37, 36 and 35 days to go: Tough Clothes For Tough Times

Thanks for all your greetings and good wishes.
They really help.
Things have gone from bad to worse but I can't talk about them.
Please believe me - you presence helps.
I am going back to where it all began with the focus on clothes.
I will not give up.
On Saturday I dressed up in my polka dot dress and took my mum to a Reader's Day and one of the workshops was called "Strange Poems For Strange Times" with the fabulous Rebecca Goss.
The weekend requires comfort which is why I wore the leggings and easywear top.
Today needed even more tlc so I went for my very favourite Joe Brown dress.
Here's to a better week than last week.

Love how you belted your jean jacket! You've just inspired me :)

Hoping things will get better. (as you probably could tell, it's a sensitive topic for me)

Candycane said...

Love all three of these outfits and I too hope that you have a better week this week :D


Stacy said...

Oh friend! Even when times are trying, you look sharp. I'm thinking about you.

Kelly said...

Hello Jane!
I am keeping you and your situation in my prayers this week! (Romans 12:21, I just read today "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good".
Your outfits are cute, you must be excited to be winding down on your year-challenge!

Gosh. Well, I'm here, and I'm reading. I wish there was more I could do.

Oh, Jane. I wish we, your blog-land friends, could do more to support you. Know that I'm here thinking of you and appreciating the support you gave ME when I wrote about painful and sensitive issues a couple weeks ago. All good wishes coming right back at you. Love, Sallymandy

p.s. love your outfits. Now's really the time to wear what you love!

Best of luck for a better week. You look wonderful. Like Sher, I particularly like the belt on your denim jacket.

We are all thinking of you, and I am sending all my good thoughts your way.

I love the simplicity, yet how awesome you look in your dresses.The jacket with the belt is a winner.

Take care of you! peace..E

Oh Jane, I'm so sorry to hear about your poor daughter, I hope she's OK, and that you're also getting the support you need.

Love and hugs.

Sheila said...

You look gorgeous, Jane. Stay strong - if you can make the clothes work out, the rest is achievable. Good luck - thinking of you.

Hi there-wishing you well at such a difficult time my dear, sincerely hope things are better for you this week. I really love the red dress and denim jacket combo, looks great!

Jane said...

Thank you so much for all your kind wishes.
At such a difficult time where we as a family are wading through very new and scary waters I am so comforted by my blogging family.
I do feel blessed for that.

SHOEGAL said...

Love the grey dress/leggings combo. And the belt over the denim jacket is inspired.
Hope things work out for you & your family and you have a better week this week.

KT said...

Oh Jane, I'm sorry. What a bad slacker I have been. Fingers crossed for smooth sailing for your family!

lunarossa said...

Dear Jane, I agree with Kelly quote not to overcome by evil and do only good in return. Protect your own dera ones and soon everything will get better. Chin up! I too pray for you! Ciao. A.

You look confident and strong in that red dress and jean jacket. I know you can handle whatever comes along but that doesn't make it easy.

I'll be thinking of you and your family.

Totally love the belted denim jacket with dress. I was going to try it today, but temps are a little too warm. I still gave you a shout out for inspiration though.

Sending positive vibes your way!
