By The River…

This is my favorite kind of outfit, what makes it a big favorite is that it’s made up of mostly vintage. I wore it at the weekend when my Daddy came to visit us in London, we headed over to Kingston for lunch by the riverside. Sadly the weather wasn’t on our side as it was really cold and windy! I was really glad I packed my cardigan, scarf & hat in my tote bag. I thought while packing them I wouldn’t need it and I was being silly for taking them but boy was I glad I did!

What I’m wearing –

Dress, Bag, Scarf & Jacket – Vintage

Hat – Topshop

Shoes c/o Zalando

Photos – Shooting Dave

    I like the forward thinking! I always seem to be caught out by the rain whether I am too cold or too warm

    Cute! It’s so hard to find vintage clothing in the right size. You were so lucky!

    These are great images. And your hair? To die for. Lovely, lovely, lovely.

    • April 20, 2012 / 12:35 am

      Yes – I was just thinking “I wonder if my hair could look like that?” The whole look is very sweet !

      • April 20, 2012 / 3:59 pm

        Mine could not. Ever. But a gal can dream…

      • May 7, 2012 / 11:02 am

        Mines not naturally this colour, all from a bottle! You could try it 😉

  5. April 19, 2012 / 7:45 pm

    Beautiful pictures! Love your dress too.

  6. April 19, 2012 / 8:27 pm

    Love how you bring out the red in the dress — even with your hair!

    Gorgeous…

    🙂

    I just found your bog and I’m hooked! It’s great to find other vintage loving redhead! You have so many amazing layers going on here but I’m most in love with your hat! Can’t wait to comb your archives for outfit ideas!

    Lovely look – very suitable for the wilds of Scotland!

  10. April 19, 2012 / 9:05 pm

    Wonderful! I find you very attractive, and stylish. 😀

  11. April 19, 2012 / 9:31 pm

    Great outfit, the layout of these pics remind me of a Japanese fashion site.

  12. April 19, 2012 / 10:54 pm

    I love your jacket! Has any one ever told you you look a lot like Adele?

  13. April 19, 2012 / 11:01 pm

    Beautiful outfit, but it pales in comparison to you–you’re gorgeous!

  14. April 19, 2012 / 11:10 pm

    You look lovely, I must say….

  15. April 19, 2012 / 11:20 pm

    you look beautiful and as a bigger woman I am wondering what size you are as you look beautiful and so womanly and I think I wnat you to be my role model

    • April 20, 2012 / 7:29 am

      I’m a size 14, can go down to a 12 and up to a 16 depending where I shop but usually buy a 14. Vintage is much better for my figure I find clothes fit better and don’t make me feel fat like high street stores do! Glad you like my style. X

      • April 20, 2012 / 8:13 am

        I’m a size 18 trying to get it down to a 16 maybe less … hard work ahead of me this summer :-). Has a lot to do with comfort eating (my dad died last year) but no more excuses and the gym it is. Just thought it was s nice to see someone with a beautiful figure look so lovely … no stick insect 🙂

        • April 20, 2012 / 8:33 am

          Yes I agree, when I first started blogging I was worried I’d get a backlash as I’m not thin but luckily I haven’t. I too have put on weight, think my move to london did it and I’m trying to eat healthy now to keep it at a controlled level. It’s hard work but will be worth it. Do you blog outfit photos? I’ll check out your blog when I get home. X

          • April 20, 2012 / 9:04 am

            No I don’t blog photos of myself … hate having photos taken, just blog about my mundane life, Been at it a month and really enjoying it 🙂

    Great Post and Wonderful Images. I just want to say congrats for being freshly pressed today. This was my first time in that club and want to shout out to all of you who share this great day with me.

  18. April 20, 2012 / 12:03 am

    I think people who rock vintage because they can truly appreciate an era of fashion are unique people especially when they know how to put it together…and you do. I like your style.

    • April 20, 2012 / 7:33 am

      I love buying second hand & vintage clothing, for one I find the fits better for my body shape and two it’s just much more fun and with exciting prints. Glad you like my style and that I can pull it off 😉 x

  19. April 20, 2012 / 2:52 am

    I like how your layered look still flatters the dress and makes its gorgeous pattern really pop. Very nice! Fab hat! 🙂

  20. April 20, 2012 / 2:56 am

    Love the pics and you look smashing 🙂

  21. April 20, 2012 / 3:05 am

    You got awesome style

  23. April 20, 2012 / 3:14 am

    So adorable! I love that you paired navy tights with this instead of the basic black.

  24. April 20, 2012 / 3:30 am

    I love the hat– such a great color to go with your hair. Though I must say, what makes the outfit is your coy and adorable smile! ‘You’re never fully dressed without a smile,’ as they say! Cheers.

  25. April 20, 2012 / 4:02 am

    I really love the colors in this outfit. So deep and subtle.

  26. April 20, 2012 / 4:16 am

    That is quite a collection of color and design, but somehow you make it look good.

  27. April 20, 2012 / 4:32 am

    Love vintage, love a bag big enough to keep emergency layers in!
    And I really love that circle brooch. It reminds me of one of my mothers that I am covetting!
    Cheers,
