June This and That with some Outfits

Dear Fashionista,

This is a bit of mashup post.  I have been busy on the go since last Friday so thought I'd do a quick 'what I've been wearing' and 'what I've been doing post.'

On Friday Mr Him and I went out to dinner with friends.  We went to our favourite Sunday bar, you know the one of sunglasses on heads and sequin jumpers.  We hadn't eaten there before.  It was a little pricey but darn good quality and quantity.  I had to bring half of my meal home in a doggy bag.

I wore my new Sainsbury's Tu boho cold shoulder blouse that I mentioned here and my pleather jeggings from Next (this time looking more age appropriate.)  I added a denim jacket and strappy healed sandals,  



Love the detail in the blouse






The next day we visited the South of England show.  I wore  a blush M&S top and denim shorts.





The day called for sunglasses.  I like the detail in the top. I bought it in M&S 3 weeks ago in the Per Una section.  The shorts are years old from Primark.  Sandals Birkenstocks, which i find so comfortable in the summer.  These are 4 years old. I do deliberately show you what I am really wearing rather and include old items to demonstrate investment purchasing, which is my philosophy with this blog and my life. 






Blouse can be found here  Per Una blouse  

Talking of good old M&S I have just bought these gorgeous flat and comfortable yellow sandals here .

Also on the purchasing front I have been persuaded to try some summer long Johns, haha.  In reality these have been recommended by some American ladies who swear by them for avoiding thighs rubbing under skirts and dresses in the summer and they are made of cooling material of some sort.   I found mine on Amazon. I have not tried them yet.  They may be ideal for holiday. They are made by Jockey. 



I sampled some lovely gin recently. Silent Pool gin is available in Waitrose. It's made of 24 botanicals and they tried 30 recipes before settling on this mix.   I found my sample taster quite delicious served on its own and with Fever Tree tonic. The bottle is fabulous and has a glass stopper.  I have seen thjs bottle in pubs with candles in. I will be adding this to my shopping trolley next time I am in Waitrose.

  2. I like your philosophy of showing old with new. Real women's clothes. You look great in the shorts ensemble. Respect!

    1. Thank you Gail. It was only last year I wore shorts in public, other than before my thirties.
