I could have entitled this post, I Am Beautiful but, even though I do believe I am beautiful on the inside, I don’t always feel I’m beautiful on the outside. So I entitled it Beautiful Monsters instead…because that is, apparently, what the tee-shirt is about. But don’t get me wrong, I do have beautiful days too! I knew the second I saw the tee that I had to have it, because I loved the quirkiness of the woman’s face. After looking at the label (from Stradivarius), I realised it was connected to Universal Studios Beautiful Monsters. Admittedly I had no idea what that was, but I love movies about monsters lol, so I snapped it up!
I’ve since googled it, and I still don’t really know what it’s referencing to, except perhaps to Universal’s general horror catalogue. In which case, I wonder if the woman is supposed to be Medusa? If you can enlighten me, please do!
Anyway, I wore my Beautiful Monsters tee to take my dad out for a Father’s Day lunch on Sunday (when it was Father’s Day here in Portugal). We had a very nice Indian meal near the beach, where it started off beautifully warm, but a sudden change in weather forced us to move indoors. But we had a lovely time, nonetheless.
As for my outfit, as I mentioned the Beautiful Monsters tee came from Stradivarius a few months ago, the wide-legged trousers are from Massimo Dutti (they’re the perfect shape for me, but sadly, they’re just a little tight around the hips now, I wish they were elasticated!). I’ve been wearing these white Puma trainers on the blog so much lately, haven’t I? But they go so well with so many of my clothes! Again, my Desigual handbag seemed the perfect bag for this look, as did the black necklace (inherited from my late MIL). The only thing that’s a little different is the long-sleeved red tee that I decided to wear beneath the Beautiful Monsters tee. It’s obviously a look that has been popular with youngsters for decades but it’s not one I’ve ever really worn until now. I must admit, I rather liked it!
So, that’s it. That’s my outfit for this week’s Neverending Style Link-Up. I’ve not been posting very much because I’ve been crazy busy this past month, working on a new venture. I’m not going to go into any detail today. Suffice to say, I am loving it to bits. But I’ll share more about that next week. For now though, I hope you’ll share what you’ve been up to for others to see. This is the 98th link-up! Can you believe it? I’m going to go to 100 and then I shall have to decide whether to continue with it. I’m so grateful to the few of you who do actually link up, but there are so few, I’m not sure it’s worth continuing with. Let me know your thoughts!
