Travelling Fleur

>> This blog lately just seems to be full of apologies.  I'm giving myself the 'It's Auuuuuugust!' excuse though and leaving it be.  I will be completely chocker block with travelling over the next month or so.  You'll start seeing some dark shades of tiredness circling my face.  I may even begin to loathe packing and you're talking to the person who loves a good packing sesh… rolling t-shirts, skirts and cramming them in.  Once I get some wheels and a trolley pull on this new Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair acquisition, I'll be set for the month+ cycle of monotonous security checks and immigration asking "You SURE this passport is yours?" (due for a new one soon fortunately…)

Whilst Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair's new A/W 10-11 collection had just dropped into store when I was there last week, I knew I was going to be honing into the S/S 10 Liberty prints that had so pervaded my head when I a) got a pair of Liberty print Clarks boots that had used the same print and b) discovered that head to toe in the stuff isn't such a far off apparition given that more and more pieces have been creeping in, perhaps not directly from Liberty themselves but through the many collaborations they do.

Anyhow…along with the case, the shoes which are the wedged up version of my Clarks boots also came back with me in order to fulfill what is an inevitable onslaught of ditzy florals and paisley swirls…

  1. i’ve been missing having a thorough look at your style pics. the more i see street style blogs the more i realize you’re very unique – and i love your style more and more! 🙂
    keep going girl.

  2. The ongoing theme of ditsy print and paisley combine beautifully, and you have a lovely smile. I’m liking the skirt and the suitcase in particular! It all has a very ‘naive’ and ‘innocent’ feel, like a young girl from the 60’s on her very first adventure.

  3. I love it!!!!!!!!
    Susie it cost ¬£70+ to renew an adult passport, I know it’s super expensive compare to 10 years ago where I’d paid like what…¬£45??

  4. Stunning pattern combination and just surprising that the allover look is not overdone and too much on top.It is just gorgous and romantic in its millefleur graphics.

  5. i LOVE this outfit! i love the luggage and the shoes….as soon as i saw those shoes i thought ‘i HAVE to have them…they epitomise everything i love about footwear….’ …….no size 38 in either print! ARGHHH!!!! *shakes fist!*

  6. looove your suitcase and shoes? fifth avenue shoe repairs prints are soooo nice. i was about to buy their hat, now i totally regret that i didn’t.

  7. Amazing luggage! The kind that would look awful in the hands of someone not very into fashion, but together with your fantastic outfit, it looks creative and fun! I love that your style is so different and creative! 🙂 Amazing inspiration to the rest of us!

  8. Oh my I am in love. I love how you mixed up all those patterns, the oversized suitcase and i want your wedges. Just amazing!! <3

  9. We’d love to hear more about the Clarks boots. We recommend them all the time at because of their comfort. What do you think about their style and design?

  10. You have no fear when it comes to fashion that is so rare to see. Everything your wearing looks great. The shoes are really the icing on the cake.

  11. Hi Susie,
    I LOVE that suitcase. I WANT that suitcase. SO jealous! It’s beautiful.
    Liberty does some similar ones, but smaller. They were £45 when I first discovered them, but the prices have gradually been hiked up to £48 and now £60! Still worth it though.
    I blogged about them back in May:
    And you can buy them online at Liberty’s website:
    Enjoy your travels with that case!
