Sometimes it’s a specs day

Sometimes it's a specs day. .
If you wear contact lenses it's good to give your eyes a rest some days. Especially if you get dry eyes as you get older.
.
I've worn contacts since the age of 12. Until recently no one ever saw me in specs. The contacts were straight in first thing in the morning and removed last thing at night. 
I felt 'less than' in my specs- not confident, not sexy - not me. Now I feel I can embrace wearing glasses and have all sorts of styles, shapes and colours. 
My specs have become an additional fashion accessory- to embrace wearing-  not an embarrassing encumbrance.

#tbthursdays 9 years ago when I was guest presenter for QVC TV shopping channel for @bobmackie fashion

I would show how clothes can flatter and sculpt your body shape to attract the eye to your best bits and detract from those you like least.
.
Dressing cleverly is all about creating an illusion whatever your body shape.
.
Everyone can dress to be the best versions of themselves with no need to use apps or filters on their social media posts.
.
No celebrity I have ever dressed in all my 30 years as a celebrity stylist has had a perfect body.  We are all unique and should embrace our own individuality. .

Feeling good

Feeling good... three days ago to Bank Holiday Monday beach walk.
.
Wearing my favourite pair of limited edition embroidered @zara jeans ( past season) 
Cashmere sweater @marksandspencer ( past season) .
Walking 20 minutes every day at a brisk pace helps keep a healthy heart and the circulation moving and the digestion working. Exercise, especially outdoors, also helps release that 'happy-feeling-good' hormone seratonin.
.
Try to have some 'me time' every day and do something that brings joy and happiness into your life. .

Wearing colour can fill you with joy and sometimes you may feel drawn to a particular colour

Wearing colour can fill you with joy and sometimes you may feel drawn to a particular colour.

Everything I'm wearing is from the High street- a mix of current and past seasons.
I like to mix up affordable High street fashion with the odd designer accessory.

Girls in pearls

Girls in pearls.
.
Saturday was a sad day as it was the memorial of a good friend who was such a special person.
.
The dress code was glam and colourful as the lunch party was to celebrate her life.
.
And so it was an orange and pearls day.
.
Everyone turned up wearing wonderfully bright and vibrant colours as she would have liked us to.
.
Life is so short and often so cruelly and abruptly ended, that we should make the most of every day that we are here.
.
.
Orange silk shirt from Zara 2017 season.
Versace-esque print pleated silk skirt from Zara Summer 2018 
Pearls from when I was 18 years old.
.
The collection of clothes in my eclectic wardrobe go back years and all get mixed and matched each season in brand new ways. .
