What I Wore :: All Day Long, I Sit and Dream of Lotta and Celia

Can you believe this is my fourth Passion for Fashion link up and outfit post? Nor can I! When Rachel, of Rachel the Hat, shared her finds from the Celia Birtwell for Uniqlo range in this post, she asked: Did you manage to bag anything from the Celia Birtwell for Uniqlo range? Well, yes. Yes, I did as a matter of fact. In March, I shared my love of the range here and was lucky enough to snap up this shirt. Since then, it has been sat in my wardrobe, unloved and forgotten, until the arrival of their soul mate…my new Lotta from Sweden clogs. 

They arrived on Saturday morning, perfectly wrapped in lemon tissue paper and rustic brown paper. I was really surprised at how quickly they arrived, I’d ordered them late on Thursday evening (with my spends from my eBay sales, kerching!) and by Saturday morning they were adorning my feet. 
 
Even if we’re having a night in, the boy and I like to take a stroll. We spend so much of our time on the phone to one another, sometimes it’s good to talk to face to face. We are in a long distance relationship, however if you read about Michelle’s LDR …40 miles is nothing! One of the places we visit most is the Singing Ringing Tree, a sculpture which creates an eerie sound when the wind whips through it.

I’m so glad we took the short drive up there! Don’t you love catching the final rays of sunshine in a day? I do! Especially when I know that in a matter of mere weeks it’ll be dark nights and piles of marking. The view was simply spectacular and then we were treated to the most wonderful sunset…

I’ll be honest, blogger’s doubt crept in on this post. After seeing the pictures, I started to wish I’d worn foundation or worn looser jeans. Was the shirt too big? Did it make me look bigger than I am? Should I have painted my nails? I’m laughing now as I type this. Who cares? The bloggers I admire are the ones who take their photos spur of the moment, flaws and all. It’s taken me 28 years to finally feel comfortable in my skin. So, this post stays. Plus, the boy’s sunset photographs are simply divine, I felt they needed sharing!

Who wants to be perfect anyway?
Do you own any of the Celia Birtwell for Uniqlo range? How do you style it? Did you buy any of the Lulu Guinness for Uniqlo range?

As always, much love,
