I’ve been a bit busy (and stressed) recently, and thinking about outfits hasn’t exactly been a priority… It’s nothing to worry about, just the usual: computer problems, getting busy at work, trying to do too many things at once etc…
Anyway, I was in Canterbury, U.K. for a few days, and this is where these photos were taken.
And what was I doing in Canterbury, you might ask. Well, if you are new to this blog, here’s the short version: my husband, Professor M, works in the U.K., so we have a house there. And because my work is in Helsinki (Finland), we travel a lot. As in, one of us travels every week, so that we can spend the weekend together.
Yes, I know: that’s not exactly considered acceptable these days, and we’re probably the main cause of climate change because of our reckless lifestyle etc.
You know what, I don’t give a crap. Yes, climate change is a huge problem, and I agree we all have to change our lifestyles (to some extent). And I’m all in favour of adopting a healthier, mainly plant-based diet and curbing overconsumption. But I will not stop flying or travelling, and I don’t think quilt tripping people is the solution.
Anyway, back to Canterbury… We’re in the process of moving out, and the main purpose of my visit was to sort out what to keep and what to toss…
I ended up donating most of the clothes I had there to charity. But I decided to keep the bag and scarf you see in these photos. And these cool shoes, too.
That was a good thing, by the way, because after I was done decluttering the wardrobe, I had very little left besides the clothes I was wearing on arrival… Let’s call this look ‘Casual Classic‘, it sounds so much better than ‘scraping the bottom of the old wardrobe‘.
OK, now you probably want to know whether us moving out of Canterbury has anything to do with Brexit, right? Well, yes and no. Without Brexit, we might not have even thought of moving, that’s true. But the main reason is that Professor M is changing jobs… So, we’re relocating our U.K. base to an area that is hopefully less hostile to Eurotrash like us (I’m a Finn, Professor M is German). Where exactly? Well, you’ll see, sometime in December…
Just to be clear, Professor M and I will continue our weekly crimes against the environment by travelling between two countries. Yes, one day we will live permanently in one country, but until we retire, we still have to make a living. However, we refuse to let having to make a living prevent us from having a life. Together, that is. Which means travelling…
