Summer shirts, simplicity and other stuff
Thank you, thank you, for all your lovely, supportive comments about my new audio adventure. The feedback is very much appreciated. That’s Not My Age: the podcast has been well-received and I’m chuffed to bits. To be honest, it is a bit of an experiment, and one I entered into with some trepidation because I knew it was a big undertaking, not dissimilar to writing another book. And also because I have always seen myself as someone who likes to ponder over things and draw out a written conclusion as opposed to being a chatty, entertaining broadcast journalist. Anyhow, it’s good to have a new challenge and and I’m constantly trying to figure out ways of making That’s Not My Age work more effectively as a business….
There are three podcast episodes currently online and the plan is to post profiles of each my guests (as I did with Lucinda Chambers) and release a couple more interviews over the coming weeks. And then take a rest over summer and launch series two in September. The aim is for it to be a ‘slow’ podcast, there isn’t a big production team behind this, and so episodes will arrive in instalments. I just need to figure out how to do that and keep this site and all my social media ticking over without having a complete meltdown. Fortunately, my very part-time assistant Helen has been an absolute gem over the last few weeks.
In other news, the summer shirts are ON. Faff-free and fabulous, the Super Shirt fits seamlessly into my just-smart-enough wardrobe. As I cycle to a shared office space most days, I’m looking for a simple outfit that says ‘business on the top half, co-working on the bottom’. And the loose-fitting, cotton shirt is a neat way to add gravitas to a pair of relaxed harem pants or posh joggers. This navy organic cotton top is an old Eileen Fisher and the superior, heavy jersey twill cotton stretch trousers were a gift from Sunspel (they are so good I’m going to buy a pair in black). The scuffed white brogues are from the Grenson sample sale. Not worn on my bike but kept as an office standby for those all-important business coffees.
Summer ready and smart-enough-plus.
