I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Not Dressed As LambWith a rare forecast of three days in a row without rain, I decided to set myself up with my sewing machine outside, where I can look up and see Glastonbury Festival being put together in the fields nearby. In a couple of weeks time, the cup carriers and bottle bags I’m making will be for sale there at Water Aid stalls. Anyway, my outfits this week were mainly based around comfort! The link-up with NotDressedAsLamb involved tote bags this week. Well, the only time I actually went out and needed a bag, was to choir, as I needed something that day to carry my folder of music….

The pink vest in this outfit came from Glastonbury Festival, where I buy most of my clothes every year. This top is from several years ago (I don’t remember the name of the stall) and I bought one in brown as well as it’s so difficult to find vests long enough to cover your bum. The label is Popeye and Olive. I’m wearing it with a pair of maroon bloomers from Haruka in Glastonbury town.

Here are the same bloomers the next day, with a long black top from Zara that was originally white, but I think got a bit stained, so I put it in with a black dye when I was dyeing my husband’s shirts (he ordered two that looked beige online, but turned out to be a little too pink!)
Here I am on last year’s birthday present – the hanging egg chair. I absolutely love it and it’s so comfortable. I often take out my laptop and notebooks and get some writing done outside.

WW2-8

There’s a small shop down one of the little alleyways in Bath and unfortunately I can’t for the life of me remember its name. I always pop in there and in the end of summer sale last year, I picked up this dress by Made In Italy. I can see myself living in this dress the warmer weather as it’s so easy to wear and comfortable, but the shape is a little bit quirky too. I also love the polka dots on the linen fabric. My blue shoes are from Clarks.

WW2-11

This wraparound dress is from Fat Face and I love the purpley plum colour as well as the flattering style. I bought the bag in Walmart when we were on holiday in America last year. I’ll be honest, I hadn’t used it until this theme from NotDressedAsLamb came up. I like a good shoulder bag and I knew that when I bought it, but I loved the soft shades of the floral print on the canvas and the small leather embellishments, and on top of that, the bargain price of £11 meant I couldn’t leave the bag behind. Now that I’ve thought of a regular purpose for it, I’ll always keep my choir music inside and hang the bag on our coat-rack rather than stuffing the folder in a corner of the kitchen dresser all week. Much prettier!

If this post hasn’t quite been baggy enough, please take a look at this one, about a dress I made entirely out of tote bags given out at Glastonbury Festival.

Game of Thrones costume ideas
October 7, 2016
Winter is coming and that means halloween is creeping up on us, so I thought I’d start you off with ideas for costumes from the famous HBO series, Game of Thrones. I’ll be honest, I didn’t get into it straight away – I think we gave up on it after a few episodes because I thought it was too violent and gratuitous and already characters I liked got killed. Then I knew I was going to meet Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) as she was going to judge the competition where we made items of clothing from old books. So I had to watch it, just in case it came up in conversation! So we ploughed through, and it wasn’t until the third series when I actually started enjoying it. Then I really got into it! Here are some ideas from Etsy….

I’ve had a hectic week this week. After the New Forest Fairy Festival, I had two days to do about six months-worth of cleaning before my parents came to stay! This is the outfit I wore when we went out for a lovely meal together. I thought I’d take the opportunity to wear these gorgeous wedge sandals from Faith that I can barely walk in, considering I only had to get from the car to the pub and back again! It’s not that they’re too tall – the style of the platform wedge makes them fine in that respect; but the lack of ankle support is the problem. That back heel strap keeps slipping down turning the shoes pretty much into flip-flops. Not ideal when you’re four inches off the ground! None-the-less, as you can see, they are just too pretty not to wear….
Weekly Wardrobe – USA road trip
July 20, 2016
Well I last left you in Washington DC (having taken a train from New York) looking round all the wonderful museums and galleries, which, by the way are absolutely free to visit. Since then we hired a car and journeyed to Nashville, Memphis and now we’ve made it all the way down to New Orleans where the hotel we’re currently in seems to having working wifi (as long as not too many people play Pokemon Go at the same time). So here’s my weekly wardrobe post (just a day late) though I haven’t got much time so there aren’t any links I’m afraid….
