Since finishing uni last week, I've gone a bit skirt crazy and have made 3 skirts, and found another 3 in Charity Shops that need alterations. I made this one yesterday morning (from a men's shirt) and took it off quickly to take a photo. Little Honey couldn't keep her paws off it!
The brushed cotton is so soft and cosy...
It's just so comfy and easy to wear. I want to make 5 more, but do I need so many..?
I found this Anglepoise in a bric-a-brac shop in Brighton last weekend. It was quite a bargain and I adore the colour.
The sea air in Brighton was really refreshing.
We went on a trip to Oxford on Sunday morning and travelled via Paddington.
Can't wait for these home grown pears to ripen fully.

I've always loved the idea of creating a capsule wardrobe: a collection of pieces that coordinate with each other. I'm not organised or minimalist enough to achieve a totally capsule wardrobe, but I do love to pieces that mix and match.
Over the last few weeks I've been wearing a lot of navy with coral and was so excited to find a scarf that incorporates both colours! I think this coat by APC is my ultimate dream, but at $560 it's likely that I'll stick with the navy blue one from UO that I bought a couple of years ago!

I finally had a film developed that had been in my Agfa since July. It always amazes me how it captures details, like the sun reflecting on the lake above. It has come out just how I remember it.
I took a few photos of the side wall of Tate Britain that overlooks my college, whilst waiting around for a tutorial. The craters in the stone are traces of bomb damage during the war.
Daisies in my granny's garden, standing tall and proud, holding so much hope for the coming summer months.

Over the last few weeks, my life has been filled with miniature staircases and trees, as I've been finishing my final project.
It was exhausting; I've never worked so hard in my life. I couldn't have done it without the support of my family. One little person found it a bit boring and did all she could to get my attention.
Now college is (mostly) over I can relax and take things easy (for a little while)...
I enjoyed the last few days of sunshine before the rain arrived.
It's so nice to finally have the time to do things like picking damsons (although I wasn't much help and decided to take photos instead...)
