Something simple

Sunday, and for my third post in three days, I thought I'd serve up something simple. Well, simple in my eyes, anyway. Yes, I may have a bit of pattern clashing going on, and a pop or two of bright yellow, but that's tame by my standards. Today's look is more classic than wow, more everyday than party, but sometimes we have to take a breather. This slight lull is giving me time to rally. For what, you may ask? Well more of that later...

I'm not a huge consumer of magazines, but I do like to pick one up as a treat most months. Red, Elle, Grazia, and the occasional Vogue are all great for both fashion and features. This month's front cover of Good Housekeeping caught my eye, thanks to the fab shot of Mary Portas. Mary is a woman after my own heart. A great business woman, with huge verve and energy for her cause, be it reviving the high streets or rejuvenating charity shops, Mary is above all things a true style icon. The biggest compliment I've had recently is to have been likened to Mary by client when we were discussing fashion for the older woman. I was enthusing about my latest shopping coup, explaining how you can find absolute gems in all sorts of unexpected places on the high street. I was bubbling with details of my favourite charity shops in Cornwall, giving her hints and directions, hands flapping and gesticulating when she said "I know who you remind me of - Mary Portas!". I'm not usually very good at accepting compliments, as they often fly past me as if they must be aimed at someone else. This time however I managed to capture it and respond with a "thank-you".

So there we go. I've survived my three day, self-imposed, madness of daily posting. Yes, I know of bloggers who somehow manage to post almost every day of the week, but I'm not them. This weekend was the exception, but it has been fun, none the less. Wednesday will bring a very unique post to the blog, something that by its very nature can only be a one off. Expect a whole lot of imagery. I'd love to tell you more, but don't want to spoil the surprise.
