Hello everyone . Well October has come and gone in the blink of an eye and despite all my good intentions to return to blogging on a more regular basis for a variety of reasons that didn’t eventuate.
November is always a busy month with many family birthdays (mine included) , MG Car Club events and various garden related happenings, this is peak rose flowering time here. The blog also celebrates its 8th. birthday too.
Last Monday was a public holiday here and John and I drove to the town of Evandale to take blog photos but also to enable me to get used to a new car ( a secondhand Mazda) with more electronics than I was used to. My outfit for the day was a pair of dark floral pants from Trelise Cooper (this will be their 3rd. Summer and I love them as much as ever ) paired with a black cotton frilled blouse , also Trelise Cooper.
I also added a black and gold patent leather belt, a favourite black boater , orange bangles , Gucci sunnies and black suede bow flats.
A back view showing the pleated ruffle ,I always enjoy a garment that is as good coming as going. I knew the moment I saw this shirt it would fit beautifully into my wardrobe as it will work with so many existing items .
Over the last 8 years I have had so much fun exploring new styles , shapes and colours ( but still often returning to black and white) and sharing them here . Some worked well , others not so much but that is the joy of playing with our style isn’t it. I do find as I get older dressing is so much more about self expression than practicality and way more fun.
The first of the roses are now starting to bloom , the pink one is Fatin-Latour , a fragrant old rose and the apricot is Crepuscule , a climbing Noisette.
A big thank you to all who take the time to read the blog and share a little piece of my world .
