Prwetty skirts

We took these pics a few weekends ago (you remember, when summer was here) when I was visiting my mum in St. Albans. It's funny, when I left St. A to go to uni I kinda fell out of love with the place, but now when I go back visit I appreciate the place so much more. This park is just incredible with a great lake in the middle full of ducks and coots etc. There were even four heron nests - we saw one of them sitting up with his wings spread doing what I can only describe at sunbathing, a heron after my own heart!

In mama's garden

I picked up the skirt a couple of years ago from Absolute Vintage - it was so pretty that for £12 I couldn't resist.  I also love the fact that I won't see anyone else wearing it - that's the best bit about vintage clothes.  That, and the price.  Double-whammy!

The breakdown:
Skirt: vintage via Absolute Vintage, £12
Vest: Primark (2010), £5
Belt: vintage Jaeger via Spitalfields market, £15
Shoes: Kate Kanzier, £25
Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters, £15
Bag: Argentina
Necklace: very old Accessorize

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that summer is on it's way back - i'm sure the good old Carol on BBC said it was going to reach 24 C today in London, stop press!

In other news i've supersized the blog so you can hopefully see the pics a bit clearer.  It's taking a while to get used to because everything is so, well, big, but as they say, change is a good thing!

Happy Wednesday lovelies
