These photos were taken on a day trip to Brighton a few weekends ago (when it was still cold but very sunny!)
The colours in this outfit are perhaps more suited to a day in Autumn rather than the start of Spring. I do love all those Spring pastel shades but I like to buy vintage that is practical and I find these colours to be more practical (at least in England!) than pastel shades (this doesn't stop me coveting all the pastel shade dresses popping up all over Etsy right now!)
This outfit also presented the opportunity to wear this hat. I bought this hat in 2012 and have only worn it a couple of times (it has been featured in this post.) Although I do really like the style, the colour doesn't seem to go with many of my outfits but I think it suits this dress.
