le weekend / 10

June 21, 2015

le weekend
i’ve not been on everything akin for so long. too long. i’m that person that wants a blog to share all the shit – and then doesn’t do it….
i didn’t mean it & i still want it. so i be making the time again. for this & for yoga. because it was all feeling good, and like adriene* says … you should find what feels good.

this weekend i went on a road trip with good pal eileen of sugar8.. our mama style post lady.  she’s makes amazing wedding films for beautiful people all over the country. and sometimes i get to play assistant and get behind a camera** for her. it’s a good deal. and this time we were down in the shire. breaking down on motorways, eating crepes & crying at beautiful speeches & crazy minister-singing. check out her films here + here.  (both me + gill have the joy of owning/starring in an original sugar8 film. she’s the bombdiggety)
(and yes i think you star in your own wedding film…)

so le sunday of le weekend has been a sleepy scruffy day of wearing husband shirts, trying not to eat pot noodles, catching up on emails, hugging my dog and cleaning my bathroom.
and realising how shit i am at having a blog.

so . . happy fathers day to you all. have a merry merry evening. and i’m promising myself i’ll be sharing more of the good things in my drafts very soon.  like the dusen dusen home collection below. perf.

thanks & sorry & big ups to all the successful bloggers out there who do their shit everyday.

*adriene is my yoga-lady. on youtube. sweet & super at sharing. her videos are brilliant. easy to follow and when i was looking for a out from some work stress i happened upon her vlog series & fell in a little bit in love with her bedtime yoga sequence.  that girl saved my head that night. (and johns because i was one crazed lady ready to lose her shit and cry a bit)
check out her videos here & do some stretchy shit in your living room. gives me the feels.

me + the long checked shirt

June 2, 2015

the shirt one day last summer, i was in a shop that i usually keep for socks & flat shoes, with my 7 year old niece, buying said socks etc when i saw that shirt up there.  oh my days. less than 20 bucks it was. i was having it.  the niece laughed out loud and looked at me like i was seriously SILLY. so i took her with me to try it on & almost managed to convince her it was a good idea. ish. she was smirking when she agreed – but she’s a bit cool like that the wee bugger so i ignored her. she was 7. pah.

this is me + the long checked shirt & the 2nd in our style series with the ever german, always lovely caro weiss photography*.
shirt dressshirt dressshirt dressthe shirt dressit’s from P R I M A R K. shut the front door.
belted with sandals (and big pants/shorts because it’s super chiffony see through) or worn like the open floating over-shirt that it likes to be – i am not even doing it justice up there with my awkward face & muddy boots. but you can see it for what it is right? it’s a billowy good shout is what it is.

french-style 5 piece minimal capsule wardrobe compatibility?  ummmm low to no. BUT… it’s light, goes with all denims & bare legs – converse, high heels, hats + jumpers.. so i’ll be darndet it stays.

other (scruffy) outfit items from  t o p s h o p  /  h & m  /  a c c e s s o r i z e

please note my non-fashion-bloggerness & that most of the outfits we share on here are old favourites – not new hot of the press stuff.  i think that’s ok? no? bad blogger etiquette?  yikes if so – but i’ll keep sharing like a pal all the same.
