My plaid skirt died a death and it took me all of five seconds to fill it's empty hanger (which isn't empty yet because I may have to hold a funeral in order to make myself actually bin it). Anyway, new skirt. Consumerism strikes again :D
The splashes of colours almost look like impressionistic florals. Like the shapes of clouds it is a matter of interpretation - Rorschach skirt? ;)
It's an elasticated waist - the first I've owned in years and years. Eventually I am probably going to shorten the hem but this morning I just doubled the fabric around the elastic cuffing it and comfortably turned it from a mid calf affair into a knee length. Ea-sy. I think I could get into elastic :)
This is my first foray into two tone fingernails. I did a thin layer of a soft pink over a soft purple and then used masking tape to apply blue to the top half of each nail. Pretty pre-school when you see it close up but not too bad for a first try. I think I'll be putting that roll of masking tape to use again soon :)
I took these on Friday after work. It was touch and go between a nap and an outfit post but in the end I figured "no rest for the wicked" and cycled off towards the close by Country Park. I've been using my back-up bike lately (so handy to have a fallback). Dusty had a flat tire which got fixed today* so of course I had to celebrate being reunited with my favourite ride right away. Cycling in skirts and heels is so much easier on a shopper. No more oil stains!
*today being Friday. Time travel rules!
