Sunshine, blossom trees, flowers, summer clothes!

Yes I am happy Spring is finally showing itself around here. I think this is the first weekend I've ventured out without a cardigan for many months. I do wear a lot of cardigans though. I've had a very soothing weekend basking in the sunlight. Today was very lazy and we just wandered around town, had some pretty good lunch and lay in the park reading. My kind of Sunday. Although I meant to do some sewing/altering which I haven't quite managed. It's good to finally be able to wear this very 70s top. I found it maybe a year or two ago in a Devon charity shop. It has a matching high waisted maxi skirt with embroidery around the hem, however the waist is about 23 inches and so no good for me. One of these days I may make it a knee length skirt by taking the waist down but I have more pressing alterations before then. I am fond of the colour and the giant sleeves but I am quite uncomfortable in anything cropped so I had to wait until I found some high waisted jeans. Luckily my mother obliged by giving me an old pair of hers, I just took in the legs and now I have perfect high waisted jeans. I also think it's funny these are actual 'mom jeans'. I think I should probably have worn my clogs too, just to get a more 70s vibe altogether. Happy Spring everyone!


  1. Great top! I'm your newest follower after stumbling across your blog today and enjoying the last few posts. I have almost the same pair of clogs you do and dandelions have a very special place in my heart. I bet we have a lot in common. Please check out my blog if you have a moment! Thanks!

  5. That top is terrific! I was scrolling down secretly wishing it wasnt second hand though :(

    I am so happy spring is finally upon us, although the sun seems to have retreated again! It was coat and scarf weather for me today O_O! I have a sad niggling feeling that those 4 days last week was summer for England :( xxx

  6. Oh girl, I LOVE this outfit! That top is a beauty, I have a similar but crazier 70s blouse with huuuuge sleeves that I don't really know how to wear, but I think I need to find some perfect cigarette jeans and give this look a try.

  7. Amazing outfit and photos! I love it :)

  8. oh what a pretty top! i like the scalloped edges
