Me again! As promised I have some holiday snaps from our trip to Spain for your viewing pleasure. Now, as you can imagine, sharing your life with a photographer means every moment is documented so its never to be forgotten, therefore there are approximately one billion digital images of our holiday. This figure does not include the 11 rolls of film that are currently being developed as well. Fear not! Before you yawn and hit the little X in the top of your window, I promise that I have whittled the pictures down to only those relevant to this blog, i.e, those depicting vintage style. So without further ado, here is part one of my holiday wardrobe.
Owing to the fact that you can only take a limited amount of luggage on an EasyJet flight, and also being in a hot country, this is an excuse for me to wear less of everything; less clothes, less make up, less accessories, I decided to keep my holiday wardrobe pretty simple.
This first dress is a holiday staple. It actually belonged to my mum and dates from the 70s, but it has that classic 'across the decades' feel to it. I love the mix of crepe and lace. I am teaming it with Swedish Hasbeens and Ray Bans
This is a 50s peasant style skirt that belonged to my girly Bethan, mixed with a cheapy non vintage cotton peasant blouse
I bought this gorgeous little peasant top in Cyprus on holiday a few years ago. It was perfect for an evening out watching Flamenco dancing! The black and white gingham skirt is from a 3 piece 50s set recently acquired from Etsy. The matching blouse can be seen in the last picture below, and there is also a matching 1/2 sleeve shirt. Amazing!
This is my What Katie Did bikini. The piping is very pale pink and its actually a halter neck but I tied the straps down to avoid tan lines. I absolutely love the fit of this bikini, it's incredibly flattering
One of my favourite 1950s summer blouses, with bow tie straps and buttons down the back. I love my tutti frutti earrings that were a birthday gift from my gal pal Gemma
Paired with the same peasant style skirt as above, and Miss L Fire platforms
I am drunkenly leaping in what has to be one of my favourite skirts. I bought it from Pop Boutique in London about 5 years ago for an absolute steal. I believe it to be recently hand made from what appears to be a heavy 1950s fabric, which could almost have been a curtain. I am wearing smelly old Espadrilles from Schuh
My travelling home in the middle of the night outfit includes my absolutely favourite recent purchase. I own about 6 pairs of Freddies, but these Pedal Pushers have to be my favourite cut and fit of all their jeans. My cute red sandals I bought in Spain.
The blouse is the one that matches the gingham skirt in the above post, and the beautiful Leica M3 is merely a borrowed accessory belonging to Le Photographer.
I hope you enjoyed Part One of our holiday album. I'm sure that when the film has been developed there will be many more!
We also need to talk hair very soon...as you can see from above my hair is much lighter than its usual jet black. This is due in part to the sun, but also to the fact that before I went away I had a perm which stripped some of the colour out. That deserves a whole post of its own though!
