green as grass

Green Maxi Skirt; Glamorous UK*, Butterfly Top New Look

This is post-work outfit Thursday when the weather was unbearably humid and I wanted something cool I could laze about in having spent the morning stifling in my polyester uniform (dealing with fainting patients left right and centre!)
I really do love the bright green of this skirt, although I remain a little unsure which colours work best with it; I’m still guilty of sticking to my black/brown/grey/navy old colours of choice.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend, yesterday would have been my Nan’s Birthday and we marked the day by scattering her ashes at her favourite seaside town; Sidmouth in Devon. The sun shone despite the forecast (I like to think she had something to do with that) and the day, spent with my Grandad and Best Friend turned out just wonderfully. Thank you to everyone who sent their well wishes, what could have been a sad and maudlin day turned it to something quite beautiful.

Happy Birthday Nanny, YOU were the real gift.
