in the wild!  But this lion loves red.

So todays outfit was a toss up between a navy blue top and this one.  This was given to me by my sister, who does not have a blog (my other sisters can be found here Noleen and Lynn) more than a month ago.  The reason it took me so long to wear it is because I was having a little insecurity about the look of my arms.  Not quite sure how to explain it.
I also decided last night that I had not worn these pants in ages, so it was another item due for an airing.  I was going to wear my new ‘lust-have’ shoes but then when I tried them and these ones that I did wear together, these from Rage won.
Another feature in these photos is the viewing of my handbag.  I think I’ve only ever taken one photo previously that had a handbag in it.  The main reason for that is that I don’t change my handbag to suit my outfit … oh I know, it’s bad but my handbag is carried from the car up to the office and locked in a cupboard, then taken back down and I don’t usually take it with me when I do the afternoon shop.

Pants : Truworths
Top : Kelso Career at Edgars
Shoes : Rage
Handbag : Nine West (sorry Nols, I know you’ll be green when you see these photos – but I do still love you)
On another note, I’m not able to post comments on any blogs, neither from home nor the office.  I’m going to try our other pc here at home, but let me say, I’m really peeved about it.
Ally – you always manage to make me feel so good about myself!  You’re such a sweetheart, really and truly.
Heather – thanks for visiting and your sweet comments.
Linda-Maree – why can’t we both win?  But, I’m holding thumbs for you.
So, til the next time … Keep it Simple, Keep it Sassy.

    I love this look – and the quote — when in doubt wear red. You look great!

    You look fabulous and that bag is to die for.

    This is my “go to” colour when I am feeling down…and always does something for me.
