Simply chic

Hello friends! Aren’t you happy it’s Friday? I definitely am even though I still have loads of work to do before I can relax. I’m taking next week off work so I have a lot of things to get done before then. I’m so looking forward to having a bit of a break and doing some exploring and photo taking. I’ll still be blogging though as I can’t stay away from all of you! I also have a great new giveaway that will be up on Monday.

Today’s post is a short one, inspired by Nicole of Gary Pepper Vintage. She is one talented girl! Nicole has a gorgeous blog and an online boutique specialising in exquisite vintage pieces. The photos below are of her in some of her vintage clothing, sigh, it makes me want to disappear right back to the countryside! I can’t remember when I last saw a maxi skirt looking so pretty. Her look is just so simple and yet perfectly elegant…

Today you can also find me over at From the right bank where I’m doing a guest post while Ally’s away, if you love ikat fabrics then this one’s for you! I’m also featured over at Jessie’s blog, Submersive whimsies, where she’s asked me a few questions as part of her Fridays with Bloggers series. And I’m also over at lovely Monika’s blog, Splendid Willow while she’s on holiday. Three guest posts in one day, it’s definitely a busy day for me! Pop over and visit to find out some more about me! Hope you all have a great weekend, I’ve got to rush and get some more work done now!
