Cape: H&M//Top: cannot remember!//Jeans: Topshop//Flats: UO//Bag: Primark

An outfit for a rainy day last weekend (we seem to have had a lot of those in the last two months). Still nothing too exciting to report, it's lots of ups and downs, but I'm currently sipping on a G&T which improves things considerably. Monday I'm off to a Spa with my mum, I could definitely do with a little relaxing.
(Glad everyone was with me on the Converse- here's another faux pas, I'm actually wearing a hoody under this cape, it was just too cold for my skimpy cardigans).

Anyway, my mum kindly brought me back these pages from old French newspapers and magazines, some are over a hundred years old. A dress for 5 francs, I wish!

  1. Ooh, I love that pretty cape! And the detail on that top is so cute!
    I love the last advertisement about the bonnets, it's crazy to think that women used to wear them! I sometimes wish they were still in fashion!
    Hope you have a lovely time at the Spa with your mum on Monday!
    Love Charlie xoxo.

  25. Goodness me, how wet and rainy does it look back home? I am really looking forward to breathing in the cleaner, fresher air (as opposed to the humid, polluted air in HK) but I am definitely worried about the cold as I've now fully acclimatised to the 30c weather in HK now (I even wear a cardi in 28c heat!) oh man....

    Great rainy day outfit :) I wish the sun would come out though - it'd be so much easier to take outfit pics! At the moment I'm having to nip out in between the showers! Not so fun!
