60s Do

Just look at that fancy hair. My hair never looks like that, apart from on the rare occasion I take a trip to the hairdresser! I may just have to try a little harder in the future though because I really did enjoy having bouncy, soft hair for a change. It made me Nancy Drew??

I seem to spend winter dressing like a school child these days...not that I consider that a bad thing. Hold on to your innocence while you can I say!

This hat I just re-discovered when I came home for the holidays. It used to be mine when I was little and I had a fancy blue matching coat. We will move on from the fact that my head is so small that it still fits and just think about how fun it is. Especially when I can still wear it with a matching navy coat!

Oh mustard smocks...

Just looking at these photos when there is now still snow on the ground makes me cold. And whilst I will admit I was a little chilly when taking these photos, despite the two layers underneath my dress (hurrah for Uniqlo basics!), I wouldn't not even contemplate wearing so little today!

These photos were taken in Herefordshire by my beautiful sister-in-law, Tracy, where we had a marvellous time frolicking around the garden. Followed by a nice cup of tea and a scone. Country life can't get more English than that.

Enter also Pippin, one of our dogs. Yes that is a toy hot dog we are playing with...

Dress: Dear Creatures
Tights: Uniqlo
Shoes: Topshop
Ring: Made many years ago by my grandmother

I am off to Paris in the morning so expect photos from there to follow!

Chilly Days.

One thing I remember every time I come back from Sydney to a London winter is, boy, does it get cold here. I mean we aren't living in the Arctic or anything but I definitely have to build up the layers which by now I have got pretty good at! I do occasionally get bored with having to wear the same coats in rotation for a good few months though.

This is one of my favourites. It is something about those fluffy cream cuffs and collar paired with the navy which certainly makes chilly outings that much brighter.

A very good place to start. Well here goes my first post, just a few simple shots of my outfit.
As I am new to this world of blogging, I shall have to be forgiven for my lack of ability to use a computer. Bare with me while I figure it all out!

Here's to the first of many more.
