Today we went out for a croquet picnic in the park organized by the "Enchanting Hat Walk"-community; in other words, hats were mandatory.
I was hoping to be able to play croquet and go all "off with their heads!" as I felt my outfit entitled me to do so. (I also felt this is pretty much what most five year old girls in the world would want to look like at their birthday parties...)
But- the weather turned so bad we turned around pretty soon and went back home; the rainy day option of sitting in a cafe sipping champagne instead did not really suit the 5-and 10 olds in our party. (And as you can see the rain and humid air did not only ruin the plans, but also instantly ruined my fluffy curls, always as annoying.)
So the only sun we got were the sunflowers on our balcony.
(And just for the record, I love love love sunflowers!)
So it was just off with the princess clothes and on with the casual Sunday wear. I am getting older and what I earlier in my years would have referred to as more boring as I nowadays almost -or pretty much always actually- prefer less fluff and more plain. Well you know, that's the way it goes in the end I guess.
(By the way, that little olive tree of mine in the background looks pretty ridiculous. But it is still alive, so so far so good.)
The dress is an old one from Trashy Diva, the hat by Frollein von Sofa and the shoes my waterproof Melissas that sometimes are super comfy (like today) and other times not. Strange. My blouse is from Vivien of Holloway. Eddi pointed out today that it is actually a very nice one.
