spring comes a week early...

We had a glimmer of sunshine this morning so I decided to get all dolled up and go out to brunch with my sweetiepie.  Back in December I found this amazing 1960's dress and matching jacket at our local auction house for really cheap.  I decided to try it on and it fit perfectly!  I'm so excited to be able to wear it now as it's perfect for spring.



And I ended up buying the cute 'Ness' matching purse for my shoes.....oh, how I love it!!

I experimented with doing a 60's inspired hairdo (hello backcombing!) and like the way it turned out:


And there are the first signs that winter is almost over in our village...crocuses!!

  6. The whole ensemble from shoes, to dress, to hair is fantastic. The photos are great too. I love the second one with the cobble stone. It's looks like a 1960's star is on tour in Europe and flirting with the paparazzi cameras.
