My mother-in-law gave me the loveliest soft simple white cashmere or lamb's wool fine knitted scarf for Christmas (with tassels), and it so perfectly matched the while knitted gloves I'd picked up for myself (& wrapped) as a gift from Mr. Dot (£2, from Sainsbury's) & she asked if I ever wear colour. She's known me for years & years & I thought about what I'd packed for the Christmas visit: black, black, a brown tee, a nude jumper, more black.. the black boots, and a brown pair.. oh and the nude sequin motorcycle jacket.. and several soft items in pale pink: socks, underwear, tees.. pink is a colour! I do wear colour! Pale, ballet pink.
And then I thought about what a hypocrite I am, saying I'm not a girly girl. I am so a girly girl. Just a mostly neutral coloured girly girl. And I haven't uploaded the snow photos I took from the window as we drove up to Herefordshire, and how much snow is like one of my favourite indoor activities: bubble baths. Only totally different in temperature.
Anyway, this is Natasha. I met her in Camden & she is so nice. And I can't think of any better way to describe her than to use her own words:
That was me ,Natasha in the pink fluffy cardigan.I had just been to a yoga class with my friend in primrose hill and we were just chilling out really ,eating veggie burgers.
I run a bridal shop in Hertfordshire by day and I teach yoga in the evenings
I bought my jumper in bay trading in Watford,my dress from Morgan in London and my top from a boutique in middlesex.Unfortunately I think that all those shops have ceased trading.I added my own ribbon which i bought from a haberdashery and my flower in my hair is a jonnie loves rosie one.
I think thats all really .As you probably gathered ,i love pink and fairytales.They both make life exciting .
Thanks for taking my photo,I feel very flattered.
And on that note, I'm off to do another favourite girly girl activity: cook my Old Man & me some supper. But I'll leave you all with a scene from my favourite ballet:
