It's Tuesday and inspiration for work attire for the week expired on Monday. I'm now tapping fingers wondering. Actually in the office who really cares what I wear as long as it's smart, unless it's Friday and then all bets are off.
A Friday before I went on holiday I had a reckless moment. I wore a black moto pleather jacket. You may be wondering what a woman my age, mutton age, was doing with a moto jacket in the first place. I'll tell you. The summer of 2014 Susan at Fifty not Frumpy wrote a very good post on the pleather moto jacket for the mature woman and how, yes, we can wear it. The next day I saw a beautiful example in Sainsbury's so a moto jacket for £25 found its way into my trolley, nestled amongst the spinach.
It's been worn these past couple of years as casual wear to go out with family and friends
That Friday I decided to be a daredevil and wore it to work. I tried it with a skinny scarf as you can see.
Comments made by colleagues were 'oh you're looking really cool.' And 'you're very with it today. ' I declare the jacket office friendly and wore it again last Friday. This time I teamed it with a white T-shirt to show off my
fake tan whilst it's still holiday dark. Excuse the feet, I did put sandals on before I left the house.
Do you have a moto jacket? Did you consider and then dismiss as too young? What is your reckless item?
