Roots & dust rats

Over the past few days the weather has become wonderfully mild and today it was decidedly spring like.
Mark and I went for a long stroll along the nature trail via the pond.
My goose friend was nowhere to be seen, so she has either been picked up by the RSPCA or she was just hiding from us. 
This area is riddled with city foxes that could quite easily make a meal out of a flightless goose, so I'm really hoping nothing bad has happened to her.
I've started preparing for next Saturday's vintage jumble, so far I've only got to the picking out what to bring stage and I've still got heaps to do but I'm really looking forward to hopefully spreading a little bit of vintage joy to the punters :)
Vintage 80s jacket, Warehouse tweed shorts, mesh tank, 90s leotard, lurex cropped jumper, Indian wrap, layered tights, Steve Madden boots & knitted bobble hat
I've been meaning to dye my hair since we got back from holiday in January.
The mousy brown regrowth is evident and there's a good peppering of grey hairs coming through now.
Every time I go to put henna in my hair, I think...
"I really can't be arsed with this now" and end up not doing it.
I'm still very much in my winter lull, where 'mañana mañana' becomes my mantra.
However being sick for a few days also fairly knocked the wind out of my sails.
Hopefully this spell of mild weather will make me feel a bit more motivated to keep up appearances and perhaps even do a bit of urgently needed house cleaning.
Have a fantastic Sunday!
Lot's of love,

The colour(s) and look of your Lurex cropped jumper worn over your mesh tank and of your layered tights are beautiful. The Indian wrap and knitted bobble hat are a nice touch. It's a lovely outfit. I hope the goose you enjoyed seeing shows up unharmed. I know that sentiment "mañana mañana" too well - I'm quite adroit at it. I hope you feel at full health tomorrow and have a fantastic Sunday yourself! :)

I always go too long between hair dying times and have the same mousy brown/peppered gray root situation that you speak of... It's a bitch to find time to do that stuff. Good luck getting ready for that vintage jumble. I can only imagine the amount of work. Sounds so awesome, though!!

Gorgeous layers, love those sweet shorts and lacy tights.
I hate doing my roots but can't bear to look at myself when I don't. I look bald with my horrid blonde regrowth! xxx
