Skirt - Charity shop

Leather clutch - Handmade by my Grandmother in the 1950s

I really need to find some more photo taking locations. I think the old yellow brick wall is going to get pretty boring pretty fast. Still, at least I managed to catch the last patch of golden sun. It's funny that I considered this skirt to be 'long' until I looked at these pictures. I have really been wanting some longer length skirts for this weird in between weather, however I can't seem to find any that aren't either maxi or strangely frumpy round the waist. The hunt therefore continues, unless I can rouse myself to make one. I got this blouse at a jumble sale last year and have struggled to wear it since it's quite short, but I'm glad to have found a way to wear i. Since it's made of lovely thick fabric and has that pretty cut out detailing too. Bit of a slow week, it's always tough going back to work after long weekends. Still I have eaten both courgette and chocolate coco cola cake today, which always makes life a little easier.


  1. i love that hat!

  2. I think it's fine to have one background--makes it all about the outfit. You look pretty and that blouse is definitely a good find! And the light is beautiful in these pictures!

  3. I agree, that hat is perfect!
