Quote of Note and a little March Fashion Talk

"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade."
Charles Dickens

...And when it's neigh on impossible to know how one ought to dress: your winter clothes feel heavy, your spring clothes too light...
Enter the new hemline of 2011 -  Mid calf. Frumpy you say? Well, it certainly could be, and perhaps it used to be, synonymous with bulky tweed and thick, tan nylon stockings. But take a quick look at the lovely compositions below, and I'm sure you'll agree that styled like this, mid calf skirts feel pretty and fresh, and just about perfect for "one of those March days"...


Pretty sophistication from Chloe, made extra wearable with ballet flats.


Narciso Rodriguez. Casual elegance perfected.
Love the nude and black colour combo.

Happy Weekend all, hope you have something cheerful planned? I'm staying in today, thinking I would get some things done around the house, like laundry... And later, because Noah finally lost his umbilical cord stump this morning, I'm giving baby his first real bath! He really enjoys foot rubs, so tonight when he's all clean and cosy, we will try a full body massage, using the deliciously sweet smelling  Sweetleaf baby Lotion from Thymes (thanks Christi!), that I've been saving for this very special occasion. :)

See you next week, when I fully plan on finally divulging our birth story... Xx
