Summer Florals in Pinks and Greys

Summer florals in pink and greys became the order of the day , after I found this frilled grey blouse
hidden in the depths of my closet. It is silk by Ted Baker and was bought many moons ago and became the perfect companion for grey and pink floral cotton oriental inspired coat and black Moyuru pants. I also added a black studded belt, a grey hat bought from a milliner last year in Paris
and putty coloured Sergio Rossi wedges.

Today’s photos were taken by my sister in her lovely garden. I had intended to use a tripod and the self timer on my camera for today’s shoot but after a series of near disasters involving a tripod with
a wonky leg and my problems with the self timer , I admitted defeat. Time to invest in a remote that’s for sure, if I plan on doing more on my own.
I enjoy photography , it has been a hobby of mine for many years , dating back to working for Kodak
in the 1970’s and early 1980’s. Usually my subjects are flowers, buildings and scenery and I delight in unusual objects and details. The digital side of photography has been very much a learning curve with
so much to still discover .

    A very interesting pink and grey jacket, Jill. In fact, an interesting, unique outfit (thoughts going back to the time of the Zoot and elegant page boys). I love your individual style – fabulous. xx

    Oh yes , I do remember Zoot from way back and I can see the page boy connection. I so appreciate your continuing support.

    There is nothing better than silk, is there? A little bitcof luxury, and so gentle on your skin. But that jacket totally steals the spotlight, though.

    Pink and grey is so sophisticated, and your beautiful Oriental jacket has a military feel as well, offset with those voluminous moyuru pants, you have created another outfit full of interesting shapes and structures, and it looks gorgeous!

      Oh Claire , you are too kind, so glad you liked my pink and grey mix, a change for me. Hope the flowers are a sign of Spring to come for you.

    A very poetic ensemble, Jill! Love the subtle colors and romantic shapes of the blouse and jacket, and of course topped off with the hat it's a beautiful, eye-catching combination. I also used to love photography and took thousands of photos, first using films like you, and later digital camera. Good luck with your getting back in a saddle again! 🙂

      Oh Natalia , you say the kindest things , thank you. Even though this is a change for me it is an outfit I was so happy wearing.Digital photography is a total learning curve for me and I know I have a long way to go to achieve the results I hope for.

    Flowers, a pinch of pink and gray…I find that you have matched them in a delightful way! The outfit really suits you…I became fond of photography after starting my blog (though I am not a good photographer! ). Little by little I got interested in it…
