2012-08-18 Not Dressed As Lamb 003

In June of this year I started to fret that summer was never going to come to the UK (oh, the rain), and with that came the fear that all my pretty summer dresses would go unworn. But we have had a few gorgeous days, and if this was the only time that I got to wear my prized vintage eBay white cotton dress, then so be it!

I think the great thing about buying vintage is that it’s less likely to date quickly. I hope so, anyway πŸ™‚

Happy weekend everybody! Have a good one!

    You look gorgeous in this! So classic and timeless.

    Happy summer to you!!

    Absolute perfect again, Catherine! I ADORE the contrast of the feminine dress with the more masculine details of the hat, belt, and oversized watch. For me, this look is a 10!!! ~Sarah

    Beautiful shots. You look amazing.

    Dear English Bird, you look terrific in this outfit, the first and last photos are beautiful. (The shoes don't look quite so carefree, but my daughters would tell you that I'm not a shoe person and haven't got a clue!)

    i love the black accessories
    it gives the sweet white dress a great edge

    I like the hat with your white dress. Very cool look for a hot summer day.

  13. 27 August 2012 / 4:49 pm

    You look great! I LOVE those shoes!!!

  14. 27 August 2012 / 8:06 am

    Love this Catherine. Although you always look great in all your colours, it's so nice to see you in classic black and white. Absolutely adore your hat!

  15. 27 August 2012 / 6:37 am

    That is such a gorgeous summer dress Catherine & I LOVE it with that hat. Timelessly chic xo

    Love this — the black belt really elevates the look!

  17. 27 August 2012 / 1:34 am

    Oh my goodness… this is just so simple and perfect. No other words. πŸ™‚

  18. 27 August 2012 / 1:15 am

    Black and white is always classic. You look great!

    Beautiful dress and I love it with the hat…but you look great in hats!!

      Oh Pam you're too kind, sweetie! And funnily enough that's what my dad has always said (about me in hats)! x

    Im heading to ebay right now in search of hats. I've seen you and a few bloggers wearing and they add such an edge to an outfit. Besides it much stylish than beanie hats in Winter. The dress looks great on you and I guess the beauty of not being able to wear your summer dresses is you can pair them with leggings or tights come next season.

      Mmmmm that is a good idea, Ivy!! Though not sure how I'll have the room in my wardrobe for the summer dresses once my winter wardrobe is in there…! ;))

    I agree about vintage – this gorgeous dress will look stylish on you for the next decade or so. Wonderful look!
