I’m back after a week off but in an outfit I wore a few weeks ago… confused? I don’t even know what day it is these days!
This may well have to be the quickest write-up ever for an outfit post as I’m spending most of my working day running round after a dog that’s either 1. Totally hyperactive, 2. Zonked out on the sofa, or 3. Demanding All The Attention And Belly Rubs. When no.2 happens I write AS FAST I POSSIBLY CAN in order to squeeze in as much work as possible before our new greyhound Suki starts demanding food, jumping all over my bed or raiding any nook or cranny looking for soft toys.
Yes, we got our girl. The doggy we weren’t sure that we could adopt as we were away for over a week just after we’d met her was reserved for us under special circumstances (normally not more than 24 hours!), and we are head over heels in love with her.
So please excuse typos and other ramblings today, and for missing #iwillwearwhatilike last week, I just wanted to spend time bonding with our new addition!

SHOP THE LOOK:
I’ll feature her more in due course (we shall see what she does when the camera for an outfit shoot comes out), but in the meantime you can see her in my “Suki” stories highlights on my Instagram feed. She’s an absolute DOLL.
So! Before I went to the detox retreat two weeks ago, I wore this outfit… somewhere. I can’t even remember what we were doing or where we were going. If I had more time to think I could probably remember, but in my doggy-filled days my brain has gone to mush (I think I have dog brain, like baby brain).
Pyjama co-ords suit (few years old), worn with a silver mesh bandana necklace (similar) that I’ve had for a few years but NEVER worn(?!) and my old favourite silver Finery flatforms.
I’ve worn the top and bottoms of this suit LOADS (I’ll add photos/links of other times they’ve been worn ASAP).
Love the golden hour in these photos.
Hair was a fuzzy end-of-day mess (didn’t care).
I felt good because I could once again fit into these trousers – the pre-detox retreat fitness regime had paid off, and LOTS more of my clothes are fitting me again. I still have a “How I lost X lbs in X months” post planned for before Christmas. I feel fitter and healthier than ever.
And my morning walks? They’ve been replaced with an even-earlier-morning manic trot/jog trying to keep up with our girl Suki. Man, that girl can MOVE at 7:30 in the morning…!!

Thank you for joining the #iwillwearwhatilike link up! This started as a campaign on Instagram in August 2015 where women over 30 wore everything on a journalist’s list of “inappropriate” items for 30+ women (including leopard print, short dresses and oversized sunglasses. Yes, really). It was so popular that I decided to carry it on weekly where women of all ages link up their fabulous style, never mind what anyone tells them not to wear!
The link up goes live every Tuesday at around 3pm UK time and will stay open for a week. Whilst the original article was of course aimed at the 30+, you can be ANY age to link up. The only prerequisite is that you’re wearing whatever you damn well like!
