19.03 non floral

Happy Friday! We made it…congratulations πŸ™‚
Who has exciting plans for this weekend? Not me, haha, though I have my last day off of work for a while tomorrow so I must think up something to do, if only a trip to the local farmer’s market and craft market.

Shocker…I’m not wearing florals today! This dress is an ebay win from this week, a complete last minute impulse bid that worked out perfectly. It’s by Happie Loves It and a gorgeous satiny material.



I teamed it with my jersey blazer to make a change from cardigans..hurrah for the weather becoming just about warm enough to break away from knit wear!



The pattern on the dress has a nautical feel to it, so I accessorised with this gorgeous brooch made by a dear friend of mine…



Well, I’m off to get ready to run some errands, have a great day

  1. Gorgeous dress and bang on the nautical theme.

    I’ve got some weekend plans, jumble sale tomorrow and then catching the train to my mums and coming back monday.

    Have a good one daisy xx

  2. Lovely. Just lovely. I like how you’ve done nautical so subtly and the purple tights add an interesting twist.
    I bought a very similar jacket to that in the boot sale on Sunday, I really should get it washed and ironed so I can wear it but have been too lazy. It looks so good on you that has inspired me to take action.

    p.s did you know Marmite do cereal bars? they are delish!! got one free in the post the other day

  6. Love the print so much!

    btw – I didn’t realise until a week or two ago that you were ill, your last few posts must have been a little more revealing or something…
    anyway I hope your on your way back to health and keep blogging, as it seems like a reasonably construction passion to pursue while your trying to get better πŸ™‚
