September Blessings

Well, my favourite month of the year is over. I haven't done a gratitude post in a while but tonight I feel one's in order. So, this September I've been incredibly grateful for:

- my husband and our twenty-four years together as a couple
- the seventeen years of our happy and loving marriage
- our boy (born in June, you do the maths...)
- our girl, born two days before our 9th wedding anniversary - the greatest gift imaginable!
- last but not least, my bloggiversary - without Angels&Blossoms I would never get to 'know' all of you, my dear blogging friends!

I'm happy to be.

I'm wearing:

- tan leather sandals - local boutique
- skirt - Joules
- tan leather belt - H&M
- top - Dorothy Perkins
- cardi - Boden
- tan leather bag - Benetton

Good bye, summer!

Happy Birthday, K.!

My little girl is turning eight today. I've scheduled this post to be published at the exact time of her arrival. The above picture was taken seven years ago, on her first birtday. She is held by her late Grandpa, my husband's dad. How time flies...

An only so slightly tomboyish outfit for running errands.

Very comfy, though.

I'm not entirely sure whether it's age-appropriate, but to be honest, I don't really care.

One is as young as one feels. In which case I'm in my late teens, apparently...

And wearing:

- footwear - Converse All Star
- cargos - TopShop
- belt - H&M
- T-shirt - Benetton
- cardi - Boden
- turquoise bead necklace - bead shop in the capital

My little girl's turning eight tomorrow!!!

Summer Walks

Some pretty views I enjoy on my (almost) daily walks. These were taken back in July & August, so the scenery has changed a bit since then (no more gorgeously golden wheat fields...). I'll try to update the post with some autumnal views - trust me, they're just as gorgeous!

Blossoms (Whatever Happened To The Angels?)

I got this gorgeous Joules skirt in the summer sale. Together with a similar red one. I fell head over heels in love with the pattern and the colours. And I'm really happy to say that the styling possibilities are endless, at least from my closet's perspective...

You might want to know that I also purchased a blue shirt with the same pattern. Worn together with the skirt I get a lovely 'almost shirt dress'. Throw in a pale pink obi belt and a giant pink rose corsage and you're set to attend a wedding! Or a fancy birthday party in my case, last Saturday. Too bad the photos aren't ready to be published yet... :)

I wore this outfit to church the other day. I don't really wear heels on a daily basis but I like to put them on on a Sunday.

Most of the items in this outfit are quite old, actually. I've had this Wallis twin set for ages (fell in love with it as well oh so many years ago), and the bag, oh my, the bag has been with me for at least a decade. Gosh.

Anyway, as it is often the case, I tend to forget about things in my closet for a while and then revisit them when I add an item to my collection. This twin set hasn't been worn for quite a while, but it comes in really handy with my new Joules florals.

And the fishnets? Heck, I still like them, even though I've become a great fan of plain nude hosiery again, thanks to the Duchess of Cambridge.

I'm wearing: 

- shoes - local boutique
- fishnets - no idea, from my closet!
- skirt - Joules
- skinny belt -  H&M
- twin set - Wallis
- bag - Benetton
- silver necklace -  Etsy (silverpebble)

May this week bring you lots and lots of joy!

Oh Summer, Where Art Thou?

Goodness me, I've done it again - I've taken an unplanned long break from blogging. Sorry about that. Another thing is, I can't promise never to do that again - in fact, it is highly likely that it will happen any time soon... I'll do my best to keep you posted, though! 

I guess we have said goodbye to summer, we may experience an odd warm day in the following weeks if we're lucky, but my bet is that this outfit can be put away for a year...

I'm wearing:

- sandals - Cath Kidston
- shorts - McKinley
- V-neck top - local boutique
- sunglasses - M&S
- bag - made it myself :)
- watch - birthday present from my parents
- bracelet - Alessi (partly self-made)
