Fix her crown

Friday, May 11, 2018

Today's post has been inspired by Lexi of Welcome to Lexiland who is hosting the Fabulous Flower Crown Festival on her instagram feed here. #fixhercrown is where you'll find lots of lovelies wearing crowns of every kind, all of them gorgeous.


Sasha kindly let me borrow this pretty floral headband which I wore as a crown. The morning's photo shoot took on a more bizarre look than usual! 


Lexi quotes the phrase “Be the woman who fixes another woman’s crown without telling the world it was crooked.” She continues in her own words, "How wonderfully women can raise each other up when we put our minds to it. What a difference we can make!" 


The festival is representative of the rich seam of friendship that I have tapped into on Instagram thanks to joining the world of blogging. There are women featuring every aspect of my life, from motherhood and health issues, to yoga and sea swimming, fashion and shopping, island life, the passion for my homeland of Scotland, the big outdoors and the spectacle that is Mother Nature, be it an outrageously beautiful sunset or the breathtaking view from a wild mountain range - I've made connections through our common bond. This sisterhood is supporting each other, acting as cheerleader during times of celebration as well as offering solace during the tougher moments when we feel downhearted. These women have enriched my day to day life with tiny hearts, encouraging comments, honest opinions and rave reviews. Not many are face to face friends, but the miles and time zones matter not a jot when their authenticity shines through as they turn up time and again to add their thoughts to my life in squares. See my Instagram feed here.


Today's outfit was of course chosen to match my crown. The skirt is preloved, by Jaeger, the blouse new, from TK Maxx (by Jovonna), belt is from eBay, mules are from TK Maxx (by Shellys London) and sunnies are by Quay Australia.


The necklace was a gift and rings are preloved.



You can't really go wrong with bit of razzle dazzle on a sunny day, can you?


I fully intended to take the crown off before Polly and I did the main photo shoot, but after the head shots, some ladies appeared, we chatted for a moment and then we continued. It was only when I walked back into the gallery and caught sight of myself that I had to laugh. I suppose my customers are just used to me being a bit flamboyant in my dressing!


I'll be back on Sunday and in the meantime I hope you have a super weekend!

    1. Thanks Vronni! I immediately fell in love with these mules when I found them in Harrogate last month. The fact is, they are half a size too small, but I've managed to stretch them enough to wear them all day, hurrah!

      Social media is so time consuming! I dodge from one to the other and no matter what I never feel as is if I've ever caught up.

      Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Great post, Anna. Lovely crown, my dear, but your crowning glory is your amazing spirit!
    I dipped my toe in the IG water to access others' accounts easily but never could immerse myself in it. I don't post anything but it sounds like you're getting all the right things from it, the things it was created for. Have fun this weekend,hugs x.

    1. Aw, thanks so much Mary. I think a pma is all that's required to gain enjoyment out of most forms of social media. I try to keep a balanced viewpoint on it all and know that there can be a lot of negativity if you are too opinionated.

      Enjoy your weekend!

  6. I've worn a floral crown before, and they are so fun! I like this bright iteration of you, Anna - from your crown to that dazzlingly white ruffled (ruffles!!) blouse, to that fun patterned skirt, to those razzle-dazzle-'em shoes. Lovely!
