Hello, Summer!

I’d like to introduce you to my new favourite top! I thrifted this nautical wonder on my most recent vintage spree. I am a sucker for most collars; with sailor being my absolute favourite! It’s extra cheesy too – and has ‘waterfront’ written across both arms. I’m wondering whether it’s actually a pool employee top, but either way I’m not bothered! For today’s jaunt, I paired it with red lipstick, my signature bowler hat, tassel loafers, and a vintage button-down skirt. We ventured across a narrow bridge and onto the park, as it felt time for another film photography adventure! I spent most of my time looking through the Holga (I don’t even take the lens cap off mostly – I just loving seeing how things look through it!)

The weather in Christchurch city has recently become incredible! I’m sure you know by now that I am completely useless with the cold, and resort to wearing tights in most weather – but not anymore! The sun has come out, and I’m excited. I’m looking forward to more outdoor adventures, and making the most of the summertime flowers. Bliss!

  2. Weather looks perfect there. And your photos captures it at its best. Lovely blog and loving your outfits. Was browsing through your posts and enjoyed reading it.

  3. It’s great a summer-y outfit that isn’t too revealing. The grass and the relaxed feel of this shoot definitely make me long for some summertime. Enjoy it.
    P.S. I’m sure you’ve mentioned this before, but what is your shade of red? It’s deep, matte yet still seems to have a faint lustre-I’m jealous.

  4. This outfit is perfect head to toe! I love the red lipstick on you as well. The bag looks great too. Little bit jealous of your ability to go bare legged though, it’s still freezing here in the UK. Fingers crossed we get an early spring.

  5. Aw, beautiful as always, and that top is an absolute treasure – isn’t it the best when you can find something so wonderful through thrifting?! Eee, I always get so excited!! Hope your Sunday is delightful. xo veronika

  6. I am so utterly jealous of that top. It’s amazing! It looks fantastic with the red lipstick- what shade are you wearing?

  7. Hi!
    I just discovered your blog today, and I love it already! This outfit to completely adorable- and its level of nautical awesomeness is off the charts. I can’t wait to see what you’ll wear next. : )

    Have a great day!
