Vintage Patchwork Bag, Yellow Wedges

Sometimes I like to base an outfit around an accessory, like a statement necklace, a pair of shoes... or a vintage patchwork knitting bag. I got this lovely little bag from eBay last year, and I'm not too bothered whether it's office-appropriate or not (regular readers may know my office has a rather relaxed dress code). I purposely wore the most neutral pair of trousers I own to show off it's lovely vintage patchworkiness. But what was really nice was that the sun made an appearance when these photos were taken - we were marvelling at the big shiny yellow ball in the sky and basking in its vague, hazy warmth. Bliss.

Once again this is a scheduled post while I'm travelling round Cornwall in a (hired) 60s VW campervan, so I will be really looking forward to reading your lovely comments when I get back. Let's hope it's not raining...! Happy Thursday folks :))

  8. Another great outfit. I noticed your nails and toes match; don't tell me you change your toe nail polish as often as your hands!? It takes me forever to do my nails.....

  9. Love your bag! Perfect for bringing different colours together in an outfit! Your nails are the perfect accent!
