red and blue

red blue j

Today is (was!) the second-last day of my holidays, and we had such perfect summer weather. I wore my new dress from Bernie Dexter. I love it! When I first saw it I think I actually did a little gasp. Red and blue is one of my favourite colour combinations, and that print is great! I love shelf busts, too. It's hard to find lots of vintage summer dresses (or at least I don't find them very often) and it is great to have plenty of pretty dresses (of course!) for the warmer months. (For all months!). It ended up being a very red and blue day – have a look!

We popped int to a few nice shops in Fitzroy. I got some stripy straws (candy cane!) and some nice wrapping paper – I am putting together a package that I want to make extra nice – from the lovely meet me at mikes. There are seagulls on it and I think they like those flowers and towers.

Then I made some stupid faces at the camera...

... and got ready to go on a bike ride.

Of course, actually riding a bike means wearing a helmet, so I had to take my hair down for that... this is my very blue bathroom.

The bike ride was great – but of course I went with two athletes and was exhausted by the end of it. Good thing, too – I ate very well over the holidays and am pretty, uh, full of Christmas cheer!

But not too full for fluffy chocolate milk. Yum.

Happy Tuesday!

That dress is gorgeous!! I once made a dress out of the same fabric, it doesn't look nearly as nice as yours though. This is one of the nicest pieces of clothing I've ever seen!

That dress is a dream! It's so hard to find dresses with a shelf busts that fit us tinier ladies. That fits you perfectly though! The print is fabulous!

And man, if that fabric came in wallpaper I think I would redo my bathroom with it. I love it on a dress, but I love it so much I would want to see it every day!

ooh you look so gorgeous!

You remind me of some sort of bubbly cocktail that is pretty and sexy, elegant and coquettish, summery and fresh all at the same time. I'd like to drink some in a tall, frosted glass with ice and a straw, please ;)

Penny Dreadful said...

Miss Emmi said...

Wow, the print on that dress is so nice! I wanted to add that I loved how you mentioned wearing a helmet as well, too many girls risk their safety because they think it's not stylish to wear one, so bravo!
