I love clothes, I really do and I have a lot. I treat them well but in return, I like them to work hard for me, to be versatile and to be worn in different ways at different times of the year.
In a recent post, I styled this floral print satin skirt with a short sleeved black Bardot top, sheer tights and black bow shoes and it looked a little more formal than it does here when styled with a long sleeved top, opaque tights and ankle boots.
It was for a Mother’s day lunch at my parents’ home on Sunday that I wore this outfit, (the fence and ivy in their garden making a nice change from a brick wall, though I did sink somewhat) and it felt perfect for the occasion.
The Mummy necklace was a Mother’s Day gift from my children several years ago. I adore it and wear it often.
These days, they each have their own current account with a debit card and love nothing more than ordering online. My daughter chose a selection of teabags, make-up and chocolate for me, which she presented beautifully in a gift box, while my son ordered a scented candle and had it delivered to himself, having assumed the title of “Lord”. He went on to tell me told me that he couldn’t decide between that or Admiral.
I was touched beyond belief that both had put so much time and effort into their gifts and I treasure such happy times with my family.
My rose gold wrap bracelet is from my own collection at Lizzy O and is also available in silver. It is super sparkly, something which is hard to capture even in the clearest of photographs.
And from the beautiful flowers on my skirt…
…To these sublime snowdrops in the garden, it was a perfect and beautiful day.
