A Little Bit Festive, A Whole Lot Comfort . . . What I Wore to Lounge in Style (or not!)
But it's New Year's Eve. While Pater and I will be happy to stay home eating a special meal while sipping bubbly and watching movies, a girl still wants a bit of sparkle. I resurrected this little skirt from the giveaway bag where it's been languishing, awaiting its possible banishment. Added a Bompard cashmere v-neck for warmth and cuddle factor, some merino blend tights for even more of the same, threw a purple cashmere scarf around my neck for heading outside to grab firewood, and finally, slipped on my new Fluevog (Malcolm) boots.
These last are not yet as practical as they might appear here, requiring the application of rubber soles -- I did a full-body plummet-and-sprawl the other day on the wet ceramic tiles outside our favourite yoga studio which had me lying still and checking for breaks. All's well and the yoga class restored my calm and confidence, but it was a good reminder that what we wear should be suited to what we do. And don't worry, as soon as I've given the boots another day or two of molding to my foot, the leather soles are getting topped with a more grippy layer.
Hence the practical sparkle here. I'm guessing, though, that there will be all kinds of glamour and shine and wonderfully impractical dress-up featured over at Patti's Visible Monday in honour of New Year's. I'm going to link up right now -- see you there!
And Happy New Year to you!
