Vintage florals

I’m in love with this vintage floral dress from Bygonefashionbyjane (Etsy). The cotton fabric is so soft and the pattern has some of my favourite colours.

This Summer has been crazy hot and getting dressed is more about surviving the heat than anything else. So I’m living in my comfy jersey pieces and relying on vintage accessories to jazz it up.

Date night

Date night is a great excuse to dress up, and I’m going out like this tonight. My dress actually came as a set with a blazer, but one that was too small for me. So I was happy to find this from LazyDayVintageNZ (Etsy)- it’s a perfect colour match. My amazing statement earrings are from ggdressing (Etsy).

Polkadots

I think polkadots are hard to get exactly right, the pattern can easily look either too cute or too kitschy. I love this dress from LazyDayVintageNZ (Etsy) however. The fit is a little oversized at the moment, but I’ll wear it like this for now and make it into a DIY project later.

I bought this vintage dress in Tokyo a couple of years ago. It was a little too big for me then, but now it’s perfect.

I always try to play with contrast when creating an outfit. Today I’m pairing a matte dress with a glossy belt. I’m also using my well-worn sneakers as a sporty element to dress down the elegant silhouette.

I’m dressed up in Scandinavian design for a dinner date with my boyfriend. I love the beautiful floral pattern on this dress from FWSS together with my elegant and comfortable new flats from Gestuz.

Saturday shopping

I finally got myself some Summer shoes! These are flat slingbacks from Gestuz. White is not the most practical colour, but I think it’s the most versatile. And I prefer to have only a few pair of shoes that I can wear with most of my wardrobe.

Nothing beats a vintage dress for a day in the city. My little blue bag is also vintage from Bygonefashionbyjane (Etsy).
