There Will Be Blood
Today's unlikely inspiration comes from the bruising on my left arm courtesy of yesterday's blood test.
Needles don't bother me, the minor discomfort of a brief pain in my arm hardly registers but what I hate about a blood test is the bruising left behind.
The deep purple patterns on my arm are spoiling my fast fading tan.
Ah well - if life throws you lemons - learn how to make lemonade!
(And I have been making metaphoric lemonade a lot this year but I digress).
The array of plums, magenta and purples on my arm reminded me of this dress - the perfect autumn dress.
This morning it is grey and raining but the forecast is for warm sunshine later on.
This Ciel dress made out of heavy duty cotton with its short sleeves is perfect for days like this.
I was worried about how I would fare with my new hair and after a 30 minute run in the rain this morning there was nothing for it but to take the plunge and wash it.
Happily it took me just 10 minutes to dry and style it.
Dress - Ciel
Shoes - Clarks
