Checks and Changes



Today's post is running a little late , after sitting looking at the computer screen expecting words to magically
appear I gave up and went to bed resolving to start afresh in the morning. I rose bright and early to complete the post before work only to find I had no internet connection, the joys of modern technology.


Wearing a black and white check jacket that has seen a few Spring and Summers , white top and
a new Moyuru skirt or pants depending on your interpretation and black sandals, various bracelets
and my black hat that I colour changed last Summer.I am really amoured with the Moyuru skirt/pants,
and its clever style and draping . I find I am much more drawn to clothing with interesting shapes and
textures rather than what is the latest fashion statement.


The rather magnificent building behind me , in days gone by . was the Customs House, the title remains
but is now home to a local property developer , thankfully no changes have been made to the building.

Joining Patti for Visible Monday and Jess for Turning Heads Tuesday.

  6. If I ever needed a pair of pants I dreamed of wearing every day, your skirt/pants just might do the trick. They are famous! They are architectural, drapey, interesting, and comfy-looking. I love look on you. I'm glad the building is still intact. Whew.

    1. Melanie, you have just said everything I thought about these when I first tried them on, I knew they had to be mine.I am really enjoying this look these days.

  7. Technology is great when it works, a serious pain in the butt when it doesn't! Glad it got resolved. Now, onto important matters!
    Oh the structure of those Moyuru skirt/pants! I love them. As Melanie has said, they are architectural - such a gentle sweep that the eyes follow. A clever yet understated design. And I love the checked jacket with them and the finishing touches of the colours bangles and necklace. But it gets even better. The wedges - fab!
    I checked out the Trippen shoes, Jill, after you mentioned them. Oh naughty you - they are amazing! I'm going to save up for a pair!

      Sorry about introducing you to Trippen, aren't they fantastic.

  9. I feel lost when I know I can't connect to the net! And it's funny, because just a couple of decades ago no one had an internet connection in Italy...

      Kind words Dan , thank you so much.

  10. I love black and white checks more than I can express. Your jacket is perfection. And the pants/skirt is the most amazing thing. You look like a little lost country girl just off the bus in the big city. A terrific look for you, Jill.

  11. It happens to me often - I have time and eager to write a new post and then...no internet. But I thought it is only in Nepal only, problems with internet. Beautiful building, so good no changes were done to it. Your new skirt/pants is yet another interesting piece into your wardrobe.
