Today we had the first courgette from the garden. It was so amazing I couldn't help but have a dig around in my wee potato patch. Lo and behold! Potatoes! So I just boiled em up and it's salad for lunch tomorrow...not my favourite-but they are my tuber babies so I will have a go.
I often find that when I go shopping I tend to buy something and then see other things that will match that something, and end up with a new outfit. The only problem is is that I find it very difficult to wear the same outfit twice so the likelihood of me wearing this new combo is small...
I found the shoes in Kurt Geiger, then saw the shirt in Gap. I was walking down a road and saw the bag in their window and read the label which said 23.99, when I went in to have a look I realised it was a charity shop and it was actually £3.99 - bargain! Paid a visit to my favourite fabric shop and bought the fabric for these trouser which I've spent the afternoon making. And there we have it - a complete outfit!
We were off to a birthday party this weekend and last minute decided we should probably bring a little pressie. With the boyfriend being Swedish and it is almost the summer solstice we decided on a quick fix Midsommarsnaps. Recipe is: Big bottle of vodka, 4 spriggs of dill, lemon peel (if you can get it into a twisty shape - the better!) and a tablespoon of runny honey.
I made this shirt based on sort of a pyjamas for daytime idea. There is a matching pair of shorts but as the sun has not been out much I thought I would hide the horror of my pasty legs. Loving the squat pose...
These are my new babies which will hopefully get worn, but it has been pointed out that I am seen in heels less and less frequently. Sadly, it is true...
Anyway, they are Preen by ALDO Rise and were HALF PRICE, yes!!
I made my small dedications to the Queen Lizzie's jubilee. Blue stripes? There's the dip-dyed tshirt above... (also Topshop cardigan and belt, Zara highwaisted trousers)
And here's my newest creation - flowery pyjama fabric dungarees...(also homemade shirt, Clarks sandals - see previous post, and Whistles silver bracelet)
I found this grey Mac in a charity shop. Chopped off the sleeves and sewed on some new ones, which was an old curtain. This was all the rage in pretty much all seasons in 2011, I think I reconstucted it last summer because a raincoat was a necessity. Looks like it is set to be the same this year... (also Gap cardigan, All Saints tassled bag, and Zara trousers)
