sunny sunday


sheer layered cotton dress – witchery, a couple of summers ago
cami – sportsgirl, also a few summers ago


The last three days have had prefect spring weather. Today I wore a Godess-style dress from a few years ago with a silk cami underneath, and those enormous t-bar platforms I love so much.


We went down to a park for a swing; it's nice there because from the swing all you see are trees, and it feels like you are far away from the city. Wouldn't it be nice if there were trees all around?





I realised when I wore it today that this dress is actually a little big for me (hence cami underneath for modesty as well as a little coour). While this might feel like a problem now, I know that when it's 43C degrees, I won't be complaining. Not about a loose cotton dress, anyway.

With the season feeling like it is really changing now, I am feeling as though my style is changing, too. I am becoming more and more interested in lady-like styles, cleaner lines and structure, with feminine details here and there; something I've always liked, but not as exclusively as now. I saw Vertigo again last night, and loved the style of Madeleine – this polish is something I'm feeling more interested in now. Of course it is not ideal for the hot summer months, but we'll see what happens. I found an amazing vintage hooded cape yesterday, which I promptly snapped up; it is dramatic and swishy and reaches almost to my knees, with button details along the shoulders, and I love it. Wearing it seems impossible right now (30C today! Ooh, I do sound like a weather report sometimes!), but some days under 20C are forecast, so you never know...

music my neighbour's friend practicing the flute; she's amazing at it (pro level) and it is lovely to wake up to

I really like this outfit, I think you work the mid-calf skirt length very well!

leah said...

I love the plait detailing on that dress. It's really lovely

Lady Melbourne said...

Nothing wrong with lady like my dear!
Your pictures just seem to get better and better every time I come here. Sorry I haven't been commenting much lately, it's quite difficult when you are travelling!

Love the ropy detail contrasted against the silky cami - such a fun pairing.

The Clothes Horse said...

That is a very pretty dress. I adore swingsets--it's the one playground ride you never grow out of.

Louise said...

I lovely the colours in these photos (especially the injection of orange with all that grey), and the whimsical look of your dress. Gorgeous photos again. Can I ask what kind of camera you use?

Grant said...

I love that Grecian-style Goddess dress Esme, and that Orange burst underneath really sells the whole ensemble.

Which Goddess do you think you'd be? I'm thinking Athena myself.

What an amazing detail on the back of that dress! It's gorgeous.

Like you, I feel that my style is drifting towards cleaner lines and structure. I wonder if this means we're growing up? :) Surely not.

Ms Unreliable said...

Beautiful combination, for some strange reason it makes me crave iced tea and cupcakes. I love springtime!

esme and the lane way said...

Nadine: thank you!

thevintageyear: thanks very much! It's not the easiest length, I must say!

leah: thank you :)

Lady Melbourne: I think I'm inspired by you! And thanks very much – I hope traveling is fun!

Sal: thanks!

The Clothes Horse: thanks! Me too, always have... I could swing everyday.

Louise: thanks very much! I use a little point-and-shoot camera, the Canon IXUS 70, and I highly recommend it!

Grant: thanks! Oooh, Athena, Godess of Wisdom – and crafts? I like the sound of that! :D

a cat of impossible colour: thanks! I think you might be right – it's about time for me at least, I'm 27!!! :D

Ms Unreliable: thanks! Oh, what a lovely thing to inspire, yum! Now I want a pretty iced cupcake too1 :)

Brigadeiro said...

Love the dress! A greek goddess roaming in the woods kind of look :)

I am so completely in love with this outfit! The plaiting detail, the light sheer cami - perfection!

Blogette: thanks very much!

lopi said...

I'm in love with that dress and the way you paired it with the orange cami. It may have been out of need for modesty, but it really brought the whole outfit to a new level!

esme and the lane way said...

heartofpearl♥: it was, and tomorrow is meant to be warm, too! Thanks!

lopi: thanks very much!

ashley said...
