hot house flowers


It is still pretty warm here in Melbourne. I have really fallen for playsuits, and today, in the steamy 38C (100F) heat, I wore my most recent addition, which has a little flower print. I checked on how my garden flowers are doing (not too well) and picked a few for my hair. And then the wind changed, there was one rain drop, and then two, a streak of lightning... a summer storm.


The picked flowers don't last too long out of water, so I put them in little vases and used some paper ones for my hair instead.


I had planned to take some pictures outside, but went back home to wait it out instead.

I love your jumper! It is so lovely, and you look wonderful in it! I love your hair brown by the way!
Pretty pictures!

Your playsuit looks beautiful and your pictures belong to the world of reverie and dreams...I'm also in love in love in love with playsuits right now, even though it's winter where I am. I just posted on my blog about this amazing Brooklyn indie fashion label that recycles vintage fabrics (like 50's bedsheets and feedsack and silk!) into beautiful vintage inspired playsuits.

If you are interested, please take a look at my blog: Fashion for Writers , and the blog post about the playsuits is here!

I do love playsuits, too. I may have to go poke around some shops because it seems like they may be 'in' this summer and I can stock up on them. ;]
Yours is very cute.

You are so lovely! Dreamy, magical shots.

Oh and don't you love summer storms? I remember an amazing storm when I was in Spain. Thunder. Lightening. But so warm. I tried to take photos but couldn't capture it.

KittyCate said...

Beautiful! I LOVE your hair that colour, it really suits you. x

Kelley Anne said...

Oh this looks like a spread from Lula with the ethereal lighting, floral motif and pretty makeup. I love your romper.

I'm so glad you've started blogging regularly again, I've been reading back through and catching up on your posts, so lovely! I loved seeing you transition from brunette to blonde and back again. These photos capture the essence of spring perfectly - very ethereal, warm and glowing. Like a perfect day :)
(not something we've been having lately.. but nice to dream about nonetheless!)

thesecretrose said...

I love your pictures, really beautiful :)

Bucca said...

love the flowers in your hair! very cute look

esme and the lane way said...

Eve: thanks so much!

Jenny: thanks! :D I read that post, they are beautiful playsuits for sure! I think I might be wearing playsuits with tights when winter comes... :)

Andi B. Goode: aren't they good?! I think there are loads about, this is my third one – I will post the other two, though, when it warms up again! They are both from vintage-inspired labels, so quite different to this one.

Helen: thanks :) v girly. My hair has been all hard styled for so long I felt like being a flower child for a day :)

Silverbeige: thank you! Unplanned! :D

Christina: thanks! I love it too, it's like I was never blonde :)

Ruby Roulette: thanks very much :)

Sal: gosh, thanks! :D

FrivolousFlapper: thanks!

Anastasia: thanks! It is a big change, but I do love it. I hope to do some clearer pictures of it soon, too :)

McGregor girl: thanks! I love how they are called rompers! Cute! :D

Q's Daydream: thanks so much! It was good for that hot day. It's so extreme here :) Today is cold!!!

Harriet: thanks! If it makes you feel any better, it is really cold again here :< no spring for us! :D

vintageveggie: hehe thanks :)

jacqueline amy: thanks! Oh grey silk sounds beautiful.

daisy lane: they have the same one in a gorgeous pale print, it was hard to choose. Actually FN is the ONLY new shop I seem to go in, and it is surprisingly good! I almost feel guilty about it ;D

Laurel: aw thanks so much! I LOVE storms! More light shows please! Unfortunately this one ended up being really destructive – but a big-but-harmless storm would be GREAT! That one in Spain sounds beautiful!

KittyCate: thanks! I really love it too, I am really happy with it. And I thought it would take me a while to get used to it – nope! :D

Kelley Anne: thanks so much! I couldn't even photo my make up properly, better luck next time for me I hope :)

thevintageyear: thanks very much! It has been rather hot for Spring – after it was really cold, and now it has been tropcial-rainy and cold again! extreme! But yes it is nice to dream about perfect weather, for sure :)

thesecretrose: thanks so much :)

Bucca: thanks! A little girly break for me :)
