For visiting a vintage festival it really was only appropriate that I wear some actual vintage. When looking in my wardrobe it turns out this playsuit is the only vintage piece of clothing I own! I do have a few other accessories but no where near the selection of outfits I thought. Turns out I'm more of a second hand/vintage-style kinda gal. Maybe a vintage shopping spree is in order.

Please do excuse my milk bottle white legs. This was the first time in a very long time I've left the house without tights on. Don't get me wrong, I'm usually quite offensively pale, but I'm used to having the armour of natural coloured tights that give a teeny tiny hint of colour. It's good to step out of your comfort zone though, even if it's just in a small way. Plus Glasgow was super warm so I was quite glad I'd let my legs get some fresh air.  

And here is my rather fabulous new bangle by Catriona Clark. I picked it up at the Tea Green Pop Up and couldn't wait to put it on. I know the modern look of it doesn't quite go with the vintage theme of this outfit but I still love it. Watch out for it being paired with more appropriate ensembles very soon.
