Back to nature

This outfit really brings a smile to my face. The top and trousers look as if they were made to match and yet were lucky finds in the Exmouth charity shops. Perhaps they had come from the same source, who knows? But as far as I'm concerned it would be an outrage to split them up. Where would Ant be without Dec or Morcambe without Wise? Well these are just as much fun to me. It almost looks like these beautiful butterflies are being drawn south to the nectar of the floral trousers. The whole thing is whimsical, romantic and a dream to wear. And how wonderful to be still on the beach in the morning sunshine at the end of September. These islands are still basking in the late Indian summer sun and we are all pretty happy bunnies to be blessed with this bonus bit of weather in the UK.

Continuing with the whimsical theme I felt had to add my Jessica necklace which ties in so well with its delicate print Liberty skirt. And it was a no-brainer to add the yellow watch and these rings to this ensemble to keep everything keyed in to the same colourway. The finishing touch are these bright blue kitten heels which give a bit of class to the outfit. It would have been so easy to go to my default setting and find a pair of brogues to complement this palette, but sometimes you've got to push out of your comfort zone. The result was worth it. Don't you think?

Trousers: Topshop (charity shop). Top: New Look (charity shop). Necklace: Charlie Dodge. Shoes: charity shop. Watch: charity shop. Yellow ring: Martin James. Blue ring: charity shop. Rose gold bangle: Kate Spade New York. Sunglasses: Quay Australia. 



  1. What a glorious celebration of nature, Anna, in your outfit and quite right to keep them together. I love how you've picked out the striking cobalt blue in the trousers and top, to have as your shoe colour.
    Hasn't the Indian summer been a real blessing? A last hurrah!

    1. Thank you! I'm having a bit of a heels thing at the moment and these seemed to be perfect. I have a feeling that it might be brogue weather soon!
