Spring Capsule Wardrobe Challenge Day Nine

Just to reassure everyone - I have been doing some laundry during this challenge.
Today it is back to the striped top and denim skirt.
It will be a busy day running around on errands and picking up a hire car as my car is still very sick.
I have added one more item for the photograph below - this lovely pink bag.
But I am not counting it as an extra item as it's not for me.
I have bought it as a gift.
Isn't it lovely?
Remember yesterday when I said I was off to report on an event for International Women's Day?
It was there I met a wonderfully warm woman called Kiki.
I arrived late and Kiki got me a spare chair, some cake and tea and made me feel very welcome.
I admired the beautiful handmade bag she was carrying.
Kiki who hails from Germany told me that since arriving in the UK she has converted her love "of making pretty things" into a business called Aliki Bags.
I cannot begin to tell you how beautifully made these bags are.
As soon as I got home I went onto her website and bought this pink one for a very special lady.
Here's a selection of pictures which still don't do the bag justice.

Today I wore:
Boots - Clarks
Skirt - Marks and Spencer
Top - Asos
Heart Pendant - Spanish Market


  1. That is definitely a gorgeous bag!

  2. I love that top of yours and the outfit looks great with that bag!

  3. Today's outfit has to be one of my favorites. I'm off to check the link to the bags, the one you chose looks lovely.


  4. OMG... day 9 ? !!!!
    I bet you are a total master at packing for trips !

  5. Hi there-love this outfit and the bag's gorgeous!

  6. Gorgeous bag! She is so clever. I've been looking at her site - she makes such lovely things. Sounds like you're having a busy but fab week with a wonderful birthday for Joe and Mother's Day just around the corner. Enjoy xxx
