sitting in an english garden waiting for the sun

 Coat - Still Young Vintage
Dress - Primark
Knee socks - Halpa-Halli(?)
Earrings - Seppälä
Boots - 2nd hand

Trust me to try and take outfit photos on the windiest day ever! I've experienced my fair share of Marilyn-moments and they always seem to happen when I'm not wearing anything under my dress or skirt (apart from knickers, I'm not quite daring enough to frolic around with  nothing on). Other people might associate Marilyn Monroe with silly little quotes about how you should be accepted with all your vices and such, but for me it's walking with the hem of my dress over my head. And her movies. But mostly the dress thing.

This's just a quick post as I really should be starting on my dissertation. It's not something I'm most keen on, but I'll be spending an awful lot of time on it for the next few months. It'll either mean that I'll be busy and not that present on the blog or that I'll be procrastinating and posting more than usually, ha! Catch you later, lovelies!

Toi mekko on niin ihana, meinasin ostaa itelleni samanlaisen mustana silloin joskus kun niitä oli myynnissä mutta se epäjoustavuus ärsytti :D Nyt kaduttaa, näyttää niin kivalta! :'D xx

This is such a cute outfit! I feel you on the wind, it is really my least favorite element. I do love the pattern on your dress though!

Imogen said...

This dress is so gorgeous. It is definitely one of my favourite prints and I often say there should be more of it around. The colour is really unique and classy. I really wish we had a primark here, I have heard so much about it and want to try it.

WIND IS THE WORST! I can't stand wind. It's my least favourite weather ever!

I do like the dress though. Good luck with the dissertation writing.

Hello Laura,

Very attractive dress. I was a fan of Marilyn when I was in school. I remember watching her movie SEVEN YEARS ITCH when I was in school. I still have a movie of her in my collection = THE BUST STOP.

Best wishes.
