june10-maxiwithbrowntopThis horrid cold of a few days ago did not last too long, but the air is still rather chilly at the moment.  Considering that its not icy, I decided to wear this maxi skirt.  You may remember this post where I ‘styled it for two seasons’.  Today, I’m wearing it styled very simply with a top I’ve had for years and my Nine West Boots.


This necklace I have worn more times than I can even begin to count.  My daughter Taryn did a beading class way back in 2007/8 and at the class she made this necklace which she then gave to me for my Birthday.  It has all the colours I feel best in and of course, I feel like I’m getting hugged by her the entire day because it was made with so much love.


The boots I acquired via my sister Norma, who had bought them on a trip to London then decided they were too high for her.

I have a lot of little jobs to accomplish still today:

  • namely get photo frames for the team picture I took of Liams Rugby side that we are giving to their two coaches,
  • get goodies for a gift basket purchased and wrapped (want to get it on its way tomorrow),
  • take 4 photos for my module which I want to get submitted this evening,
  • do some decluttering in my workspace and if time permits,move my scrapbooking cupboard,
  • submit dermatologist claim to medical aid,
  • and lots of other little bits ‘n pieces.

How do you manage what you need to do?  Are you able to work off of a mental note or are you a list maker?  I’m a list maker … I like to tick off what I’ve done and be able to see what I’m still wanting/needing to do.  I feel a sense of accomplishment when I look at a list and all the items are ticked off (that in itself is a bit of a challenge at times … lol).

Hope your day is simply smashing.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this outfit!!! Everything about it appeals to me.

    I am also a list person … I like the feeling when I get to tick something off the list.

      I am hesitant to say this, but so far its not been too bad but then I’m not subjected to leaving the house too early when it seems to be much colder. I feel for those who have to walk in the cold and I do remember how horrid that was some days! Thanks for the sweet comment 🙂 Hugs
