I always organise my wardrobe for tomorrow, tonight before I go to bed, when you get up at 4.30am, you need to be organised.
At the moment it is hard to know what the weather is going to be like the next day, one day it’s very sunny and quite warm, the next it’s blustery and cold, so it’s hard to decide on what to wear for a full day going straight from work out to dinner in the evening.
Gabriella Frattini black dress with zips on pocket and black leggings
Given the early morning departures to work, I don’t put my makeup on until I get into the office, I moisturize and put my Nude by Nature air brush primer on and when I get into the office I put my makeup on, I wear a scarf and slippers and have my blankie on for the long haul (nearly an hour on a good day) and hope that we don’t get stopped by anyone. So the outfit that I select has to work through the cold morning in the car, walking the little girl around the park in the wind and or rain and then also be smart enough to meet with clients during the day, and some evenings take me through dinner out before going home to bed.
Generally if I wear leggings and a tunic, I will put on a a thermal skivvy, scarf, and a jacket, but then as the day wears on, the jacket and scarf comes off until the sun goes, down and then I have the jacket and scarf to put back on for the cool trip home. For winter, I love to wear boots, long, calf length and ankle, depending on the outfit, they keep my feet warm and are quite smart looking, however, when I am in the car, I take them off and put my slippers on as I find it too uncomfortable to sit with the heels on, even if they are relatively flat.
I have started a program for 30 days of style, you have to add something different for each day, today’s style item is wear a statement necklace, well today, I felt that my statement was pearls, so along with my string of pearls, and drop pearl earrings, I wore a magnetic bracelet with pearls.
Tomorrows challenge is to wear something that has been in my wardrobe for years, well the Gabriella Frattini tunic shown in the above picture has been in my wardrobe for at least 3 or 4 years, I didn’t wear it last year so this is the item I have chosen for this challenge,
