Restyle: Speckled Sun

Photobucket Outfit 7

I love dressing up monochrome pieces with bright accessories i am like a bird attracted to bright shiny things sometimes!

I found this cute dress while spending a Saturday op shopping, i usually make a day of it, download some music on my ipod and go through every single rack. I find alot of nanna dresses but the print and high collar caught my eye and i instantly thought i could put it together with a pop of colour.

It's funny that my grandmother is still baffled sometimes as to why i dress like she used to but i know she loves it!! We occasionally sit and look through photos of when she was growing up and i am always so sad that she never kept any of her dresses they are so beautiful and i am sure it would have been pretty surreal for her to see her handmade dresses on her granddaughter, its definitely encouraged me to look after the amazing pieces of vintage i have to pass on to my daughter (god willing) one day (or son...you never know!) i love thinking that they will continue to be loved even when im gone.

As me and Z are keeping a low profile these days (saving..saving) we are finding entertainment in solid marathons of Breaking Bad and an attempt to cook more...on the cards tonight its Sarma...what have i got myself in for ahhh!!!

My grandma says the same thing to me! She told me that she kept none of her dresses, but I have made some of her handmade maternity stuff work (mostly with some belts.)

You look wonderful! Love the colors.

One of my favorite things is looking at old family photos, especially those of my great grandmother from the 30's and 40's. - And as always you look beautiful in your outfit. - Love the shoes by the way.
