269 days to go: In The Pink

Thanks to all your get well messages - the healing force has arrived.
I am on the mend but had to miss my son's Presentation Evening last night.
Ah well, that's one of the positive benefits of having four children - there will be another similar event along in another few years.
During the evening my son was presented with his Year Book and I had a tear in my eye looking at the photographs - some were students who had gone to nursery with him and how they've changed!
Sam's teacher wrote "A man of many talents - he will go far!"
How true - but a talent for back-chat and fighting with his siblings (hmm!).
If he carries on he will go far; he will be packing his bags.
Only joking!
After my bruised picture yesterday I have gone for some pink therapy.
When I was a little girl (so my mother tells me) I was very pasty looking but whenever she dressed me in pink my skin would miraculously transform before her very eyes.
I am hoping for the same miracle today.
I started with the dress given to me by my friend Joy, added some opaque tights and a belt before piling on the pink with a scarf and cardigan.
If that wasn't enough I added my Boden coat and a pair of wellies to take the dog for a walk.
Hope you all have a great weekend.

Jane, look at the difference in your face when you wear just black, as in the first photo, and then when you add that great cool pink. MARVELOUS. I love that Boden coat! Is it old?

I can't say enough for pink around the blonde's face. It makes me feel like a million.

Have a good weekend!

All offer gratefully received Sheila.
Thanks Stacy.
Karen - I bought the coat in September 2007. I paid full price and then it went down to half price in the Winter Sale (Grr!)

You look great. That dress is wonderful with the square neckline.


Jenn said...

Pink does look nice on you. Do you remember that pink soft wool waistcoat tanktop thing I admired once? I think you should wear that again soon.

I love this outfit -- and I love the pink on you. But, you know what I love the most? The fact that you walked the dog looking so great! How many people would have put on some icky old sweats? You appeared warm and comfortable, but stylish to boot! You go girl!
