flowers on the wall...

Yesterday I had a few hours all to myself. Plans for a picnic fell through, so instead I took a walk down Brunswick Street. I tried on a pair of shoes (no good) but I did find a tea dress. My tea dress has flowers on it, too.

grey wool cardi from Witchery, silk bow blouse and long grey socks from Forever New, navy skirt and tan shoe-boots from flea market, pale pink silk slip from Savers (yay find!), bag from Clara Fox

I wore my new silk bow blouse, with a navy skirt and that grey cardigan – yep, that one. I also wore grey long socks with no tights – it was that warm! This outfit reminds me a lot of the cherry blossom girl's mini collection, which is very much my cup of tea. I'd love to get a couple of those pieces, but living so, so far away, I don't think it's possible. The song that goes with it was in my head, and so it follows that we headed down to the rail tracks... but, happily, I am not singing a break up song.


I had no idea it was so hard to balance on the rails! The light isn't exactly perfect, but what can you do? Such is life.

Train track balancing looks hard and scary too!

I hadn't seen Alix's mini-collection (though I am looking forward to getting home from work to take a proper look at the video post of her new collection), but it looks like you'd fit in very well in that outfit, all you'd need in a Peter Pan collar. Yea, they're so sweet...

Krissy: hehe I had my eyes and ears very open... and thanks!

Skye: it was weird, because in the UK train tracks are electric, and one would NOT want to be standing on them! :D

Louise: her collection is very much my cup of tea. I actually have two peter pan collar dresses (and am considering a third, currently at a vintage shop) and I just really like them! :)

The bow blouse is so cute. I find that even keeping my balance on flat ground when taking pictures is hard! You did very well.

Oooh i really love that blouse now that its on!! You look amazing...

The Clothes Horse said...

Lovely look. I quite like the grey stockings with those brown shoes. I love railway tracks too, very photographically pleasing.

esme and the lane way said...

The Paper Doll: thanks very much! It might have looked very transparent in the pic hanging on my blind, but it isn't when on...

The Clothes Horse: thanks very much! But I didn't know the tracks would make people scared..! It's fun that they are so different to UK tracks. :)

Gorgeous outfit and setting as usual. Purchasing a tea dress, spring must be in the air.

Lady Melbourne said...

Goodness, I've been away and look at what I've missed!
Loved that 1940's style cafe, I think I might have been there before myself.
I love how these photos look quite remote but you're actually really close to town! Goes to show what a genius you are with your photography.
Beautiful as always.LM
