I went for the understated elegance look today - what do you think?

First up, I love the colour of the purple skirt but it is very heavy with a huge amount of linen mix fabric. But for this reason I feel massive wearing it. I did feel a bit bloated and yucky too that day, and it certainly did not help. The jacket is a vintage Canterbury sportswear jacket which I cut down and added some darts to the lower back to give it more shape. Forgive me for the bright yellow cricket wickets in the background - I was too tired to crop them out!

The weather forecast for the weekend is excellent, which means I will be working on moving a very very large pile of mulched material around my section where we are going to build a house. I plan to wear cut off jeans and an old tee shirt and gum boots!!
Hope you all have a great weekend! xx
