OOTD - Silk and Sunshine

Today was a glorious day in Manchester, so what better way to spend it than by going for a wander in the meadows and taking pictures in the garden like a fool!

I must say that i try, whenever possible, to take advantage of the sunny weather and be outside in the garden.

My outfit today is what i like to call none vintage, vintage (haha) I would surely love to be head to toe in vintage everyday however my clothes budget and vintage wardrobe size don't quite cut the biscuit yet so in the mean time i try to style in a vintage way.

Plus i absolutely adore this skirt and i hardly ever get a chance to wear it because its silk; and lets face it silk and the good old Manchester rain do not mix!

Glasses - Bought at a vintage fair
Linen blouse - H&M
Cami - Primark
Wrap around silk skirt - Shop in Brazil
Shoes - Moda in Pelle

Told you i was taking pictures like a fool but this skirt makes you want to twirl. As my good friend says " It's a lady skirt to twirl in".

My little friend Bruno got in on the action sunning himself before we took a walk. 

Its so lovely to see all the flowers blooming and hear all the birds singing. All the winter blues are gone and people seem generally happier when the sun is out.

Hope you all have a day in the sunshine and enjoy the English summer.

Hugs and Kisses
