STYLE: Vintage Florals




Gosh, I haven't posted an outfit in five months. As a fashion blogger, that's surreal - you must have thought that I stopped wearing clothes. I finally decided this week, after months of camera frustration, that for taking pictures maybe I should just use my perfectly acceptable god damn phone instead; magically, the lack of light was no longer an issue, the photos looked better, and everything went ten times smoother. Sometimes the easy route is the best. 

I haven't shown a vintage look on here in even longer; they do sit somewhat incongruously next to the rest of my very black wardrobe, but given how much time I spend Lindy hopping (and how much I love vintage) it's a division I don't mind. This gorgeous 1940s inspired floral playsuit seems particularly appropriate given the recent Spring Equinox; I leapt at it in a new look sale with the plan of wearing it to dance workshop socials, but quickly realized my mistake of not checking the tag. Never wear polyester at over 200 beats per minute. 

I do get wear out of it however, even if it's still a little cool for bare legs. It's not very goth of me, but I love Spring - it gives me so much energy after sleepy, wet winters, and a drive to get outside and get moving.



How is everyone else finding the change in seasons? Do you have any clothing that you ended up wearing for different reasons than you bought it? Let me know below!

    1. Wow, thanks! It's something I've always loved, but I've definitely got more into it over the past few years.

  3. So very, very lovely. I go weak in the knees for olive/khaki and orange together. They're an intoxicating blend of earthy and vibrant.

    This playsuit is a gem and looks fantastic on you, sweet lady.


    Happy start of springtime wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

    1. Thank you, Jessica - you always leave lovely comments! Though I rarely wear an outfit that isn't black (or at least has some!), I do really like the colour combination too.

  4. Very cute! I love the pattern of the fabric - the orange floral on the deep green is really lovely - and the shape suits you perfectly. I've never found a playsuit that suited me so well, but photos like this make me want to keep trying!
    It is funny how sometimes, after ages struggling with something, everything just comes out the way you want it to, with no muss or fuss. I'm glad you were able to capture some photos, especially ones this cute.
    Cheers!

    1. It is possible, I swear! I really like playsuits and jumpsuits for their ability to be an entire outfit in one piece of clothing - so I've gained a few.

      Thank you!
