Holiday outfits

In the days before I go away I'm always tempted to shop for some new items of clothing.

Nothing expensive just something that isn't a long sleeved grey T shirt.
Perhaps some tight(ish) white jeans that stop just below the knee or a stripey top or two.

Who knows I may even manage a strappy sandal.


But - I don't know why I bother because I always end up looking like THIS!

When did Roy Cropper become a fashion icon?

A birdwatcher?

Well you had me fooled Kaz!

What the beard as well?

You Make Bill Oddie SOUND LIKE A BAD THING...........

This is true Kaz. I always pack frocks and sandals when I go on holiday in the delusional belief that the weather is going to be nice and I'll be able to swan around like a 1950's film star. Then it's always rainy and windswept and I'm wearing hiking boots and a kagoule all the time ... bloody hell.

That's Bill in his garden. Imagine what he wears in the wild.

mj:
The day he left his shopping bag at home.

Laura:
I am a woman of many parts.

Birdwatcher:
Fortunately No.
It's the 'baggy, boots and bins' look that's unavoidable.

Tony:
I love Bill. it's that smug Kate Humble I can't stand.
But I wouldn't mind looking like her.

Betty:
Yes - we always think we'll be someone else on Holiday.
I once bought 2 tops and returned them for a refund when I got home.
At least they were well travelled.

Geoff:
Do I have to?
That picture might look better on Infomaniac.

Do you do the funky gibbon as well?

Blogger Dave said...

But I thought you did look like Kate Humble.

7:34 am  
Blogger I, like the view said...

now, see, I wait till I get there to do the shopping! and then have to purchase another suitcase to bring all my purchases home again

somehow I don't think you could ever look like Bill Oddie

but I am now singing "String" - remember that Goodies hit?

"string for your pants, string for your vest, everybody knows string is the best"

totally irelevant, I know

You try wearing a fur coat permanently Kaz.

Anyway you've cunningly sneaked the information past us that you're going on holiday AGAIN!!!

Steve:
Gibbon half a chance - Yes.

As long as I don't have to do it with Tim Brooke - Taylor.

Dave:
I don't want to disappoint you Dave.
But I'm much more like Scarlett Johansson.

View:
Good plan - and their stuff always fits me better.
'String' seems to have passed me by.

But I love a good ball of string - somehow very reassuring. And as you are a fan of the 'New Scientist' I bet you know all about 'string theory'.

Murph:
Sorry Murph - I'm a vegetarian.

Nowt gets past you does it?
But (shhhh) I've been here since Thursday.

Step away from the army green boxy outfits.

I repeat step away from the army green boxy outfits.

Of course if you go bird watching a lot maybe it is quite practical compared to tight white outfits and strappy sandals.

Blogger CyberPete said...

Those are some huge pockets by the way.

Blogger KAZ said...

Pete:
Thanks as ever for the style advice.

I admit 'boxy' is not a good look for a shortarse.
So I'll have to hide in the hide.

Blogger CyberPete said...

Boxy is never a good look.

No problem.

Our local little Sainsbury's had wet suits this summer (the type surfers wear I think).

They are now half price....and very tempting, that would be a real holiday outfit.

Incidentally, I don't mind Kate Humble...and would probably rather look like her than Bill.

Surely the birds can hear Bill approaching from miles away, what with the "zwich...zwich" of all that Gore-Tex.
I had typed "hear him coming a mile off" but that sounded vulgar.

Blogger KAZ said...

Pete:
Give me 'Slinky' every time.

NiC:
Half price wet suits - what are you waiting for?

Kate Humble? Too bossy, smug, jolly hockey sticks, head girl for me.

Arabella:
Glad you rephrased.
Kate wouldn't want to hear Bill coming at any distance.

I assume that you were doing a hand stand , I cant imagine you are normally bearded.

1:53 pm  
Blogger garfer said...

And there was me thinking you were a fur coat and nae knickers sort.

You need a woolly cap to complete your gormless yokel Bill Oddie look.

2:22 pm  
Blogger Mopsa said...

I get the feeling that you are a lot taller than Bill... perhaps he'd benefit from some high strappy sandals?

3:49 pm  
Blogger CyberPete said...

*gives Kaz a slinky and a pair of strappy sandals*

5:31 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Beast:
Bill Oddie is often known as a 'bearded tit'.
I'm just known as a 'tit'.

Garfer:
You know us Northern gals - nae coat at all whatever the weather.
Just a woolly hat and a basque.

Mopsa:
Unfortunately I am probably one of the few people who is shorter than Bill.
Fortunately I am also slimmer.

Pete:
OOh Thanks!
(puts on shoes and looks down at Bill Oddie).
Eat yer heart out Humble.

That Birder looks like he has enough pockets to bring home an entire flock of specimens.

I hope he doesn't get cold..honestly if he wants to know what cold is send him over here in February..although there aren't many birds to watch..
a couple of dense Sparrows who forgot to bugger off but that's about it.

Anytime. Besides it was the ones I wore to MJs pool party so you may want to clean them a bit.

You know how rubbish she is a housekeeping.

Surely a few Canada geese stick around for the winter.

Pete:
But she keeps her blog very clean?!

She does?

It's all a cock-up to me

Pete:
I was being ironic.

And just why is this look a bad thing? Got to be careful with those UVA rays you know. Keep well covered, that's my motto.

Give him a balaclava and he'd have his own microclimate in there.
