Outfit / Fit For A Queen

Larkspur Vintage | Outfit: Fit For A QueenLarkspur Vintage | Outfit: Fit For A QueenIf I had to decide what my ultimate clothing staple was, it would likely be a white/cream blouse, which is blatantly apparent when you look through my closet; I own a whole slew of them. That might seem a bit excessive, but each one is different, giving me a multitude of options for styling. For me, a white blouse goes with pretty much anything and everything; long and short skirts, layered under a pinafore or sleeveless dress, trousers and shorts, under a sweater, untucked, tucked in, dressed up, casual…the list goes on. White blouses are romantic and timeless, and a really great one is something I will always fall for. The sleeves and neckline of this little number had me at hello and I quickly knew it would be a new favourite. With an air of nobility, I figured I should wear my hair in pseudo-crown (read: milkmaid braids) and photograph it in the most monarch-worthy garden I could find in my fair city. I think this whole look would have been punched up a bit with a floor length skirt, but it was bloody hot and I’ll do a lot of things for fashion, but overheating is not one of them. I often think my British ancestry still very much lives on inside me; I’m generally displeased with the heat and the cold, leaving only those short periods of mild temperatures during the year where I am completely content, which is a constant reminder that I live in the wrong part of the world…but I digress. White blouses, forever.

    Eeek! You are SO gorgeous. I adore your hair!! I need to try that out like asap. I don’t think I have one white blouse like that…I need to find me a couple of those because it’s sooo romantic and fairytale-ish on you. I’ve browsed the Larmoni site and loooove their stuff. I should start a wish list for them. ha! I love everything going on in these photos. I have to agree with you…I can’t stand it too hot or too cold…why can’t it be just right all the time…a nice reasonable warm.

    I just came across this and totally fell in love with the look! It reminds me of one of my favorite childhood movies, Coppola’s “The Secret Garden.” Simply beautiful!
