I never used to wear navy; now, I seem to wear it all the time. Since getting a pair of Topshop's Wide Leg Pinstripe Trousers, and this "COWBOY" bomber jacket from Depop, I seem to be wearing the colour very often and usually all at once. I love clashing patterns and it's quite fun limiting yourself to one colour but still trying to look a little crazy, as I tend to want to. I wore this outfit on Mother's day, on a little family trip out to central London. The shirt (worn over a navy velvet top I found at a market for €1 in France!) is part of an original 1940's skirt suit I found at a market, and I liked combining it with the bomber and giving it a casual and completely different style to the way it's designer probably intended it to be worn. I wore jewellery from Hirst Antiques, socks from Topshop, bag from Depop and shoes from Monki.
I also really want to work on the things I bring to the table, both creatively and otherwise. I have been keeping this blog forever but I have so much more in terms of ideas and thoughts that I want to put into words, paint on canvases, sew into clothes and capture in photographs. I want to start making and creating every day instead of spending some days only dreaming about it.
That got quite deep there. I could go on for hours. Instead, I'm going to go and make some art - one of the most cathartic / fulfilling things I can recommend in times of doubt about your creative potential. Anyway, I hope you all have a great week...I will have a longer post up in a day or two, but for now here are a few phone photos from Aurora and this week in general. Have a lovely week!
