There’s a lot of clothes and outfits in my wardrobe going unworn. I bought the most wonderful edgy skirt just before all the shops shut and can’t quite bring myself to wear it as it’s not, in any way, an indoor stay-at-home skirt. However, I’ll dig it out and take a pic for my next post. In the same charity shop I also bought another winter coat. I’d been looking for a long, flowing coat and pounced whenI saw it. Here it is.
This is very much my look for my 15-minute walk outside for the duration of the lockdown: boots, jeans, woolly jumper (it was cold last week), scarf and hat. Btw, I’ve stopped going into the little shops that are nearby and we are strictly reliant on supermarket deliveries, which I seem to be on top of, kind of got how it works. The 15-minute walk outside is very much about getting some fresh air, whilst avoiding everyone in the vicinity. People in our area are really civilised and keeping to the 2-metres apart, even walking in the road to avoid each other. Also note, no makeup and no contacts. People say they like the glasses and how I look in them, but when you see me in my contact lenses with the usual heavy eye makeup, you’ll know I am feeling 100% well.
I bought the hat in one of the local shops before Christmas. Not sure about it, tbh, it’s kind of classic but a bit grannyish.
What about this hat?
That’s quite an expensive designer hat, no less, bought from Joanna Zara Millinery and rather retro, don’t you think.
The scarf I bought recently from Warehouse’s constant online sales – it’s thick and woolly and was really needed last week. I also love the colour.
And here’s what I wear indoors, most days.
Blue jeans, soft indoor shoes and a variety of tops. Gosh, I do long to wear something more funky. So having said that, for the next post, I shall dig out all my edgy skirts and tops and give you a walkthrough of what I intend to wear once we return to normality.
And re: no makeup. I moisturise as per usual, put on a foundation and then, always, always, I colour in my eyebrows. Take another look at the pix, eyebrows are the framework for your face and it is essential, I think, to make them stand out 🙂
That’s all for now, I do hope you are all keeping safe, staying mostly inside and keeping well.
