WIW: Greg's FAVE for 2022

Here are two very similar looks, yet they are a little different.

The dark neutrals are navy! I don't wear black.

I LOVE wearing these types of proportions. Shorter knitwear with higher rises in roomy silhouettes. 

Look #1:  

With a more fitted and slightly shorter striped zippered sweater with high neckline. Greg voted the outfit with the big barrel jeans and this sweater his favourite of the year! He loves rugby stripes too. I've worn it three times in his honour, including out for dinner for our 26th wedding anniversary :)

Look #2:

The same outfit but with a boxy short striped sweater with matching scarf and beanie. I got the three piece set for Christmas from the family. And yes, I wear them together. Why not! 

The cream jeans are warm and Winter weight. The maxi navy coat is an absolute wardrobe essential and workhorse.

Hair wavy. Hair hat head. Hair has a mind of its own. I'm rolling with it....

Jo has taken over Sam's modeling career. 

Thanks for looking! xo

Pink or Navy? TORN: ETA: Keeping Both!

I love both! Hubs slightly prefers one to the other. But loves both too. 

Pink more fun.

Navy more elegant.

Will wear this dress to WFH, work with clients, run errands, walk doggies, or go out. No set way. It’s VERY COMFORTABLE and I can move, so all good.

Which? :)

ETA: Keeping both!

Here is the back story:

Winner, winner, chicken dinner :)

Even better than the last pair. Longer, wider, snugger fit on the hips and waist, cute pockets! LOVE the front 11.5 inch high rise. 

Style: Maeve: The Colette

Longer and wider on me than on the model.

Wearing them with burgundy and cream today. Sorry, just this fast pic! Busy day.

Hair Project: 1 Year in

For those who are interested.....

This was a SLOG of a grow-out when your hair is slow growing like mine!

I do not recommend growing out your hair from a super short pixie with no fringe, to shoulder length hair with long fringe - unless you are very motivated!! Which I was, and still am. I have four more inches to go! Then I will have reached my goal, and I'll be super satisfied. Still have odd layers and a fringe to grow out.

Completely natural colour! I'm a dark blonde, or honey blonde now. Have not dyed it in a year. It's much lighter when the sun shines on it (#3). If I lived in a sunny place, my hair would be naturally sun-kissed like it was when I lived in Cape Town.

I prefer my light blue specs with my darker hair! (#4 and #5)

My goal is to keep it soft, simple, natural, polished, and in excellent condition. Sometimes straight and sometimes wavy. I'm wearing fun pearl clips and barettes too! Pics at some point. 

This is blow dried straight. Not quite long enough to look fab behind one ear, but getting there.

LOVE the infrequent visits to the salon, the very short time in the salon chair, and the much cheaper service.

This is the last day of our end of year break and we are relaxing very casually at home. This is as casual as I go. I'm about to do some cooking and take the doggies for a walk. 

I'm on a mission to make quite big changes in my life - and this has been one change. A goal accomplished :)
