ballet flats and a tee-shirt or heels and a blazer for evening… and I could do with a new pair of blue denim jeans… I like the skinny style best… they seem to flatter the legs and work with just about any shoes.
Retro style swimming costumes are my favourite… if any swimsuit could be considered a ‘favourite’…. this Navy Memoire Swimsuit by Zimmerman could work… elegant and with the right amount of cover… and such a fabulous back… and this one from Sea Folly… so Hollywood glamorous… In Europe, women of all ages, shapes and sizes seem to prefer a bikini but I still go for the ‘vintage’ style one piece every time.
