Through The Looking Glass

Karen Millen Bird Print Cotton SkirtI'm past throwing tantrums over England's temperamental weather for a little while, though I'll admit it's got less to do with acceptance, and more to do with this summer's upcoming travels!  I'm counting down the days to this month's return to the South of France and the beautiful weather that (hopefully) awaits!  Besides stressing about my severe lack of bikinis and time to get everything done between now and wheeling my suitcase off to Sainte-Maxime, my mind is firmly fixed on colourful settings and sure, pretty things.  There's nothing so inspiring as travelling and I'm beginning to wonder whether this can apply even before you've been away; for one reason or another, the idea of becoming reacquainted with the South of France prompted me to fall into this Alice in Wonderland themed concept with a warm, tropical twist...

alice in wonderland fashion blogger garden sceneI've mentioned my love for dainty jewellery one million and one times on A Glass Of Ice - so, surely one more time can't hurt?!  What I love most about delicate pieces is their ability to complement an outfit without stealing the show, which goes a long way in explaining why Swedish brand Lily and Rose have a special place in my heart right now.  If you follow me on Twitter/Instagram, you'll have seen this past weekend's super-cute delivery of mini boxes by Lily and Rose containing the Miranda range in Rose Water Opal.  I find the concept of a matching jewellery set really lovely, particularly as I don't often opt for sets and rather individual pieces collected here and there.

Evidence of 'tumbling down the rabbit hole'?
I'm pretty convinced most of my summer wardrobe would work well with this Rose Water Opal set by Lily and Rose, however for this occasion I've opted for a tie-front sleeveless shirt that's been sitting in my wardrobe for a while, along with a colourful new purchase.  Late last week I picked up this gorgeous Karen Millen skirt in their summer sale; the tropical print combined with A-line design is such a magical combination!  I'm constantly torn between soft jersey materials that hug the body and structured shapes that make you feel as though 'everything is in place' - though this skirt may just have won the battle for the latter!

Happy July!  I hope this month treats you all really well and delivers bundles of sunshine and good news!

With love,

Gabrielle x

  10. Funnily enough, I was just looking at Alice in Wonderland-esque garden details, and then this! I adore your photos, as always, and the outfit and jewelry set are both lovely. A set is always a good option. I have to agree with Valeria as well, you'd make a perfect Alice.

  16. I love how whimsical all of these photos are and I love the addition of the mirror. That printed skirt makes me want to incorporate more colour into my wardrobe as well, and that's saying something because I'm pretty much black, white and grey all the way.

  23. Hi Gabrielle, wonderful photos. How did you get a mirror in the forest? Very Alice in Wonderland-esque! I do love the dainty jewellery. I have always loved chunky accessories. However as I get older, I am loving more lady like jewellery, such as the pieces showcased in this post.

    Have a wonderful trip to the south of France!

  47. That is such a lovely design, and in gold! Yes! No one ever showcases gold jewellery these days bahahaha! It's always silver tones. And I despise silver so much. It's so horrible on me. Anyhoo hopefully the weather will pick up, if not there's always the south of France. No doubt it will be delightful. Enjoy it (when it comes), I can't wait to live vicariously through you!

  53. wow,what an amazing skirt! I'm head over heels with its print...and I just love how you paired it with that lovely red shirt. Very feminine outfit and styling...and everything looks amazing on your perfect figure.

    your manicure is so pretty...and I do like your accessories. Wonderful rings and bracelet.

    you always look divine!!!!


    Lovely photos....and I do like the title and the setting. I'm very keen on Alice in Wonderland, I consider it to be a true masterpiece of literature...and really it has inspired so many artists...so there must be something to this book (both of them, I love Through Looking Glass as well...one of the rare instances where the sequel is just as good!)

  58. What a charming jewellery set. I often opt for individual pieces, in stead of sets, but I do have a few dainty jewellery sets that I occasionally wear together. The South of France sounds like a great upcoming holiday. :-)

I really like delicate jewelry over chunkier statement pieces when the outfit is strong enough to stand on its own. Plus, sometimes simpler jewelry just looks so good I can't help but admire how it looks haha
