Navy Clothes & Boater Shoes

Contrary to the title; I don’t even remotely have a case of the blues! The weather in my fair city has been hot hot hot, and I truly couldn’t be happier. Going into (almost!) full-time work has left me incredibly grateful towards warm afternoons, and I’ve been spending as much leisure time as possible outdoors. That being said –  I am still dressing in a ‘backwards season’ sense, and have found it hard to resist the allure of my white ASOS tights! They’re beginning to look slightly worse for wear, so I am planning on going a huge ASOS tights shopping spree – I desperately want a mustard coloured pair!

I am still obsessed with matching colours, and today I decided to coordinate my electric blue bowler hat with a similar shaded vintage dress. Just the thing for spending my day relaxing somewhat unconventionally seated on park benches. We ended up on a huge walk today; eighty minutes in fact! I used to be a regular runner, so figure it is a good way to ease myself back into it! ‘Ease’ being the appropriate word too; I am exhausted from just walking!

  3. Loving the blue beret! And the grey (or white?) tights so look lovely! Just yesterday I went out and bought six different coloured tights, and grey was one of them! I’ll definitely be taking inspiration on how to style them from here.

  4. I’m loving the hat.

    I wish it was warmer here so I didn’t have to pile on the layers and look like the michelin man.

  8. My oh my you look almost vixen-like in the first picture. You work it nicely, I’d just look silly trying to look even remotely sexy. I’m quite jealous of your hat too, an electric blue bowler would be welcome in my wardrobe…Lovely post and lovely outfit. =)
