It’s a new week, and the sun is shining here in the Algarve. We had some glorious weather over the weekend, although the evenings are still chilly. It’s still sweater weather though, (mostly!) and today I fancied wearing a bright one with my favourite khaki combats.
I adore orange with khaki—it’s such a striking colour combination. Sadly, I only have one orange sweater and it doesn’t look right with these trousers, so I opted for the next best thing: red. I happen to love this red sweater (hubby, on the other hand, doesn’t, but am I bothered? No, of course not lol). I bought it from Mango a couple of years ago. I think it’s the bell sleeves that appealed to me. It’s also nice and soft, so it’s really comfy!
The combats are from H&M and they still have very similar styles available. Last time I looked, they also had them in black. I’m very tempted to get another pair myself. They look fab with colourful trainers too (and heels, of course, but I don’t wear heels too often these days).
Isn’t the handbag absolutely gorgeous? It was another Christmas present from my lovely mother-in-law. Lately, she certainly seems to find all the best stuff, doesn’t she? Remember the other divine handbag she bought for me? They’re both leather and I believe she bought them from both from one of the shopping channels she adores! (She’s a bit obsessed lol)
I’ve had these boots for quite a few years now and although I love how they look, they’re not the most comfortable—in fact, they’re quite hard! I much prefer the feel of my black Timberlands but this pair looks better with my combats. I purchased them from Seaside about five years ago but they’ll never go out of style, not really. Not in my eyes anyway!
As for my gorgeous jewellery, again I have my mother-in-law to thank for it all. She bought the green peridot necklace for me during Christmas 2019, and the ring was a gift a couple of months ago. She’d bought it for herself but had never worn it because, she says, she doesn’t like green lol! She is a hoot, isn’t she?! She turned 80 last month. It was such a shame we couldn’t be there to celebrate the big day with her. Bloody Covid.
If you’re wondering why I missed posting last week, it’s because I spent the week decorating my brand new ‘cloffice’. It’s almost finished, there are just a few tweaks here and there. But I promise to share as soon as it’s all done. It is looking absolutely gorgeous though!!
