Seeing Red

This is a rather bright outfit, isn't it? It was inspired by an ad by Gudrun Sjoden (which I can no longer track but if you know Gudrun you are well aware of what I'm talking about). I loved the combination of a striped top and a floral cardigan. Not to mention the bright colours.

My chunky beads added the (not completely necessary) interest and the blue tit brooch just made the whole outfit really cute. Even if I say so myself :)

Outfit details:

- boots - Bata
- skirt - Topshop
- Breton top - Joules
- cardigan - Ivko
- skinny belt - H&M
- oversized beads - Oriental shop in the capital
- blue tit brooch - Dear Emma
- hat - Boden

Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

Spring Is In The Air ...

... and on the rucksack! 

Here's the story: this was my old Head rucksack which had been in my possession since my early teens (a long time ago ...). It had lain all forgotten at my parents' house until my little girl found it. And decided it was to be her favourite as well ...

She carries her music school paraphernalia in it and loves it dearly. I thought it looked a bit plain (it did, honestly!) and I decided to embellish it a little ...

My way. Luckily, my way is pretty much the same as my little girl's way - she has definitely inherited my taste for everything colourful and pretty. She loves that.

So, I'm happy to say ...

... she loves her 'new' rucksack as well!

Ecce Ancilla Domini

One of my favourite holidays in the church year, 
the Feast of Annunciation
One of my favourite works of art by one of my favourite artists, Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

We're celebrating Mother's Day in my country today.
And it's my nameday.

Farewell, Winter

I hope this is one of the last coat scenes for this winter. I'm eagerly awaiting spring - the weather at this point is actually moving in the right direction! Fingers crossed ...

This was a Sunday outfit. Much liked. I'm not a big fan of black (now that's what I call an understatement!) but grey is a totally different matter. It's rather sweet when paired with red, wouldn't you say?

Outfit details:

- boots - Alpina (local brand)
- tights - from a shop in the capital
- tweed skirt - Boden
- rollneck - local boutique
- coat - a pretty little boutique in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia (from a few years ago)
- corsage - craft shop in the capital, I made the leaf
- belt - local boutique
- beret - Seeberger
- tote - Hunter
- angel pendant - birthday present
- angel ring - Christmas present

Purse Madness

One of these beauties is now mine.

I have no idea how many handmade purses 
(handmade in UK, mind you) I actually own.
I must be mad.

But then, I've always known ...

Little Pink Riding Hood

Well, little pink beret, to be precise. 
But, why care about little things, right? :)

This was my Sunday outfit.

I love how Julia's bunny 
matches the pattern 
on my Ness cardi. 
Colour bliss!

And I still love my old tweedy coat - 
I change the buttons every season 
and get a new coat!

Another love is this simple 
yet stunning Joules hare pin.

Outfit details:

- heeled brogues - Boden
- tights - local supermarket
- tweed skirt - Joules
- Breton top - Joules
- cardi - Ness
- bunny pin - Etsy (materialised)
- beret - Seeberger
- coat - husband's birthday present from years ago
- scarf - local boutique
- angel bag!

Sorry for the poor photo quality -
I'm not a very skilled photographer :)

I've been playing with my little camera 
but I'm afraid this is the selection 
of the best shots ...

Another selfie, yay, 
not sure why I'm into these at the moment. 
I'm quite certain it will pass!

Outfit details (whatever you can actually see):

- skirt - Boden
- jumper - Boden
- pretty corsages - handmade by Alix, thank you!

Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

For all you avid cyclists out there, 
I have really wanted to share this. 

 I love it! 

I got the photos by mail,

so I cannot quote the source, sorry :(

Looks fun & delicious, doesn't it?
