Water Waves, and Peacock Impressions

This week went by very rapidly, yet it was such a productive one for me, so I was grateful. Now, the time has come for me to actually go through those low-priority mails, and very old magazines stashed away especially for moments like these. 

The colours in this outfit reminded me of the waves and ripples of water, as well as the beautiful colours of peacock feathers.

Similar to many of my favourite skirts (with tulle) this skirt has that charming swoosh effect when walking. You know, that gorgeous drape that you get with chiffon or the girly princess-like layers in tutu form on a garment? Although there was no tulle involved this time around, I still felt the same ... happy!


What are your plans for the weekend? I will likely be house-sitting over the weekend for a friend, which will be a nice change in environment and somewhat, respite from the busy life. Drawing and painting time may even commence, since I don't seem to get a chance to that as much as I used to.

  Wishing you a bright and joyful weekend!
