Back when it was warm...

We have been blessed with some unseasonably warm weather as of late in England but this past week there has been a sudden drop in temperature!

These photos were taken a few weeks back when it was still warm enough to wear summer dresses and sandals.

 
 
I have had this early 1960s L'Aiglon dress for some time even though this is its first outing on the blog.  It's colours are perhaps more suited to Spring rather than Autumn.


 
I don't own many of these 1950s beaded cardigans but this one matches the dress pretty well. 
 
 
When I purchased this wicker bag, I never thought about pairing it with this dress but it matches the colours perfectly.  So much so that I think it was destined to be worn with this dress!  I now can't wait until next Summer when I can wear this dress (and bag) again.

  5. Gorgeous cardigan, I do like a beaded one. The colours in the bag are such a great match for those in the dress!

  6. That purse looks like it's practically made for the dress, what a perfect pairing. Love your little beaded cardigan as well. We're having our first big cold snap here in Chicago, so I'm also looking back on my late summer pics and wondering how I'll deal with the cold.
