I am totally like a rat up a drainpipe.
No sooner has the sun dodged behind a cloud, then I am on your screen trying out a cooler summer day outfit!
As I mentioned recently, I had a few outfits in mind for cooler days, then along came the glorious sun. And for the record in case He is listening, I am not complaining!
But at the first hint of a dull day, I am hooking out stuff from the Pout Walk-In (oh, in my dreams!) to experiment with a cooler day look. Quickly, before the sun pops out again.
I've been on Pinterest recently. Looking for garden ideas but of course my mind quickly got a-wanderin'. These style pins keep popping up and it would be rude to scroll passed them, eh?
I call this Pinterest look Slouchy Casual. It's basically big cardi, jeans and a skimpy top. There were many versions.
I chose this one. I liked the casual off the shoulder look so put some bits together.
And here it is, ready for public consumption. For I don't think a lady of my vintage can really look anything other than, well, vintage, and off the shoulder slouchy just wouldn't work in M&S!
Underneath my Woolovers cardi, I wore my M&S 501s and a pajama top. Yes, you read correctly, a pajama top. What old black lacy vests I had were very short and skimpy and I didn't even try them on . Hmmnn, what top have I got with black lace, is long and bra-friendly? Why yes, the top half of my Next PJ set!
Sexy slouchy, left. Scruffy slobby, right.

I think I was close on cardi colour and I think I did a pretty good job of adapting this style for an older lady. What do you think?
I expect this cardi shown recently here would have provided more slouch, but the colour was off and I wanted to be true to the Pinterest lady who put the look together, so I eased on the slouching.
And, dear reader, amongst other tasks for the day, I shopped for tea in M&S. Wearing a PJ top. I call it clever re-purposing of PJs as a day-wear item. But, technically, I shopped in sleepwear.
Are PJs trending in a supermarket near you?!

Now, ladies, do you ever copy a look from a mag, a blog, Pinterest?
Have you had any blinding successes?
And have you re-purposed sleepwear? Maybe worn your PJs or nightie in public?!
I'd love you to share by commenting below ...
And finally, I'm sharing with you my first fig of 2017, dear reader.
Well of course, I can't share it physically. And if I did share with you all, you would each get a pretty small nibble on the fig.
This sharing is more symbolic. For I gave it to the family fig connoisseur. It disappeared in a couple of bites and he declared it "Delicious!"
A la perchoine.
