Well I'm back from my holiday in Mexico, which was lovely and relaxing.  We did nothing more than lie on the beach and around the pool, drink and eat, get multiple massages and spa treatments and RELAX.  As you can tell by this picture, I do not have much colour - that's because I do not get tan.  I have finally embraced my super-white skin and no longer try in vain to get a tan (always resulting in a burn anyways!!).

Back to reality...

I love today's outfit.  It's very tonal, but the bright "retro jade" shirt adds just the right amount of colour that I love.  In fact, I think without the colour, the outfit could read as old-fashioned.  I really hope it doesn't???

Ugh, the belly has GOT TO GO!!! 

Close up of the shirt against the jacket - see the shirt brings out the blue in the jacket?

  1. Great outfit, I love the retro jade colour on you. So envious of your Mexico trip!

    1. Thanks Louise - I also really love that colour! The trip was great timing - our winter here was getting very long :-)
