vintage watermelon


This summer has been all about remixing things that I have in my closet instead of buying new things. Now, while I did buy a couple items, I think that in terms of clothes I've been really good balancing my spending. Shoes is another issue...but I really did need shoes or else I would have been walking around bare foot.
This vintage floral blouse that I'm wearing has made many appearances on my blog and in various ways. I actually first wore it last summer around the same time, and ever since, it's become one of those items that remixes really well. Whether I wear it over a slip, a dress, tucked into shorts or a skirt, it's just an incredible piece. I still haven't worn it with pants, which I suppose will be the next thing that I do.

Minty green and pink, I absolutely love the colours in this outfit.

I woudl never guess that that is a blouse, first a thought that it was a jacket. one of these summer jackets.

You look really nice and that dress is super cute.

Oh the mint and the pink really do work so well together.

I have not been so good about remixing and limiting spending this summer. But I think I've reached my max and will go on a shopping diet very soon!

Casey said...

You are seriously a pro at remixing your clothes! I'm quite bad at it myself. I have a closet full of clothes but I always feel like I need to have more or I have nothing to wear. At least I've made it an almost solely thrift store shopping summer this year!

At first, I thought you were wearing a blazer. This floral shirt is so pretty and I like how you've matched it with this green dress and pink top. Lovely, can't wait to see how you wear it with pants too.

i love the mint green of your dress! i got a skirt from american apparel in that colour the other day and i can't stop wearing it! (which is quite unfortunate really, it's got a chocolate stain on it already :( )
and the eiffel tower dress is from topshop. i got it in the sale about... three-four months ago now? there might be some on ebay. i know that alexa chung has it too (:
ps, sorry i haven't commented for aaaaaaages, been a bit crap at keeping up with blogs i follow recently. xxx

I love a good wedge heel ! And the floral pattern on that blouse is just enough to give this outfit a little extra oomph.
