coral is one of my favourite colours. i like how it hovers between pink and orange. you can see previous colours here: red, orange, yellow, green, blue/indigo, purple, black, white, silver and finally, gold! what’s been your favourite so far?
1// bianca green 2// crown & glory 3// asos pencil dress 4// baby mobile
» i have to admit, i’m a bit ‘over’ chevron patterns, but i love this one by bianca green because it’s a little different, and of course because it’s floral too.

i am kind of obsessed with wearing pom pom in my hair at the moment, so just to warn you, you may be seeing them a lot for a while. there will be a quick how to on wednesday if you want to know a super quick way of making them.
keeping it simple with the clothes today. looks like a toned down nautical look maybe, with the navy and stripes? probably not. i do love navy and stripes though.
pom poms // handmade by me
t-shirt // gap
skirt // charity shop
brooch (which is actually an earring) // charity shop
bracelet // charity shop
incase you’ve not guessed by now, i get most of my clothes from charity shops! would love some more actual vintage pieces if i could afford them. i need more pretty flower brooches in my life too. i always need more flowers in my life.
wow, it’s may already! i have actually been productive this week, unlike last week where i did very little.
i found my old 28mm vintage lens (which i took yesterdays outfit post with, and all of these) and with the crop factor on my 450d equates it to about 45mm, close enough to 50mm (heard of a ‘nifty fifty’?) for my needs. 50mm lenses are often called normal lenses, because they’re very close to what the human eye sees and has quite a good range when it comes to field of view. if you want to read a little more about crop factor & look at a useful comparison chart, click here. i can only use manual focus with it, but i’ve always preferred that anyway, and i think i might be using this lens from now on instead of the one that came with my camera.
i sorted through my little jewellery pot and found these little bits & bobs i forgot i had! a little crystal heart, two butterfly brooches (how did i forget about these? i love them!) and 3 dice. i don’t know why the dice were in with earrings and brooches, but they were a nice little surprise!
i remembered about free lensing. these were the only two that were somewhat decent, but i’m going to practice so i can take more. there’s a wonderful post about free-lensing on a beautiful mess.
i painted a stick. i know that doesn’t sound interesting but it’s a nice relaxing thing to do, plus it’s a free bit of decor for your house. always finding nice sticks when i’m out for walks, so i’m sure i’ll be painting some more soon.
and i made lots of pom poms! there’ll be a super quick DIY up next week.
