His & Her Brooches!

How sweet is this wee brooch set! They were sent to me via desertöse, and are the cutest ever! Looking down and seeing a felt little face peering back makes me incredibly happy – and even better; there are two! I am so excited to wear them this winter; I think they will suit a coat collar truly wonderfully. They were the perfect accessory to the vintage pink dress I wore today. I’ve recently developed a fascination over checkered print – and this dress in particular makes me feel slightly reminiscent of Elmer the elephant! Hooray!

We had originally planned to visit the Christchurch Busker’s Festival today, but we were both feeling completely exhausted. Instead, we settled for an afternoon of park bench-lounging, and pine cone gathering. I’m ecstatic that it’s finally the weekend – more walks and sleep-ins I say!

  2. What girl doesn’t love adorable things/trinkets such as this? Your dress is very lovely and I love the fact that the collar is not centered; gives it a bit more character. I’m glad that you wore your hair up too, it really helps put emphases on your kitty brooch. =)

  12. Love the colors & pattern on that top & you look beautiful! Those adorable kitties def go great w/ the dress. Lounging never sounds like a bad way to spend a day- esp in such a beautiful park! And thanks about my top, it’s hand woven in Oaxaca Mexico and really special to me, similar ones are up in my nonprofit shop that benefits the communities who make each item (but I won’t ramble on about it here : ). Enjoy your week!
