Outfit of the Day ~ English Country Garden.


Vintage pleated skirt* ~ Brag Vintage
Sleeveless chiffon shirt ~ New Look
Heart locket ~ Gift
Cuffed boots ~ New Look
Ladybird brooch ~ from a fair

The first day I wore this skirt a lovely worker at the train station told me I looked like the girl from the chocolate advert which I then confirmed that he meant Audrey Hepburn. That was a good start to my day! The skirt comes from Brag Vintage, a store which can be found both online and in real life in Sheffield. They approached me asking if I would be up for featuring something from their website and after looking around I decided I would. Firstly, it took forever to choose one garment because there are so many golden pieces - they're not like poorer quality vintage store with pieces that no one really wants. I'm particularly in love with some of the t-shirts (an old Taylor Swift or Nickelback tour t-shirt for ironic days?). Not only that but the prices are great and the website is really nice - simple, clean, loads of detailed shots of the products including any damage. I was genuinely impressed, especially since I don't like browsing real vintage stores but sometimes you can't trust online stores, but this one was perfect and they were thorough about listing anything wrong with the garments. It arrived in perfect condition, without smelling musky and it fitted perfectly (which I was able to ensure thanks to the measurements also listed on the site). All in all, definitely recommend Brag Vintage!
As for the rest of the outfit; the locket was a third year anniversary present from the boyfriend (he had it engraved on the inside, so sweet!). I also wanted to mix up my under eye dots a bit, which I've been doing recently (tried crosses and lines so far) so I went for a teeny tiny crescent moon and a slightly wonky star, I quite like it. I've also wanted to focus on the ladybird brooch which is so adorable - I currently like wearing it on collars and on head scarves and I've had a few people mistake it for a real ladybird! I like that idea - that it's just landed and is chilling for a bit.
These photos were taken in Nymans (a National Trust property) - aren't those blue flowers just stunning? It's the perfect time of year to go and visit gardens - everything's in bloom and there were bees and butterflies everywhere, it was just really freaking lovely! Other than that I've been working on my MCM Expo cosplay and learning lines and generally chilling.
Hope you're all enjoying your week!
