A bit of Hush




Hello lovelies! It's great to be back, especially as I've got these fabulous new pink camo shorts to show you. I've had a bit of retail therapy recently and am happy to show you the results. As you may know, I'm a keen charity shopper, but in times of need I'll resort to a tad of online therapy instead. 




I don't often wear shorts, but saw these being worn by a client the other day and decided they were worth tracking down. They are a great length; not too short for a woman of a certain age nor too long to look as if I might be wearing hubby's shorts either. Best of all these have a touch of stretch making them uber comfy to wear. They come in five camo colourways, but the pink is such a pretty combination that it's my favourite. They are by Hush and can be found here.




My other new purchase is this super sweater from Corinne Carr Knitwear. We sell her hats, scarves and sweaters in the Gallery too. The woolen jumper called Opium is one of her best sellers and you can see why. Its neat fitting style keeps the drafts out with its high neck and of course it's super stylish. I love the marriage of lots of complimentary colours giving a very unique jumper.




I've missed a lot of sea swimming this summer due to the pressures of work, but I'm making up for lost time now with daily visits to the beach and this is going to be my uniform of the day. I love the combo of shorts and sweater for practical reasons and ease of wear. It's ideal for catching a bit of sun on my legs before summer leaves us and yet the sweater keeps me warm post-swim. These shots were from last night's swim on Appletree Bay and it was the first day that I felt that autumn may be on its way.






My sandals are by the brand Lazy Dogz. I bought these in May when I was in Penzance. Today's post seems to be all about that wonderful mixture of comfort and style and I must admit that the padded insole make these the most comfortable sandals of this style that I've ever owned. I love them and am planning on buying other colours next summer. I fancy having them in orange, but will wait until early next year before I do my search. More than ever, I'm practising mindful shopping now. Impulse buys and emotional shopping are a thing of the past for me as I continue to declutter my life, making way for investment shopping to last the later years of my life. Being in my 60's I'm increasingly aware that my working life and the income thereof is limited and so I need to make sure I'm buying exactly what I need rather than having the thrill of shopping for the hell of it.






Many thanks to my swimming buddy and photographer Fiona for these shots. We had a lively swim along the bay and back followed by a hot flask of tea and post-work catch up.




Many thanks for dropping by again and I hope you  have a lovely weekend ahead!
