What’s She Wearing?

Afternoon lovelies! It’s a beautiful and sunny day and I’m going to celebrate it by wearing a sweet summer 50s frock and by doing an outfit post!  🙂 I’ve only done two outfit posts so far for this blog, so it’s definitely time for another.

One of my favourite kinds of dresses to wear in the Spring/Summer is a sheer 1950s shirtwaist dress. They’re light, airy, colourful and comfortable. So, let’s check out the one I’m wearing!

  2. Thank you lovely ladies! Taking the photos was a bit of a ‘pick me up’ for me, as I’ve been feeling rather crap about myself lately.

    Jessica, I usually wear shorter late 50s gloves but just lately have been wearing the longer style. Love it. I’ll keep my eye out for a pair of red ones for you! I often come across them.
