This is......

Kitty selected this week's "This is". She asks us to name our favorite outfit that expresses our personal style!

Personal style in the more traditional sense eludes me I suspect. At the moment I feel the most comfy in my trackies and pullovers. If going out I might graduate to jeans and sneakers! Exciting huh.

So I thought I would share with you a general few faves from my wardrobe.

The first is, love em, or hate em, my army green crocs.

I acquired these babies in the final throes of my pregnancy. They were the only shoes into which I could fit my godawful swollen boat like feet and cankles.

They are comfy as all get out. Easy to pop on to throw out the rubbish or the recycling. And practical too, as in you can hose them down if you step in dog poop in the back yard!

The second item is my camo peaked cap..

Mr B and I each purchased one in the Cinque Terra before our 15 km 5 town hike. We selected these hats after being "inspired" by a bunch of very gregarious American tourists and the movie "Team America".

Each time I pop this hat on I am a woman on a mission. Think Goldie Hawn in Private Benjamin (although I am not blonde nor too perky most of the time) Walk around the block - yes Sir! Washing out on the line - Yes sir! Weed that garden or give me 20 push ups! Yes Sirrrrrrrrrrrreeeee!

And finally, my favourite accessory is my watch.


I was lucky enough to receive one of these beauties for my 30th birthday. I am told by Mr B that it also qualified as a good luck with "pushing a head the size of a watermelon out of the hole the size of an orange" present. I am hoping that I will look after it well enough that my grandchildren will battle to inherit it for their own (as Nanna only otherwise had those crocs and that horrific camo hat to offer!)
