Maxi Dresses and Waistcoat Vests a Summer Staple Style.....

Temperatures are soaring here, so I'm continuing to try and make the most of slightly cooler days when they come and mixing up modern and vintage pieces for hot, hot, hot days so I can be cool and in comfort.

Last week I made the most of a slightly cooler morning by mixing up this modern thrifted maxi dress with a 1980's thrifted waistcoat vest and accessories. Ironically my outfit selection matched with the colours in the playground that we visited that morning.

Are you suffering with the hot days, how are you beating the heat with your style?

I look at bloggers from other parts of the world with longing....tights, cardi's & polyester. I think it's harder to look really stylish in such extreme heat. My hair goes blah as soon as I leave the house & there are only a few frocks I can tolerate. I do wish we had a bit more 'in between' weather where I could make the most of my vintage wardrobe. You look fantastic, you most certainly must be the most stylish girl at the park! Xx

I'm suffering from heat of a different kind, the lack of it. It's hovered around minus 5 all day and too cold to snow. It means chapped skin, runny eyes, sore hands and an attractive blue tinge to the skin. What I'd do for just a bit of your warmth.
Maxis are brilliant with waistcoats, my wardrobe staple! You look cool, calm and collected! x
