It’s late August however I’m not able to let go of summer season but! And with the August financial institution vacation weekend predicted to be sunny and heat, I’m hoping for one final river swim earlier than the top of the season and holding on to my sundresses and solar hats. Final weekend, I wore this sweetest of summer season attire for slightly journey to the Northumbrian market city of Rothbury. We’ve pushed by means of Rothbury a number of occasions on our approach to Cragside and Wallington, and I’ve at all times needed to shoot some pictures towards the charming shopfronts and homes.
My total outfit has been gifted by Very.co.uk (apart from my hair bow, which I made!) Very has so many pleasant sundresses and maxi attire in for the time being which are simply excellent for summer season holidays or a daytrip to a picturesque market city like this. It was exhausting to choose only one however ultimately, this Monsoon gown in probably the most darling retro print had my coronary heart. Everybody retains saying that twee style is making a comeback however for me, it by no means left. I leaned closely on the cutesy retro vibes with a purple bee crossbody bag and cream espadrilles, each additionally from Very, and completed the look with a me-made hair bow and purple lipstick. Matte purple lipstick and winged liner is my go-to make-up look once I need I need to exude retro vibes with out going into an excessive amount of fuss. And my curling iron waves ended up trying like a messier model of pin up curls, which is the closest to pin up hair I’m ever going to get!
Concerning sizing, I’m sporting a measurement 20 within the gown and a measurement 8 within the sneakers. In hindsight, I ought to have sized right down to the 18 within the gown because the 20 is at present a bit too unfastened for me and that is meant to be a fitted model. When you have a look at evaluations of this gown on Very and Monsoon, you’ll discover lots of people saying that it runs small, however that hasn’t been my expertise in any respect – I really feel that it’s fairly true to measurement. The espadrilles felt a bit tight on my considerably huge toes at first (I can put on each huge widths and common, relying on the shoe) however after a little bit of strolling, they stretched out and had been completely comfy all day.
I hope you loved this old skool outfit publish! I miss the times once I’d dissect my appears to be like and focus on sizes and match on this weblog, and I feel I must convey it again. In any case, twee style and outfit dissection is how I began running a blog all these years in the past!
