Inspiration: Clutch, Tailoring, Softness and Lace

I’m back! It was a great trip with an unusual adventure I wasn’t expecting at all but more about that soon 🙂 While I get back on schedule and routine, here are some looks I’m loving right now and for the coming months.

    Love the checked coat and the West African waxed cotton skirts. I’e inherited a couple of clutch bags but find them wildly impractical for my lifestyle – no room for a brolly or a bottle of wine! x

    Welcome home! Glad you’re back safely and with coming news … always fun.
    These women, gorgeous though they are, seem like another species. It’s never advisable to compare oneself, but I feel like a hobbit next to these glamazons. I’m even proportioned so differently. Still, I get inspired as well … there are some lovely clothes here. I see your taste in evidence! Elegant you … always.

    I saw a skirt in Goodwill today that I should have gotten!! It resembled the gorgeous African print skirt you show above. It was tiny, but I could’ve repurposed the fabric for something…!!! Oh well. I love the choices you show here, with different elements to absorb and integrate. This is why I love fashion!!
