Distinctly Floral

Well hello there! 

I'm so sorry for being quiet but last week I spent the week being hospitalised with a serious illness so I'm sure you can forgive me? Since being discharged on Friday I've been under strict doctor's orders to rest and not stress in the hope that I won't rebound. All seems good so far! 

I haven't been able to go shopping in what feels like a long, long time but I did nab these shorts from Asda a couple of weeks back. They're from the kids section and are aged 14-15 and fit me lovely. I did originally go for the 13-14 for a laugh and although I did manage to get them on they were a bit on the tighter side. For reference I'm a size 10. It just shows that you should always take a gander in the kids section as you never know what gems you may find! These were £10 which is a pretty average price but I think for their quality they're brilliant, plus I haven't seen pretty neutral floral toned shorts for anywhere near as cheap as these so they're a winner.

They'll look great bare legged and with a pair of black tights or leggings underneath! Despite the muted tones, I also reckon they'd fit in well later on in the year as they'd look ace with burgundy reds and  varying greys.
What do you reckon? Do you like clothes shopping in Supermarkets?

The name of my blog derives from my Etsy shop of which I have huge ambition for to be a success. It may not seem it now, due to ill health, but I have so, so many ideas and half completed projects that have yet to see the light of day within my little shop. I hope to have some of them completed and ready for you to purchase in the near future. These pieces are created to showcase what I, myself, depict as ideals of beauty and I hope that you are able to see it too. From black and white silhouettes to ditsy floral antique coloured pieces to intricate Victorian inspired designs: I will create it all. Here are some of the things currently for sale in the shop & some that I've sold in the past.



Pink and black birdy design available in a double and single

And some sold out designs:

"Tweet Dreams" birdy design

"Oh Little Bird" Ditsy floral cushion

And if you think that it's only cushions and pillow cases that I create then you are very much mistaken. I have a whole variety of beautiful and stunning home wares that are in the pipeline. So keep your eyes peeled for those! :)
