Gingham & Grey...

Last week while flicking through the racks at Lucy in Disguise i found this adorable puff sleeve gingham dream, i of course wore it dancing that night and managed to do a fair amount of twirling... even if i felt that it was more suited to frolicking in green fields singing "the hills are alive".

There is something so "yes" about finding the perfect gingham dress..i have another one in pink which i have worn like crazy, i think it may be just as simple as this gal just loves a good pattern! I paired it with some super comfy flats and an Alannah Hill cardigan with the prettiest beading, it is so light and breezy so its perfect for this warm transition weather we are having at the moment!

We also have a long weekend coming up which i am so excited about i am launching something pretty wonderful will be doing lots of dancing and date nights with my love...also i am going to THIS event to style hair and do a dance performance too so things are about to get busy and brilliant! 

Happy Friday! Xxx

50's Floral...

This dress would have to be one of my favourite finds, my love and I spent a lazy Sunday afternoon last year in Memory Lane looking at all the pieces we could only dream of owning and then there she was, an original 1950’s handmade floral dream…and it fit. 

Although the corners of the bust needed a little TLC it was basically in perfect condition, I tried it on and then had to do the sad routine of putting it back on the hanger and walking away because my bank account was screaming “Ahhhhh NO” at me…but my love is one super sweet sneaky man and paid for it while I was sticking my nose into a pile of gloves and had no clue! Totally surprised me!! 

I wore it out on Saturday for coffee and a little vintage snooping before we had a little Valentines Day picnic, the breeze was perfect for a little twirling. I am also wearing a necklace that was gifted to me by my mother in law, I am trying to make more of an effort to wear necklaces and earrings…for some reason I always tend to shy away from them! 

I hope you all had an incredible weekend! Xx

Gingham Spin...

So Saturday we were up and about scouting a few places we could possibly have our big day at, it really was so fun to plan out a few things and brainstorm ideas on the drive, it has already become clear i may have to try and be a little more organised (and possibly remember to write things down) as its going to be a full year of fun DIY projects and sourcing things thats for sure!

Along the way we stopped at Woodbridge house and i decided spinning in the doorways was a good idea! I have always loved this old house, it has so much history and beauty surrounding it.

I found this gingham dream in my local op shop, it is an "80's does 50's" dress but still has the cute features i love like a good Peter Pan collar and pleating down the top, its all in the cute details i say!

I hope you all had an amazing weekend, after our Saturday it was just a blur of coffee dates and cleaning!
