Mint



Top: Ted Baker
Skirt: Topshop

It's been too long. Life has been hectic for a few months so blogging time has been non-existent. I find it's such a shame when you work so much you don't have time to feed your creative side...but that's life!
Unless I want to go and live in a commune, wearing hessian sacks and eating from compost heaps, work is what's got to happen.
I've been cleaning out my wardrobe/drawers/boxes/suitcases looking at what I bought in previous Summers. I found my silk and cashmere Ted Baker jumper in mint/grey. I don't wear it enough but it never seems the right time, and then it's packed away again with the hope of possibly making an appearance next year. Its so light I feel like I'm wearing a cloud. Yes, a cloud.

White Stuff


White and I are having a moment.

I've started making my own clothes so whilst I'm learning, the simple cuts of Spring's RTW collections are a godsend.

Floral Stuff

 
 




Getting some inspiration from the countryside and decided to wear my flower print shift dress. So easy to slip on and let the print do the talking. Trusty Stone The Moon necklace...will never stop wearing this thing.

Blue Swing





 
Cracking out my Monki dress. I got this in Copenhagen before Monki swam across the Channel and I was quite put out that I was having to leave behind a shop which I really liked and probably wouldn't see again. It was the same with Cheap Monday and Gina Tricot. It's fine now though because Monki (and Cheap Monday) have opened on Carnaby Street (a long time ago I might add...I'm not writing this to let everyone know like they opened yesterday...this is just where this post ended up going) and when I get the urge I go and see what's what there after work. I was really impressed by the shops in Copenhagen due to the fact that even though everyone is thin and, so weirdly, beautiful, they stock the whole range of sizes from tiny to massive. Something which the British high street could take note of.

The Pink Jacket




 
 

Got myself a brand spanking new jacket. Not my usual choice of colour but this stood out so much - for obvious reasons - that I was strangely drawn to it. It's a bit of an enigma though...it's bright pink so obviously for Summer...but it's thick and lined inside so too hot to wear on a sunny day/ any day which is slightly warm. This, however, is England, so how many good days are we realistically looking at this Summer?
New Stella McCartney bag. Love.

New Whistles Dress. I only ever buy their stuff in the sales but I do love what they do.
