The British Summer

The great British summer is most certainly upon us - the weather here today has been all over the place! It was cold and grey in the morning, so I went out to take pictures and, y'know, explore the garden (!). It started to brighten up while I was taking these. It was warm when I went to the post office, and now it's clouded over again since I got back. Oh yes, this is Britain.

It's been a really long time since I did an outfit post! Dress (it's not vintage but it looks quite 1940s, don't you think?), Charity shop; Jacket, hand-me-down from Joanna; Vintage ruched gloves, ebay; Curled feather cocktail hat, purchased in Thailand; 1950s handbag, ebay; Vintage dress clip (you can't see it very well, but it's a little bunch of grapes. It's sometime between 1930s-50s), car boot sale; Fishnets and Shoes, Marks & Spencer.

Back to work now...

  3. Very vintage, and very lovely.
    I wish I could say I was experiencing the British summer right now. It's first on my list of dreams.

  4. Love the style and color of your dress!! Your weather sounds a lot like the weather we have in Michigan in the States!! ;)
