Happy weekend, dear friends xx

Farm ...

 I've seen it written that the Olympic opening ceremony is going to begin with an English farmyard full of real live farm animals! 
So cute... I can't wait to see how it all comes together...

And these are the people behind it; not that you would guess it from this awfully dismal photo, poor lot. Get these people some Photo Shop! They've earned it!

Bring on the festivities!

Combo ...

Fabulous colour combo - white, navy and leopard.
Clearly, I define leopard as a colour! 
Why not, hey?

4 things I learned on my recent jaunt on the Gold Coast ...

That lunch (and very likely dinner) tastes infinitely better when you've travelled to it on a lovely big boat on a beautiful sunny day...
(Photo above of Abbey, Sally and I)

 That even slightly uninspiring architecture can be appealing with a sail boat parked out the front ...

 That I've never met a fishing vessel I didn't greatly desire as my primary place of residence... 
This one was in harbour at Sanctuary cove, having a little rest ...

And lastly, that I am an atrocious under-packer ...

I usually feel so proud of myself for conjuring up such versatile mix-and-match outfits but ultimately kick myself on arrival when this capsule wardrobe proves a little too capsule!

Obviously I had no choice but to therefore buy the above skirt..
It was a necessity.

A big thankyou to Sal (and Tim and Wally!) for having us, it was such fun!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend as well, dear friends xx

Hat ...

I'm on the lookout for a Panama hat for the upcoming tropical holiday ... my stupidly large head is proving to be a bit problematic! Any suggestions?
Also, would anyone know if these hats do in fact successfully roll up or do they end up looking like something Henry had a little chew on....?

Muchas gracias in advance for your answers  xx

Cinema ...

I'm super excited that Wes Anderson's latest adventure, Moonrise Kingdom, is soon to be released...
Even the poster tickles my fancy!

As someone who often gets caught up watching the set and production design more than the actual story line, I was fascinated to read about the font design for the films titles ... what a cool job!

Things ...

 I'm looking forward to this weekend ...
Catching up with my main man, Monsieur Henri ...
Dreaming up outfits for an upcoming holiday with the girls ...
 Mega-watt inspiration here ... (one can dream)
And having a little sleep in ...

Happy weekend, dear friends xx

Distracted ...

Bad blogger.
Forgive me.

While I wish it was a whirl wind love affair, it was in fact the evil temptresses Pinterest and Instagram that had lured me away....
As had this page turner, and countless thoughts of decorating schemes and travel to distant lands ...
