Today’s post is not only a little late as we were away from home spending time with our family in Hobart but it is a collection of this and that as opposed to a constructed post on a specific subject.
It really is hard to believe that we are well into February , January really flew by in the blink of an eye. I know this may seem different for my friends in the Northern Hemisphere in the midst of Winter. After many months of planning our trip to Cuba is now less than three weeks away and as is always the way there is lots of last minute things to be done, not the least of which is to finalise my travel wardrobe.
Another reminder of how quickly time flies, my son Zac with little Harry. It really does seem like yesterday that we were watching Zac discover the fun of slides.
You really do forget how quickly babies grow and become little people with their own unique personalities. This was taken on the village green in the historical town of Richmond , were we joined Harry and his Mum and Dad for lunch.
I mentioned several weeks ago that I have once again starting the process of growing the colour from my hair and embracing the natural colour , at that point I had no idea what that really was. Well as you can see it really is a slightly lighter version of the brillo pad grey I gave up on last time and am still not really thrilled with this time either. So as much as I try to like the colour nature intends I am not fully convinced it is me. Only time will tell I guess.
Today’s outfit is based around the cream embellished top I found a couple of months ago. It was a recycle find and is Moschino Cheap and Chic made from silk. I fell for its details and the shape of the neckline and sleeves but there are a couple of problems , the style is smock like and way too short for me to wear as a dress. Adding this sparkly belt and wearing over these wide black silk Maude Dainty pants is more me. After we took these shots I had a play with it and have decided to see if a dressmaker could take it to waist level and make it more a blouse. Sometimes, I do wish I could sew.
These clever details are the reason it called my name and it works just perfectly with the C0er de Lion necklace that was a Christmas gift from my employer.
The gold butterfly shoes from Tilly Rose also worked beautifully. I have had these shoes for many Summers and will admit until recently they weren’t very comfy but finally they are broken in, hooray.
A surprise in my garden this morning , a white lupin flower . Not planted just cross pollinated , thank you Mother Nature, I always love white flowers.
