|Maybe a little too much golden hour in this pic.|
I’ve been really slack about planning my outfits the last month and although I stood in front of my wardrobe last night for a good 15 minutes, nothing came to mind … I looked at this, looked and that and considered the other, then closed the wardrobe for the night. Overall, considering the lack of preparation, I think this outfit came together fairly well. I love the fit of this skirt and that it’s wash and wear … it barely needs more than a good flick to look fabulous and at most, a light once over with a warm iron. The older I’m getting, the more averse I am to ironing, and at almost 45 finally getting to the point that not EVERYTHING must be ironed (although I do shudder when I see people wearing clothes that are obviously in need of ironing) .
I’ve almost finished my book Pefect Match, and am loving it. Interestingly, the older I’m getting, the slower I’m reading … I used to barrel through a book in two days and now, I seem to be taking it slower, savouring it more, enjoying it, like a good piece of chocolate you allow to melt on your tongue and then gently touch on your palate, making it last that little bit longer. I’m enthralled by the storyline and found that often, I read so quickly, I did not get to truly meet the characters and make a lasting connection. So it’s been a rather conscious decision this time to simply enjoy it and be part of the story for longer … I think I’ve stopped racing through everything, and it’s a feeling that is flowing into other parts of my life, and I’m enjoying it. Don’t know what or whom I was racing all those years!
Last night we saw the Oprah interview with Rob Lowe … oh my oh my oh my, he is delicious. Miss Bean kept saying, ‘Oh he’s hot’ … repeatedly. I must admit, when I was younger, he did not appeal to me much, I found him too pretty, but as he’s aged, he’s simply delicious. I think I’m going to read his book … loved the title, so original. I got the feeling that he’s a honest person, maybe I’m totally wrong, but he just came across as real, down to earth, humble and just plain honest. I like that.
I think I’ve rambled on enough already … be Fabulous and take a moment to smell them roses.
