I have never been so gaggingly in need of a holiday!
We're off this Friday to Indonesia, and we'll see you lovelies next month....it's entirely possible that I may come back with a tan, but what I most want to come back with is a smile on my face and a more relaxed attitude.......

Do all the  things I wouldn't do whilst I'm away, won't you?!
(and a few that I would!)

The way your blog loads on my computer I see the post title, and then there's a few seconds lag before the photos show up. It is the very best sort of anticipation waiting to see what beautiful outfit you've put together-and today a two-fer! Most excellent.

Have a lovely holiday. I can't wait to see what you bring back (fabric? That's the usual souvenir from Indonesia, right?).

Gosh, I really like those coats.

Beth Waltz said...

The rose coat is charming, worn with those be-bowed shoes!

Bon voyage! Do eat lots of intriguing Indonesian treats -- and bring back pix and recipes!

You are totally smashing, as ever, in both blue/gold and raspberry/chartreuse, and your affection for the dear green scarf is my favourite. If only we had such as you lurking here!!! Safe journeys, have a wonderful adventure-getaway, all the biggest love, xoxoxoxo

Indonesia! That will be fun. Such yummy food. I think that photo of your beautiful green stems sprouting little pinky red bud shoes is probably one of favorites ever. You always look divine. Have a great vacay!

Vix said...

Insanely jealous of your trip to Indonesia, my first big trip and one of my favourites. We'll miss you like mad.
Loving the frock, what a splendid curtain you used. The blue and yellow combo is glorious.
The red coat is divinely snuggly and that lime scarf is cracking, I'd have dived on that cutie, too.
Get packing and start relaxing! Miss you already. Love you! xxxxxxx

An outfit for lurking and an outfit for sunshine. There isn't an occasion you haven't got covered in the most heavenly way! Respect is due. And here, a new colour combination, yellow and blue, you never fail to inspire. Now is that wonderful pink handbag raffia darling? I love it with a passion! Damn right, you need a holiday, hope you enjoy every single second of it and come back as relaxed and refreshed as can be. In fact, now you come to mention it, holibobs are a great idea. I think I might follow suit! ;) Lots of love to you. xxxxxxx
