An-Ode-to-Pineapples-5

Oh pineapples, how I love you. Whether it’s on a plate or in print form, there’s no denying that you’re pretty darn wonderful. I may be a little late to the pineapple party, but hey, I’m participating to the fullest. Gotta love those ananas comosus, am I right?! Getting to style up this delicious pineapple clutch by Luna on the Moon was one of the best opportunities ever, and since it’s arrival it has cemented itself as one of my very favourite bags. It may also help that I have miniature pineapple earrings to wear with it (unusual for this lady as I barely ever wear earrings – ever!)

Wearing the best colour possible – bright yellow, in case you didn’t know (!) we headed down to one of my favourite places – the boat sheds. I had visions of amazing light, a wind-free day, you know the sort.. Apparently Wellington doesn’t know the sort – so we stuck it out, taking photos as long as we could for an especially windy day. Strangely enough these have turned out to be some of my favourite photos – ever! …Though really, it might just come down to the abundance of pineapples!

Sometime recently, I’m not sure when exactly things happened.. I started developing strong feelings.. towards flamingoes!  I mean it too, I’ve fallen for those pink sweethearts in the biggest way possible. Slowly but surely, I’ve been building my collection of flamingo memorabilia; including an impressive amount of flamingo straws, inflatable flamingoes to carry my drinks in Las Vegas later this year, and I have a whole flock of the tiny flamingoes you can see in the very last picture.

No doubt, I’m sure you can see HOW EXCITED I was to add a couple of cute bits of flamingo jewellery to my ever-growing collection. I paired a Chicwish dress in the perfect hue, alongside this absolutely perfect (seriously!) flamingo necklace by And Mary, and earrings by Black Heart Creatives. FYI: I have six piercings in my ears, but I generally can’t stand the feeling of earrings – so am super fussy! These flamingo earrings passed the test though – I just couldn’t stop myself! I topped it all off with a vintage beret and a swipe of fuchsia lipstick – by Karen Murrell, just if you’d like to know. ; )
