Finally, a new post , no excuses really , just working more than usual and busy doing things in the house and trying to tidy up the garden, left little time and a lack of subject matter didn’t help.
Yesterday John and I enjoyed a short drive in the country to the small town of Evandale, not too far from home. I have shown the town in previous posts as it is a bit special for me as I grew up near here at the airport and attended primary school here.
We stopped to take a few outfit shots at the village green , which is surrounded by these beautifully restored houses. Funny how I really don’t remember these houses looking this good in my childhood days, maybe my memory or more likely they have only looked this good in recent years as the houses changed hands and were renovated.
Another view , this time in the main street with its lovely old trees in their late Autumn glory.
My outfit for today’s country drive was a warm one as it was on the cool side, my old favourite black Moyuru skirt , a black knit and a vintage cream lapin vest that has an amazing bakelite clasp .
I made a decision that I really didn’t want or need any new Winter clothes this year but I would add to my accessory collection instead. Anyone who knows me well is aware of my weakness for sunglasses so when this pair of YSL sunnies caught my attention I knew they had to be mine, they are paired with a pair of cream and black earrings, found at a charity shop a while ago and a vintage black hat.
Funny how your tastes change , in previous times you would never see me in cream or white shoes or boots but this year I am now the proud owner of two pairs of cream boots. I fell for the style , it reminds me of a style that proper Edwardian ladies would have worn. They are Hispanitas , made in Spain, that I found at our wonderful local store, The House of Shoes, that has been trading for many years but has a new young owner that is breathing new life into the business.
On our way home stopping to admire the avenue of magnificent old trees at Logan , an early farming property . I visit here every Autumn as they are quite a sight and fully expected it to be too late this year so it was a pleasant surprise.
The front gate to the property with its arrows , a symbol dating back to early convict times.
I hope everyone is well and for all my Northern Hemisphere friends I hope you have the chance to enjoy some sunshine practising safe distance of course.
