An elephant touch








































Yea, seems like an elephant has trashed my blog lately. ;) As you might have noticed I have been fiddling with  scary html and whatnot. Risky business Id say. :P Its a work in progress for a while yet so bear with me. :)







































I have for some time now wanted to make my blog to look more izzywizz style instead of using a freebie premade template. Im soooooo passed that.....*lol*  I have decided to join an online html and CSS (dont ask) blog course. Wish me luck!

























Speaking of elephants, Im actually wearing an elephant pendant necklace! :) Im a collector of animal pendant necklaces, my favourite animals being elephants and owls. :) Im really fascinated by both, so intelligent and wise animals. Watch out for more elephants and owls stomping/flying by. :)


























A close up of the necklace. Such a cute little fellow. :)

























And to sum it all up, a pair of workhorse pumps (I hope you are not tired of them). :)


What Im wearing:

Cardigan from HM (recent)
Top from HM
Elephant necklace from Oliver Bonas
Skirt from Mandco (new/sale)
Pumps from Pataugas

Im linking up to Visible Monday at Not Dead Yet Style.

  2. Hi Izzywizz! The top photo of your amazing heels is fab! Very nice outfit and I would not get tired of your turquoise shoes even if you wore them in every single blog post. Have a great week!

  3. Love the bright orange skirt with those pumps! I'm not tired of them, they're fabulous. Goodluck on the blog redesign. I've tried fiddling a bit with mine, but I'm not up on coding enough. Hopefully I can convince my computer savvy SO to fix up my blog one of these days.

  4. I love those pumps!

    Have fun with the re-design (I do like having the comment link at the bottom of the post, thank you!). I know enough HTML to play with things like tables in some of my posts, but just basic stuff.

  6. You are a braver soul than I to learn html. I know only the basics and am obliged to stick with the template provided to me. :(

    I also collect elephants!

  10. You're doing so well, redesigning your blog! I'm studying web design, and I haven't bothered to practice my html-skills on my own blog. It really is too bad! Is it a Norwegian course that you've followed, or American? Anyway, you done great!

    Personally I never tire of those turquoise pumps, I can't get enough of them! They go so well with so much of your clothes - and they would go with even more in my closet! Oh, and the elephant is so cute! He can come too!

    1. Wow, how cool that you are studying web design, Im sure you can learn me a trick or too! :) Actually I find blog tweaking both interesting and fun, Im quite overwhelmed over the endless options. :) I have just dipped me toe in colour theory, clip art/embellishments and such. I still havent got a clue in how to incorporate this to my blog though. :P Well I know about colour hex codes now at least, thats how I found this light pink background. :) Im gonna follow an American course and I have already downloaded another American course - its basically how to build a blog from scratch, just what Im after. :) I have already learned so much and looking forward to learn alot more. :) Ups, Im ranting, better stop before the comment section shut down. :P

      Im sorry you didnt get hold of the turquoise pumps, even my mother bought a pair on sale this summer. :) She wasnt too sure about when to use them though, she is still a bit afraid of wearing stand out shoes, so perhaps I can give them to you if she ends up not using them. Shoe size 39. :)

      Slett
  11. YES! I wear a size 39, if they're wide enough! If she wears them a bit first, and then get tired with them, there's an even better chance that they'll fit ME! But if she starts wearing them she'll most certainly fall in love with them, and end up wearing them all the time - looking great! Anyway, thank you for just having the idea!

  12. Wow. You look elegant actually (which I thought was in the post title; clearly my reading glasses are not cutting it). You have the gift of combining very different items into a marvelous, cohesive picture.

    1. Funny, I was actually playing around with the elegant/elephant title but ended up not using it, I dont have a way with words when it comes to English. :P Oh such a sweeet comment, Thank You!
