322 days to go: Purple Rain

Christina reminded me that it is Prince's 50th birthday this year.
I remember going to see the film several times in one week and I still have the video.
There was something so enigmatically sexy about him.
Or maybe it was because I was a lot younger then.
Anyway it was back to school today.
I was glad to see our Lollipop Man, George,who crossed me and my youngest over a busy road as we cycled to school.
The older children don't go back until Thursday so I was working from home and still supervising rows and television repairs (say no more!).

So I wore...
Ciel Dress
Heart Pendant (Gift from husband)
Shoes: Clark's
Purple Snakeskin effect Belt: ASOS

I added some cut-off jeans for the cycle rides to and from school.

For all those who saw my sad Minke Whale pictures yesterday here's the latest report in our evening paper.

Congrats on winning the comp btw.

I saw the bit about the whale in the Echo, it was very sad. Thanks for your post about it, it was beautifully written. Guess that's why you're a writer!

Okay Jane, I am going to have to go find some Clark's now. You are wearing them about 200 different ways and I need them too. Loved the dress, must have that belt too.

P.S. I'm not done yet. No fair being so cute and tan all at once!

Heather - Thanks. I think the shoes would look great on you too. I can just see you wearing them.

NSM - Thanks, you are very kind.

Karen - Clark's are getting so much funkier. They have a new series of ads out and the shoes are great quality. My tan will soon fade but your trip to Paris is still on the horizon. Enjoy!

The dress looks so great with the belt and shoes! Great look friend!

The song brings back memories. I'm going to have to look at the Clarks ads, I have always liked their good quality shoes.
