Hello Festival Season!
You know summer is here when the festival season is well under way right? As a festival virgin until a few years ago, I feel I have a lot to catch up on. Enter the glitter bombs, mud and dry shampoo….
Recently performing at a Party in The Park, I wore THE perfect jumpsuit that you NEED if you are going to a festival this summer. The Farrah Can Can Jumpsuit from Joanie Clothing is the only jumpsuit you need to pack this season. Wear it with a tee underneath if it get’s cold or without if you want to sun your guns. With adjustable spaghetti straps, ruffle feature to the neckline and a flattering wide leg, it ticks all the right boxes.
You are the sunshine of my life….
I love to spend time with my little family, it is the sunshine to my soul. A week or so ago we spent some quality time in snazzy Blackpool by the sea. Time to relax and unwind is always welcome. We packed up, left home early and were on our way. We started to walk from the car park to the sea front, there are so many run down buildings there. It is such a shame to see many bed and breakfast’s like this. But, if you look hard enough – there is beauty in everything.
Imperfection in pretty pastels.
Something about bright colours makes me stop in my track and reach for my camera. My heart wants to remember that moment I am in by being able to look back on a photo. I am quite pleased that this sunny yellow house cohabits next to this baby blue one. I think they compliment each other perfectly.
Daisy. Daisy, give me your answer do. I’m half crazy all for the love of you. With the words of Nat King Cole ringing true in my ears, I am head over heels for daisies right now. Daisy the flower that is, not Nat King Cole’s sweetheart Daisy. Having worn flowers in my hair in the more traditional “pin up” fashion for quite some time now, my collection is quite large. Being a mum and leading a busy life, sometimes you just need to whack your hair up quick and pop a flower in.
Becoming a Mum.
When I first had my little girl, I didn’t have as much time as before she was born to perfect my hair and makeup. Now don’t get me wrong, I still made time. But I was an instant fan of anything that was quick and effortless. I still am. Being a working mum, I need to go from tired to tidy in 0.3 seconds if possible. Wearing my hair in beehives and half up half down styles recently has got me thinking. How can I wear flowers in my hair with a more sixties twist? Or even more of a seventies vibe if that’s your era.
With the seventies being firmly in the fashion spotlight right now, there are frills and flounces pretty much everywhere. I favour more structure. The tailored fit of the fifties and sixties is still my unwavering true love. Having a natural hourglass curvy figure, relaxed 70s boho feels just do nothing for me. All these big baggy Bardot type shirts that are around seem to drown the smallest part of me and put emphasis on the largest!
With Easter fast approaching, just what do you wear for the bank holiday that is more: classy Easter Chic(k) than a fluffy Easter Bunny???
Transitioning my autumn wardrobe into spring is always a task in itself each year. My heart says pretty pastels and bare legs but the weather outside says stick your tights back on quick. Being “typically British” – even a sniff of sunshine has me planning ice cream trips and country walks in sundresses with jelly shoes. Only to be severely let down once stepping out my front door.
When its spring, still freezing outside and you want to get your legs out, what do you wear??
I have collected original and reproduction vintage for about four years now. One of my favourite reasons for doing so is the romance and story behind each piece. When your wardrobe tells a tale, it is a beautiful thing. View Post
