One green bottle

Thursday, November 07, 2013


Jacket and jeans – charity shop, top – Tesco (old), boots – Sarenza, hat – ebay

The colour of this jacket really hasn’t been caught at it’s best in these pictures. It is in fact a rich bottle green which happens to be a colour I don't usually tango with but I really enjoy it. The wide sleeves make it really different from anything else I own and certainly ring my bell. Tying the belt instead of doing it up makes me feel like I could sneak in as a plain extra into 'The Devil Wears Prada', especially with the hat and shoe boots. Watch me hail that cab...


They really don’t look it, but I put loads of effort into getting these pictures; as Husband was out I had to firstly balance the SLR on my table that acts as tripod by the back door, aim it right, set the timer, rumnnnnnnnnnn across the wet lawn then strike a pose and wait for the darn thing to take a picture and repeat times nine. Weirdly I liked most of them. Next week I rather hope to break free of the garden again and get some photos out and about again. I don't want to miss the best sights of Autumn.

In other news I’ve been feeling in such a good mood these past few days and it is highly unusual for me, nay, unheard of. I’m just running with it and enjoying the ride.  Happy Thursday!

  8. Good old self timers! My favourite blog photo activity is trying to capture the perfect jump with the timer! Strangely enough, something I manage quite well! I adore that coat- I really wanted one like that a couple of years ago with the fab sleeves! I stopped a girl on Oxford street wearing a pale blue version of your coat and asked where she got it from. It was Paul and Joe sadly, which was outside of my price range!x
