So, as a quick catch up, I thought I would summarise May so far with some outfits
I started off the Month in Spain. Those of you that have been following my blog for a while might remember my post last year when we visited a relative in the Costa Del Sol. Well, we were lucky enough to have been asked back, and although it wasn't as hot as last year and we weren't there for as long, we had a lovely, relaxing time. I won't bore you all with all of our holiday snaps, actually we haven't seen them all ourselves yet, as we have yet to develop the 20 rolls of film that Hanson snapped while we were out there, but here are a few of my holiday outfits:
|This 1950s beach jacket became a staple of my holiday wardrobe.|
|Seen here within Freddie's Pedal Pushers|
|I actually cut the legs off an old pair of Freddie's to make these shorts, but I believe they sell shorts now|
|A fave dress; 1950s leaf print barkcloth|
|Terrified for our lives on a cable car|
|What Katie Did Bikini, vintage blouse, Spanish espadrilles, unstyled wet hair, handsome man|
The Ric Rac ClubI love being part of the Vintage Mafia, and hosting the Ric Rac Club is so much fun. This month we held a circus themed party and were overwhelmed with the effort folks went to with their costumes. The three of us Mafiettes went dressed as a circus performer, fortune teller and ringmaster.
The 1940s Relived at Brooklands MuseumThis was the first time I've been to Brookland's; a museum with an amazing history in motor racing and aviation. This 40s themed day was absolutely lovely, with some amazingly dressed friendly people, superb re-enactors, brilliant entertainment, all within this historic setting. We are dying to go back and have a proper look around when there isn't the distraction of so many well dressed folks! As I'm a 50s girl, I decided to go for a late 40s New Look...erm, look. I wore some 1940s shoes that I had been thinking of selling, but may actually keep them now as I've fallen back in love with them. We'll see.
