Bowler Hats in Blue

Today, I think I found my new favourite park. Barnaby and I started our day with a driving adventure to take some photographs. We were both feeling completely uninspired by our first choice, so decided to venture further – and stumbled upon pure gold! We wandered down twisting gravel pathways, with bare trees looming overhead; what bliss! I also couldn’t resist sharing the cute wee photograph that Barnaby snapped of the two sparrows on the fence! They had been hopping from pole to pole; one was trying to cuddle, but the other wasn’t having any of it! It was too cute!

It’s completely bizarre that I’ve never worn my tiger skirt on Lost in the Haze before. It is one of my all-time favourite pieces! It was originally a frumpy 90s dress, which my mum had altered into a skirt. I own so many electric blue pieces; including my bowler hat, so it is especially easy to accessorize! The pan collared blouse I’m wearing was from the same thrifting excursion! I paired it with an Elsie Belle bunny necklace, and an ASOS glitter top.

    I love that your dress was originally a frumpy piece from the 90s.. some of the fashion back then was so awful, but this is fantastic as a skirt!
