Feathers have been used as an adornment for women, and men, for centuries. After-all they come in a variety of magnificent colours, patterns and shapes. I think feathers add a bit of whimsy to an outfit.
This top was a sale item I purchased last year. It is actually a hi - lo tunic style, but I quite like it tucked into a skirt. I wear this top to work quite often. It is good because it has short sleeves, which means I don't feel I need to wear a cardigan with it. The skirt is also an old purchase, from a brand called Leesa. It is actually a shop that caters to older women. However, when I was in there with my Mother I found quite a few lovely items for myself. For me, this ust goes to show to look around. You will find lovely things in unexpected places.
This skirt is a soft, silky stretch material. It has a gathered skirt, but also features deep pockets. It is a dream to wear.

Nerida picked up the bright turquoise dress from Millers. It is a perfect summer staple as it is lightweight, stretch cotton type material. It came with the tab coloured belt. It is a dress that lends itself really well to lots of different colours and looks. So far every time she has worn it she has made it look completely different.
The shoes are mine, but they just happened to match the rusty red colour of the feathers perfectly. I was tempted to do a bag search on Nerida before she left my house because I wasn't convinced I was going to get them back!
