In The Summer Sun...

Well It looks like my obsession with yellow (and pencil skirts) is still going strong!! Im putting it down to it being Summer here I just feel the need for everything to be sunny and bright!! Plus I love the clash of colours you can get.. along with blue I think purple is another perfect colour to throw in the mix..



I have had such a wonderful week so far after a pretty amazing weekend too.. I went to a baby shower on Sunday and it was so adorable.. lots of food and oohing and ahhhing and I managed to fit in a few things I had been hanging out to do like a little bit of sewing and writing so I was pretty happy with that.. I also went on a pretty nice date this week.. with a very lovely man.. who has perfect hair, style and manners!! Here I thought chivalry was dead and he was opening doors and pulling out seats.. it was amazing!! (Then again it doesn’t take much to impress me really. Just someone who can make me laugh does the trick)

I hit vintage gold this week and I practically had a heart attack in the op shop on my lunch break!! They had just put all their new stock out and I was grabbing pieces like crazy.. I found so many amazing things that I will be putting in the shop next week!! Including a vintage short lace wedding dress with matching bolero ahhh its so so beautiful!!!

I thought I would also mention that my friends over at Stallcart did an interview here and are having a pretty awesome deal for readers if you are looking to set up a website..check it out!!
So I hope your all having a fab week.. im off to get another latte XX

Hey Ally,
Congrats I think I'll be hitting the op shops today I feel lucky but that's not the reason for this comment I know it's not Music Monday but you should totally check out this amazing song on Triple J's unearthed website if you haven't already it's called Crow on a wire by Scott Mellis feat. Gossling, they've currently got the Mp3 up as a free download... AMAZING. Hope you enjoy.

Love C

This pop of yellow is so refreshing, especially in the winter! I love it! I love remixing vintage pieces in my every day outfits!

I love your outfit!
And guess what? I just got the giveaway package yesterday and I love it! Just wore the scarf today and started reading the Treasure Island just a moment ago. Thank you so much for the gift and all your efforts!
Have a great summer there, while we here in Finland try to enjoy the winter. Fortunately I have now the Treasure Island to read while waiting the summer to come. Anyway you're great and I love your blog! Thank you once again!

Yellow is such a fabulous color. It's so cheery and bright and livens up an outfit in the middle of winter. I love the deep plum pairing too! You look fantastic! Have a wonderful weekend. :)
