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 :))
