It seems I've acquired quite a collection over the years. I have put loads in the charity bag and these are some of the keepers:
I go for either small silver pendants or big statement necklaces, like the ones in the pic. I like the look of long necklaces and lariats but they get in the way and irritate me. The ones in the photo above are mostly from good old M&S. The particularly glitzy one at the very bottom is from Butler & Wilson. I bought this necklace years ago and have always saved it for evenings out but just lately I've been wearing it with ordinary t-shirts and jeans for the day. It looks quite cool - I think because it isn't quite as sparkly as it was.
I have another with pearls and spangles which I wore yesterday with a breton top.
(Oh. That's not a very good picture, sorry, it's a bit blurry. We had been out for the day
and I had enjoyed one or two glasses of wine.)
This necklace is from Jigsaw. Pretty, no? I wore the top with my indigo denim leggings (no, not jeggings, that's a silly word) and ballerina pumps. I thought the necklace pimped up my clothes a bit for a mooch around Cambridge and slightly boozy lunch with the other half.
We had three delicious courses in Cafe Rouge, wandered around the town and loitered by the river. We were planning to punt but the weather was iffy. Rain and river rage [husband's] could be disastrous. I bought a gorgeous cornflower blue silk top in Reiss and then we came home and ate rum and raisin ice cream cones watching a bit of telly. All loved up.
Back to normal this morning. Had a bit of a tidy up, showered and popped on my Bliss Softening Socks. These socks are pricey but they rule. They are gel-filled and you cover your feet with cream then pop on the socks for half an hour. My hideous trotters are soft and pretty (ish) after a session with these.
Husband typically chose to enter the bedroom at the precise moment I was wearing nothing but these and a big old pair of fluorescent pink pants.
'Babe, they clash' was his passing comment.
If ever you didn't want your new husband catching you unawares...
