bobbi-brown-crushed-plum Firstly, thank you to everybody who left such thoughtful comments on my last post!  So encouraging to receive such kind, informative and helpful feedback; it really is appreciated. 🙂


Shirtdress: Coco Boo Loves
Cardigan: Next
Cap: Warehouse
Boots and Socks: Topshop
Bag:  Porteen Gear (Etsy)

baker-boy-hat Quiet Sunday car parks are designed specifically for blog photos right?  Again my mum and I nipped into town to run a few errands, and for a little shopping experiment – more on that later.  It would seem that I have no common sense whatsoever, as I believed that this sliver of a dress, loose cardigan and barely there fishnet tights would shield me from the wind.  Oh how wrong I was!  Although my neck was perfectly toasty, thanks to my handknit scarf (Haven by Kim Hargreaves).  I am glad that I knit so many accessories as an 11 year old 😉 portean-camera-bag I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to show this camera bag on here!  I’ve been using this Porteen Gear bag for a few years, and I still love the classy-but-practical leopard print design.  These handmade leather/fabric camera bags have three compartments inside, and available from Etsy.

fishnet-tights-topshop-boots Fishnet tights outline legs in black, which I think is really flattering!


rowan-coccoon-haven-scarf Counting down the days ’til half term now!  Physics coursework was ticked off the list this week, so only textiles  left now.  With creative subjects I find it really difficult to just ‘get it done’; I’m such a perfectionist that I can spend hours doing a few sketches!  Are you a speedy sketcher or do you deliberate over shades of blue pencil crayons like me?

    I’m totally on the same page regarding creative work. It has to exactly perfect, which understandably takes forever.

    Your shirtdress is pretty. You’re so lovely in it.

      It really is so difficult to decide when you’ve done enough! Creative work is never finished. Thanks for commenting!

    Its really fun and special to model the things you made & made for you ‘back then’. I love, love, love that scarf ! If there’s anything on my pattern list you’d like to knit, I will send it gratis to you ! 🙂

      I don’t think I’ll ever stop wearing them! I’d love to see the ruffles scarf knit up! Same offer to you too – If you’d like any of my patterns then let me know!
