Outfit: 1960′s Ice Cream Parlour

by Elizabeth Sellers on 2 March 2012 · 9 comments

Yesterday I got rather excited at the prospect of Spring and sunshine and lovely stuff. This is quite clearly reflected in my sartorial decision-making where I thought I should wear as many bright colours as possible and top it off with a stripy blazer.

Coral pleated skirt, yellow vintage blouse, stripy blazer and mint green nails. Yeah. I like it.

I am loving my mint nail varnish. It was one of those I need a pick-me-up purchase. Nail varnish is always a good little buy when you are low on funds but in need of some retail therapy. This new Rimmel colour is called Peppermint and apparently has Lycra in it! How does that even work?

The burning question is… colour or neutrals, which camp are you in?

YAY Spring!

You look lovely! SO cheerful. And very ice-cream parlourish.

So, one question? Where is my ginger beer float?

Colours all the time!! Im too messy for neutrals & too pale for them too. I do have a tendency to wear a lot of black/grey in winter tho.

Love your nail varnish. But what I really want to know is what shoes are you wearing!?!
