Things that make you smile

July 19, 2012

Last Saturday I had the most pleasant surprise: Mrs Allnut sent me a hand crocheted beret! I went to the Post Office to pick up a couple of parcels and there it was, along with a really sweet handmade card. It really made my day and brightened up my mood. Thank you ever so much for the present, it means a lot!

I had to work it into an outfit this week (I couldn’t wait to wear it, really), so I wore it yesterday like this:

Becca took these on our lunch break when we went to pick up our pizza order for the whole team. This is her car, by the way. I thought that it would make a fun background to complement all the colour I was wearing! Thanks Becca for being today’s photographer!
The details:
Beret – Handmade by the fantastic Mrs Allnut
Cowboy Boot Shirt – Luella for Target (thrifted in Florida)
Tshirt – Primark
Skirt – American Apparel, via Ebay
Tights – H&M
Shoes – Predictions
Bag – Alice, via TK Maxx
Ring – Primark
Here’s a closer shot of the shirt (how cute is that?) and the ring. The nail colour is by H&M.
(Apologies for the phone camera photos, I had a very long day yesterday.)
Amy from Dolls are United! has also published my first post as resident blogger on her page and you can see it here. Quoting the film Casablanca, “Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship”.
What has made you smile recently?

    What a cute blouse, and beret!! I've been wanting a crocheted beret myself. I'll have to go check to see if she has an Etsy shop. Have a great weekend coming up!
