Self Portrait: ‘Antoinette’

I took this self portrait  on the roof of the Rondo Theatre in between scenes where I was not on stage during one of our matinee performances.  I cannot express in words how much fun I had playing an 18th century princess in the Cinderella Panto and getting to dance around stage in pink and my hair piled high in curls. I honestly try to wear denim trousers as little as possible because of the fact that I love dressing up so much. Perhaps I was born in the wrong era.

What to Wear on a Country Walk – Winter 13/14

Country Walk EnglandWe have nine more weeks of Winter and that has not stopped us from going on country walks around our area of Bath, England.  However the shorts, sleeveless shirts, and trainers of our summer attire have had to be replaced by our winter wardrobe. When you are in England I always recommend double checking the weather right before you head out.  Check the temperature, the wind, and if rain or snow might be a factor.  Next, it is always good to plan your route before hand to give yourself a good time reference for how long you will be out.  With your information gathered you can than gauge how to dress appropriately for your country walk.  Remember just because you are going for a country walk, does not mean you have to dress frumpy. There are so many fashionable looks from Peter Hahn you can put together for your country walks from practical footwear to appropriate coats.
