Seeing stars….in double!

Just a quick whizz through today’s outfits, of which there were a couple….plus one. This morning started off cloudy, hence the long sleeved blouse but, not to be deterred, I still wore shorts. It was observed that everything was a little black (that was my nod to D&G) so I added a splash of yellow – just to ensure that I looked like a bee.

Later on when the sun came out, we headed for the beach. These navy Jigsaw slip on trainers remind me so much of the deck shoes that my Grandma and Grandad used to wear when sailing. In fact the first thing that my sister said when she saw them was “You’re wearing majesters” which is what they were known as. It was a word that caused us much hilarity when we were children but google doesn’t seem to recognise it, so I don’t know where it came from.

There are some fantastic beach kiosks here and at some of them, they pack your lunch into these wooden trugs which you can take down to the beach. There’s no issue of a deposit or a reminder to return them, rather it’s all just done on trust, which is lovely.

And then later on, just for a change, I wore a skirt. It’s a long wrap style one, easy to wear in the sense that it is comfortable but as ever with a skirt there is always the top issue, which can be troublesome. It really needed something not too long, and fairly fitted, so as to work with the proportions. I created the shape that I was after by tying the extra fabric from this vest in a knot at the base at the back.

I decided to go with the full on “double stars” look just because I fancied it and when you have a limited wardrobe, you have to play around with things a little more.

It’s our last day tomorrow, after which we will return home and I will battle my way through piles of washing. I may come up for air each evening to write a blog post (about what I’m not sure) before disappearing again. You know the feeling!
