Today I decided to channel the inner 60s girl in me. After another trip to the markets, the top I am pictured wearing instantly caught my eye at one of the first sellers. I have been meticulously searching for the perfect gingham dress for a while, so I got rather excited when I saw this! Despite it obviously not being the dress of my dreams, I think it is just as cute. The minute I saw it, these words popped to mind: Bridget Bardot, '60s, beehives, picnics, summer and strawberries!
With spring finally here and summer about to show itself, I like to think that this is a very appropriate outfit for hot summer days and cloistering humid nights, don't you? I have never been one to expose my midriff, but hey, may as well be brave and try something different. I think this outfit is a perfect mixture of classic charm and cheeky while remaining conservative.
I also pictured a little gift I received last week. My Literature teacher decided to buy my whole class a secondhand book that she thought may appeal to each individual, and I absolutely love mine! Although she knew that I have read Tess of the D'urbervilles (and if you haven't you really must!) she thought I would appreciate the copy, which dates back to 1930. I absolutely adore the spine the most. This is one of the most endearing gifts I have been given, and i know that I will carry it with me throughout my life. It makes me so sad to know that I will soon never attend my favourite class in high school.
Anyway, I must be off to do some study. It's always nice to find time for a little spot of blogging. It really does make a world of difference to have a creative outlet like this.
