pink cotton vintage dresses and pale pink curls

vintage pink cotton dress a Happy Monday! I hope you had a good weekend. Here is how my Saturday started, somewhat late – John and I are still trying to get our sleeping patterns back to normal and haven't had too much success with it yet – when I wore my new vintage pink cotton dress. It was even brighter than usual on a dreary, grey day. vintage pink cotton dress d vintage pink cotton dress c I set the curls in my fringe a little differently and was so happy with them, as my fringe didn't want to attach itself direclty to my eye quite as much as it usually does. I'll have to remember exactly what I did. vintage pink cotton dress e The happiest part of a Saturday morning: coffee! vintage pink cotton dress f And a very close second in terms of the happy – breakfast. Or brarvo, as discussed on Instagram: breakfast in the afternoon. vintage pink cotton dress b And... what a very pink day it was. I think the pink/lilac/blonde hair might be up for a change soon. I know exactly what I want next. We then went to Ikea and got a few things for the kitchen, and managed to keep on track on not come home with, say, a pallet of tea lights. I'm really happy with what we did get, and they have made things a lot more organised. I'll have to show you how our place is looking! vintage pink cotton dress g

Your hair looks amazing that way :) Also, that light pink lily of the valley print dress in the second picture is maybe the most beautiful dress I've ever seen! Have you worn it before? If not, I'm dying to see better pictures of it haha ^_^

I'm super jealous of your hair! I do, however, already own some cute sunglasses like yours. :)

You always have the BEST dresses. I am seriously jealous. The weather there looks so beautiful too. It is -10F here today... makes me long for summer!

Madeline Quaint said...

I'm sure everyone who met you that day smiled! :) Adorable outfit and colours!
I know what you mean by IKEA - I always end up buying a load of stuff I never intended to. :D

Naomi : yes, it was nice to liven it up but then again, I loved – loved! – the greyness sandwiched in all this blue sky searing heat we've been having :)


Blogger Coma Girl : thanks, I think I am suddenly over my hair though hehe! Bring back the red. The pink dress behind me is new, and I look forward to wearing it very soon, with better pics I promise! x

Blogger Two Happy Hearts : haha aren't brarvos the best!!! :D

Blogger Two Happy Hearts : I always forget to mention them, they're from.. KMart! Or maybe Big W. I'm pretty sure it's Big W, the blue shop downstairs in Melbourne's QV? And they are SO comfortable!

Blogger Tara : thanks, it was certainly a very pink day! ;D

Blogger Bethany : how good are cat's eyes glasses! :)

Blogger norafinds : aw thanks! Haha that pale pink dress has got quite some attention! It's a newbie early 1960's number and I will wear it very very soon :D

Blogger Kalaurie Karl-Crooks : thanks! I never thought I'd be such a pink fan but here it is..!

Blogger EmJean : oh, no, my skin is far from flawless, believe me. I had a spot by my right eyebrow that the iPhone didn't pick up very well, and I still get acne on my chest. I do have some loved products though so I'll do a post on them soon :)

Blogger Harlow Darling : haha it's never the same, sooo much effort though!

Blogger GracefullyVintage : thanks! x

Blogger Jaimee Byron : i do it all myself but I am getting a bit over bleaching it every 3 weeks! :)

Blogger alittlevintagestory: thanks!

Blogger Lauren : no, I think it is just the grey-ish daylight (I was standing right next to the window) and the way the iPhone picks up colours :) I think the bright pink dress made them look more blue somehow, too.

Blogger angie : thanks angie!


Blogger Mrs Advocat: isn't it! I plan to have plenty of occasions to use it. :)

Blogger LandGirl1980: yays!


Blogger lauren, curious constellation : it's funny, I'm thinking of going back to how I had it before I went blonde etc! ;D

Anonymous Micaela // Drifter and the Gypsy: couldn't be without them! :)

Blogger AhkaVintage : thank you!

Blogger Babes in Thriftland : thanks, the collection is slowly growing... woah that's -24.5C wow I can't imagine how cold that would feel!

Blogger Madeline Quaint : thanks :) oh isn't IKEA cheeky like that! Still it has some ace stuuf, too.

Becky: thanks! x

Blogger sophie : thank you!

Blogger Teresa: thanks! Oh isn't summer just demanding bright colours! x

How gloriously sweet, feminine and beautiful! Pink is my all-time favourite hue and I'm off the mind that one can never have - or wear - too much for this splendidly lovely colour.

♥ Jessica
