I Covet!


I'm a great admirer of Orla Kiely's work, there is little that she does that I don't covet! From her bags and purses to her HeatTech collection with Uniqlo, to her reusable shopping bags with Tesco's I am an avid fan. So when I read last year that Orla Kiely was bringing out her first ever shoe collection with Clarks I was very excited! And the capsule collection containing six key styles doesn't disappoint. The use of Orla's patterns and retro colours have produce timeless vintage style shoes with a modern twist, and the attention to detail as ever looks amazing. As Clarks say, she is 'The Queen of Prints'! I adore the green 'Maltida' sandals but unfortunately I just don't 'do' heels! So her mustard Mary Janes are much more my thing. If only I could think of an occasion that I need them for or reason to justify buying them other than, I just really want them!

Colour to Inspire...........

I've found myself pinning a lot of images this last week that are grey and brown. 
Influenced highly one thinks by the grey skies of January, but all the images have a hint of a muted yellow or gold, 
which helps remind me that the sunshine is on its way, I just need to be a bit patient!

Plotting!




The New Year is good for plotting.
I think the start of a new year has that affect on you. I'm not talking making resolutions that you struggle to keep, but the making of plans, ideas and dreams. 
I'm feeling the need to organise and de-clutter. I'm feeling the urge to get on top of those little jobs that never get done and finish the ones that are half started. 
And I'm really feeling the need to get making and sewing all the ideas that have been occupying my thoughts for the last few months.
