Water Is Good For You

Especially if it comes in a lovely bottle 
with a crochet cover :)

Inspired by Lucy, of course.

As always :)

Crafting With Mollie

This pretty stitch flower kit was a free gift with the 30th (!) issue of Mollie Makes magazine. A long time ago, yes. I only managed to finish it a couple of weeks ago, though. I'm not a very skilled stitcher :)

I didn't frame it with an embroidery hoop, as suggested, but chose a pretty wooden frame instead.

I like my little 'love' rose :)

Purple Cycling

I love the colours in this outfit. Purple is not one of my favourite colours but this particular shade is "tolerable", as Mr Darcy would say about Miss Elizabeth Bennet :). 

The outfit is put together with a number of favourites: the skirt, the brogues, the scarf, the bike neclace ... not necessarily in that order!

Outfit details:

- brogues - Joules
- tights - local brand
- skirt - Brora
- long-sleeve top - Boden
- tweed jacket - InWear
- leather belt - Jack Jones
- Liberty scarf - Etsy
- bike necklace - Etsy
- corsage - local supermarket

Hop on and go :)

I can well imagine a skirt 
with a border of dandelions ... :)

Wouldn't it be really pretty?

Naomi, Marcie & Lorelli

Not my new friends, I'm afraid. 
Wish they were, though - 
in my wardrobe!

Blossoms, Blossoms, Blossoms

Remember this mac? My staple?
I am also a proud owner of 
a one-piece swimsuit 
with the same pattern. 
Which I love. 
The pattern, I mean. 
And the swimsuit, of course. 
And the mac.

Well, now there's this ...

Archives II.

Palm Sunday outfit. I traditionally wear this coat every Palm Sunday. It sort of goes with the theme (not exactly palm leaves there, but you get the idea ...).

This year I paired it with my tweed skirt and peplum jumper, and to spice it up a bit, I put some greens next to my blues :)

This silk embroidered belt from Brora still makes my heart jump with joy whenever I lay my eyes on it. Isn't it just one of the prettiest things ever? And it was on sale, too, all those years ago :) A bargain!

Outfit details:

- heeled brogues - Boden
- tights - home closet
- tweed skirt - Joules
- peplum jumper - Boden
- silk embroidered belt - Brora
- coat - Boden
- pink belt - Topshop
- green scarf - souvenir from Venice
- green ring - birthday present from my lovely friends - 
so pretty, isn't it?

Archives I.

Oh dear, my blog has been hibernating! So sorry about that. There are still some yummy outfits on the camera to share from before the warmer springy weather so here we go.

Not my usual colour scheme, black, but every once in a while I feel the need to air my black clothes - just in case. I desperately need very bright pops of colour to go along, though.

And the dress is grey, anyway, so not all black :)

This was my inspiration - 
I'm not quite as daring but I loved it!

Outfit details:

- shoes - local shoe shop (no longer there, I'm afraid)
- tights - home closet (old)
- dress - Boden
- leather belt - local supermarket
- scarf - Kokoska (local brand, no longer available)
- coat - Dorothy Perkins
- clutch - local boutique
- earrings - local crafts shop, handmade

I could still wear this to church, mind you, and wouldn't be hot for one second ...
