sunset skies and sunny delights

so it's been a good day so far, i got up and dressed and saw the boy off to work and went about my domestic duty of cleaning and washing. popped to the shop as i decided we needed some milk and picked up some kenco milicano for a cosy cup of coffee in my favourite vintage cup and saucer.




anyway, enough of the morning talk. i picked up this polka dot shirt a while ago on one of mine and the boys days out to woodbridge. woodbridge is such a beautiful village and full of so much character and the charity shopping is pretty good as i'm sure alot of people know! it's a bit of a big shirt, but i think it works better as a light-weight jacket just to add to a simple outfit. it's got shoulder pads which i always alwasy adore, they give such a structered elegant look to any piece and can dress it up or dress it down depending on the item. with this shirt, i tucked the sleeves up under the shoulder pads to give them more definition. i teamed this with a simple white vest and one of my favourite finds, a deep red velvet skater skirt.
in the other pictures, i substituted the polka shirt for another recent charity find which is this beigey/cream blouse with an unusual collar, its a circle collar that sort of buttons up underneath the other side of the collar (hard to explain!) please feel free to cringe and the constant overload of pictures, i'm sorry! i just love to see how pictures portray and outfit and seeing all different views, that's the first thing that draws me into each persons post.
of course i had to show you all my new favourite cup.
