I was planning on having a few more photos in this post. We visited the gardens around the Melbourne Museum (I can never remember what they're called) and had some nice photos of the beautiful fountain, but something went wrong. When I was downloading my photos from my phone to the computer yesterday, it deleted the photos but didn't download them (oh hooray), so I've lost a whole week's worth. I think they must still be stored somewhere but I don't really know where, so I've accepted that they've gone, at least for now, and have been practising my serenity without giving up all hope whilst really looking forward to getting my camera back from the repairers. I think that's some pretty good multi tasking. These are the only two pictures I have of the day from my Instagram. I'm @laneway_esme if you want to follow.
Anyway, I really wanted to post about this dress. I've had this vintage blue ruffled number for a few years now, and have been enjoying it even more this summer. I'm in such a carefree mood and feel like wearing ruffles and full skirts and colourful cottons. It's funny, as I did do some vintage shopping over the holidays (you know, I managed to squeeze some in) and I got a couple of wool wiggle dresses, very simple and serious. I am looking forward to wearing them but at the same time, I feel like wearing the complete opposite for the rest of summer, and want girly and light-hearted and flouncy and gingham. Who knows, maybe some ric rac! I'm even looking at square dancing dresses, which I never thought would happen. I think it makes sense, though, to have more than one mood for the year's wardrobe. What about you – do you find have very different moods with summer and winter dressing?
