More pastels. I love them!
This shirt is woven into a breathable mesh weave. It is a dream to wear on a hot summer's day. As we are not quite there yet, I added in a cardigan for extra warmth.
I got the tie ages ago, but because of the colour and floral pattern, I always felt it was one I could only really wear in Spring.
I will finish this outfit with my grey cotton jacket (shown in recent posted looks)
I'm so grateful to Colette + DHL for getting this watch over to me so quickly. I really wanted to wear this as part of this outfit today, and it arrived just in time!
Today's Fragrance: Escentric 01 by Escentric Molecules.
I think it is so easy to look down on a fragrance that isn't from one of the well known fragrance houses (and I freely admit that I am often guilty of this); but when I sampled this in store, it just blew me away!
It's difficult to articulate how this works; when you first apply it, you smell the stronger elements, and then it appears to die away. After a few minutes it settles into the skin, and for the rest of the day waves of what I can only describe this sensually warm olfactory glow continue to stimulate the nose (slightly woody, and a bit of musk too with hints of pink pepper). This is direct contrast to many other perfumes which are strong at first then fade away completely after a few hours.
It has already got me two compliments: one from a friend, and another from a stranger who stopped me in the street!
