The sun was shining, the birds were singing, I was over my stomach bug from Hell – all was well in the Barefaced Chic world. If my life were a Disney cartoon I’d have burst into song and been aided in my breakfast preparations by various woodland creatures. Which would probably have completely freaked me out and sent my hygiene obsession into free fall!
Now I’m sure Snow White wasn’t aware of bird flu, didn’t mind having a house full of animal hairs and wasn’t in the slightest bit perturbed by the thought of eating from plates cleaned by deer saliva. Personally I’m amazed that the poor girl wasn’t infected with lyme disease long before the poisoned apple touched her lips ……. but I digress.
Where was I? Ah yes, sunshine, birds, all’s well. Anyhoo the conditions of the day were perfect for a walk in the woods. So I threw on my long black coat and beaded scarf and went to seek some very much needed fresh air.
Coat – Today’s woman / Scarf – No label, sorry / / Gloves – bought in a tiny boutique in Whitstable / Air of mystery – I could tell you but I’d have to kill you 😎
I arrived home exhausted, but with a much clearer, oxygenated head and sat down to write this post. After uploading the images I realised three things:
1) I’m not sure I can pull off the ‘staring-nonchalantly-into-the-distance’ pose – the urge to giggle is too overwhelming and I have to force myself to keep a straight face. I then end up with a whole lot of pics of me looking constipated.
2) I have to get more huge ‘Audrey’ glasses because I’m loving them.
3) As much as I love my long black coat, there is a touch of ‘secret agent’ about it.
Listen very carefully, I shall say zis only once – have a brilliant day.
