Style: Spring Time Country19:09:00
I have been quite busy this weekend and have only just sat down and stopped. I am a bugger for cramming so much into my life that I often forget I do need some down time... and more importantly to give myself time to relax.
I absolutely love flowers, and gardening is on my next checklist of things I must learn. I know that my favourite flowers are peonies and that I love any David Austen Roses, but I wouldn't know where to start with creating my own. I was invited to attend the Chelsea Flower Show this year but unfortunately due to work I can't attend, I'm truly gutted because it's the one event I have never had a chance to get to. When I flicked through the images from previous years shows it really made me realise how great it is to have a garden and be outdoors.
Laura Orchant initially hand sketches the design and then digitally manipulates the drawing into an explosion of bright colours and fractal patterns.A lot of the 24 year old, Manchester born designers inspiration comes from nature, animals or the woman's form, this is then printed onto luxurious silk or viscous in various sizes. The scarves range from £80-£150.
I am a huge fan of scarves which you will have noticed from my previous posts, but this one is my must have one at the moment. It really makes a very average outfit come to life, especially with subtle hints of colour through the other garments.
I'm off to Barcelona this week with work and to be quite honest I'm not looking forward to packing! I'm going to be indoors most of the time and will be doing long days. Anyways I'll no doubt tell you all about my adventures...plus I've still got lots to tell you about my other adventures this weekend!
