Detonation Boulevard

Seems like it's time for an outfit post, yes? Yes.

Sometimes it's the writing bit of blogging that's hardest, keeping it simple the week.
Words, who needs em?

  1. When pictures like this not only speak, but gleefully sing as well as a thousand words, you're free to skip them, dear gal, fear not. Goodness, do I love this whole wonderful autumn ensemble, as well as your beautiful hairstyle. That elephant brooch is really quirky and darling! It makes me think of my sweet mom, who has always had a fondness for pachyderms.

    Have a splendid pre-Halloween weekend!

  3. Lovely! I really like your hair and purse!

  4. Oh I love love love that suit! Autumn perfection outfit!

  5. The brooch, ahahahaha... Sorry. I might have loved about it too long. But it's just priceless. I just love kind of weird and kitschy brooches and circus themed things :-) Sehr süß!
    And your hair! Did you do this by your own? This is madness!

    Viele liebe Grüße!

  6. You look so sweet! I must steal your hairstyling - sorry :D

  7. The jacket to that suit is killer! A seriously great shape and style! Your hair also looks super cute, and oh, so does everything else... :)

  8. So cute! What did you decide on the name for the elephant brooch?

    1. I went with Babar! I don't know why it didn't occur to me from the start, as I loved those books as a child. It's the perfect name for such a dapper elephant:)

  9. I love the brooch, what a sweet addition to this outfit.

  10. You always look so put together and lovely ��
