Get Your Picnic On

If you do not want thoughts of all things Mother of Pearl , then do not read on. I finally got to sit down this morning and read the Sunday Times Style Magazine (all 4/7 later I know). Laura Atkinson’s style barometer was en pointe. She thrust me in to a picnic-themed blog frenzy and here we are.


Luella Navy Check Blanket with Carrier.


Can we discuss the picnic bag- a luella navy check blanket with tan carrier bag. Is it a bag with a blanket or a blanket with bag? Either way I’m loving the navy and tan palate.


As I research Mother of Pearl this morning, I am drawn from the original idea of writing about picnic and basket/ beach bags to pure picnic talk. Whoever would have though there was so much to discuss. The TV show ‘Keeping up Appearances’ springs to mind when I say the word. I have no idea why. I guess Amy Powney delved deep in to the Yorkshire landscape for this fabulous SS18 collection as inspiration. Next, I envision all things gingham.


Check these babies out. The ‘Amber’ mule , also by Mother of Pearl. You can wrap the silk in multiple ways to suit your picnic needs.


Maise Striped Dress in Bue silk

Fancy some silk knots wrapped around gold rings? This plunging back V midi is the one for you. Pair with them stunning gingham Amber sandals and your ready for your cucumber, crustless sandwich cut.


The Aspen Striped Shirt; how delightful! The split, silk cuff is held together by a dainty pearl and chain; Attention to detail spot on. Pass me the prosecco, I would definitely picnic in this.

To Ezpopsy or Not to Ezpopsy?

Dusting cobwebs off my MacBook gand digits), I’m finally coming up for air. If only I could type as fast as my eyes have fed over this past month’s Vogue, HFM or Grazia.

I have discovered, upon my Instagram flicking, this lovely pop-up advert called Ezpopsy. I’m fairly certain they’re made in China. “Sure isn’t that where most are?” says you. Anyway after some research nevertheless, you know when you click the ‘About Us’ section on a website, some more information pops up on the founder, well I’m still none the wiser. If anyone knows more about this founder can one contact me? Lets not hold that against their creativity though. Shall we?

How stunning are these dresses? I don’t know about the rest of you but I can see Grace Kelly in that bottle green, aline laced version above.

I’m thinking Gucci met Mufassa at some point in this little full length bowtie maxi. I love the symmetry which as a rule, goes against my grain, but for some reason I need not debate this stunning piece.

Two piece, pretty in pink. Herm├Ęs and Carolina Herrera have baby and this is the end product. Either way, I am a fan. Maria Buffini this would look good on you.

Ezpopsy. Worth the look.
