Feeling Springlike

Friday, 19 March 2010


It was sunny this morning, honestly it was. Ok, so it then descended into wind and lashing rain by about 5pm but at least I was dressed for the weather for half of the day! This is probably the girliest outfit I have worn since I was about 6 years old but you know what? I love it. There's something about cute pumps and funky tights (I am seriously smitten with these cornflower blue beauties) and a dress with a double layer hem that makes me want to twirl round in the sunshine smiling at random strangers. I didn't actually take it that far as I'm way too shy for that kind of behaviour but the spirit was there.





Dress & cardi - Primark
Tights - Dorothy Perkins

Pumps - Schuh
Bangle - Shared Earth
Locket - allthingsyummy @ etsy



Some of the little touches that perk my mood up just to look at them:









And just because I'm in a whimsical mood and it's Friday, a couple of pictures of me pratting around at work today. In my defence, we have an Alice in Wonderland event on this weekend and my office ended up full of hats and costumes. Who could resist donning a silly hat?


I really don't like profile shots of my face, bleurgh

  1. I love this outfit! The shoes are gorgeous and I loved Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, although if you say the book is better then I'll have to find it and read it. Thanks for the tip and I shall also check out the other book you mentioned too. xxx

  2. What a fabulous outfit, Alex. The print on the dress, blue tights, pretty pumps and perfect jewellery = Divine. The hats are so fun but I'm in awe of the view from your office window, where on earth do you work, it looks like heaven?
