Cool Cool Linen .....

Hellloooo

Today's blog is a little bit out of my comfort zone !!!!!

Other bloggers do fashion waaaay better than I could ever aspire to - but even I need a wee break from cushions from time to time - shock horror - call the cushion police !!!! :):)

I do genuinely see a connection between fashion and interior style mind you. It's not foolproof, but when I'm doing interior consultations with Clients, I always look at their fashion style - if their clothes are colourful and bohemian, the chances are they will like a little bit of shabby chic in the home .... or if they are dressed in classic neutrals, they'll probably prefer those tones for the home !!

Many moons ago when I had a "grown up job" and was much slimmer - ahem ....  I wore well cut suits and high heels ..... and seemed to spend a lot of time in the hairdressers trying to control my unruly mop !!! But then I moved into the creative field where people have a much more relaxed attitude to style - and well ....  it just felt like I'd found my niche in so many ways .....

I think I have earned the 'right of passage' to wear whatever I fancy - and the 'unruly mop' normally ends up in a messy up-do ...... the one thing I try to avoid are exposed Bingo Wings (upper arms) and Muffin Tops - not a pretty sight !!!

Anyways - here goes .....

I love 'rumpledy' linen  - it's soooo cool and comfy !! This white dress is a recent purchase which I'm already getting lots of wear out of ..... I added the the angora wrap over ballet top for a little bit of "layering" and for cooler evenings....

..... even I have picked up that "layering" is most important apparently ladies !!!

I kind of like wood and tan leather with this look and love how there is such a great choice of inexpensive jewellery these days ...

 

Anyone who knows me will be surprised at this little number .... it's a lot more colourful than I usually go for ....

I saw it in the sale and thought it would be ideal for "The Reef" - aka Tenerife ..... I didn't even bother trying it on. And do you know what, it is actually quite stylish and flattering !! Now I know the Bingo Wings will be exposed - but for some reason, they don't seem quite so bad in this. Perhaps it's the broad straps and square neck - no doubt Gok could enlighten me ....  anyways, I can see me getting loads of wear out of it in the hot hot weather over there.

Yet more bangles - this time, in silvers and turquoise ....

Last one up - another very cool rumpledy one ....

I kind of like how this one can be dressed up a little or down .... for a plainer look I thought it would work with no adornments at all and just a pair of white plimsolls perhaps ??? Must give that a twirl !!!

Well there you have it ladies - a little insight into my verrry laid back approach to fashion - as I so often say about interiors, find a style that is comfortable and that works for you ..... and well, just do your own thing I guess !!!

Normal cushion fluffing service will resume shortly !!

Over and out
