Showers and flowers

It seems impossible for me to write up a post without referring to the weather. A visitor recently pointed out how their focus whilst here on holiday was all about the tides and the weather. We are indeed ruled by the tides and the need to be in the right place (quay) at the right time to catch the vital mode of transport, the boats. And being stranded without a car also focuses the mind on the weather as a whole day out can be blighted by forgetting to bring an extra layer of clothing. So you'll understand the influence with today's outfit. Showers means in this case a layer in the form of this flowered jacket from Zara (via a charity shop) which has been well worth the pittance I payed for it. Endlessly versatile in both colourway and pattern I keep leafing it into my daily outfits with ne'er an apology.









Those in the know will tell you to always keep an eye on the boats. The boats indicate which direction those grey rain clouds are coming from - they always face into the wind giving us a heads up as to what's in the pipeline. This vantage point today lets us see the weather ahead. Talking of which, I'd better get inside before that next shower arrives!

Today's outfit features the jacket from Zara (similar), skirt from H&M (similar), shoes from New Look (similar), tee shirt from M&S and handbag from a charity shop. Sunglasses are from Quay Australia, and all the silver jewellery is charity shopped. The fab orange nail polish is by Rita Ora at Rimmel in Tangerine Tent.

  1. This is such a cool outfit.Love the details with jacket. And there is something wonderful about the tide, right? I was wondering: you need to do a lot of online shopping, right? So your delivery man is a busy person? Parcels get to you by ferry? Have a great weekend. Sabina

    1. The tide comes in, the tide goes out, ad infinitum. The whole thing is the daily cycle we abide by, and yes the mail and parcels come across by boat depending on the tide. As for my clothes shopping, I'm much more of a thrift shopper rather than online. The unique rather than the mass produced is what I search for. Thanks so much for your comments x

    1. So lovely to hear from you again Dan. It's impossible not to take the weather into account when you live on a windswept island like this. You can always tell how windy it was by how crazy my hair looks! Thanks for your comments, very kind x
