My Summer Beauty..

IMG_4330

 

This was a purchase from my vintage wander to Stoke Newington..and I love it.  It hasn’t made the holiday packing cut purely on the basis the material is quite heavy, which means it holds it shape wonderfully..and is perfect for those cool English summer evenings.  I wear it with a pair of wedges, my vintage Mulberry bag and a big smile….puurrrrfick!

Liberty’s, lushness and London x

I am a great believer in feeding the visual mind so I make little forays into London whenever I can, which lets face it, isn’t exactly a hardship…one of my favourite haunts is the lovely Liberty’s…

A temptation trove of delights and beautiful displays.
