On Saturday I had my first ever pedicure. Yes. I can't believe I've not done it before either. I did ask the technician if she had more older people coming in for pedis (I for one am finding it less easy to access my toes these days) but she thought not. There goes that theory. Am I alone in inflexibility? Moving on quickly, then.
I wore my gold birkenstocks, after a visit to the attic, and rolled up skinny cropped jeans. I so enjoyed showing my ankles for a change.
May I take an opportunity to talk of the jeans. These can be rolled up (as I have done) or left down. They are super comfy. Very lycra. It takes a bit of getting used to the high waist again. However I have worn them a fair bit since buying them a few weeks ago.
Feet my own
Her face looking up from my feet was a picture! Shame I couldn't take it for you.
The following day we had family over for a BBQ. Being a pleasant mid 20c it was another opportunity to bare my legs. I wore a denim dress. Can you believe that I did not wear this last summer or spring at all. I am not sure if I wore it during the year even once.
I took a thin leopard print belt from a pair of M&S chinos to pop around the waist. The sandals are Clarks.
Sorry, the light is not brilliant, well actually its too brilliant, haha.
I discovered Sally Hansen Airbrush legs spray on for immediate tan affect. In using this I did have a flippin' heck moment first as I sprayed it on my legs, and the garden steps, quite energetically. I'm not sure who was more horrified, my husband at the tanned stone work or me knowing that I had visitors soon and the legs were looking like I had smothered them in chocolate mousse. I quickly bathed then tried again. This time using kitchen paper to apply rather than directly on the legs. This resulted in an affect that I liked and, yes, will use again. In fact my oldest daughter was going out that evening and borrowed it successfully, following my instructions.
