Feeling Yellow

Maybe it's our very sunshine-y weather this week or it's the proliferation of flowers around at the moment, but I've been feeling in the mood for wearing yellow lately!


Some local frangipanis I snapped this week. There are so many of these in my area, I always come home with a bag full whenever I go for a walk and spread them around the house...the scent is heavenly.


Today I wore my new 60s shift dress I picked up at the Byron Bay fair last week. Excuse the frizzy hair..it didn't look like that this morning, I swear!

Bright 'n' sunny hair flower




A true 60s shift, it has the easy-to-wear a-shape, very necessary in our humid weather, of which today was a 'shining' example.

I love the pocket and neck trim!
And just for Vix, here's that green maxi she spotted the other day.


Worn by our 'vintage apprentice' Shannon. She and I literally changed half the shop around today, including all the furniture...so we both have frizzy hair!
Love the rhinestone-type buttons!

I love frangipanis, that was one of the things I loved most about living in Brisbane. I think they are the sweetest smelling flower in the world. Hated that humudity though! xx
