.the girls.

Coffee and strawberry macaroons with Chow and Alexis. The three of them stood, huddled around the counter and ummed and arred over their choice in flavor, fluffy pillows of biscuit in two colours lay under a shiny glass cake topper. One a delicious pink, the other, a rather unappealing dirty beige. Needless to say each girl chose a strawberry one.

They sat under the enveloping heaters and devoured delicate biscuit and drank piping hot coffee. The giggled and chattered and then stumbled off for photos.

There they twirled and pranced and laughed.

either a flying dinosaur awakened by a nuclear test is about to destroy the people next door or their television is too loud...

So unfortunately L’s poor little paw is still sore, but at least this means she can now walk in heels again. This means she could finally journey out for an outfit post!

The beautiful, crisp evening saw L and Chow venture out for coffee. Once again they were drawn to their favourite coffee haunt, Beaufort St.

Photobucket

With its overflowing cafe aromas, lively cocktail bars and tremendous food they are constantly stopping by. And I must say it helps that this electric street is less than a pounce away from L’s house.

Photobucket

They began their journey as always, gossiping and laughing and comparing notes on the past week, all the while L licked cocoa and milk froth off her spoon and Chow managed to snort powdered chocolate up her nose. A tremendous feat for anyone but her.

After coffee they spent over an hour crossing roads, snapping away and looking for the perfect light, which of course was found after they we’re done. In the form of the chemist car park, they then spent another 30 mins dodging cars and sitting under flood lights while people and cars gasped and stared.

This beautiful olive green dress is one L designed and made a little over 2 years ago. I love the swishy cut layered skirt - although it may be a tad short with these shoes. Worn here with her much favoured Babushka oversized square top and some cute ankle boots, I feel I am quite enamoured with this pairing. I wonder if my lovely readers agree with me?

sticks and stones will break your bones, but now words can kill you too...

These last few weeks L has been on a bit of a literacy kick (hence the disappearance from the blog, and the interwebs alike) Well that may be bit of an understatement. She’s read 25 novels in as many days and we have a feeling the end may not be insight.

Photobucket

In other news L took a tumble down the stairs the other day. The word tumble may be yet another understatement on our part. More like she went head over heels, bum in the air and smashed into a billion little pieces on the floor.

Ok so that one may have been an exaggeration, but her foot is royally rooted. So much so that she has to heavily drug herself up just to walk on it. Buster and I keep telling her that’s a bad idea and she should just stay in bed, but I guess it’s not in her nature to listen to super smart kitties.

This outfit is actually a couple of weeks old, just an easy, comfortable ensemble perfect for slumming around the house and schlepping to the shops.

Pigtails have been a constant in her outfits recently and to say we’re enamoured with them would be the least. They add that extra bit of girlish fun to the day that is ever so necessary.
