249 days to go:
I am grateful to Kasmira for her Masterclass on wearing scarves.
As the weather turns colder I like the warmth a scarf brings to my body and the bonus is that worn correctly (which I don't always manage) it can give a great boost to an outfit with both colour and texture.
This scarf was a gift from my sister in law a few Christmases ago and it isn't looking as good as it should as I threw it in the washing machine and it lost some of its lustre.
But I wore it on the day of my interview for the prison job and see it as my lucky scarf now.
I love this skirt. I bought it in TK Maxx in September 2004 for about £15.00 and when it comes to pounds per wear this skirt owes me nothing.
I have worn it during the day, for evenings out and in both summer and winter.
It is a lovely fine needlecord with a velvety sheen and comes with a length of tulle attached to make it look like a petticoat.
I feel both dressed and relaxed in this skirt. Great for work and for snuggling up on the sofa with my great new Susannah and Trinny book.
I am not a great fan of S&T but have to admit this book - "Who Do You Want To Be Today" - is genius.
But more on the book tomorrow.
Got to get back to work now.
