Wednesday 18th May:
Actitivities - Doctor's appointment, Chores, Pack for trip to Sydney in PM - mostly black basics so I don't have to think too much. It might be drab and boring, but it works. then The Problem contacted us.
I'm looking quite fatigued and careworn, - it's been a busy week, and I am getting a cold.
Wearing for the drive: Me Made Trousers - Stretch cotton sateen tailored pants:
We were late leaving after dealing with The Problem by phone for 1.5 hours, so instead of going out to a casual place around Circular Quay, we had to eat in at the Royal Automobile Club. This is a conservative and formal place where dress codes apply, so I quickly put on tights and a ponte skirt. I also combed my hair :). This is a refashion from a dress I never wore.
I'm a master of the two minute change, which is why I take interchangeable black basics!
Thursday 19th May:
Day in Sydney shopping - my husband needed new shoes, and I paid a visit to Lincraft and stocked up on black buttons.
The we had dinner booked at the Fish Cafe at the Rocks. This is a fairly casual place, and we walk there from the Club. It was cool, so I put on a little Me Made Scarf and a Me Made Polar Fleece Jacket. Pants are RTW:
Friday 20th May:
Drive back home, with a quick visit to The Remnant Warehouse first :)
I wore the same Me Made Pants for the drive back home. Plus my cardigan and necklaces. Different, as in clean, t-shirt of course.
Saturday 21st May:
Quiet day today, I am quite tired, because both of us caught a cold a few days ago. Just catching up with washing and grocery shopping and things like that.
It's still quite mild during the day, and I tend to peel layers off. Wearing my new Me Made Top over a t-shirt and RTW ponte pants:
Yes, the top is new - I will give you the details in a future blog post...And it did get peeled off late morning when it was warmer :).
Sewing - start sewing new top.
Sunday 22nd May:
Same again....it's usually a short day after a quiet start to the day. I did put on a clean t-shirt under the blue top though... A
Sewing: Finish new top.
Phew, another week done. As you can see, I revert to black basics when I have to pack quickly for a day or so away. But I am trying to make some more colourful tops as they do look more interesting and certainly the right colours flatter nicely. And, I do get a lot of things made, but by the frustrating route of little and often - I would rather nice solid blocks of time.
Downhill run now - more picture boards next week - I'll be away for a few days, so I think it will be more of my black basics...
Take care everyone,
