Shades of Grey and Pink


Every year when the Magnolia buds begin to show I can’t help but count the moments until the spring blooms begin. The gardens in London are filled with Magnolias and Cherry Blossoms, looking out my window now I can see some in the garden in front. There is nothing as heart warming, when the winter months still make your hands cold as these light blooms decorating the branches and later pavements when the petals start to drop.


I know I won’t feel this post will be enough spring flowers for me, so be warned I’m sure more will follow.

Last year Kit and I had only just started to work together when the spring buds bloomed and we shot my tweed coat under that Magnolia tree.  She has always told me since that it was her favourite shoot with me. I think we both loved the blue and pink colours. So this season I said I would try and find another outfit worthy of the blooms. When Tibi sent me this skirt I just knew it was perfect for it.

    Classic Peony, I LOVE it! Tibi skirts are my absolute favourite & I adore the tiny stripe on yours. I remember last years shoot, it was one of my favourites, but I think this one is better.
    Hugs xoxo
