Pleats and a tee with no style advice

It annoys me when people give out style advice, all the 'how to dress for your shape/age/environment' spiel. I say wear what you feel comfortable in, try whatever you fancy but do take a good look in a full length mirror before leaving the house just to be on the safe side.  My style is ever evolving with the seasons, trends and my mood. In the last year or two my trademark looks have become more defined yet equally you'll see me wear unexpected items that would never have made it into my repertoire before.

My nails are a rather cheerful pastel shade of which I have no idea anymore except it's most likely to be NYC.

Skirt and tee - charity shops, trainers – Topshop, hat – Joe Browns*, bag – blog giveaway win

For example, this pleated skirt (found for £1 in a local charity shop) was something I pounced upon with a grin of triumph, exclaiming “AHA! Perfect for spring, what a great colour!” which was met with a puzzled look from Chris and a comment about it being a fogey skirt. Not to be put off, I bought it anyway and patiently waited to wear it with this rather colourful tee (bought in the same charity shop for £1 on a separate occasion) which caught my eye with the bright zebra stripes.

Now, personally I think the graffiti print tee and pleated skirt together with the wedge trainers looks anything but old-womanly but everyone is entitled to their own opinion. There are more photographs to come soon from the beautiful walk we took through this buttercup meadow and beyond which I'm sure you will enjoy; looking through them now has brought a smile to my face.

Wishing you a simply marvellous weekend!
