Yesterday we took a road trip to Hobart to enable John to collect a motorhome that he is delivering to Brisbane. Fortunately, we had time to stop at the historic town of Richmond to take a few shots.
The convict built bridge , dating from 1823., makes the perfect back ground for my black wool long jacket
by Sabatini, worn over a black tunic and pants. I have had this jacket for a few Winters and as was the case
today , the first wear of the season reminds me of what drew it to me in the first place. I never tire of its details, the leather trim on the pockets and the open zippered trim on the collar and ruffle.
There was even time to meet my eldest son for a lunch and to catch up on all his news and a some window shopping. I did make one purchase , I found a copy of the new book Style Forever by Alyson Walsh.
Alyson is English , a freelance fashion writer and has a a wonderful blog, That's Not My Age .
I have always enjoyed her writing and the book does not dissapoint . Unlike so many books on the market,
this is written with no age limit on style.
My drive home allowed me some solitary thinking time, time has come for some re-invention.
Not sure which direction this will take , maybe time for some artistic endeavours, a new career , either paid or voluntary .Maybe travel is on the horizon , I will see what presents itself.
