Summer has finally arrived here and it is most welcome after a cool, wet Spring. Summer and spots somehow are the perfect pairing for me .
Maybe spots take me back to my childhood , lots of spotted Summer dresses and bathing suits ( it was the 1950’s) . Whatever the reason I can never resist spots and this Moyuru linen top was no exception.
I paired the top with wide linen pants also from Moyuru . The shoes are United Nude and were purchased on sale locally.
My accessories for the day included a Crochetta straw fedora , vintage cream earrings, cream bangles and cream Fendi sunnies. I wore this outfit to meet my friend, Janet, for tea and a catch up on our news as well as a spot of window shopping . I may have found a couple of new to me bangles at Vintage Red Fox, too good to leave behind.
A couple of weeks ago John and I visited the town of Longford to enjoy the annual Open Garden Day. Longford is a pretty town with many historic homes and several were open to the public for the first time. The gardens were so varied from the grand , formal garden to pretty cottage gardens and a rather wonderful sculpture parkland garden a few kilometers from town. Unfortunately my camera played up on the day and I lost several photos. Here are just a few.
I would like to finish this post on a rather personal note as last Wednesday marked twenty years since our little girl, India , passed away . She was only eight and died after a two year battle with a brain tumour. I admit I found this year rather hard , another milestone has passed .
India was a little character who loved to dress up , especially in pink and was always dancing. We packed a lot in those eight years together.
