I’ll be honest with you – there’s no good reason for me to be up on a ladder picking lemons. There are plenty of lemons on the other side of the tree, easily reached from the ground. But I got out the ladder to take pictures of Rosie (she was sitting on the fence and I wanted to be up at her height) and I liked the look of it so much I had to include it in some photos of its own.
Like all the cute clothes I wear but didn’t make, this skirt belongs to Isabel. It’s vintage, from the 50s we think, and has obviously been hemmed up several times. I love the summery citrus print. Could there be a better skirt to pick lemons in?
