Sometimes you just have to take stock don’t you, and appreciate the week for what it was.
Here, cold, rainy and very windy.
But so many good things going on, not to mention some lovely products across my desk which would make inspirational gifts for loved ones.
First up though, the feel good factor of all feel goods – puppy love. Can you resist a puppy? Not me?
I was lucky enough to spend time with Bear recently – isn’t he just the cutest!
Lots of people have replied get a Rescue dog is we are to get one of our own again. What do you think? What sort of dog do you have?
Instagram and Facebook
Earlier in the week I posted the photo, you can see below, to Instagram. The top is gifted from Vivid International, and everything else is from my wardrobe.
On Facebook this look received lots of comments both good and not so good.
I truly believe that we can and should wear whatever we please, most especially as we get older. But I’m always happy to hear what other people have to think and say, as you should be too. Just don’t take it to heart, but do take anything constructive and build on it.
Styled by my daughter today 😍 She’s encouraging me to be a little more adventurous in the way I put things together.
Unlike we non-famous baby boomers, Meghan Markle has to comply with a strict dress code.
Gawd, just imagine!
Other weird dress code rules
In this post about Royal dress codes, find out why the queen wears gloves, Prince William wears chinos, and the dress code rule that Meghan has already broken. Oops!
Until next week,
Wear what you love and make sure you do something you love too!
What do you think of dress code rules and general etiquette? Baloney or Necessary?

I think the Royal dresscode is going to change gradually over the next decade or so – it started changing with Princess Di and will continue to do so as these gorgeous young women step up and stake their claim. I love seeing what they choose to wear (and how much each of their dresses costs astounds me!)
Yes, you’re right Leanne. The monarchy is changing in so many ways, and I’m sure the Royal dresscode will too.

Interesting reading about the Royal dress codes. I guess justified, they are royalty after all and they need to set a standard. I am sure Megan is still learning as she goes along and we won’t see her in an off-the-shoulder dress any time again soon. Though I must say she looked stunning in it. I am glad I don’t have to follow dress codes, though my wardrobe is in dire need of an update. Too many sloppy around the house clothes. 🙂 comfy though. Have a great weekend Jo.
Hi Jill, yes I guess they do need to set a standard and Meghan is used to Hollywood dressing rather than Royal dressing which is much more restrictive. I agree, she looks stunning in whatever she puts on.

Hi Jo, I’m sure you’ll get a fab response to these posts – I know I’m always amazed at how much interest people show in my “sentence a day” wrap ups! As for the royal dress code, I’m sure Meghan will still wear what she wants in her own time – doesn’t Kate like topless bathing?! It’s like any job, there is usually some sort of uniform or dress code. Although the rule about pantihose wouldn’t last long if the royals were based in Brisbane, far too hot and humid to bother most of the time!
Hi Janet, I love your sentence a day posts. I think as the world becomes more connected but less connected it’s fun and interesting and supporting to read what other real women do with their days. LOL about the pantithose in Brisbane! I’ve been wearing pantihose this winter in WA, but it’s a very short season for it in reality.
I’m super glad we don’t have those wardrobe rules like the royalty. It’s been way more fun to dress in what makes us feel good!!
Absolutely Jodie – we are so fortunate. There’s such a price for fame!
