Poised for the leap!
Sssooooomy Beth dress arrived during the Easter holidays along with my parents! Of course it had to be worn immediately. Excuse my scary face in this photo, I'm planning the cold murder of those crêpes in front of me while trying to concentrate posing for the photo. You can be certain I attacked soon as the camera went away.
Sitting at Cafe Paris again btw.
Apologies for the quality of pictures, I still haven't mastered the self-timing functions of this camera.
I've always found it charming to see bloomers peek out under the skirts, especially with ruffly styles such as this. I know this idea is not shared by many and that it likely looks better on younger people, but sometimes I still like to try it (eventually I did go without them though). I tend to feel similar about petticoats peeking out from under the hem: as long as it looks deliberate and the petti has a pretty hem it tends to be a-OK in my book, and the same goes for the bloomers: it looks nice to me as long as it looks like the person wearing them is deliberately showing them (as opposed to whoops petti sneaked out).
OP and hat: Beth - Victorian Maiden
Socks: Innocent World
Shirt: fleamarket find
The cardigan in the top photo is also a fleamarket find btw.
