Hi Sweethearts!
Thank you all so much for your comments!
You know how changing our thoughts changes our lives?
Today I have been thinking about the little things that gave me joy during this ordinary Tuesday:
Black coffee first thing in the morning
A hug from a lovely collegue
Thinking about you guys
Having a councelling session with a pupil turn into a dance off with Rihannas latest hit blasting in my office (he is 12 and put my moves to shame, but I did walk the dog very nicely thank you very much LOL)
Feeling inspired to sew an outfit that reflects a painting that I love
Picturing my sis on a beach in Vietnam having her glasses nicked by a (very fashionforward) monkey
Laughing out loud at the memory of my brother working my bonkers glasses (he is a total sweetheart, and oddly pulled the glasses off better than I can)
Noticing the beautiful leaves on the trees on my way home when I remembered to lift my head and stop thinking about work
Making this list and realizing that this ordinary Tuesday has infact been a lovely Tuesday.
Tell me, what gave you joy today?

The outfit:
Dress, my design
Black dress worn as slip, my design
Wool bolero, Vero Moda
Various accessories
Booties, Nilson

xxx Anika

You are so beautiful!! This has to be my favorite outfit you've ever designed!! I love the pop or coral, the animal print, and the joy on your face! I'm glad you had a lovely day! :D I had a joyful day yesterday, I spent with my family, and I've never laughed so hard :D <3

We are twins because I love coffee first thing in the morning. It actually helps me start my day on a positive note. I also love taking the long train ride to work it helps me relax and think about the tasks ahead of me for the day. Finally, I love when a thought of my son pops in my head because it gives me something to look forward to coming home to.

I adore how you added a pop of pink/coral to the leopard skirt and neutral top. It works so well.And, in answer to the question posed on this post: What gave me joy today? I'd have to say it was seeing your comment on my blog, which led me to another great curvy girl blogger! Can't wait to explore your site some more!
