Blue stripes and bell sleeves

August 30, 2017

I’ve never met a blue stripe I didn’t like! Add fine man-shirt style stripes to these dramatic bell sleeves and it’s a winner for me. Late summer, early fall is when I tend to bring out pretty shirts and blouses with a pair of beaten up jeans and some fun shoes.

Now that school’s started, I’m getting a bit of structure back into my day. I don’t mind getting up early, I’ve been trying to stick to a morning ritual (more on that soon!), and then really getting stuck into working on my novel, catching up on paperwork, and occasionally dressing up for you guys. It doesn’t always work out that way, but that’s what I’m aiming for!

My husband, Alan, is away in Atlanta working on the new Dynasty series for The CW. I also try to look good for him during our Facetime sessions. He works with stunning actresses every day, so I don’t need to look like a dragon during our chats!

I found this v-neck tunic at J.Crew, but I think I might have scored the last one. I’ve tracked down some similar options for you to try here, herehere. and here. I’m wearing my new top with some not-too-distressed raw-hemmed Vigoss skinnies from here, and I’m living in these Sam Edelman silver mules from here at the moment. They go with everything, and are a cheeky addition to all of the blues!
