Outfit: Teal with a Grey Bouclé Biker



LK Bennett Maddox coral

I’m not wearing anything specifically Tall today, which is a rarity for me given that about 40% of my closet is Long Tall Sally and probably another 35% is Topshop, New Look, Next or DP Tall. Today I am sporting H&M and Warehouse.


H&M are known (and rightly so) for their erratic sizing (case in point: I have items in S, M & L from there that all fit; today’s skirt is a 14 and is too big, a few weeks back I couldn’t get into a pair of their pants marked 14) but sometimes they produce some gems in the long sleeve department. This top has super long sleeves and a long body so is perfect for me. Skirts I find I can buy from pretty much anywhere as long as they aren’t stupidly short.


Warehouse I like because they give the height of their models on their website, at least one of whom is 5’10”. So if an item looks OK on her, I know it will be OK on me (she must have very short legs though as their jeans are all the right length on her but claim to only be a 31” inside leg). This jacket has longer than average-for-the –high-street sleeves.


Last night I went to my usual step class and then was very good and stayed for the aqua aerobics straight after it. The instructor is a bit bonkers and had us doing Gangnam Style in the pool. Later on I watched a documentary about Agnetha Faltskog (the blonde one from Abba). She has a new album out and looks amazing for her 63 years. The documentary charted her life from her rise to fame in Sweden aged 15, right through to the present day. I am a massive fan of Abba so there wasn’t much in it I didn’t already know, but it’s always nice to hear Abba songs and for so many years Agnetha didn’t give interviews that it was good to hear her version of events.
