Black and Red By The Riverside

A stroll by the riverside wearing black and red was the order of the day. Black and red have long
been a favourite combination of mine so when I spied this top at a local recycled clothing store I
knew it had to mine.

The top is mesh with the interesting lady in red velvet and was purchased by its previous owner
in Canada , the label is Donna .Glad the previous owner let it go as I really love it and it is the
perfect companion for my Moyuru skort and last years black wedges.

When I started my stroll the day was cool so I had on my Caroline Moore leather crop jacket . To complete the outfit I added a collection of red and black bangles , a red necklace and black sunnies.

Finishing today's post with these Christmas lilies in my garden, they smell divine .
Sending all my best wishes for a safe and happy Christmas.

Floral Overload

Nature had produced a floral overload in my front garden with this pretty pink rose , Cherub, really
outdoing herself this year. Not to be outdone by Mother Nature I donned my floral wrap from Ted
Baker that reminds me of an olde world painting with its black background and pot pourri of blooms.

I paired the wrap with a plum coloured skirt , a recycle gem that has made a previous appearance
in Winter guise, and my grey cardigan with its fringe edges from Sabatini. I am enjoying rediscovering my cardigans again after not wearing them for a few seasons, so glad I don't part with
old favourites just because they haven't been worn continually.My orange, pink and mauve sandals
have seen several Summers and are the ultimate in comfort.

The cream rose is named Seafoam and is one of a pair of weeping roses that I planted many years
ago . Today it is a wonderful backdrop for my grey hat that I purchased from a milliner at a pop up
Makers Market in Paris.

Minimial - White Shirt and a Boater

Summer has finally arrived in my part of the world and as I often do I turned to a white shirt and
a broad brimmed hat. My white shirt is a new one purchased in Melbourne on my recent visit.
I was rather pleased when I found it as I have been on the search for the perfect white shirt for
quite some time. You really wouldn't have thought it would be so tricky to find but it was or am I
just too fussy . I did have requirements , it must cotton , made in Australia and have a little pizazz.
This one is made in Melbourne by Tiffany Treleor and is pure cotton and I love its style.

To complete the look for my first Summer post I added a black Moyuru skirt and my new straw
boater, another item I had been on the lookout for and came across last week at Yeltour, a local

Round black sunglasses by Preen and some black earrings top off my minimal look.
Speaking of minimal , I have finally given my blog a makeover . After much deliberation
and playing with templates I choose this one , Minum, from Pigdig in the U.K. I felt it
reflected my own aesthetic perfectly.I had read nothing but good reports about Pigdig and I
too found them to be extremely helpful , they even installed it for me , a bonus for technically
challenged me. Thank you to Catherine at Not Dressed as Lamb as it was on her blog that I
first read about this company.

My first pair of Trippen Happy sandals.Their name suits them perfectly , so comfortable and a delight to wear .I am indeed one happy girl.

Sometimes, I do take my lead from my garden, this gorgeous black and white oriental poppy was
in full bloom this week.
