So a great perk of having your partner go abroad is that they feel they must, SIMPLY MUST, bring you a gift from where they went.
A few months ago I lucked out in this particular department.
Dr.S left to go to London and not only was I fiercely jealous that I couldn't go (because my family is there) but I also did miss him. I do have feelings you know!
I did have to stay to work as much as I would normally drop everything to travel alas I didn't on this occasion.
However, and that is however with a capital H.
He did bring me something back that warmed my heart to the 9th degree!
Here she is on the kitchen table after arriving home.
As soon as I peeked into the prized package Dr.S said,
'Hey if you don't like the colour take it to LV and exchange it'.
Now that was not a good thing to put into my brain.
Choice is hard for me in general!
So here is the lilac creature I was given. So so beautiful and summery, but it did set my mind off thinking.
I do prefer neutral tones as much as I like a pop of colour. On this specific day I was wearing a dress by KOOKAI in black but lilac would clash with most other colours.
Yes yes I know fashion forward clashing doesn't matter!
So sue me. I like bland!
After a couple of hundred selfies to see how she and I look together naturally!
We went to LV in Sydney and faffed around for half an hour until finally I saw my love and named her Petulia.
Don't ask me why.
I took her home, styled her with my orange KOOKAI dress and went to high tea for Erin's birthday.
