All's Rosy - Outfit Post

Living in my new house has made changes to my life in a number of ways.  And have had an effect on this blog...

I now walk to work most days, clothes in a backpack and a shower waiting for me at work.   As a result it hasn't been as easy to wear vintage as in the past year where I was usually dropped at the front door by car.   Because I'm not getting ready at home in the mornings and I don't really feel like getting dressed back into the day's outfit after walking home and showering in the afternoon outfit shots have been rare. 

I'll work a way around it, which will likely result in evening taking photos the night before I actually wear the
outfit... but for now it means I've only a handful of outfits to be able to post up here.

 Skirt:  50s roses skirt (Recycology - Love Vintage Brisbane Show)
Blouse: off-brand pink collared blouse
 Shoes: Wittner pink ballet flats
Necklace: pink cut-glass vintage necklace (Recycology - Love Vintage Brisbane Show)

The last outfit post was only possible due to the kindness of my good friend Millie who drove me home on a rainy day.  Otherwise I would have walked home in excercise clothes and not bothered changing again to get a photo.  Thanks Millie!
