{Bomber jacket - Cameo; dress - Keepsake; clutch - Oliver all from Lalabazaar boutique; heels - Guess}

Photos by the lovely Love Yaz.


In the halcyon days of our distant youth, Yazzi (the exquisite photographer of most of my blog's images, if you haven't already noticed) and I were quite avid tennis players (and, in fact, is how we met - isn't life just lovely sometimes?) so as we frolicked around Beaudesert Sports Club in the golden afternoon sun, I couldn't help ponder on our beautifully humble beginnings : two girls playing for the love of sport ... I don't think we could have anticipated the serendipity that would eventuate in us expressing our creative hearts together in a completely different medium ten years into the future. 

...And isn't it just utterly delightful that life unites people in wonderfully unexpected ways? If there has been a cherished friend who has diminished in the haze of your prettily chaotic life, may this serve as a reminder to perhaps send a little love note, or better yet, arrange for an afternoon of coffee and cake...

Much love, Mandy xx

  20. That dress looks stunning on you!! Girl I'd love to see it on without a jacket over top - which is very cute too I might add.
