Hi all

I have had a lot going on and haven’t had much time to participate in the forum or take photos. Feeling very tired and in need of a break. But I am on holiday now (yay!) and thought I’d share the outfit that I wore to the Xmas lunch that I have every year with my girlfriends.

The only new item is the skirt. Graphic black and white floral AND asymmetrical, it had my name on it. It has a subtle ruffle and small split at the front and makes a satisfying swish as I walk.

And I have gone blonder! I was after a more intense ombré/dip dye look so the blonde is concentrated at the ends. What do you think?

Pics 1 and 2: the outfit.

Pic 3: my girlfriends gave me this Michael Kors bag for Xmas at lunch. Good choice!

Pic 4: the hair.

Pic 5: I took this pic on the walk home from the restaurant because it was such a lovely day. And of course it’s been a while since I have shown my Aussie hat! As I have mentioned before, I have a large head so this is a man’s hat (size extra large!) It’s a bit rough and ready but I kind of like it. I did NOT wear it at the restaurant. I also wore the scarf on the walk home in case there was a southerly buster (cool change) or if I needed it for sun protection.

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and happy holidays
