Not going out

It is unbelievably cold, with a wind that cuts to the bone if you so much as poke your head out of the door. I AM NOT GOING OUT. Today is definitely going to be an Invisible Monday for me.
I'm wearing fleecy lined footless tights, comfort dressing for slobs. The blouse is ancient. It belonged for our elder daughter in her teens.She is now in her forties. It is from Benetton, probably bought during a sale, so it represents rather good value for money considering the amount of wear that we've both had from it!
It's decorated with quirky little embroidered motifs.
The cut of the blouse is rather unusual, as though someone had lain on the floor and just been drawn around - flat pack.
For Patti's Visible Monday at Not Dead Yet Style.

  1. A hand-me-up! How perfect is that? Love the blouse. Love it on you. Love that it's a square. You hardly look like a slob. No photos of ME on my day off, that's for sure! You do this elegant artistic minimalism like no one else. LOVE!

  2. Well, it's wonderful to stay indoors on a bitter day. And this blouse is perfect for a lounge or two. Very nice! Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

  4. Comfy clothes on a comfy couch. Despite the cold outside, you are warm and cozy in your house. I hope you enjoyed every minute of your day.

    1. I hate to feel the cold so we keep our house warm, with a very uneconomical Aga in the kitchen, an air-source heat pump to supply the central heating and a log fire each evening in the sitting room wood burner! (I think I'm living in the wrong country!)

  5. It was was not easy to focus on the blouse, because your haircut is a gorgeous eyecatcher! Am I the only one to think and say that your new hairstyle looks hot. Is this look from the new hairstylist?
    Ok, now for the blouse ;-)
    Austrian folklore outfits meets an Italian fashion label. Interesting! And cute.
    Enjoy your day at home, Paula

    1. Hair - it's a wreck at the back, but it is getting longer!
      Yes, the blouse is a curiosity, it looks as though it has been designed by a child.

  6. Charming you in your charming stay-at-home outfit! Such great proportions on your excellent figure. And, for an "ancient" blouse, it's pretty attractive and lots of fun. I think Paula is right ... your hair is especially gorgeous today!

    1. I don't really know quite where I'm going with my hair. I know how I'd LIKE it to be - long, sleek, blaa blaa. For now I'm just growing it and chopping at the fringe when I can't see out.

    1. Aww, thanks, Wildside. 'Fabulous' is way too much, (but it makes me feel good!)
