Cream and Red Play in the Park

 A sunny albeit windy Spring morning was the perfect opportunity to break out a lighter outfit for a visit to the City Park , which is looking quite a picture with all the Spring blooms.

 After my darker colours of Winter it was fun to don my old favourite cream and pair it with red. The asymetrical red spot and cream top by Alembika is a new seasons purchase and I know when our weather finally warms up will have many outings.
 The top is paired with drop crotch pants by Western Australian designer Megan Salmon and a jacket from Ted Baker , an old favourite of mine. I love a jacket and have amassed quite a collection over time, with our unpredictable weather they always come in handy.
 A taupe bag , cream tassel brogues , red circle earrings, Chanel sunnies in taupe and black and a bangle stack in cream and red complete todays outfit.

A Berry Start To Spring


Spring has arrived in my part of the world heralding the arrival of the first magnolia blooms on my tree , an event that never ceases to amaze me as the bare branches become a confection of pink blooms.



To celebrate the arrival of Spring my colour of the day was berry or grape depending on your point of view. I am not one to embrace the supposed colours of the season as dictated by "experts", as far as colour goes I simply choose to wear what I like and what suits me.
Spring also comes with uncertain weather , today went from sunshine to rain to hail and then back to sunshine , thus a change of location mid photo session today from the garden to the industrial site.

 
Both of today's berry pieces are from Return to Splendour , a local consignment store. The skirt is from Kokomorino and the jacket from Bec and Bridge , Australian designers, I love the blanket stitch edging on this little jacket, takes me back to school sewing classes.
Finishing touches are a black knit beret , a double string necklace that I have had for many years, sunnies from Karen Walker , a multi- colour bangle and a wide belt from Crochetta . I am enjoying rediscovering my belt collection, goes to prove never part with anything , its time will come again.
