And Then Some More!

Crochet, of course :) 

A little Granny Square phone cosy 
for my girl this time.

She picked the colours, 
I picked the button :)

It's her first phone 
(hand-me-down from her Mum) :)

She loves it.

And she's very happy with its 'new coat'!

Crochet, Crochet, Crochet...

Another crochet stool cover... 

This one lives in our bathroom!

It looks very similar to any other 
crochet stool cover in our house...

... but that's called interior decorating, 
right? :)

Religion & Science?

Photo: source

I realise this hasn't got much to do with pretty little things or my outfits, but I just have to let you know how excited I am to hear what this man has to say on the above-mentioned subject. He's visiting our capital today, I'm off to attend his lecture in the evening. Plus he's British, so - music to my ears, whatever he's talking about!

Put Your Washing On The Line

An outfit in more autumnal colours. It's actually warm enough to go out like this. At the end of October. And I don't live in the south of Spain.

It feels more like wearing marine stripes and bermuda shorts. Might do, come to think of it. To make the most of this year's Indian summer :)

Outfit details:

- shoes - Camper
- skinny jeans - Boden
- top - local boutique
- jacket - Tom Tailor
- necklace - M&S
- brooch - handmade by my friend 
- bag - Etsy

In this weather, 
the washing should be dry in a jiffy!

All Black?

Not really. 
I mean, we're talking about me, 
I literally fear wearing black.

I do crave it once or twice a year, though.
You know, just to air out my stash of black clothes.
Which isn't too big :)

I couldn't go all black, though, could I?

- tights - can't remember
- bermuda shorts - local boutique

Pretty Little Things

This set is sooo pretty, isn't it? When it comes to cosmetics I'm still a little girl. I don't care much for fancy lipsticks and lotions and potions, give me a pretty little pot of lip balm and I'm happy. 

So, Joules, thank you. I'm happy :)

Of Stripes & Bikes

OK, one bike, but I wanted a rhyme. 
Sort of, anyway. 
Not much different from yesterday's outfit 
but one little change made all the difference.


Outfit details same as yesterday as well. 
Even the Breton top comes from Boden :)

I hope the postman delivered it safely.

And I hope it put a little smile on her face.

Happy birthday, R.

Blossoms, Polka Dots & Colours

Originally, I wanted to do one of those 'three things' posts. Then I realized that there were more items on each of the first three photos anyway. So I added another one, just for fun. These are a few things that make my heart happy these days:

- a very pretty Cath Kidston flask

- some totally gorgeous-looking (100 % natural!) 
balms from Figs & Rouge

- two breathtakingly pretty handmade crochet purses, gift from my little girl's best friend 
(one for me and one for my girl)

- a lovely mini umbrella from Joules

Week Of Inspirations - Day Five

Last but not least - 
a Gudrun Sjoden add 
I spotted in the Country Living mag.

I went for a different colour scheme 
but I loved the idea of layering this add offered.

One minor detail - it was an experiment, 
I didn't actually go out in this outfit.

Do I dare?

Let's wait and see ...

Outfit details: 

- heeled brogues - Boden
- tights - local shop
- dress - Joules
- Breton top - Boden
- vest - Miss Selfridge
