Just call me jazzy

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!

Transitional dressing

I really don't profess to be a style expert. The blog features my take on fashion with little regard for age appropriateness as I wear what makes me feel joyful and I hope that this may be an inspiration to you. Transitional dressing isn't something that I feel particularly clever at - I much prefer the clear cut demarcation between summer and winter. This rather grey area for me is perfectly reflected in today's outfit which coincidentally showcases many shades of grey. The breezy start to the day informed my choice of top with a high neck to keep the chills out, but the fact that the sun was shining meant that the gallery would probably heat up to boiling point by the afternoon. With this in mind, I chose these lightweight silk palazzo pants which are cool and easy to wear. The fabric mules are in a wide fit and minimal heel - just because you want to be stylish doesn't mean you can't be comfortable!

This weekend finds me rotating my summer and winter wardrobes (see? no spring/autumn clothes mentioned there) as I try to second-guess the weather. The process is little short of bedlam this year, but more of that another day. A friend was delighted to hear that I'm putting my summer clothes away as she said that pretty much guarantees an instant upturn in the weather. On the strength of that, I may keep a few lighter pieces to the side ready for the Indian summer. Oh, such are the joys of transitional dressing!
