Today I decided to wear a shirt I asked opinions on back in December around whether or not to keep or toss and thought I should wear it, since I decided to keep it …
I think I look rather severe, but am not going to harp on about how dissatisfied I am with my pictures – although these I took before work for a change as I left a little later this morning as I needed to stop and pay school fees for the boys and their office only opens at 07:30.

 I used the curling iron on my hair and as can be seen, its not quite the look for me … lol … but at least I tried 😉
The details … shirt is from Pick ‘n Pay (kinda like WalMart here), trousers and blazer – Truworths, shoes Edgars, Necklace – Woolworths, belt – Meltz … the suns was so bright the belt is barely visible.
This evening I had dinner with my sisters and we were laughing ourselves silly.  Some of our dinners are rather strained and then others, we share and laugh and just have a jolly ol’ time … everyone is dealing with their own things and it’s just great that we get to connect once a month.  We’ve been doing these dinners for two years now and I think we only skipped one month – it’s our once a month chance to get together without spouses/partners and children.
One of my sisters is in a divorce, one is dealing with the imminent emmigration of her child, one is having issues and challenges with her child … I’m dealing with a whole bunch of stuff, but we share a little, laugh a little and for just two hours, we get to connect and it’s good, because we did not do this before and before before, I lived abroad … and now we’re older and wiser and calmer and less self-centered and it’s just great.
Life sure is short and things change so quickly … on that note … connect, make the call, make the time, go pay the visit … you can spare an hour or two once a month!
Stay smiling and stylish

    I love how much polish the blazer adds to the look, it works so well!
