Brownie Guide...

 With the sun shining and a lazy day planned I wanted something light and bright to wear this weekend. With a bit of help from Twitter, I picked this lemon blouse and copper skirt combination. It was only when I was looking back through these photos that I realised how much it looked like a Brownie uniform! I volunteer at a local Brownie group on a Monday night and obviously my time there is starting to influence my wardrobe..

Blouse: George at ASDA, skirt: Miss Selfridge, belt: New Look, shoes: Office
 I love the fluidity of this skirt, it is so light and the coppery colour ripples with the pleats.


 I picked this up as a bit of an impulse purchase at work and although it's a more casual shape for me, the gorgeous detailing and soft lemon colour meant I couldn't resist!


Teamed with my trusty leopard print belt, ,definitely inspired by the lovely Michelle with this outfit! She likes a good sheer shirt and a knotted belt! 


 ...and just for the fun of it, the Brownie salute!



Were you ever a Brownie? What is making you feel spring-like?

I loved the Brownies when I was little and would love to have an adult version, truth be told it's the uniform I'd want now. I love this modern take on the old classic. x

I love the skirt, it looks like its vintage. The fabric is lovely. I used to be a Brownie when I was little and probably still have my uniform somewhere! x

The skirt is so beautiful, and I love the yellow top. The 2 colours are a perfect combination: Brownie uniforms definitely got that right.

Such a great blouse - the colour suits you very well. I was never a brownie, but I did help out at a Rainbow unit while I was at uni - lots of making things and singing songs! xx

Perfect outfit... anything that is brownie-esque is a winner in my books!

Oh gosh you look like the perfect grown up brownie guide! I was a brownie and a guide - I have such a lot of happy memories from that time!

Oooh I really love this outfit. I've said it before how much I envy how well you pull off a midi, really wish I could do so without looking such a granny.
I was a Brownie, was a pixie then went onto the Guides. I used to love my Brownie uniform but got teased something rotten by the local kids if they seen me wearing it on my way to Brownies.
