Nice day for a picnic.

Went on a picnic, on an incredibly gorgeous day. Got some outfit shots before I left but, as usual, didn't take any photos when I was there. So, despite the title, you don't get to see any picnic photos. Does anyone else have this problem? Plenty of photos of yourself (taken by yourself, usually) but so few of others? Or of you with other people? Ah well - at least I remembered to take outfit shots because I was rather pleased with this outfit.

Outfit details: hair scarf - church op-shop; sunglasses - Dangerfield; cherry earrings - made by me; top - ASOS; bangles - various; 1950s/60s skirt - stall at Kustom Kulture Weekend; 1950s shoes - etsy.

I really love this top that I bought on sale from ASOS - It has button holes on the ends of the straps so you can wear it as a 'regular' top (or, I suppose, with criss-cross straps) but I think it looks a lot better as a halter top.

This skirt was bought at a stall at the Kustom Kulture Weekend back in March, I think - I was immediately attracted to the pom-pom trimming. Combine that with the gorgeous shade of green, pockets, and buttons and I was sold! I can say, however, it's not the best for eating lots of yummy food in - felt a good deal tighter on the way home than it did on the way to the picnic. Maybe something with a looser waistband next time would be more comfortable.

I've got a couple more blog posts to write up for this week, which I'm hoping to squeeze in between yet another essay. Until then, I hope you've all had lovely weekends because mine was really rather good.

Love,

  1. That top is gorgeous! I totally thought it was vintage until I read your outfit rundown. And I do the same thing with photos.. we always bring the camera everywhere (and with smartphones, even if you forget the camera you still technically have one) but never seem to remember to take photos once we step out of the house! :p

  2. That top is incredible and I can honestly say that, if I were just browsing ASOS, I would have skipped straight past it because it looks really bad on the model. On you, however, it looks beautiful.

  10. Sigh, I have that problem all the time. I get embarrassed taking photos out and about or just forget, so often it's just the same ol' me standing in the same ol' spots in my house. Ha ha.

    LOVE the outfit. The pom pom trim is totally swoon-worthy. It makes me want to add it to something! The top looks awesome as a halter. All very fun for a picnic!
