sailor shorts and socks

sailor shorts3

We are in the last week of summer, and I think I should make the most of it. We had a lovely, fresh morning, but it soon gave way to the usual sunshine and heat. Errands to run, a bike to ride... and a very giggly mood. I couldn't stop laughing when I was taking this tongue-in-cheek pic (inspired, of course, by the famous one) with the sailor hat – and what a feat of timer photo-taking it was! Feel free to laugh, too :D

Gorgeous outfit on you! I love it. You are simply stunning. Your hair is beautiful! Care to share the hair products you use? ;)

Louise said...

Gorgeous! I agree with Danielle - your hair looks divine.

Mecino said...

Cute outfit :) I especially love your black shoes - from Target! I must also pay them a visit soon....

Emily Kennedy said...

Giggly summer moods are the best! I really like this mix, and I'm kind of surprised because normally I wouldn't wear heels or socks with shorts, but on you, between the type of shorts, and wearing the heels and socks together, it really works.

Daisy Doom said...

Wow, I normally can't stand high waisted shorts but yours look gorgeous! Fabulous outfit .

Madame Bovary said...

the look is fantastic!

Talia said...

gorgeous shorts. I am looking for very similar ones but with the golden buttons. Do you think they would be suitable for such combiation as yours?

BaronessVonVintage said...

fabulous!!

Rūta said...

Very cute! It's impossible not to be jealous of how these shorts look on you. I love hight waisted shorts and pants but they (how to say) look "very average" on me =)

Esme and the lane way I love your blog.

Your personal style comes through quite strongly in the shots. I like the high-waisted shorts.

I'm interested to know where you get your inspiration from?

VintageGoa said...

You are GORGEOUS!
I'm lucky to find your blog.

Cute clothes. I especially love the way you have been working your white anklets into your outfits. I can't wait until it warms up where I live.

I love target. I was so happy when I was traveling the world this summer when I hit Indonesia, and then Australia, and suddenly there was Target like back home! :D

You're lucky you have such a good place to take pictures. That's something I need to work on.

Adorable outfit and your hair always looks great, too.

Claudia said...

Q's Daydream said...

love this! you're the prettiest! i finally just yesterday ordered those shorts in red. I wanted black but my size was sold out. I think I'll adore the red though!

Sal said...

You are looking deliciously pin-up in these shorts outfits, doll!

Lily said...

Soooo cute!!! I can't believe those shoes are from Target! Why can't I ever find anything decent there??

tess said...

amazing shorts, you look so pinup glam! amazing!

Kiri said...

Oh my goodness, I need a magic wand so I can duplicate your wardrobe for me! Your outfits and pictures are always so gorgeous!

Miss Emmi said...

Adorable! I will have to look for socks in $2 shops now, it's so hard to find bobby socks that don't have lace around the edges.

Target has so gorgeous shoes in at the moment (I should know - I work there! It makes it so hard to save money!)

Rosie said...

Looks like you had a lot of fun! Enjoy that summer weather for me!

Treacle said...

Hello, I've just came across your blog and I love it. Your outfits and hair and all the shots are so perfect, it's a pleasure to look at them! :)

Oooh those shoes are awesome. Are they comfy? I am definitely in need of a few new pairs (its the turning season makes me start planning ahead).

I love the cute shorts, and paired with the ankle socks - adorable!

Ms Vitriol said...

I just had a look back at your blog from its inception, your style has certainly evolved. I like the choices you're making now, very confident.

Andi B. Goode said...

Haha, I love that last photo! Very impressive. And a gorgeous outfit.

Vintagesuburbia said...

Wow, what great legs you have! You must tell us all how you maintain your figure. I find keeping my weight down in order to fit into TINY vintage clothes is always a bit of a struggle, particularly as I am so partial to wine and chocolate. Hope to catch up with you soon, Maria, Vintage Suburbia xx

esme and the lane way said...

Thanks so much for the lovely comments. I was a bit worried that no one would see the funny side! Glad you did :)

Danielle: I've been meaning to do something of a hair post for aaaages, as I keep getting emails and what not and although I'm not an expert, I have something to add. So I will, soon :)

Emily Kennedy: it's part cute, part practical: I'd ruined the back of my ankles in sandals the day before. Ouch!

Talia: with gold buttons sounds cool. Could you get a pair and then add the gold buttons, if you can't find them ready made?

Miss J: thanks :) in this case a Vargas (or possibly Elvgren, ut I'm sure it's a Vargas) pin up sailor girl. :)

Peggy: hehe I'm glad!

Q's Daydream: ahh I love the red ones too! :D

Miss Emmi: cool, I should get down there now. I need some winter shoes, need need need :) And the $2 socks are magic! Mine are still v white and springy... I wish they sold decent underwear now, too! Alas, their knickers are frightening :<

KittyMeow: hehe me too. They are super comfortable, and didn't even need breaking in. They are my walking n the rain shoes!

Ms Vitriol: I know. Sometimes I want to start a new blog, but not too much :) Thanks :)

Vintagesuburbia: I love wine and chocolate too! And cheese... I am trying to lose the few kilos gained from Boring Job. Bah!

Romeika said...

You look darling!!!

This Carole Lombard picture instantly reminded me of you:

You look so adorable! I love that last pose. I agree with everyone else, i wish i looked as good as you in high waisted shorts! xx

Solanah said...

I've come to the conclusion that you'll never age, you'll just get cuter. Seriously, these are adorable.

Michelle said...

I wish I was a sailor so I could have you as my pin up! =D

I love EVERYTHING about this outfit: your hair is so perfect I can't believe you're human, and the shorts are great and the top is just such a nice shade and the idea with the socks is great and I LOVE YOUR SHOES. How does it feel to know that every reader of this blog would kill for your wardrobe? Greetings from Germany!
