A Collection of Outfits

Today I spent the afternoon playing "dress-ups" with my own wardrobe to help me with my packing for High Rock-A-Billy in Spain.  It's really not long now.  Only five days to go and I am counting!  I'm actually a little relieved to say that checking the weather again today the temperature seems to have dropped just a tad.  But still hot and sunny like a summer vacation should be.  I'm a little bit frightened of coming back with colour; which I will even with sunblock and parasol to hand as that always happens.  Even in England!  Oh well, at least it will be a good memory of a great time spent away :D

Anyway, looking at outfits and dresses has reminded me about posting some other outfits I have been sporting of late.  Ever since I started this blog I had the intention of doing outfit posts.  I know I do the occasional ones from attending events and going out but I wanted to show you my more dressed-down daily looks.  I think it's always nice to be dolled up but I find seeing peoples everyday style is also an inspiration too.

You will notice that nearly all the photos are self taken and I do apologise for that.  The reason being is that I feel a little embarrassed to keep asking my friends to take photographs of me.  I know they don't mind but I do.  I have however found it a little easier to build up a collection of my outfits since signing up to Twitter where I have been posting the odd ones.  These are outfits from the last couple of weeks when London has had the odd glorious days of sun.  

I heart candy stripes!

An oddly sporty day.  I felt like a 50s gym girl!
I have some new Converse. It's been many years since I've had Cons on my
feet but only because they are leopard print! Worn with bobby socks of course.

My favourite Dungaree Dollys from Freddies of Pinewood 
Freddies will also be at High Rockabilly which is all too tempting!

All my tattoos were on show that day.
The weather was hothothot! 

It's hard to tell but I am wearing my Vivien of Holloway halterneck top
with some high-waisted denim shorts.

Bow tights love - showgirl style!

My lovely Paul & Joe dress with the prettiest print.

That concludes the outfits.  It seemed the right time to post this before I go away.  Who knows, the weather in England might have turned for the worst when I arrive back.  It would be silly to show such summery outfits then!

I may get time to write another post before I jet off but I can't promise... I only managed around 20% visual packing today.  Lots more to do!

Thank you lovely ladies!

I can't complain but everyone wants to change something about their figure. Silly really! x
