231 days to go: Capsule Wardrobe Challenge, day 1

Before I begin let me announce one final amendment. I have changed my blue navy jacket to a long black coat.
And the belts has gone in favour of a thick brown scarf.
It was 7 below zero when I got in the car today with forecasts of much the same so I have decided to go for as much coverage as possible.
I call this my Scottish Widows Coat after the woman in the advert wore a similar coat.
I bought this in the December sales in 1995. It was half price and cost £140.00 - most definitely an investment piece.
Back to today. I spent all morning writing reports, planning workshops and typing up work before I went to the gym and then collected the children.

Stop Press! Goober and Kristen (Shallow Coffee) have joined us!
See their blogs on my blog list.

I wore...

Red Shoes - eBay
Black Tights - Tesco
Skirt - Matalan
Red Top - Primark
Black Vest - Oasis
Scarf, worn as a bow - Marks and Spencer
Coat - Four Seasons
Bag - Sainsbury's

At some point the influence of the waves (even storm waves) on the material comprising the beach stops, and if the particles are small enough (sand size or smaller) , winds shape the feature. Where wind is the force distributing the grains inland, the deposit behind the beach becomes a dune.Free Vectorssan diego reverse mortgage
