Visible Monday catchup

I've been away from home and have recorded my Monday outfits in different locations. What a delight it has been to escape floods, winds and gloom for a bit. (Took my umbrella and quilted mackintosh with me, but, hurrah, didn't need them once I had left the airport.)
I travelled out in this Boden black linen shirt-waister, with black leggings and a large but very fine purple pashmina that packs into the smallest space. The dress has four button-down pockets that are just the thing for safe ticket storage.
Once I arrived in the sunshine of Havana I shed the warm layers.
It is such a useful and comfortable dress that I have it in this other colourway.
Downside, it's linen, it creases.

On December 3rd I hit the beach in a cheap and cheerful collection of purple clothing.
Bikini from George at Asda
Cardi from M&S
Cotton wrap a present from Africa
Beaded sandals from Duo.

    1. What a nice welcome home, Bonnie. I'm glad to read that you are recovering well from your tumble.
      This week is heart breaking as we have had to put our beloved Maisie to sleep.
