I realised the other day that I hadn’t done an outfit post in a while; I love clothes almost as much as I love chocolate, but I just cannot get to grips with dicking about in front of the camera in public places, so I’m afraid it’s me, with the tripod, in the craft room again. (But you do get to see my vintage sewing stand-thingy in the background. Isn’t she pretty?!)
I’ve been loving midi skirts this summer; floaty block colours, bright florals and geometric Aztecs all get my vote – I’m not keen on showing too much leg, because in the words of the Husband, I look like I’m ‘wearing white leggings’. My legs have never ever tanned, not in primary school, not when I spent eighteen months in New Zealand and not now – I keep meaning to get some fake tan, but like most things, never get round to it. So in the meantime, I’l enjoy my love affair with the humble midi – this one is from Beyond Retro (my latest go-to shop for, well, everything), and is probably my favourite; it’s a great length, and even though the fabric has quite a hectic pattern, the neutral colours mean you can put it with a top that is equally loud.
The t-shirt is actually by one of my favourite creative people, Kate Bishop of Kroma; I first saw her work in The Aspex Gallery, and then met her at a local craft fair last year sometime – she makes great jewellery in pastel and neon shades with quirky little twists, and also sells prints and notebooks. My personal favourite is are the Polygon necklaces, which come in about a gazillion different colours, and with two different chain colours and lengths (how good is that?!).
The clogs are by Lotta from Stockholm, the bag is a recent charity shop find, and the tired face is courtesy of two rowdy kiddos and a sudden influx of work.
