Neon, sunshine and a butterfly
So we were paid a visit by a passing butterfly when we took these pictures, not unusual except that it's January. In England. It's so mild the poor things are confused and popping up all over the place.
I got the neon satchel for Christmas from my lovely Mr. Summers... my face was a picture when I opened it (shock and awe and amazement), I totally forgot that I'd said ages ago I would really love one. The gorgeous bling ring I got in my stocking, and then in total contrast the raincoat was a bargain from Karen Millen years ago. It was about £120 down to £30 and I was living in London when I bought it - it's at least 12 years old. I reckon the price-per-wear must now be in the minus figures, it's such a classic and has never dated.
So this is a bit of a "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue" post. Nothing to do with weddings. Can I say we borrowed the butterfly's time to take his picture?
