Those who know me personally will be aware of the fact that I'm afraid of butterflies. In fact, I hate any insect that can fly. I'm also not keen on butterflies in jewellery. I just think the butterfly motif is so overused, a bit boring and just a bit cliche now. Having said that, one is always allowed an exception to the rules they create, and here's mine; a rather wonderful long black butterfly necklace. Speaking of things that flutter, I am a fan of clothes that flutter; specifically, fluttery sleeves that move gracefully around your shoulders. This grey top has said sleeves, but is so ridiculously low cut that I have to layer a top underneath it, lest I show too much skin. Rather unusually, I didn't tuck the top into my skirt, something I nearly always do when wearing a skirt. It's nice to have a change now and then! Also worn today is a great pair of loafers I got recently. I like pointy shoes, I like silver shoes, and (currently) I like loafers, so these are pretty much amazing. My hair today was some kind of accidental genius. Somehow, I managed to make a mini-quiff in front of a larger beehive towards the back. Completely unplanned, and I bet I'll never be able to do it again! It was kinda tricky to photograph, but you hopefully get the idea.
