Outfit: What I WAS Wearing







See those tights? Aren’t they fabulous? I thought so too, until I noticed that they had a hole in and were laddered, despite being brand new! Fortunately I noticed this before I left the house and had time to do a quick change into a plain purple pair. So we’ll just have to pretend that this is what I’m wearing right now.

As the tights were so loud, I kept the rest of the outfit simple, just adding flashed of purple here and there to bring out the purple stripe in the tarten. At least that made it easy to switch to an alternative pair of tights. And if you look at the centre photo in the collage, you can see the ladder down my right leg.

I included a shot of my fabulous short sleeve coat today as I have been wearing it on and off the past week or so. It’s getting pretty chilly on a morning now.

Tonight we are eating out at a local pub with the young man’s parents – I think it’s a belated birthday celebration for his dad.

    @Old Gardener: I've sent the tights back for a replacement pair as they were damaged before I opened them.
