Today's mini photo challenge for the me-made May group is Green.
Yah, a fairly unoriginal backdrop but that is all I have time for today. I hope my ultra-smashing outfit more than makes up for it, haha.
So, talking of; I've seen clashing prints worn together in a few editorials lately and really liked the un-mixy-matchiness of it; so I decided to give it a whirl. And I likey! The floral and the check here are wildly different prints, but they have white and deep purple-y navy in common, tying them together, along with my old navy blue silk blazer for a bit of warmth. Navy blue was once upon a time a colour I wore daily; the colour of my school uniform. Consequently I avoided it for years. Finally I decided it actually suited me quite well, and embraced it again.
So, sorry about the post-haste nature of this, er hasty post (hehe) This may be my last for a while. We are heading away on our trip... and since I have no idea how easy or how extraordinarily difficult it will be to get on here, so will have to assume the latter.
I am reeeeeallly looking forward to meeting up with Donna while I am away... that will give some clue as to my eventual destination :D
in the meantime, wishing everyone a perfectly luver-ly day!!
