I bought the necklace on our holiday in Mallorca. These days there are many immigrants from the African continent on Mallorca, and some of their crafts end up in the shops around the hotels. This is one of these pieces. It's made of horn so it's never cold, and it's very lightweight.The colours are rich reddish browns. To match it I'm also wearing a new lipstick that is a bit darker than my usual.

Since our daughter is away on the biggest scout camp ever in this country I'm a bit depressed. She's only twelve and hasn't been away from her family before for more than a couple of days. Now we can't even call her since they're not allowed to bring their mobiles. It's so overwhelming to think that she's surrounded by 35.000 people at the other end of the country, without her mom and dad!
Therefore I've done some shopping - for purely therapeutic reasons of course, and I'm already beginning to feel better! Well, jokes aside, I've been going through my capsule wardrobes to spot trouble items and gaps. After many hours of research I've come up with a list of items that I need. Trousers ought to be on top of my list, but I've given up. I can't find any that fit me, in this country or abroad. My best jeans only look good from the front, and other trousers that I have only look good from the back.
What I ended up with was a couple of long skirts (can hopefully be used in winter too), four t shirts - one for each capsule, two sweaters - on coloured and one neutral, a tunic, a ring, a bracelet plus a pair of shoes and a pair of boots. I do seriously doubt though that the boots will fit since it's not one of my usual brands.
However, what I'm most excited about is the book I've ordered from Amazon: 15 to 50 it's called.

As soon as I've read it I'll review it to let you know if it's worth the money and time. It's supposed to teach you how professional stylists work with capsule wardrobes. I've also ordered a colour swatch wallet with soft summer colours, in the hope that I can streamline the choice of colours to be found in my wardrobe.
Now, although I'm late, I'll link up with Patti's Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday. It's so rare that I get to wear a summer dress in this country so I can't miss this opportunity to show the world!
