Ahhh winter in Queensland! This week I’ve been to the beach and swam in the ocean – which most people wouldn’t generally do in winter, but it was wonderful, perfect even – apart from a lone shark that turned up and cut our swim a little short! I still wasn’t over my beach kick however, so the next day we drove to another beach which was more of the promenading sort, to take in the sea air and eat fish and chips.
When it comes to outfit inspiration, a lot of the time when I am going through vintage photos, certain outfits stick in my mind and I become determined to recreate them or at least inspired to find something similar. I have been on the hunt for the perfect 30s style trousers for a while now and so I was very pleased to get a hold of these ones that are so similar to ones I have seen in vintage photos! Same thing with these sunglasses which are just like some I saw on the cover of a vintage Vogue.
These trousers are an absolute dream to wear! They actually feel as soft and comfortable as the pajama pants I wear at home, which is pretty fabulous considering they are outside clothes! Since I am quite short, I had them taken up – which is something I have accepted is going to be the done thing now that I am into wearing pants – and that’s just fine!
