Thankyou for the advice ... you're right , of course .
This season's wardobe must have a touch of pink ; and deep olive green does go so well with certain shades of pink . Definitely a paisley shawl and a somewhat larger bonnet with slightly larger ribbons for high days and holidays . And , given the chilly wind , the football socks sound cosy .
Just not the gardening clogs or Twinkletoe's gold trainers ... I'm not convinced they're me , somehow .
J.A. Kruseman's anonymous lady* , painted in 1829 , looks so delighted with her outfit and I'm sure I will be , too .
* Doesn't she look like Mrs. Bumble !
