Patience Is A Virtue

I once again made it further out of the house than just the back garden today. Just to an appointment, but a whole 10 minutes worth or walking through town and 10 minutes back again. For this momentous occasion, I thought it might be best to put some make-up on and cover a bit more of my flesh so as not to scare too many of the Easter tourists.

I'll Sleep When I'm Dead vest, Topshop
Purple Vest, Stradivarius

Exciting? No. Comfy? Yes. I think I probably need to take in the Nightshirt/Vest as I currently can't really wear it any other way than tucked in to something. I think a slimmer line on it will look better untucked.

I'm also liking my hair like this, with the front parts pinned back and out of the way I'm not fighting the constant battle of having to tuck it behind me ear or it being pulled back too harshly. It's been years since I've worn it this way, but being as I have some cute little pins from Primark (see below) I thought I'd put them to some use.

Pearl/Diamonte, Primark (several years ago)
Flower, Primark (part of a set of 3 inc a heart and a bow, last year)
And I couldn't resist showing you these earings up close. I've had them a couple of years (I think) and they were a gift from my grandparents, who have excellent taste. They're a little on the heavy side, so if I wear them in the day, I tend not to wear them for evening and visa versa, but I love them as I think they're beautiful and can be worn with just about anything.

Gift from Grandparents

And I couldn't not show you my lunch from yesterday, mainly because I enjoyed it so much. It's just left over salad from the night before, with some cold meat (Duck and Ham) left over from another meal, some home-made (by my grandmother) Peach and Chilli Chutney, beetroot and lots of black pepper, but YUM!

Lastly, thanks all of you who've commented to say you like the new name here at Chloe Likes To Talk. I'm definitely feeling a bit more me, blogging under this title and a bit of a re-design is to follow, but for now, I'm just using a good ol' Blogger template until I can get it how I want it. All tips on creating a unique header would be warmly welcome (I have virtually no idea how to use html, the "Add CSS" bit of the Blogger design tab or anything technical really).

Really love your earrings, what a lovely gift from your grandparents! I need to buy some long dangly ones, ready for the Summer. The only time I really change out of my plain studs is during the Summer...
