50s vintage floral summer bloom...

Do you have a favourite summer dress in your wardrobe which you can always rely on for a hot summers day? This vintage 50s dress is just that for me! It has such a perfect vibrant summer floral print, with a simple shape, lots of swing and to top it off it's made from cotton. I heart wearing this dress, another keeper from The Attic People vintage :) 

My mum came to visit last week and these photos were taken by Ross up the Kings Road one of my mums old drinking haunt's in the 70s! It was a beautiful summers day with the sun shining, live jazz music playing, cold beers all round and casual shop window browsing. My flat pumps were perfect for all the walking.

We also went to my dear friend Neil's birthday party saturday and contemplated (for hours) going to see Prince at Hop Farm festival on Sunday; we couldn't go in the end, but we're kicking ourselves now after expected raving reviews from our friends!

  17. You really do find the most perfect vintage pieces! I love the way you've mixed patterns here, and that tapestry bag is beautiful.

    I do have a go-to summer dress! It's a simple short-sleeve dress from the 50's printed with little medieval instruments (like mandolins). It's kind of silly, but I absolutely adore it and feel very "me" when I put it on, if that makes sense. :)

  20. I love sundresses, but I'm pretty schizophrenic about "favourites," so not sure the perfect one exists for me. Yours is lovely though!
