wants: retro spring

images from liebemarlene
after having the first day of good weather in a long while, i have a huge craving for spring to finally sort itself out and make a more frequent appearance.
i’ve always been a massive fan of vintage clothing, especially from the 60’s and 70’s. if i’m wearing older clothes then i like them with shape and a bit of history. thigh skimming dresses, little collars, flared trousers and wedges are high on the list of things i love and have done for a long time.

so, the things i’m all over like a tramp on chips for spring are:
– playsuits with structure
– colours: orange, yellow, green, bright blue watered down with pale pinks, creams and pastels
– pattered shirts with collars
– floaty material and high waisted shorts
– 60’s style dresses, perfect length, printed or plain, flared sleeves or sleeveless

now, if only i had any money to spend…
