Day fifteen. The sun’s out, the sky’s blue, it’s a perfect spring day. If only we could go and take a picnic somewhere. At least I got out though. I did another Morrison’s shop this morning. There’s still very little in the way of rice and pasta, but I did manage to get some plain flour which had been out of stock last week. This is so Ian can bake some bread, something I’m looking forward to.
Boris Johnson’s admission into intensive care is making headline news. I sincerely hope his pregnant partner is ok- she must be out of her mind with worry, as would any expectant parent, after she herself had symptoms of Covid-19. In the UK, as it stands currently, more than 50,000 have tested positive and more than 5000 have died from the virus. It’s truly terrifying, but it’s heartening to see so many people are making the best of this most unprecedented situation. I think the human race will change for the better after this- I hope we’ll more caring, more considerate and have a better sense of perspective.
Mellow florals and translucent eyewear
I shared this outfit in a blog post last September titled “Mellow Early Florals.” It could easily be renamed “Mellow Spring Florals.” The tunic is perfect for those days when it’s just about warm enough to wear short sleeves and it’s soft, comfortable and very easy to wear. A good stay-at-home-outfit. (These photographs were taken in my living room which as you can see is very plain. I’m waiting for some paint tester pots to arrive. I have some gorgeous wallpaper for the wall with the mirror on the photo below. I’m itching to make a start).
This beautifully feminine matte peach frame from STEPPER is exactly the right colour to bring out the mellow tones in the tunic. It’s made from super-lightweight material, TX5, so again, it’s very comfortable. Translucent eyewear, especially in soft nudes and neutrals, is an ongoing trend and one I predict will become a classic. It’s flattering, wearable and elegantly understated.
