These pictures are old. Really old. Possibly almost from two years ago (see the change in hair length!), but I still wanted to post them. I've had this jumpsuit and vest forever and it used to be my mum's in around the 70s. I've worn it a lot (I've not really grown since I was 13, so there's definitely some items I've been able to wear since then - and some items not so much, ha!), but in recent years I feel like it's even become fashionable. Something I'm not too bothered about but it's still nice to see other people appreciating the kind of style I've been into for quite some time. Did anyone ever watch Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries? Although it's a different era and different everything, this outfit kind of made me feel like a bit of a Phryne. It's not really what her outfits are like on the show, but somehow still reminded me of her. And I'm looking forward to wearing this again in the summer and feeling like a 20s Phryne, a 70s mum or just current day myself!

//UPDATE My laptop broke down (how convenient, just at the end of the semester before I finished all my uni projects!). I am going to be in Finland in a couple of weeks and can send it to be fixed there which will in turn take about 3 weeks. So I will be taking a wee break from the blog - possibly until July. I'll see you then and stay in touch via social media (where I'll possibly be able to be more present)! xx
