Time of the Season

"It's the time of the season,
When the love runs high..."

This post's TUNE comes from The Zombies.  I wasn't about in the swinging sixties to know much about these, but from listening to this tune and other music in this wonderful era I'm pretty damn sure I would have fitted in perfectly.  This song came on the other day on my ipod using the ever brilliant shuffle, which every now and again throws out a song which makes me smile, this is one of them.  Give this song a listen, you'll love it.

You can listen to this wonderful tune here, and find out about The Zombies here.

Righteo then...

 Coat: H&M (old)
Bag: Peacocks (old)
Skirt: Internacionale (old)
Shirt: River Island (old)
Jumper: Primark (old)
Shoes: Office (£23.00, sale)

Yup, thats right, everything is old.  Sometimes it's ok to dig out those bits and pieces in your wardrobe that have somehow made it right to the back, sitting there all old and lonely.  We can't all wear something new all the time.

This week has been a crap one, I'm consoling myself by booking a holiday.  Sometimes we just need to have something good to look forward to, especially when it seems like there isn't anything nice and bright on the horizon.

p.s. I edit all my pics with PicMonkey.

Stay Sexy,
