Little Fluffy Clouds in the Sky

Why fight it? 
The first day Black Milk put up these leggings, my finger hovered momentarily over the "add to cart" button and click, it was all done in a flash.
Now I can hum The Orb's Little Fluffy Clouds while perched in a tree, pegs encased in a vibrant summer sky.



I may have missed out on a vintage fashion fair this weekend, but my daughter and I made up for it by spending a lovely couple of hours at a little craft market, climbing trees and mucking about in harbour rock pools.


I'm wearing a thrifted silk scarf tied into a turban, 1930s camisole I re-fashioned, thrifted bilum bag from Papua New Guinea, thrifted 1950s necklace, thrifted 1970s sunnies and Docs.




I found this lovely little green ring made by a Kiwi lady who has an Etsy shop too.
I love how many crafters are so accessible these days - so many of artists sell at one-off markets, online stores, pop-up shops and take special orders.


You are feeling sleepy ... your eyes are getting heavy. 
Something hypnotic about a bright sky isn't there?




Did you have a wonderful Sunday?
Desiree xoxo
