Dancing
It’s still pretty cold where I am, so I made a “sensible” take on spring: some flowers, no jacket, but covered up to keep out the chill. One of the lovely things about this skirt is how flippy it is as you move, and in the first picture you can see the pretty broderie anglaise edging to the skirt as well. My only criticism is that the belt is no mod, and it was impossible to get it positioned so it didn’t cut into my waist at some point. I’m using a dance pole in Juicy, with hair from Simply Britnee.
I also liked the outfit with the recent Marguerite hair from Truth, since the hair flower picked up the motif from the Ulla shirt, so I have shown both hairstyles.

Pink blouse for anti-bullying day
Finally, on anti-bullying day, I added this pink frilly “A Lady’s Blouse” from Twosome and Maya bracelets from (luc).

Journey
The starting point for this look was the hair, the new 124 style from W&Y which comes with a colour-change straw boater. There seemed to be something rather 19th century about it – a day at the races, or boating down the Thames, so I went for a maxi skirt from Sn@tch and a laced bodice (the new Daisy top from SF Design). Daisies reminded me of this Dark Mouse necklace, and I bought the cocktail ring to go with it. The ring came with bangles, but I thought that you could have too many daisies, so I went with a plainer bangle from Eolande.
The Nightmare skirt has attachments for the legs, which are very useful for swooshing about and sitting down, but I wanted to leave a peek of the boots showing, so I just put on the main sculpted skirt.
My favourite skin is Tuli’s Elizabeth, so of course I had to try out Eva, and explore Tuli’s remodelled Journey sim (where these pictures were taken).

Gypsy in teal
There’s a wonderful boho feel to this recent dress from Mimikri, with tiers of silk taffeta. When I spotted this lacey shawl at Lika Ruby I thought they went perfectly together. The shawl has a little rose fastening at the front, with either short (shown here) or longer ties dangling down. The dress and shawl both have plunging necklines, so I covered up with a Michami undershirt (this particular item may be retired now, but Michami is still excellent for basic layers). I was also pleased to pull out a set of necklace and earrings by (luc) which carried through the colours and mood. I couldn’t make up my mind about hair, so I have shown the outfit with Lamb and Truth hair.

Comme les fleurs

This new gown from Baiastice is a sumptuous confection of silk and ribbon, which trails delicately on the ground. I particularly loved this delicate blue-pink lavender colour and found it toned well with this Fashionably Dead hair, with its colour-change flowers tucked behind one ear. Going along with the flower motif I pulled out the ornate bracelet from Swallowtail, and then couldn’t decide between a new RFL item from Alienbear, and the more elaborate necklace from Rozoregalia – so I’ve shown them both.

Sugarcubed
I don’t usually like sculpted skirts, but I couldn’t resist the colour of this new Sugarcube creation: it made me feel happy just looking at it. I thought it should have some bold colours to go with it, so I found a lovely bright top from A2NZ in my inventory, and tinted a wrap to match one of the reds in the skirt.
