A little outfit post. I've been meaning to do more of these, but I'm still struggling with finding places to take photos. I had high hopes of getting some outdoor pictures, but alas the weather has turned overcast again. Anyway, this is what I wore for a family dinner.
I've been wearing this H&M cardigan a lot recently, as it's a good cardigan for Spring-warm enough, but not too heavy. I really like the rich blue colour and the rose print. I thought it picked out the blue butterflies and black leaves on my dress well.

Yesterday I went to a blogger event run by the Bath in Fashion team. It was my first ever blogger event!

The day started at the beautiful Royal Crescent Hotel. Unfortunately I was very late so missed this bit and arrived just as everyone was about to leave. It was a shame as the Royal Crescent Hotel looks wonderful, with lovely gardens! I would love to go back and spend more time there. I was put into a group with three bloggers from Bristol-from left to right are Tara of The Style Rawr, B of SoulSparkler and SJ of Ship-shape and Bristol Fashion. Then it was off for the fashion scavenger hunt!

When I got home from The Power of the Sea preview, I realised with some regret that I had forgotten to ask anyone to take a picture of me. Well, it turns out that someone had, without me realising!

Apparently I was so engrossed in looking at paintings, I didn't notice the photographer. It was a lovely surprise to see this on the RWA's Flickr, and I think this picture accurately captures me in blogging mode-taking in the details, camera at the ready!

It was my brother's birthday yesterday so I made him a card. I drew/painted a koi carp. My brother is very interested in Japanese culture, and koi have associations with male strength, good fortune and perseverance in Japanese symbolism. So they seemed a pretty good thing to draw for him!
