And it isn't just about making the most out of the day, I have to make the most out of my summer wardrobe! I do prefer vintage summer wear and therefore have more of it than colder weather clothes. So as soon as the weather becomes nice, the challenge is to wear all your summer clothes as you will never know when it will be warm enough to wear them again!
I chose yesterday to wear this beautiful pale yellow sundress. I purchased this Jeanne d'Arc dress deadstock from a trader at Viva Las Vegas this year. I had seen the dress there each day but it was only until the Sunday when it was reduced (and so cheap!) did I decide I really needed it in my life!
I am also wearing a recently purchased deadstock necklace and clamper bracelet from Bow and Crossbones. I always feel a little sad cutting the tags off deadstock items, as they are no longer deadstock once you do that but I don't see any point in buying something if I'm not going to wear it. At least I know I will look after it.
We went to Hengistbury Head which is only 45 minutes from where we live and walked along the coast and then back down along the beach. A great day to spend on the beautiful South Coast.
