So that means I've had to go raiding all my friends' closets and putting together outfits from their things! Which is not a bad thing, really. We've all been having a good time mixing and matching things. Oh, and we've learned that two new girls in my year will be starting here when Michaelmas term begins -- one from Ireland and one from Israel -- and they're BOTH involved in theater. In fact, one of them wants to be a costume designer!!! I know we're all going to be great friends. I can't wait to meet them!
Right, then, back to the task at hand, yes? Today I want to show you an outfit that Amy Jinn and I put together out of her closet. I think it's just the perfect outfit for a hot day.
Amy Jinn bought this lovely sundress secondhand, way back in the winter, from one of our very stylish friends, Sabine Bouchard (there's a link to her blog below). Trading clothes with friends, or buying and selling them secondhand, is an excellent way to stretch your wardrobe pounds and pence!
The wee blue roses are so delicate against the crisp cream-coloured cotton, and I just LOVE the crocheted lace at the hem. So understated and elegant!
Straightaway we knew this cornflower blue necklace and bracelet set would be perfect.
We decided to keep things as cool as possible by layering shades of blue, so we topped off the dress (which has spaghetti straps) with a navy vest.
The vest and bright blue textured Dollistocks sandals keep the outfit casual, although it would be super-easy to dress it up with a nice cardigan and ballet flats instead.
No matter if the sun blares down; Amy looks like a cool summer breeze!
