pale blue dress, white button detail

Photobucket

It finally happened today. I am suddenly over summer. Over it! I want colder weather, and softer daylight, and black black black black in my clothes. Suddenly pale and soft and simple and light is just blah blah blah blah. (Of course by November it will be pale and soft and simple and light yes yes yes yes!) It was hot and really windy today, and I needed my hair off my face... hair cut time! And so, another little summer dress. I like the white button detail, it's got a bit of the '80s does '40s in a good way about it. Oh, and do you know what else? I am really looking forward to wearing shoes in colours other than red. I love my red shoes, but variety is good, too. I have my eye on some purple ones. Should I, shouldn't I, should I... xxx

Ultra cute! I wouldn't have thought of putting pale blue and red together but it works very well (guess it depends on the shade). I am kind of looking forward to winter too - but I have quite a few summer dresses I haven't had a chance to wear yet (I have waaayyy too many clothes!) so hopefully the weather won't get really cold too soon. Best, Maria, Vintage Suburbia x

Completely wonderful photography (and looking fab as always!)

Your dresses are always so beautiful! And I love all the red details, and your hairdo.

Emily Kennedy said...

Yes to purple! A good purple looks great with baby blue. I also love purple and black.

Charlie said...

you look amazing as usual! :)

BaronessVonVintage said...

Hehe, just as you are ready for the winter, I am ready for SPRING! Love your look!

Danielle said...

Gorgeous pictures and you look beautiful, as always :)

Kelley Anne said...

These photos are incredible! They look like something out of a vintage vogue issue. I love all of the mirror shots and your red, red lips. And your hair is just perfect!

that dress is very sweet and I adore your hair! isn't it funny how you are longing for fall and over here I'm eager for spring! lets trade?! haha! ;o)

Faux Naif said...

this is just beautiful! winter is ending here, so i'm looking forward to everything you're getting tired of!

Sal said...

I'd be more than happy to send you the snow and blustery cold we're having up here ...

tess said...

your red lips are great

it find it funny that halfway across the world you're on an entirely different season than I am, so while you've craving cool weather I want sun and shorts haha. Oh well, i feel like we always get sick of the seasons we are in at the time, it is a vicious cycle. I cannot imagine what it must be like to live in California or a place where the seasons hardly change

I like purple, will be a good fall colour and I treat it as a neutral if it's a nice eggplant. Meanwhile, here, I am sick of the cold and am jealous of the warmth these photos emit. Trade?

P.S. Thank you for linking me!

I will gladly take your summer! Winter is interminable here but at least this winter there is a bit of sunshine. Purple shoes sound beautiful! I have a pair of purple boots that everyone laughs at me for wearing but I wear them everywhere. I also recently got sick of mary jane shoes and I thought that would never happen! Your dress is so pretty and even though you are probably sick of pale, delicate dress I can't get enough of them in your photos!

I know just how you feel!! I already have my eye on the stop staring lula dress in eggplant. I found some gorgous aubergine coloured shoes to go with it.
I have the same shoes you're wearing today! I picked them up in Target for $5! They're just so comfortable and cute for everyday wear. I did want some black ones aswell but the Target near me had sold out! x

layia said...

i love your dress by the way. the details are cute!

Lovely hair and dress!

Eyeliah said...

rubyslippers_86 said...

cute dress and beautiful pics! and my motto is you can never have to may shoes, or chocolates, lol :-)

Sleekit said...

I love the changing of the seasons and the chance to air a whole new wardrobe...that pic of you with the mirror is stunning, your photography is sublime.

Your hair looks gorgeous - I may try to tame my locks into something like that today!

Particularly love the two photos in the mirror with the differing focus - lovely.

georgina said...

i agree, i'm over hot weather, time for some layering! love the outfit, and your hair is adorable :)

Stefanie Valentine said...

Cute outfit! And i think you should go for the shoes :) xx

Miss J said...

Just gorgeous. You say you're over red, but it looks great especially with the light colour dress.

I can't wait for winter either, i think it's just so that i can go shopping for gloves, boots, scarves. lol.

Ah well it is nice and cold TODAY and sufficiently dreary. :-)) Typical Melbourne contrast of course.

I say DO IT with the purple shoes! I bought a pair for summer and while I dont have much purple, it still worked.

Contemplating winter shoe purchases...I love black but its so boring...Navy is definitely my favourite - I have quite a few pairs but not ones for every day. Where to find!? Do you have any success with online shoe shopping?

Solanah said...

Wow, these are beautiful. (I think I say that everytime I comment, hehe).

I always love your use of color, never too much, never too little, it's ideal!

sunaina said...

You always look very pretty, you have the most beautiful dresses!

I like the shoes you pick. Love those peep toes. I would love to see those with your white socks. I love your earlier posts with the socks, as you have perfect ankles and legs for them. And I would love to see you wear shoes with other colors.

Le Tasché said...

What for a lovely posting, so reduced in colour to have the focus on your beautiful face an hairdo. We in Europe are so much looking forward to having warmer weather!

Andi B. Goode said...

I'm over Summer, too. I realised it's why I've been feeling so uninspired!
Pretty dress!

darlingdee said...

Esme your style makes me smile. Amazing!

Helen said...

want to swap seasons with me? i am so over winter! i really wish i could wear pretty summer dresses like that at the moment

Michelle said...

this dress is great, I adore it! And I'm loving your photography :)

I guess you're allowed to be over Summer, as you live in Aussie, but me - I wish it would continue! It's been so lacklustre here this year... a few warm weeks here and there, but thats about it..

(and by the way - you should)
