before the taking of a toast and tea

Photobucket

I rather look like I'm going for high tea somewhere in this get-up, don't I? Well, reality was even better: it was a Sunday morning in England in which is rained. I'm not one generally to celebrate rain but when you have a big bright room, a big warm bed, central heating that actually works, and no shortage of Yorkshire tea in the pot, and perhaps some hot buttered toast with heather honey, rain is the perfect delicious excuse to stay in bed.

It stopped raining for fifteen minutes so I got dressed and popped out to buy a Sunday paper (I LOVE the weekend papers and the magazines that come with them in the UK). Perfection achieved.

P.S. The skirt is the bottom half of my Q's Daydream playsuit!

In England!?!? Ah I am so behind, expect some comment bombarding as I get caught up on your blog w/ Thanksgiving holiday (while I avoid gatherings for huge school projects of course). I love how you turned that lovely play suit into a fall look, so simple and classy, very you!

Way to winterize that darling skirt. I love how it pops against the black and rainy days in bed with a good book, can't beat that.

p.s. I love your photos from Bristol too! I love street art.

this post actually had me reconsider wearing feminine vintage again, even though I've not been into it for ages. You look perfect!
