After having my hair cut recently, this week I took some new photos to choose a suitable replacement for my profile pic. Also in this post, is my outfit for our final deed which took place this week too. We lived in that house for about fifteen years and it was a wonderful place to live and I hope the new owners will be as happy as we were. Now, we are excited to get stuck into our new build which will start early January. We can’t wait!
For now though, I took a couple of photos of my outfit for our final deed. They’re not the best pics, as I took them in my office but they’ll do. If you’re wondering why I have a sofa right up to the wardrobe doors, it’s because it’s on wheels so I can move it to wherever I want to. It’s really useful, but I’ll talk about that in another post soon.
For the final deed, I wanted to dress relatively smart in women’s clothing, ie. something feminine and pretty but still me (mainly because Michael had put a dressy shirt on lol) so I wore the wide-legged grey jeans from Massimo Dutti alongside my fine-knit pink cardigan from H&M (beneath which I had on a grey vest from Intimissimmi), and a pink and grey scarf (just in case the bank had air conditioning on). I also dug out my old grey Marta Ponti handbag, which I haven’t used for ages as I tend to favour bags with cross body straps at the moment. But it made a nice change. As far as shoes go, I opted for my pointed patent Ecco hi-top trainers (similar). And then I finished the look off with some pearl bracelets and earrings (all inherited).
As for my new profile pic, I struggled to find one that best showed my new haircut, because I didn’t want a photo that showed my face side-on. I took a few but chose the one where I’m holding up a sign saying, Live, Laugh & Love. It’s a bit different but I kinda like it because it shows my cheekiness lol.

Loving your businesslike look! I adore grey and pink together. The profile pic with the sign is so impishly you! How exciting your new build starts soon. Looking forward to the pics and progress xx
Thanks so much, Gail! I like your comment…’impishly me’!!
Suzy, this is a very smart outfit, indeed! I love that pale shade of pink on you. And I didn’t even realize your pants were denim. They are super cute! I absolutely love the profile picture you decided on and I am excited to learn more about your rolling couch! Have a wonderful weekend and may your new build go smoothly and quickly.
Thanks so much, Shelbee! I do love pale pink with grey, it’s such a fab combination.
And lol to the rolling couch (that’s such a fun description of it!)
Loving your haircut, made my appointment for a couple weeks from now. And that profile picture is on point.
You’re so kind, Mireille! Thank you!
This is a wonderful look on you and the new cut is fabulous. Congratulations on the sale of your home and moving forward.
Thank you so much, Rena! I can’t wait for the build to start!
An exciting new chapter! Best wishes!
Thank you so much! It’s exciting times!
Love the new profle pic and that scarf is so prety on you. Happy weekend!
You’re so kind, Shauna, thank you!
Your shorter hair looks so good on you Suzy! I am afraid of changing my hair, but have thought about bobs or lobs.. Very lovely outfit, I like the pink and grey here on you and congrats on when you move to your new house! that is exciting!
Suzy, you look tres chic in this outfit! I love grey and pink together, and you made it fabulous with those pants!!! And, then, let’s talk haircuts! You have gorgeous hair. It looks so freaking wonderful in this cut! Is it easier or more bother than when it was long? I often find shorter hair is so much more work! And, the build starts in January!!! Yay! I can’t wait to see it…hope you share lots of updates! (I’m still not getting notifications of new posts)
I love your new profile photo! Congrats on selling your house and embarking on the new build!
Thanks Emma! We can’t wait to get started!
That’s a beautiful photo. Although I have to say that the one of the song post is fantastic! I love grey and pink together, those trousers are so cool. Have a great day!
Thank you so much, Nancy!
