Another beautiful spring day today. Doesn’t the sunshine make a difference to the spirits? Poppy and I had a walk into town to go to the bank, (which was closed) and to pick up a prescription. On a day like this, Skipton would normally be bustling with locals and tourists alike. It was so quiet. Not quite deserted, but almost.
My outfit today reminds me of when I first starting writing this blog, almost 7 years ago. I had several breton tops and wore them often. At that time, I had the school run to do. A breton with jeans, ballerinas and a scarf was my day-to-day uniform. It’s a look I’ll never tired of but it became ubiquitous. It seemed like every forty something woman was wearing it, so I gave it a rest. A breton is a classic wardrobe piece though, especially in the traditional navy and ivory colourway. It will always look effortlessly good. I bought a new one to replace my faded favourites along with these jeans before we went into lockdown. Part of me wanted to wait and save them when things return to normal, but I fancied wearing them today, so here they are.
The jeans are a straight ankle-length, high-waisted style. and I really like them. The high-waist is very flattering and it makes it easier than lower-rise styles do to tuck a top into.
The canal is lovely in the sun. Large mills stand alongside it, as one would expect, so I’m standing in their shadow. Poppy and I didn’t want to take more than a couple of minutes taking photos, and spend longer than necessary there, so we decided these would do nicely.
