Weekly Wardrobe – USA road trip

Well I’m on the last road trip section of the holiday and catching up from home now. I hadn’t expected such difficult internet conditions so I’m afraid this is a few days late and now you’ll probably get several posts close together!  This weekly wardrobe is a bit jumbled as the first outfit pictures were previously unfound. It would have been lovely to get some pictures in the French Quarter at New Orleans, but we were just so busy while we there, we didn’t have time. So then we have a couple more outfits as we travelled towards Orlando….

This outfit got missed earlier on somehow, so these photos were taken back when we were in Washington in a small park area near the White House. The blush pink top is from New Look and bought the day before the holiday, so is probably still in the shops if you like it. I found it here online for just £4!
The skirt is also from New Look but is several years old now. The nearest I could find is this one:

Peachy orange are not usually my colours so this skirt only gets worn on holidays! I’m glad I found this vest top to go with it though as the outfit looks a lot better with them together. I like the interesting shape of the back, but I’m not convinced about the obvious bra straps – strapless bras are too uncomfortable for a day sight-seeing.

A little silhouetted against the beautiful sunset, I’m wearing a pale blue long tunic vest top from H&M. I bought it in April, and knowing how fast their turnarounds are, I doubt it’s still in the shops, but you could give it a go if you like it. The black bloomers are from a stall called Save The Pixies at Glastonbury Festival. After leaving New Orleans we ended up on this beach at Pensacola in Florida just after the sun had set, and the colours just got better and better.

We’d intended to take the day’s Weekly Wardrobe pictures earlier in the day, but it was just too hot to stand about, so in the evening we pretended to just need the loo at Manatee Springs somewhere in Florida so we didn’t have to pay the park entrance fee as they were still asking for the full price an hour before it closed! Anyway, we were given fifteen minutes to drive down to the car park and get back to the entrance again so we ran over to the water’s edge to quickly take these photos. If we’d known it was so beautiful there, we would’ve happily paid the fee and hung around for a bit longer. Oh well.
I didn’t realise I had so many clothes from New Look. This is another top from there – several years old now and on its last legs as it’s quite bobbly. I bought the denim shorts last year from Tescos.

The shoes in all of these pictures are Karrimor, bought from Sports Direct. Comfy walking sandals are the only thing for this type of holiday!

Weekly Wardrobe – USA road trip
July 20, 2016
Well I last left you in Washington DC (having taken a train from New York) looking round all the wonderful museums and galleries, which, by the way are absolutely free to visit. Since then we hired a car and journeyed to Nashville, Memphis and now we’ve made it all the way down to New Orleans where the hotel we’re currently in seems to having working wifi (as long as not too many people play Pokemon Go at the same time). So here’s my weekly wardrobe post (just a day late) though I haven’t got much time so there aren’t any links I’m afraid….
Joe Browns favourites from the new catalogue
October 16, 2016
The latest Joe Browns catalogue popped through my letterbox yesterday and I was excited to see their latest clothing for sale. By the way, this post isn’t sponsored or paid for by Joe Browns, I’m just a big fan of their clothes – they have quirky unusual styles that are very wearable and more than any other brand, my wardrobe is filled with items from this catalogue. If you like brightly coloured prints, then this is definitely the company for you, but if you’re more like me and prefer plain or subtle designs, then there is still plenty to choose from. Here are some of my favourites…..

Styling a simple blue dress – summer fashion.
August 4, 2017
As you can tell, these photos were taken on a warm day in spring, back when the bluebells were out in full force; but this is still an outfit I’m wearing four months later, so I thought I’d do some catching up as I haven’t written so many fashion blog posts recently. This was actually an impromptu photo-shoot as we were out hunting for bright yellow rape-seed oil flower fields. We always see them next to the road when we’re not looking for them, but when we were it took us hours! We saw the dappled light shining through the trees and thought we’d hop out the car and take some photos there just in case we never found what we were looking for….
Weekly Wardrobe – Dressing for out in the cold!
December 5, 2016
On Saturday I went to watch the Reindeer parade through Wells High Street, and it was just as cold as I thought it would be! The sun was shining though, so it was a really nice day for it and so many people turned out to watch. There was also carol singing and market stalls, and mistletoe for sale, and lovely Christmassy things like that – if you’d like to see it, please look at my Vlogmas Day 4 video on You Tube! Anyway, my outfit was based around the fact that I can’t seem to wear my red coat with my hat, without the hat sliding up to the top of my head and looking ridiculous. Does this happen to anyone else? So, as the icy wind meant that a hat was essential for me, I decided to wear my shawl instead…..
