Relaxed Avril - not often seen!We arrived on the Thursday afternoon and went straight to a performance, which kept us up until about 10pm US time! So what better a plan after that than to go out - until about 4am US time! I thought I'd not have the energy to keep going the next day but it's interesting how much easier tiredness is without kids around and with the adrenaline rush of performing every day.
Outfit wise, it was black, black and more black....the hero pieces for me were my Adidas Superstars which I walked and walked in (blog to follow), my new black coat from Deja Vu, which was worn every day and my Aldo brogues, again so comfy for all the walking we had to do between gigs and for the time standing and singing.
But I did buy a watch on the last day. Hubby offered me to buy something as a memento of the trip and I had a rose gold watch of some description in my mind. I explored the Fossil and MK options but they weren't really ticking my boxes as I wanted some element of silver or grey - and then I saw this DKNY one with grey leather strap and brushed metal detail..
What the work developments mean is that you'll be seeing me in somewhat smarter clothes - there's not a dress code in either office and many of my new co-workers wear jeans but I want to wear more of my dresses and skirts and keep my casual stuff for my downtime. At least at the start - who knows where that might go.
So I've a few blog posts coming up in the next week - never fear. I've been perusing the shops and doing a bit of trying on...all in the name of research. I've also been sourcing a formal dress for the choir Christmas concert. Fun and games!
Hope you're having a good week,
