I got my second Covid jab today…woohoo! I’m hoping I won’t feel as ill as I did after the first one by tomorrow. But just in case, I’ve stocked up on paracetamol. The vaccination centre is in a small retail park where there’s a supermarket, and bizarrely there was a man with four Harris hawks in the car park! I went over for a chat and he told me they were having a day off from dispersing gulls and pigeons, you know, just chilling outside Asda! I put a couple of photos on my Instagram stories if you’re curious to see what they look like.
As I had no photos prepared for today we shot these when I got home. I’d been watching a couple of shirts from the same seller on eBay, and although I was outbid on the first I was the only bidder on this one. By an amazing coincidence I’d bought this bag a few days before – from a different seller – and I noticed from the photos that the print looked very similar. When they arrived it turned out they are the exact same print! Miraculously, I’d bought a matching vintage shirt and bag without realising it! This kind of serendipitous sartorial event doesn’t happen very often, so it’s even more extraordinary when it involves vintage pieces.
To pick out the oranges in the print I’ve teamed the shirt and bag with these marigold trousers. You may remember that I recently paired them with a vintage blue shirt. I think this marigold hue is much more versatile than bright orange – in the same way that mustard is more versatile than bright yellow. I’ve taken another set of photos with these trousers and a very unusual top – a combination that I didn’t think would work, but to my surprise I absolutely loved it! I’ll be posting that outfit soon!
