1930s Nautical


Ahhh winter in Queensland! This week I've been to the beach and swam in the ocean - which most people wouldn't generally do in winter, but it was wonderful, perfect even - apart from a lone shark that turned up and cut our swim a little short! I still wasn't over my beach kick however, so the next day we drove to another beach which was more of the promenading sort, to take in the sea air and eat fish and chips.

When it comes to outfit inspiration, a lot of the time when I am going through vintage photos, certain outfits stick in my mind and I become determined to recreate them or at least inspired to find something similar. I have been on the hunt for the perfect 30s style trousers for a while now and so I was very pleased to get a hold of these ones that are so similar to ones I have seen in vintage photos! Same thing with these sunglasses which are just like some I saw on the cover of a vintage Vogue.

These trousers are an absolute dream to wear! They actually feel as soft and comfortable as the pajama pants I wear at home, which is pretty fabulous considering they are outside clothes! Since I am quite short, I had them taken up - which is something I have accepted is going to be the done thing now that I am into wearing pants - and that's just fine!

Shoes - Novo
Sunnies - Ebay

  3. You are really like a girl from cover of Vogue! Amazing. Love this pants, I would like to have sailor pants, but in general I dont like to wear pant, and I think they dont suit nicely to me.

  6. How is this your winter?! I feel very strongly like wailing 'it's not faaaaair' right now. Your weather here is better than our practically summer - which is currently whipping up a horrendous wind outside my window right now. I love this outfit - if we actually had any decent weather here it would be so lovely for spring! CC x

  7. So cute! I love the whole outfit. I'm a huge fan of white pants, but I'm terrified to wear them in real life! Way to be bold and rock them!

  9. Oh my word, what a breathtakingly pretty outfit! I'm always leery of saying as much, because I truly appreciate and enjoy seeing all of the outfits that a blogger shares, but this might just be my favourite (top three for sure) of yours that you've ever posted with us. Both it and these photos are arrestingly beautiful!

  15. Let's swap homes for a few weeks - I'll go be warm, and you can wear a fur coat for awhile, yes?

  17. Stunning look! The whole outfit is perfection, and looks like you stepped out of the pages of a vintage fashion shoot. ;) The trousers and sunnies really do pull the whole look together, but honestly, I was staring at your shoes..... So pretty! ❤
