Just call me jazzy

Friday, October 05, 2018


Hi folks, just call me jazzy!


I decided to jazz up what was a fickle Friday by adding all the bells and whistles or maybe that ought to be stripes and fringes. Almost everything in this outfit will be familiar to you, I'm sure. Boots from H&M, palazzo pants by Boohoo, jacket is preloved (no label) and sunglasses by Quay Australia. The top is preloved and cost under £3. The necklace is old, maybe from M&S...


The rings too are second hand, and seen previously.


It's been a funny couple of days weather wise here as the warm temperatures have done nothing but produce fog and more fog. The tide and fog have both drifted in and out, although not in harmony, creating travel havoc with those who were trying to fly in and out of the islands. The Scillonian has been bulging to the gunnel's with passengers eager to move one way or the other and was even supplemented by smaller boats being hired to get folks home in time for commitments. 


Somewhere out there is a jet boat coming in to the quay to collect passengers travelling to the mainland some two hours away. Thank goodness that's not me as I dislike being out on a boat in the fog. I know that they're equipped with all the right technology like Sat Nav and radios but honestly it spooks me. I'll just say a quick Hi to my dear friend Angela who left today on the ferry after two weeks on the island - I hope your journey back to Cornwall was uneventful!


My hectic social whirl has passed, friends have been and gone, were wined and dined and life may settle back into something resembling a routine hopefully with the blog becoming less erratic too. We managed to fit in a boat trip to the Eastern Isles for a picnic which I will be sharing with you soon - the weather wasn't warm, but at least it was good enough to make the trip possible and we all had a super day out.



As I shimmy off towards the weekend I'll wish you all a lovely time - family time, party time, shopping time, DIY time or just time to chill - have a super weekend and I'll be back soon!

  1. What an absolutely delightful outfit, Anna! And I love those carefree, joyful photos, too. The fog creates quite an eerie backdrop. I once walked along the Cornish coast in the fog, with only the lighthouse warning signals for company. We couldn't even see the lighthouse! Your palazzo trousers remind me of the jumpsuit I'm wearing in my current post. Love those stripes! xxx

    1. Fog is a bit eerie isn't it. I always feel safer on land than at sea during foggy weather! I'll have to take a look at that post of yours - palazzo and jumpsuit all in one sounds great.

      Have a super week!

  2. Here is a look that exudes joyousness. Those stripey pants are going to be fun to style in so many ways and seem quite seasonless as well.

  3. I love outfits that combine familiar elements - it is nice to not always see new stuff. This is a fabulous look, Anna! You know I am in lurve with that jacket. The fringe! Be still, my heart!

    I love when we get fog...unless I'm traveling! Happy weekend to you, my dear!

    1. It's good to mix old with new and have that challenge to still keep things interesting. The jacket somehow got lost amongst the sea of jackets hanging up in my closet, but I'm delighted to have given it another showcase this way.

      Have a lovely week!

    1. Hi Jill, thanks for your lovely feedback. I too, was encouraged by my daughter to start my blog and I just haven't looked back. I popped across and left you a comment on those red boots - well, of course I would! Well done sweetie, you're doing great.

  6. Hi Anna! Im glad to see you! It has been awhile. Love this eclectic mix on you "Jazzy"! How could you not smile when wearing the colorful pants. I love those booties too! I bought a pair of red velvet booties late last year- the sock bootie, though, I love the shape. This is lots of fun!
    Hope you are doing well.
    Have a great week!

    1. Hello sweetie, yes long time no see. Red boots signal great fun, don't you agree? Your red velvet ones will probably be making another appearance soon now that the temperature is dropping - I hope to see them sometime.

      Wishing you a super week!

  8. Love your way out style Anna - if only I could wear it. I've just taken charge of some similar red sparkly boots - can't wait to wear them, but it's still way to warm most days. Jacqui Mummabstylish
