Winter Solstice in Purple

  To celebrate the Winter Solstice I donned my Ted Baker purple wool peplum jacket and black leather skirt and headed to the skate park at Royal Park to check out the latest street art or graffiti , depending on your point of view.


Not quite sure about this one but the pink and black worked well against the purple and it is so much better than the dull grey concrete block wall than it is painted on.
Life is fairly quiet here at present , plenty of time to read , potter and plan future projects.

 
The jacket has a colourful, silky lining - I do like a garment that is as good on the inside as the outside.

 This feathery, velvet hat is one I purchased at a small village in Portugal on my travels last year. The
joy of wearable souvenirs, memories at every wear.

 Winter and boots the perfect match - I have had these suede and fur Aquatalia booties for several Winter's and they remain favourites.

The Wedding Skirt Does Winter

 When I purchased this Sarah Puccini skirt for my son's wedding in February last year I envisioned many ways to style the skirt so it would not be just sitting in my closet waiting for a formal occasion,a scarce occurrence in my world.This is the skirt's first Winter outing and I must admit to being rather pleased with how everything came together.

 The skirt was paired with a black fine wool jumper , long black leather gloves, black boots by Paco Herero several Winters old , I am so pleased this toe shape is back again and just proves you should never get rid of things as fashion is so fickle . My black hat has also been with me for many a Winter and was purchased at a sadly, long gone local hat shop.I topped the outfit with a black wool , furry edged shawl. The shawl was originally a much longer wrap,that I recently has shortened, as I never wore it in its original form it was way too long and heavy . I now have the shawl and a scarf , so much more practical to wear.


Apologies for being missing in action for the last two weeks. My first week was planned as I was attending to a long overdue matter that needed my full physical and emotional strength, the second not at all , these photos were taken last week but when the time came for my post I sat at my computer at the ready but could not enter text and what is a blog without text. So after a frustrating week that very much challenged my lack of tech expertise a trip to Hobart fortunately arose and with the help of my son the blog now uses a different browser and the problem was solved, still no idea why this happened , the joy of computers and me.
