Swishy Swishy

Hey Peeps!

I haven't done an outfit post in a while because, as I mentioned yesterday, all my clothes and shoes are pretty much still packed in boxes! I've been living in my flat boots and a few dresses that I packed before moving thinking that it would only take a couple of weeks to get the bedroom sorted. Not so much. DIY always takes longer than you think it will.....or so I'm told. Thankfully the finish line is in sight and it's been making me think about having yet another massive wardrobe clear out when I can finally unpack everything.

Going through my pictures I found this outfit that I never got around to posting.....
Jacket: H&M
Cardigan: Kookai
Jumper: Miss Selfridge
Skirt: H&M
Boots: Office

....I wore it when Miss S took us to see Gravity last year! Not sure why I didn't post it then but I'm glad I found it, I love this colour combination (the jacket is a chocolate brown colour like the boots...honest) and the swishy swishy skirt. I also love the background....all those shoes, I can not wait to get them unpacked! I'm trying to find a background I like here for when I start taking outfits pictures again, so far the view over the sea is winning although that will be dependant on weather....we'll see.

Birthday Wish List

Hey Peeps!

It's been a while. Again. I've been busy moving house. Again. Thankfully I'm nearly unpacked, very very nearly fully unpacked. The only things left in boxes are my shoes and clothes which is only slightly driving me up the wall. Fingers crossed that will all change soon as the master bedroom decoration is nearly finished and I can't wait! Mostly so I can unpack but also because I'm really excited to see it all come together...but that's another post.

Today I thought I would share a few things I have on my wish list......oh and in other news it's my birthday in a few weeks time. Welllllllllllll apparently I'm hard to buy for!
Minoru Jacket / Robson Coat
I've had my eye on both these patterns for a while now and I know exactly what fabric I want to make them up in. My lovely Parentals very kindly took me virtual shopping (FaceTime is awesome) in their local Saudi "Emporium" which was like an Aladin's cave of wonderfulness. The magpie in me was very very happy indeed! We managed to pick out everything I need for the Minoru except for the wool (funnily enough they don't sell many wool fabrics in Middle Eastern countries, something to do with the weather) but I've found something perfect from Truro Fabrics. Whilst browsing the Truro Fabrics website for gorgeous wool I may have accidentally stumbled across a few other gems....
Red Dots / Green Ovals
Turquoise Floral / Bright Splashes
......aren't they swoon worthy? I have a pretty good idea of what I would like to make with these too meaning I know that I need 3.5 metres if anyone was feeling particularly generous. Unfortunately Truro Fabrics don't sell gift vouchers but I believe Paypal do so that's another option. So there you go lovely friends and family peeps I hope that helps!
