Weekly Wardrobe – Pink & lilac

On Saturday Chris and I had a look round Clark’s Village in Street on the hunt for boots for each of us – preferably in the last of the January sales! We were unsuccessful, but did come away with a few things we hadn’t intended on buying! We also stopped for a quick Weekly Wardrobe photo-shoot – I’m sorry if I look freezing, because I was!….

 

Blush pink jumper

This blush pink jumper (and the pale blue one like it) have been favourites since I bought them the week before Christmas. I particularly love this colour and it seems to go with all skirts and trousers in my wardrobe. It was from Tesco and unfortunately is no longer the current range at my local branch, but these items often pop up in a different colour, so I will keep my eye out! It’s just the right amount of bagginess to wear over the top of long-sleeved tops, but thin enough to wear comfortably under coats. Have a look at me wearing it as my outfit of the day on my You Tube channel when I went to the choir Christmas do. Good news for you if you like it; it’s currently half price on the website! If you are interested in buying, then I’d suggest going down a size if you’re not sure which to get. I’m definitely at the top end of size 16 at the moment, but I took mine back to swap for the 14 as it was too big. (That felt nice!)

The fluffy pink snood is so soft, I wish you could touch it! I bought it from a shop in Wells called Forever England. I love it there, it’s really my style and such good value too. I’ve never owned a snood before, so I wasn’t completely sure about it, but like I mentioned, I was seduced by its fluffiness and I had to have it against my skin!

Lilac ballet skirt

My lilac skirt was from George at Asda a few years ago. I like the way the hem hangs lower at the sides and the tulle peaking out gives it a ballerina feel. I love anything that gives me the opportunity to pretend I’m a ballerina, so this was a winning buy.

 

I’m wearing simple black leggings underneath, and my boots were a Christmas present from Chris and are from Timberland. See them more closely in last week’s post.

My bag is the same one I’ve used most of the winter and can be seen better in this post. Some Kipling bags are on sale at the moment on Amazon – take a look at the link below.

Are you a snood wearer? To be honest, I’m still not sure!

Weekly Wardrobe – New Forest Fairy Festival
August 15, 2016
This the event of the year for my Oshun clothing brand. It is the day after the New Forest Fairy Festival and I am utterly exhausted! It was an amazing weekend; incredibly busy; the sun shone and it was a complete success. Unfortunately it was so busy, I couldn’t leave my stall at all so I only managed to briefly visit one of the people I interviewed before the event. It’s a real shame I didn’t see the others, and that it the only down side of the weekend – other than that, it really couldn’t have been better. Everyone is so friendly and the atmosphere is lovely, so what better place to bring you my weekly wardrobe pictures from! Only one outfit this week as I was too occupied with getting ready for the festival beforehand. I’ll tell you more about the festival in my Monthly Memoir post at the end of the month….
How to style a simple grey t-shirt
September 26, 2016
You don’t need me to tell you how to style a grey t-shirt – it goes with everything: jeans or any style trousers; any length, colour or design of skirt; or under dungarees or pinafore dresses. However, I do want to suggest that’s it’s a much more flexible than the plain white t-shirt. White doesn’t really suit me anyway – I have fair skin with a cool tone, so white tends to wash me out, whereas grey basically somehow makes me look a bit better! Here’s a couple of outfits with the same t-shirt. They were taken a couple of months apart from each other, and when I picked out the purple skirt, I had totally forgotten the previous outfit also had purple bottoms. Never mind, second to dusky blush pink, purple is my next favourite colour to wear with grey…..
Pink fairytale dress
Making a flower fairy dress for Threads of a Fairytale
September 6, 2018
I haven’t shared my work for Threads of a Fairytale here for a while, so I thought it was time I changed that! I’m also planning on blogging more often and linking more blogs with videos on my YouTube channel. There’s something about September that feels like a new year isn’t there? Even though this is the first autumn neither of our kids are starting a new term! So this dress is perfect for princess flower fairies off to the ball or alternative brides who would like to wear pink on their wedding day…..

How to make a woodland fairy wedding gown – The story behind the dress
September 21, 2017
If you’re new here, I should begin by saying that I make dresses for my business, Threads of a Fairytale. My husband, Chris and I had the photoshoot in mind before I even started making the dress, so I knew exactly what I wanted to begin with, which is fairly unusual for me! So the dress originated as a vintage pure silk Indian tunic that more-or-less fitted me. It’s a gorgeous mottled moss green pure silk fabric with lovely metallic dots – called Mukesh work – which give a beautiful shimmer in the light. Then I went round my various stashes of fabric round the house, gathering bits and pieces that would blend well with the colour…..
