My Personal Style - Angels & Blossoms

Dear fellow bloggers, I promise I will put every effort into posting photos over the weekend, but for now let me keep you in suspense with a written description of my personal style.
First of all, I'd like to share with you why my blog is titled 'Angels & Blossoms'. I have always been extremely fond of any kind of accessories (I get that from my mum), you know, brooches, scarves, purses etc. etc. In the last few years I have developed a particularly strong passion for angel accessories - and not just any kind of angels. There is a lovely little art gallery in our capital, Ljubljana, where you can get absolutely gorgeous brooches (among other things, of course) with little angels, painted by an artist from Croatia. She is very well-known in her country, and also in Slovenia. I fell in love with her art several years ago and now I am a keen collector of her angels. My darling husband understands my passion, so I am presented with several pieces from the gallery ( be it a reproduction of a painting, a piece of jewellery, a bag, a T-shirt...) every time I celebrate anything. Which, of course, gives me great pleasure! Anyway, for the last few years now I don't go out of the house without an angel brooch or pendant. For some reason (well, I like flowers!), I started adding flower brooches next to my angels, and because I really liked the way this turned out, it has become my signature (I know, you need photos. Soon, I promise!). I wear angel and flower brooches on my T-shirts, jackets, scarves... - wherever there's room for them!
As far as colours go, I like vivid, bright colours combined with neutrals. I don't wear a lot of black or white, but I like neutrals like beige, chocolate brown and navy. My all-time favourite colour is green and my favourite colour combination is green with pink (possibly fuchsia, or burgundy red). I usually wear casual clothes (I work from home so I don't 'have to' wear smart clothes every day, but I don't want to spend all day in sweats) and I spend most of my days in flats. I put on heels for special occasions ( but every now and then an ordinary day feels like a special occasion as well...).
Apart from my angel and flower brooches, I don't leave my home without bracelets and earrings; I have some favourite items which I will show you at one point, and I also make my own jewellery, so there is never a lack of accessories in my wardrobe. I also like hats, particularly in winter, and one of my favourite outfits includes wearing leather boots in summer, with no tights.
OK, enough for now, as it gets boring without pictures, doesn't it? I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Take care!
