Must be time for a guitar solo

We had a wee walkie in the Botanic Gardens yesterday afternoon!
Everytime we go there I say 'oooo, it's so lovely, we must come more often"...and then it's ages until we go there again and I repeat myself.
It was a splendidly hot day, and being under the canopy of trees was just perfect.

Jacket-part of a 60's 2 piece, opshopped well over 10 years ago!
Vanity case-60's, Trade Me
Tights-retail
Shoes-Trade Me
Sunglasses-opshopped
Hairflower-made it myself, it's a bit shoddy!
Necklace-60's, opshopped
Earrings-from the wonderful Jen

G wore himself out gleefully asking all and sundry if they had noticed my globes.
I ask you.
Justine has given me a lovely mirror, and I thought I would try and photograph it for you on Sunday.
 Miss Pee Pee wanted to show it off Sale of the Century style for you.
She's quite talented.
Look at her darling little face!

Hurrah for all you lovely wenches who want to join me in old lady anarchy!!!
Yeaaaaagh, we'll show 'em!
I already am the person your parents warned you about; it's only right that I should develop and embellish on that!
I'm feeling rather inspired by Anna Piaggi of late, and have added her to my list of old age style icons.
(No one could ever push Mrs Slocombe off the top of that list, fyi)
There's hope for all of us!
Just one eccentricity is a fine thing, but why not go the whole hog and have several?!
Mmmm, blow up lavender lips!
On her head!!!
Frigging genius.

Does anyone else like doing acapella guitar solos?!
Or am I the only one?

Miss Tallulah Porkchop said...

Awwww... Miss Pee Pee stole the post.

trashsparkle said...

Can't believe your jacket and dress were bought separately - the green in both of them looks so, well, matching. Another splendid colour riot! x

delia hornbook said...

Kitty said...

I'm confused- you've got stockings and long sleeves on, and it's hot. Are you sure? LOL!! Awesome colour combos.xx.

Miss Claire said...

Oh you delightful, sea-toned woman!!! I love your outfit! The gardens look pretty...I'm the same! I'm in walking distance of some beautiful gardens and rarely get there. I, too, am quite partial to the odd "weow-weoeooew" air guitar solo (often in the car)!

Mrs Munster said...

Oh the colours. Helga -the master of mixing them!

two squirrels said...

Oh Miss pee pee you are so very cute!!!!!
Miss Helga snap we both had little blue shoes on yesterday, yay to blue shoes!!!!!
Love the blue and green outfit, you look so very pretty.
lavender lady looks quite mad, in the best kind of way!
Love Vanessa

Miss Peregrin said...

Anna Piaggi looks like a glorious old dear! You've got to love the blow-up lavendar lips - they'd go with anything.

I adore your gorgeous dress & jacket combination. Perfection!

pastcaring said...

Wow, those sea blue/green colours are so beautiful, made even more stunning with the flash of purple leg! You look totally gorgeous in the dappled light, you woodland goddess!
Look at Miss Pee Pee, hogging the photos. Well, she does rival her mama in the beauty stakes so she deserves the glory.
Blow-up lavender lips, here we come!
PS. Nope, just you on the acapella guitar solos. Can you film one and show us? xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Rose&Bird said...

Haven't indulged in acapella air guitar myself, but you go for it if it makes you happy!!
Do love your bright colours. What a beautiful day it is there in Christchurch - I wish I could join you. Must invent that teleporting machine!

Loo xx from Jumbles and Pompoms said...

Love the blue, green and purple combo. In fact, I need those tights. The blow-up lavender lips would top off your outfit a treat.

Vix said...

That is one fabulous outfit, I adore the jacket and dress with those granny beads and bright tights, forget the Botantical Gardens, you are a wonder of nature!
Miss Pee-Pee loves that pretty mirror, you'll have to leave it propped up against the wall so she admire her button nose and frisky whiskers.
I'm going to have to Google Anna Piaggi but anyone with a bottle of booze on their desk is a friend of mine.
Love you!

galileo got it wrong: our planetary system is clearly helgacentric, not heliocentric!

Krista said...

Holy sea of green and blue this is a shocker! I love this dress, the pattern the colors you are beautiful! The globes are sweet! Hi Pee Pee. Look out Anna Piaggi!!!

lasophia said...

Globe earrings! OMG WOW. Love them. We used to have a botanic gardens on campus when I was in college so I would take all my friends there like it was some sort of treat haha. It was cool but only when it was the season, a relaxing place nonetheless.
