Yesterday we went for a walk around a pretty village nearby - will need to take some better pictures of the actual place sometime and share them with you, it really is charming.
I mixed vintage and modern for a 30's inspired look, you see yet more of my wide leg linen trousers, with a modern silk blouse that was love at first sight and vintage crochet cardigan and bag.
The cardigan just about fits but I wish it was a tad bigger (those incredibly small openings for arms - how tiny can these things get?!). Such a lovely thing though, with the cutest clear glass buttons and barely there collar (which of course doesn't sit right in the pics...).
It was one of those late summer days when you feel already a chill in the air, the unmistakable clue of what's to come and, like a ripple of anguish on the calm surface of a pond, the nostalgia of something that has been, but is no more.
