Got the top pulled down, radio on, baby



We spent a very languid, lazy, perfectly Summery day with our lovely Ralph before he jetted off back to Auckland, trying out some new cocktails.
He came down for the annual New Years Eve
 celebrations out in the country, then stayed a few days.....blurry days, but lovely!


Frock-70's, from travelling Vix
Turban-60's, opshopped
Shoes-Trade Me
Sunglasses-Etsy
Gold beads-opshopped
Indian necklace-G and his Mama bought it for me in Singapore a couple of years back
Locket-a market
Cat pendant-opshopped


The cats frolicked and flopped about for our amusement, the sky gleamed a most splendid shade of blue, we lazed about like seals....
O, I do love Summer, but I do miss wearing tights-does that make me sound ungrateful?!
Hope not, if there's one thing I have in spades, it's gratitude!

What an elegantly funky afternoon in the sun, and with yummy cocktails no less!! I'm jealous over here!

Krista said...

These pictures are like the best cocktail ever, they just ooze happiness and carefree days! You are looking extra saucy and sexy in that curve hugging frock and spectacular turban. These have to be some of my favorite photos of the crew yet. Cheers to you, G and Ralph I wish I was there, seeing you on the grass in the sunshine reminds me of our time together hanging out in my backyard. I miss you sweetie and I love you a lot. please tell G he is missed to!
Wishing for summer but enjoying it through you!

I'm Adoring that Turban! I wore Turbans throughout the 70's and I still have a Passion for them! Thanks for stopping by for a New Year's Blog visit. Blogger still misbehaving... the System, not me... well... maybe me too! *Winks*

Happy New Year from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

You look HOT in that dress!! I would die of nervousness wearing that almost all white dress (I am notoriously messy) AND you are laying on grass!!! Grass stains!! You are fearless.
I straight up love the red, blue, and yellow paint on the porch or room behind you. Soooo cool!

Helen Le Caplain said...

LOVE that turban - the colour, shape and style of it look fab on you!

I must say your News Year Day differed somewhat to mine which involved sitting indoors in cold and windy Britain...

However we seem to have the drinking down to a t!

Lounging in the sun - bliss! Its been warm enough in Wellington for me to NOT wear tights - I even have photographic evidence!! Love your hat and you long hair looks so lovely xoxo

Hannah said...

What sumptuous surroundings you are in my dear, you look ravishing. You have the best weekends, food and drink and friends and cats what's not to love? That hat is rocking my world. xxx

Ivy Black said...

pastcaring said...

What great photos, they sum up the vibe perfectly! Lazy-lounging cat-tickling cocktail-slurping boob-fondling fabularsity!
That frock is doing your magnificent body ALL sorts of favours, no wonder G is looking a very happy man! Good to see Ralph again too.
And your hair coiling and snaking under that turban hat, ooh you are a sexy woman!
Cheers, m'dears! xxxx

Good times! Those cocktails look very yummy and so do you!

edie pop said...

Fabulous turban and frock and what a sumptuous hair!I'd love to enjoy the funky cocktail outdoor and I reveal you a secret: I do use tights in the summer,maybe because I'm not usually very tanned and compared to the other Italian girls I look like Snowhite's zombie sister!
Love xxxxx

delia hornbook said...

I would so love to be sharing that wonderful warmth and sunshine with you all. You look so relaxed and chilled out the best kind. Loving your turban you look beautiful. dee xx

So much quality of life in a single post. Boobs, drinks, hats, love, cats and pure beauty!

Louise Mc said...

Well helllooooo glamourpuss! What a glorious confection that hat is, and that dress is so flattering too. Divine! I would happily swap my tights right now for sunshine and cocktails. That looks like a perfect day to me darling Helga. Xx

Melanie said...

Laaanguid, absoluuuuutely laaaanguid, darling. Pass me another drink. Everything is laaanguid. I would certain enjoy getting sloshed on those green drinks. Sprawled on the grass I would be tempted to drink my drink like a cat from a bowl. Fantastic turban.

Amber of Butane Anvil said...

Ooh, splendor in the grass, lounging in the sun! Hi kitties!!! I just love your sherbet-turban and mass of hair!

Miss Simmonds Says said...

I really want some heels like those. I miss lounging in lush green grass too. Humpers looks pleased to see you lounging too, cats love it when you lie in the garden. you look wonderful, divine in all those peach melba colours. The turban is the most fabulous thing ever! xxxx

Perdita said...

Oooooh so jel of all that wonderful sunshine and your fabuloso hat! Sigh. We've just got grey skies here (my colleague called them 'sexy skies' as they've 50 shades of grey haha).

MistressCatgirl said...

You look lovely in a turban. Lovely overall. We need to add some nice drinking glasses to our collection. I tend not to drink as much when it's cold. I guess I'm not in the mood for it.

Franca said...

so fun! I love your turban!

Annie said...

I love these summery pics. They are brightening up our dull days here.
That's a great dress for lounging, and I trust that's a Rude Cosmopolitan you and G are enjoying! xxx

freckleface said...

Look at you lounging on the grass like a saucy tiger! That pic of your pusscat just about to give you a nice wet nose kiss is so sweet. Like everyone else I adore the turban, it really is the bees knees! xxx

lucy joy said...

That's the way to do it! I'll add my approval to the list of followers compliments regarding the fit of your frock - all the right curves lady.
Cocktails, frolicking, turbans, G looking like Lord Muck, get the crotch-less tights on!
You really are brightening the days of so many. I see a collage of brown, grey and black every day. The sky, river, people and places. You never disappoint.

Renia said...

You look so beautiful! I love those necklases! Kisses x x x x

menopauselsupermodel said...

Oh my CABBAGES! *sorry I am still stuck on Clare's post and your bosom reminded me of the cabbages. *LOL*
Fabulous frock and turban you look divine.

Forest City Fashionista said...

I am soo envious of you being able to lounge on the green grass, looking at blue sky! We've had nothing but snow and grey skies here. I am a little in love with that turban with the rosettes.

Val Sparkle said...

It all looks bloody marvelous, from the drinks to the cat to the sunglasses. But, oh, the hat is really stunning! You wear it all with such finesse, even when rolling in the grass!

princesspincurls.com said...

I have to say that your dress is great...but that turban is fab! Looks like you had all the makings of a perfect summer afternoon. xx Shauna

two squirrels said...

Oh cocktails darling in the backyard with the poookies and a fabulous turban!!!! Simply perfect on a summers day.
Yes I to think of tights in summer and wish for them. My legs look like white tights most of the time anyway, tee hee!!!!
Love V

bonsaimum said...

What a turban. Bellissimo!!!

CityScape Skybaby said...

I agree with Lucy, you brighten up our grey days Helga and let us dream of sunny days lying on the grass drinking cocktails and cuddling up to kitties. You really suit a turban too, you look so glamorous in these pics. xx

Marla Robinson said...

What can I say that hasn't already been said. I love this. I want that cat locket you are wearing and I own a dog! Everything you wear is so original and unique. You look great.

Lily said...

*Gasp*! A turban?!?!?! How exciting! I adore nothing more than a turban. I bought a winter one in Vienna. It is glorious and I look forward to winter so I can wear it.

You look amazing, as always.

I *might* be back. I have a proper job now, which is harrowing and interferes with my personal time, which I dislike immensely. I will try my best!

Sacramento Amate said...
