Has it ever happen to you to put together a modest outfit and then realize how other people consider it very feminine?

What I wore today reminded me of how responsible and capable I am and eased my worries.How can a skirt and a shirt do that? Well I 'm not quite sure, but considering that all things are interconnected ...
Now back to the outfit, I kept it simple and added a few accessories playing up with silver and pearls.
Well thought simplicity ,that's elegance for me.

I recently got this skirt (notice got not bought) and it's a favourite colour of mine. However, I almost never wore pink and it's certainly not appropriate for a woman a little over 40. But look at the outfit I got together this morning.Red fits so good with pink and the elements of black ground the outfit. Brown shoes and vintage bag were picked so that the overall effect is not matchy matchy.
I'm also very happy that I use creatively all my clothes because overspending is never a happy ending story .

|Today is the last day of summer. No matter how much I like for the weather to cool down a bit , I still love summer the most of all seasons. hence the blue in my outfit today. I went window sopping today after a period of 3 months and I was badly surprised at how much cheap the quality of the clothes has become.|

It's the beginning of a busy week with full time work at school,plus after school activities for the kids and later in the evening all the housework and cooking that needs to be done.
Husband works long hours and comes back late and tired. What helps me survive? I try to have things as organized as possible , I don't procrastinate and I take one day at the time.
As for dressing, it surely helps to look good and it's a creative outlet. On Sunday I did a long list of outfits to wear the coming days.
After all I have promised to wear what I have and not buy new often and pay very little when I do.
I love the necklace.
By the way how do you manage the everyday mad house?

I seem to explore all the possibilities around my 2 new skirts lately.It's still very hot in Greece in September and there is no sign of it to cool down.I'm a bit tired of summer outfits and I long for cardis and scarves. (oops nice title for a blog).

Money-wise now ,I pile up my bangles and my necklaces to get new combination out of them, so I don't need to buy new stuff.

Instead, I relied on remixing ,on exploring my mum's wardrobe, on checking local markets plus making my own clothes.Try this at home, it works.
