Sheringham 1940's weekend

Last weekend we went to  one of my favourite events of the "vintage season" (if there is such a thing!!)

Sheringham 1940's weekend is the 3rd week in September every year and it is like stepping back in time - the whole town takes part and people come from all over the country to ride steam trains, have picnics and dress in their best 40's outfits.

Although I wear my vintage every day it is not always possible to "really" dress up on a trip to the supermarket so this weekend gives me the chance to wear my fabulous hats and go to town with the outfit.

The weather was glorious and the sun shone so here are my weekend outfits.

Suit 40's original -Prim Vintage, 40's hat bought at Twinwoods, and blouse H&M.

Dress original 40's from Mamz'elle Swing Paris, hat Dress Circle Vintage, gloves Retreat Vintage, shoes vintage form Twinwoods and bag Prim Vintage.
I love being able to dress up and wear some fabulous outfits - Autumn is on it's way so more opportunity to wear my suits and hats so watch this space for outfit posts.

Autumn Style

Although I love summer I do adore it when Autumn starts to creep in - the chance to wear my favourite vintage suits, cute hats, matching gloves and a little fur around the collar.  It's those bright, crisp mornings that are chilly enough to need more than a summer frock but not so cold that you need to wear 10 layers to get warm.

You can get more inventive with Autumn outfits and I just love the fabrics - tweeds, wools, felt for hats and the softness of fur, the colours for me are also fabulous - rich browns, deep reds, forest greens and oranges mixed with neutrals in grey and navy.

Each season I put together my little look book with outfit ideas working with what items I already own and a few things that I may have to treat myself to just to update last seasons wardrobe you understand???

This season I am loving greys, and navy as a neutral mixed with peacock blue, rich reds, deep greens and purples.

I have a suit just like this, the hat and gloves so now to buy the scarf to finish the outfit off.

Just a few of the outfits I am going to be working this season - what are you planning to wear for Autumn???

Goodbye to Summer frocks and hello Autumn

We have been pretty lucky this year - the sun has shone and I have had a chance to wear some of my lovely summer dresses!! So before I start planning my Autumn wardrobe I thought I would share some of the fabulous outfits I wore this summer. We had lots of events, a trip to Paris and so far 3 weddings to dress up for.

Vintage dress Prim Vintage, fascinator by me and shoes Jimmy Choo.

Vintage dress bought in Paris, Hat Mamie Blue Paris, vintage bag and shoes Lulu Vintage.

Vintage dress by Travilla, shoes Jimmy Choo and bag Louis Vuitton.
Vintage dress - Shazam vintage and hat from vintage stall at Twinwoods (can't remember the name) and shoes Rokit Originals.

It has been so great to see the sun this year as we have had so many miserable ones recently - I love summer but also love Autumn clothes - the chance to wear my vintage suits, fabulous hats, matching gloves and a little bit of fur at the neck so now I will get to plan my outfits for the cooler months ahead.
