Blessed Be the Bold

Meekness is for meeces.
Not for me.
The kids are on school holidays and it's playtime for mama.
This is how she plays quietly.



I'm boldly wearing a 1960s hat from Etsy; 1930s silk PJ top from eBay; gorgeous faux fur bow tie made by the ever-lusious Helga von Trollop; pendant from the delish Vintage Vixen; Cathedral leggings from Black Milk; VW Melissa's from Amazon; leopard bag from Dandelion Vintage.






Thank you to The Stylist for being mama's photographer. xo





Oh, here's some more evidence of domestic sluttery - storage boxes galore - I have no idea what's in them anymore.
Go boldly where no woman has gone before.
Bless you my brazen minxes.
Desiree xoxo

  4. Looks like a fun day! I am getting ready to move after 12 years and still have unopened boxes from the last move that I have no idea what is in them. -T

  5. Ah Desiree, you are the brazenest minx of all (don't think brazenest is a word, but you get my drift) and you look beautiful!
    Glad you are enjoying your playtime. Well done to the Stylist for doing such a great job as photographer, my kids are bloody rubbish!
    Your hat is stunning, and you ALWAYS give good legging!
    AND you can walk in flatforms, which makes you a genius in my book! xxxx

  21. You lovely woman! Those leggings are quite bizarre.. I've never seen anything quite like them!

    I love the necklace from Vix, it looks stunning against that soft golf top.

    I adore the black and white postcard and if I were there I would be trying to figure out a way to remove those adds from the table without anybody realising haha! xxx
