Bob's your uncleThursday, December 01, 2016
On Sunday we popped out for lunch. I like to wear something nice instead of rolling out in a pair of tatty jeans which have already seen a few hours work and look a little grubby. Instead, I chose this aztec style patterned mini skirt. A little knitted skirt is so easy to wear in the colder months, just pop on a thick pair of tights and Bob's your uncle. I reach for boots, usually ankle, though I must remember to give my wider collection some attention this year.
Shirts and a tank are fast becoming a staple of my wardrobe which suits me just fine. The snug hug of a warm tank keeps my core more toasty than anything too roomy. Over summer I have accumulated a few new pieces; this shirt was an ebay one and the label says Dolce and Gabbana which I'm unsure if it's genuine. Nevertheless it's a fabulous cut and quality which is to be relished in it's own right. The downside to knitted tanks is they hate being laundered and always come out a little bit smaller regardless of how careful you are. Wearing a shirt untucked makes a change; I'm quite flexible on how I wear one although tucking it in and seeing it all bunched under a waistband is something to be avoided if at all possible!
I dropped in on my Nan later in the afternoon who said 'that's a lovely skirt, looks just like something A would wear'. A happens to be in her late seventies. Thanks Nan.
