Spring has arrived in my part of the world heralding the arrival of the first magnolia blooms on my tree , an event that never ceases to amaze me as the bare branches become a confection of pink blooms.
To celebrate the arrival of Spring my colour of the day was berry or grape depending on your point of view. I am not one to embrace the supposed colours of the season as dictated by “experts”, as far as colour goes I simply choose to wear what I like and what suits me.
Spring also comes with uncertain weather , today went from sunshine to rain to hail and then back to sunshine , thus a change of location mid photo session today from the garden to the industrial site.
Both of today’s berry pieces are from Return to Splendour , a local consignment store. The skirt is from Kokomorino and the jacket from Bec and Bridge , Australian designers, I love the blanket stitch edging on this little jacket, takes me back to school sewing classes.
Finishing touches are a black knit beret , a double string necklace that I have had for many years, sunnies from Karen Walker , a multi- colour bangle and a wide belt from Crochetta . I am enjoying rediscovering my belt collection, goes to prove never part with anything , its time will come again.
