Overcoming a fear of heights. what to wear to casual. what to wear to casual dinner over 40
Exhilarating day today… I pushed through my fear of heights (almost giving up at the first step) and dangled precariously from a selection of poles and ropes 400 feet up (well, over 40 anyway…much like myself!).
My trusty New Balance gutties (trainers or runners, to the non-Scottish) maintaining a firm grip. Skinny Topshop Jeans and a stripy tee. No accessories allowed. It is impossible to look stylish in a harness and helmet.
After this incredible adrenaline rush we went out for a family dinner to celebrate everyone’s’ achievements.
This was a ‘throw-on’ outfit (ready in 15 minutes) for a very casual dinner at Cafe Rouge.
My beautiful vintage Topshop Jacket made this outfit leap from plain to pretty. I love the detail of the fabric. It is like rough silk.
These GAP jeans are fantastic, super soft and a great skinny fit. I have just recently discovered GAP after being a Topshop jean devotee for a long time.
The lace T-shirt was a charity shop find.
A comfortable outfit for a warm summer evening…. and a walk to dinner.
Do you have any trusted old-faithfuls that can elevate an otherwise plain outfit into something that makes you feel special and just a little more ‘dressed’?
