Yesterday was wet! It seemed like a perfectly good day for a spot of blogging and then as soon as we arrived at the duck pond it started absolutely chucking it down! I'm not usually one for not taking photos during the rain because it just doesn't seem to work, does it? I figured though, since we'd got the bread, we'd gone all that way and the ducks had bothered come too, why not make the most of it? I'm all for experimenting and trying to photograph in the different elements. I picked up this bright evergreen alpaca jumper from Uniqlo in the sales for £9.90 the day before which I just couldn't resist. I saw it before it went in the sales and loved the colour. I don't think you can get enough of knitwear in winter time and a colour as vibrant as this makes a delightful addition to any wardrobe.
Shirt- Uniqlo Customized with Iron on patches
Skirt- Charity shop
Satchel- Cambridge Satchel
I think I was channeling my inner Cher from 'Clueless' this day with the skirt, the jumper and the shirt. I am extremely pleased with how my fish collar turned out- which by the way is a total DIY job! I found these adorable embroidered iron-on fish patches in my local haberdashery shop and thought they would look fabulous on a shirt collar tip. Unfortunately they weren't mirrored so I settled on having one fish upside down which I think still works. I've forever been lusting after the Victoria Beckham and Miu Miu novelty collars with the swans, naked women and cats on. At this present time I'm not really in the market to spend that much on a dress so a budget version you can do yourself like this I think looks equally cool. Not bad for £2 pair of iron-on fish and a crisp shirt from Uniqlo.
