The deadline for the October issue of Aspire is rapidly approaching so I've been busy ensuring everything is up to date. One of our regular features is Local People and today I had the privilege of meeting a sprightly septuagenarian about whom I'm writing.
Because I went to her home, (as opposed to meeting someone in their workplace or place of business), I could afford to be more casually attired so opted to wear a pair of new jeans that I got when away in Liverpool last weekend.
The jeans were truly an emergency purchase, the button having popped off my beloved Fever skinny jeans that morning. (I know, I know. I go to a lot of cafes and eat a lot of cake). Adam very kindly went on a mercy mission to get a safety pin which worked just fine until we sat down for lunch, a Chinese buffet, when it popped open and stabbed me.
Ummmm. Cause and effect...?
I hadn't taken spare clothes, so went to Next because I've worn a pair of their cropped jeans regularly since getting them in the summer sale. I actually ended up buying two pairs. A replacement skinny pair and these mid-blue straight legs which are slightly distressed.
Much like myself when stabbed with said safety pin.
I wore my double layered navy top from independent Skipton shop Munchkins and a statement necklace to add a little colour. My ballerina shoes are several years old and are navy glitter. I love them and I definitely subscribe to the "sparkle is not just for evenings" school of thought.
The top has a dipped hem and a cute bow on the back,

I wore this navy top back in June with THE Boden Alice tasselled heels.
I wore this statement necklace with a broderie tunic and the Next cropped jeans I mentioned above when on holiday.
