Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

Decade Of The 20th Century

So this week I’m asking you – what decade would you like me to write more on? Personally for me I love the 20s, skip out the 30s-40s and go straight into the 50s and the following decade. As I’m not a fan of the 30s-40s and tend to skim or avoid talking about it, would you like me to talk about those decades? If you’re a 90s kid, do you want me to be all about the 90s? After all you should know me by now and I aim to please. So leave a comment and tell me which decade interest you the most from the 20th century. Here’s a brief summery of all the decades of the 20th century.

 

1900:

The Edwardian period, ww1 and the start of a new century. The sinking of titanic, planes was being invented and silent movie was new. Old value in society was changing and women right was in full force.

1920:

Coco Chanel was fashion queen, flapper became a thing and movies invented talkie. Jazz and alcohol was all the rage and women was allowed to vote.

1930s:

The great depression, movie/Hollywood was golden and ready to wear became king of the high street. Also a lot of political upheaval and start of ww2.

1940s

War!

1950s

Christian Dior New look fashion, rock n Roll – Elvis and people recovering from war-time era. Teenagers became a thing!

1960s:

Twiggy, flower power and mini skirt, The Beatles and money to spend. Cold war and hippy. Top Of The Pop was also king of the BBC.

1970s:

Disco fever, Bee Gees and Abba. Flare trouser and sideburn. Star wars and space.

1980s:

Madonna and Margaret Thatcher, MTV and shopping! It was also the decade I was born in!

1990s:

90s10thingtolovea

Spice girls, Barbie and the titanic film. Spending Friday night watching Friends or Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Tracksuit and scrunchie, 95.8 Captal fm and cd player.

 

I hope you have enjoyed that and tell me which decade you want me to talk more on?

    Great write up. Those coats from the 30’s are fantastic. It’s interesting to see distinct looks from other decades. What will it be for our current decade, I wonder?

    Thank you for linking up to Share the Joy Anna! Personally I’d love to hear more about the 1920’s rise of the women’s vote and the good old 90’s, my musical era growing up. Lizzie

    I’m a vintage soul and collector and vintage things. I feel like I’m a throwback to the 20’s and 30’s. The elegance, the ladylike sense of style, the class the women of that era exuded really appeal to me. The 50’s was okay, too. From there I think it all went downhill.

    While I think 1900s through 1920s were fabulous, my favorite era of all time was the 1940s. The classy, feminine, but tailored style of dress. The way the nation banded together for the common thread that wove them together of WWII. The big band, happy music with lots of jazz. The happy times when the war was over. The tribute to those heroes that didn’t come home. The ‘Mayberry’ way in which people lived, decorated their homes, and welcomed their neighbors. The hairstyles were unique and makeup a lot more natural and stunning.
    See, I’m obsessed!

    Nice! What about the 10’s? 🙂

    I thought about it but I don’t consider the 2000s to be part of the 20th century – it belong more to the 21th century. xx

    It’s fascinating to see the decades in pictures. Things really change from one decade to the next, don’t they? Thank you for putting in the time and work to compile this list.

    Nice impression given of the passage of time, the fashion in 1990’s is the one I liked the most! More on it, if you like.
