The world spins so fast, that I might fly off!

How surprisingly sparkley these pix look!
We've been blessed with a surprising week of mild temperatures; very suspicious for this time of year!
( I am quite sure we'll be slam dunked with some hideous snow or something ghastly as retribution!)
And what are you going to do, but get out and enjoy it?!
Of course, I managed to give myself a fecking headcold; will I ever learn?!

I have a slightly different set of these pix here, taken from a different angle, with direct light!
Amazing what a difference it makes!
(I love the new Flickr layout, incidentally!)

I am wearing:
Frock-it's for square dancing! Haven't done that since I was about 12! Got it via Etsy! Had to alter the neckline quite a bit, though.
Cardi-opshopped, or Trade Me, can't remember which
Coat-opshopped, would have been part of a 60's/70's pants suit, I reckon
Tights-opshopped last week, I'm rather into the pattern
Shoes-Trade Me
Scarf (in hair)-opshopped
60's vanity case-opshopped
Chain necklace-from my gorgeous Vix
Necklace-created by moi
Hoop earrings-retail

Gawd I miss the warmth!
Am planning on some Summery picnics this coming season!
I do hope you lovelies are planning on some picnics NOW, so I can live vicariously through you!

O, we went to see The Great Gatsby, and it was lovely!
I really can't bear Leonardo di Caprio, nor Toby MacGuire, but it was splendid besides, and I love that Carey Mulligan, and Baz Luhrmann gives me the horn!

You do blue so well Helga! I do like the idea of sunshine and picnics! Every morning when I wake up I remind myself that summer is getting closer!!

If you do fall off I promise I'll be there to catch ya!

I am loving these new pics looks like summer forest there. I love you more in purple gingham dress. I want more Patio/square dance frocks!

You're looking rather reminiscent of Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz my dear. Who doesn't like a bit of Dorothy. The pics are lovely.

Only picnics happening here at present are those on the loungeroom floor with kids. X

Lynn Dylan said...

Love love love the lighting. You do indeed wear blue well dear Helga. I will have to check out the new format you speak of. xoxo Lynn

no picnic here, it's pouring down rain. Homemade veggie burgers will be cooked indoors. Maybe by dark it will clear up and we can go over to the parking deck and watch the fireworks.

Val Sparkle said...

We're enjoying lovely weather for Fourth of July picnics all over today. So much nicer today than the last week when it was about 35C and humid! Impossible to look nice and enjoy anything outside of air conditioning.

You look mah-velous, as usual. I love the matching length of your coat and dress - such a perfect detail!

Vintage Coconut said...

Loving all the purple especially your gingham dress. And the pics turned out Gorgeous! Whoever is taking care of that grass is doing a good job!

It's impossible to be outside today--hot and horribly humid!

You look so lovely and sparkly in your blue gingham!!
Take care of yourself!

WendyB said...

I want those first four photos to be turned into a gif!

Penny-Rose said...

Ah Helga, you are a ray of sunshine in my life. The colours of your outfit are so perfect against the green of the grass. I too have got another head-cold dammit, so I do hope the weekend weather is lovely so we all get out in the fresh air and the sunshine. Here's hoping :-)

Have a great weekend xx

You have so many coats so you need a few weeks of winter. I would feel sorry fot your coats otherwise.

Indigo Violet said...

I can't bear Leonardo either! Did you notice that in one scene he was dripping wet and the next minute he was mysteriously dry? I try to like Tobey Maguire but just can't. Carey Mulligan on the other hand was perfect.

Melanie said...

You are Helgalating straight out of those photos. It's unnatural! Do it some more. You are the fairytale mystery woman with a case full of elixirs and sweets and makeup of course. You won't fly off the world because you're the one making it spin, dear.

señora Allnut said...

fabulously sparkling blue!, and that rays of sun creating a halo arond you!, wouuuuu
love that pretty gingham dress and your chevron grey tights!, you're a lovely blue dream!!

Sarah DeLicatease said...

Awesome look! I love the dress how it peeks out under the cardi and the coat! And your purse is the cutest thing. I haven't seen Great Gatsby yet.. I think I should read the book first :D

Brooke F said...

Such dreamy pix! You look a vision as usual and I am panting over that square dancing dress!

bonsaimum said...

You look fantastic as always. Toby Maguire doesn't do much for me either.

Sara said...

Oh, the tights! And I saw the pictures on Flickr - beautiful. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I love that royal blue on you! ~ LittleMissPlump (Sara)

Sara said...

Hang on- it's not Royal bluem it's more purpley! My apologies. Do I need glasses...? ~LittleMissPlump (Sara)

Retro Chick said...

The light is amazing in those photos! It looks like unicorns should be frolicking behind you.

freckleface said...

You look like a character from a fairytale. Such beautiful photos, all the colours are so saturated. Q says it looks like England. I think it looks like somewhere where Johnny Depp would pop up. Hope you feel a bit better soon you sweet lovely creature. xxxx

Miss Magpie said...

Look at you a glorious purple pixie! Fab pics and there's a dress I would steal from your wardrobe.......

Amber of Butane Anvil said...

This colour is tremendous on spectacular you in the slanting sun. SOrry about the stoopid head cold - surely G is tending you well, feel better soon! xo

Forest City Fashionista said...

You look like you've been beamed down in the middle of that green space by a spaceship from the planet populated only by Fabularsely Stylish DAmes! So very sassy in your anything-but-square frock. I want to see a twirl!

Emalina said...

Looking so beautiful in purple! Sorry to read about the head cold, get well soon sweetie.

Janice Tutone said...

Spectacular colors in the photos! Get well soon! XXX

Trees said...

Beautiful photos - you make that square dancing dress look divine. I wish we had some sunshine up here too and I really, really want to have a picnic and laze around in the sun!

Pull Your Socks Up! said...

Oh go on, give us a twirl love! I adore blue on you so much, especially in that light and against the beautiful green of CC in winter. Poo to a head cold!! Hooray for your glorious presence - I'm convinced the crowds part for you in the streets to allow you through, as you are a superstar and it's time a fabulous movie was made about YOU!!!! xoxoxoxox

Holy arsemonkey, my love, you know I LOVE a good bit of matchy matchy - and here's you The Queen Of MatchyMatchytown!!!

DIVINE square dancing frock (your modifications are perfect, of course) and the new tights are exquisite... and I do love the twinkly, lovely, lush green and purple combo.

Sit on my face.

Love you more than ice cream!

Miss Simmonds Says said...

That blue is ethereal in that warm winter light, you're the matchy matchy flange fairy. I love the square dance frock! Isn't it perfection? You always look amazing in blue. The scarf is really pretty and shockingly understated - your locks look beautiful too. Will have a picernic on the beach for you ASAP! XXXX
