Pleats and Pompadours

We may be having one of the hottest Junes ever, but no, I'm not currently sporting a polo-neck and socks... I'm just super bad at uploading photos within a sensible time-frame (I think this is the last of my transitional/early Spring looks- something more weather apropos is on the horizon). I've resorted to a bouffant to try and tame the unruly haystack atop my head; it's a throwback to my days of Gibson Girl hair-styling. I do enjoy the aesthetic and freedom that comes with short, and unstraightened hair, but the urge to grow it long and attain hirsute heights is constantly lurking below the surface. Anyway, I wore this look for a meal out; baggy trousers allow for extra dessert. Matching my Moorish antique tooled-leather bag with the vaguely Arabian pattern of my blouse, completed with lace-up shoes and galalith cameo.

Layered Lace

Pulled this lace blouse/waistcoat from the depths of my drawers as it layers so well over many things, not least my completely-overworn blush turtleneck (last outfit with this for now, promise). The oranges and reds nicely reflect the colours in my earrings which I have been haphazardly making recently; just simple tasselled designs, but its fun to custom make colour-palettes with my own wardrobe in mind. Shiny shoes demand a shiny bag, so I went for the smallest one I own. Still getting through a backlog of 'wintery' outfits from earlier in the year, hence the turtleneck in June; trying to keep on top of it, but at this rate you'll be seeing summer looks in the autumn šŸ˜£.
