Best of British: Early Summer

Early Summer
Early Summer
One of my favourite British traits has to be baring as much pallid skin as possible, the moment temperatures rise about 15°C. I'm not usually a culprit but this week it was so unseasonably warm that I had no choice. We took the opportunity to walk down the hill to the harbour and enjoy the sunset with a nice drink.

Early Summer
Dress - Vintage, Skirt & Brogues - Primark, Sunglasses - H&M, Heart Box-Bag - Urban Outfitters.


Early Summer
I bought this dress almost two years ago in a tiny vintage shop in Montmartre while we were in Paris. It was a complete shambles with so many rails that I literally had to squeeze through the door but since these kind of shops are inevitably where the best treasures are found I braved it. I'm glad that I did because I found this handmade frock for only €10. I've been wearing it with my favourite bag and shoes of the moment.

I hope everyone is enjoying the bank holiday weekend, I'm in sunny Aberdeen riding rollercoaters (my least favourite pastime), drinking copious Tea Vodka Cocktails and a little relaxation. x

  12. I love your bag Cait, it's such a perfect summer bag! The weather has been unseasonably warm this side of the globe recently. It feels wrong to be wearing sandals in the middle of April, but it's just too hot not to!

    PS, that dress-what a find!

  16. Such an adorable bag, and I love your sunglasses too.

    I am shamefully guilty of getting my legs out at the slightest hint of sunshine. The length of my skirt depends on the temperature, though! :)

  25. Thank you for all your comments, I hope you've all been enjoying the sunshine too.
    A few people asked which nail varnish I'm wearing, its Purple Ash by Models Own.

    Thank you again for all the lovely comment about my photographs, it means alot that you like them. We shoot with a Nikon D90 and a 30mm 1.4 lens. The camera is great but its the lens I couldn't do without. I would shoot everything on 1.4 if it were possible!
