Some days a bit of sparkle is just what you need. This jumper has the cutest sequin Peter pan embroided collar and was definitely a nice welcome to a very stressful day. Sparkle makes everything better, don’t you think?
I recently added these wonderfully stripy tights to my ever growing tights collection and i just love them. They’re the wooly thick type and so comfy and cosy, i can’t wait to wear them again, they’re fun for the legs 😉
Add on top of that my trusty old red duffel and i was good to go! Another coat from the collection (Jeez i have a lot of “collections” haha, this is just code word really for shockingly excessive hoarder!).
And then the skirt that has already 3 remixes on the old bloggero… its definitely earned it’s ranking in to my hall of clothing favourites.
So in real life (as opposed to blogging life) right now we’re on a bit of a roller coaster ride. Our whole lives are about to turned upside down and its so nerve-wracking. It’s bizarre how stress can effect people isn’t it. I like to look for the little things to keep me going, like a nice outfit to get dressed into in the morning or a little shopping to ease the soul. Stripy tights, sequin collars and red lipstick are another coping mechanism i guess. these things put a small smile on my face even when the world is tough!
How do you cope with stress? Any tips for me?
So folks we are more than half way and that feels good. I am looking forward to seeing my Sister this weekend (Happy Birthday lovely sis) and have scones with clotted cream and jam…mmmmm. Simple pleasures, right?!
