I had a most lovely day out last Saturday. The weather was spring like, Mr Him dressed in his best daffodil yellow linen shirt and I broke out my
favourite only khaki jacket for the first time this year. Hurrah. Like The Pouting Pensioner I adore my jacket. It has a bit of a tale.
A few years ago, before I met you, dear fashionsta, when I thought 50 meant 50 and frump had to set in I bought a khaki jacket from New Look. I almost immediately donated it to my daughters as, well, I had worn one of these day in, day out, when I was 20. That had to mean I couldn't wear it now. It hung in my daughters, both of them, wardrobes unworn. Then I met you.
You, dear fashionsta, who instagram and blog and are my age-ish and don't let a number get between yourself and a khaki jacket.
I raided the wardrobes. I found the jacket. I wore the jacket. I loved the jacket. It's now about 6 years old and half it's life has been adored by me.
So, last Sunday I dressed in flowers and pink, navy and metallic to accompany the jacket on it's first 2017 outing.
I discovered khaki or Olive with navy last summer, if you recollect. I am still loving the combination and these flowers added a spring vibe. The top is 3 years old. I didn't wear it all last summer. It's good to get it out and about this year. The jeans are in Marks and Spencers currently here . Shoes, I'll come on to that.
I took the jacket on a trip to see Gandalf's staff and have my first Aperol of the season.
There is more on my day out and the staff here on my Anna blog.
Before I leave you for this episode do you notice how I turned up my jeans and wore metallic SKetchers Go Walks? I point this out as this is how my male friend turned up, turned up jeans and Go Walks. Aren't we a matching pair!
Have you discovered these oh so comfortable trainer type shoe. I bought mine 3 years ago and this time of year are indispensable.
