I used to love the Estee Lauder perfume White Linen.
It always smelt fresh and new and like a whole clean blank page.
Unusually for a writer I love blank pages.
I never get writer's block because I always have something I want to say.
I wonder what Black Linen would smell like?
After I took this picture the zip on my black linen skirt broke.
I was never sure about the skirt.
In a way I am glad I have got an excuse not to wear it.
I don't want to bother getting a new zip to fix it but I think I will give it to my friend Kiki who makes amazing bags out of recycled fabric.
Before I go I'd like to say a big thank you to Kayleigh of Fashionably Later for the two awards she has given me.
We have been blogging friends for almost two years.
We were both women over 40 trying to find out style when we began blogging.
Sadly in April last year Kayleigh was diagnosed with breast cancer and almost anything that could go wrong and become complicated, has.
On the plus side she has been supported by her husband and two children, her family and friends both close to home and in the blogsphere.
I salute Kayleigh for her strength and spirit and the fact that she never gave up blogging.
I always felt happier seeing a post and knowing she was on the (at times winding and very slow) road to recovery.
Today I wore:
Shoes - Clarks
Skirt and Vest - Gap
Jacket - Oli
Necklace - Dorothy Perkins
