Hushabye Mountain...

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

A gentle breeze from Hushabye Mountain
Softly blows over lullaby bay
It fills the sails of boats that are waiting
Waiting to sail your worries away....

For some odd reason this song from chitty chitty bang bang is circling round and round my head today.. I love all those old movies, especially ones with Dick Van Dyke the man is awesome!

Dress: c/o Love Label, Knit: c/o Meemee, Tights: M&S, Booties: New Look, Snood: H&M,
Deer ring and Celtic ring: Topshop.

These photos dont do this outfit justice...bah damn grey dull winter weather!! This dress is probably one of my favourites, the one shoulder, the gathered in waist and the old upholstery style print I just love. I first wore it on my blog here on holiday in Crete as it is very much a summer dress... but I was determind to filter it into my winter wardrobe & teamed with this cropped wine knit I think Ive found a way!

  6. I love the idea of layering sweaters over summer dresses. I know I have items in my closet too that are meant for spring and button, but I just can't let them go. Such a lovely outfit! I love the bright bold print of the dress, which really stands out against the more simple pieces in the outfit.
