It’s been the longest time since I’ve written any kind of fashion post, I feel like I only post my outfits to Instagram these days and I rarely go out just to shoot clothes specifically. However, when I was exploring Windsor last week the weather was just starting to turn from Winter to Spring in that short period that almost seems like a second autumn and it felt like the perfect time to get some new fashion shots done!
Beret: Bought in Tokyo
Dita Top: Voodoo Vixen (in Burgundy)
Skirt: Handmade by Sink or Swim Bowtique
Wellington Boots: Hunter (gifted by Fashion World)
I picked up this beret in a cute little boutique in Harajuku when I was travelling around Tokyo, it’s an accessory more fitting with France then Japan, but I love berets and I live for this mustard yellow colour in the winter months, plus it was a bargain so how could I not?
This Dita top has become one of my all time favourites, it’s really comfortable, the puff sleeves add a sweet touch and the keyhole neckline add a vintage flair that’s subtle and not costumey. I need to get it in all the other colours soon.
The skirt is from Etsy seller Sink or Swim Bowtique who I wrote a blog post about way back in 2015 when I first discovered her handmade hair accessories. Since then I’ve bought Christmas decorations, more hair accessories and now clothes from her. They are always hand made, high quality and so well priced I couldn’t recommend buying from her shop enough.
Lastly, we are on to footwear. I recently got a hole in my old wellies (resulting in a flooded shoe incident when walking my mum’s dog at Christmas) so when Fashion World contacted me to see what I wanted to pick up from their site I was drawn straight to the Hunters boots. Hunters are known for their high quality – they have not one, but two Royal Warrants of Appointment so they must be doing something right! This colour matches my winter coat perfectly and they are really comfy to wear even over long distances. I personally prefer the short Hunter rain boots to the full-length ones, they are perfect for when I’m back in Yorkshire trudging through the mud with the dogs.
I really like the colour palette for this outfit – just looking at it makes me feel cosy, it’s a combination I find myself reaching for a lot! Do you still want to see vintage-inspired fashion posts over here or would you rather see them confined to Instagram?
