Sky Garden


Sky Garden is the highest garden in London, that offers the most stunning views!
 Forget paying for the london Eye and check out a spectacular view for free!


Towering high above all of the other buildings, Sky Garden literally stands out like a sore thumb! (I do mean that as a compliment, well kind of.)


The gardens are quite small, but who am I kidding, I was there purely for the view and some lunch. If refreshments are on offer, I'm partaking!!!


I put together a late 50s sweater girl look, that turned out looking rather Air hostess  in the best possible way, so I just went with it!


I sewed up the skirt a week before so that I could incorporate orange into the look. I don't usually wear orange at all, but I am loving it with this skirt, the print feels a little Hawaiian to me.


The fabric is a stretch cotton sateen that was an end of roll scrap I got cheaply at my local fabric shop. I wasn't sure what do do with it, and when in doubt, another skirt is always a good, wearable option for me.


Shoes from Agnes and Norman, that are suprisingly comfortable, I can't really wear many high heels, but this brand seems to agree with my feet.


Look at those views!


This is my first try at a French twist and it isn't half bad. A very chic style once you have it balanced precariously atop your head.


There are two restaurants in the gardens and also a café. I stopped for lunch and a cocktail in the Darwin brasserie.
 I had to get a cocktail once I saw that it would match my outfit. That just makes me happy!

A Cocktail should definitely match ones ensemble for true vintage elegance! And then sip slowly holding your drink up so that everyone can admire your exquisite colour coordination!


Let's all raise a glass to summer!

  2. What a fabulous outfit! I love the beautiful combination of aqua and tangerine. They marry so well and give off such a happy vibe. You look terrific, my dear, and I will joyfully raise a glass to summer with you!

  3. I'm terrified of heights so I don't think I'll be going to this restaurant any time soon, but I love your outfit and use of orange! It's a colour I've had nothing to do with until this year and it's so uplifting and fun to wear. And if that's your first attempt at a french twist consider me incredibly impressed!
