Tres frou frou - Vintage inspired fashion

I don't have a lot of opportunity to do dresses, I'm more a jeans kind of gal... Jeans are practical and kind of go with my everyday life. It's not especially glam I know and definitely not as pretty as a beautiful silky, floaty dress, but somehow gliding around looking like I'm off to the red carpet doesn't really fit with village life (or not the village I live in at any rate!)

Every so often however, the girly girl inside me wants to play dress up - and one of my favourite things about being in England is English fashion. I love vintage fashion and the influence of this style on a lot of current fashion trends.

The lady-like glamour of vintage fashion is one of the thing that really appeals to me - I can be a bit of a romantic and like harking back to times past imagining myself into my own Jane Austen-eque day dream!

If some of these dresses were in my wardrobe - I think I could seriously get excited about wearing dresses a whole lot more!

Happy Tuesday! xx

I'd love to cycle off to collect the children from school like that risque bike photo! Imagine!

And then stop off at the swings for a mock-up of the swing photo.

That would be hilarious!

What gorgeous dresses. Yummy!

Every one of these outfits would be part of my ideal wardrobe! Could you imagine donning such a gorgeous dress every day? Sigh.
