I don’t know if you’ve noticed but there’s something a little different about me. You go to the beauticians to get your eyebrows done and come out looking completely different….
This is my sister in law, Yazury. Originally from Venezuela she has braved the UK winters for over 14 years now, knowing that at home it 30 degrees plus. How she does it I don’t quite know. Well I do really. It’s all in the name of love.
More than anything I would love to have Yazury’s skin colour. She always looks so healthy and can get away without wearing socks/tights as soon as the weather warms up slightly, whereas old blue legs here definitely needs the assistance of fake tan which is often a bit stinky, which gives me a runny nose and which brings me out in a rash. Never a good look.
On boxing day there she was, all body-con taupe and black lace short sleeved dress and there was I in about 500 layers. Theirs is the only house that’s too hot for me, which is saying something. It’s positively tropical in their house in Leeds – which somehow doesn’t sound quite right.
When Yazury came to see us the other day I asked her for a quick snap. I loved her combination of a quilted parka, French Connection breton top, printed Next trousers and Zara bag. It’s a good mix of the colours black, green and burgundy plus stripes, prints and quilting and it all just works so well together.
As well as speaking too many languages to mention, she is a jewellery designer and runs the blog Yazury’s Rocks which is definitely worth dropping by some time so if you have a moment some time, please feel free to do so.
