Born too late to a world that doesn’t care

Tuesday, July 15, 2014


It's a curious revelation but just lately I've started to wonder if I was meant to be born in another time. If I had been born in 1950 then I'd have been a teenager in the sixties and spent my twenties in the seventies, what a strange thought. The last year or so I have noticed my tastes veering to more bohemian styles; floaty skirts, drapey sleeves, prints. The flowers in my hair are fast becoming a permanent fixture, it's summer and I'm feeling carefree so it must be acceptable.


I was born too late to a world that doesn't care, oh I wish I was a [punk rocker] with flowers in my hair

Do you happen to recognise this dress by any chance? It was sent to me last week by my brilliant blogger buddy Hazel  as part of her continuing wardrobe control. How I respect that, pretty much nothing escapes my possession, I only seem to accumulate these days... Anyway, she sent two dresses which she thought I might like (I wore them both at the weekend, it was irresistible!) and like I very much did. Funny, isn't it, how someone else choosing something for you can be so spot on. I would never have bought either dresses, thinking they weren't 'me'. This one I would have dismissed as being as not being my kind of print and I'm not a fan of half arm sleeves, plus the dipped neckline isn't something I'm generally comfortable with.

I tried it on and didn't want to take it off. The weather was kind of cool for a summer's day so my brown boots seemed a good choice to wear which coincidentally were bought when Hazel and I cleared all the good charity shop finds out of Bury St Edmunds that time...


I just need to get my hair to grow an extra foot long or get some serious hair extensions.

Peace out

  1. beautiful photos as always. I really want me hair to grow super long and have lovely waves but it always stops at a certain length and splits, boohoo x

  2. aww it looks fab! I thought it would. I did have a moment of doubt after I'd handed them over the post office counter, worrying that you might find it odd that I sent you dresses unsolicited!

    I do love a tunic dress and find 3/4 sleeves handy for our English 'summers'. Love it with those boots and the head dress is so lovely. I thought you'd enjoy the 70's vibe of this one. The thing I love about this decade is that you can wear any style you like (although I think the 80's is one to be avoided! hehe).

  3. You don't have to be born in that era to love it, it's timeless, liberating and attractive- you embrace all of these in these pictures! Very pretty and how lovely of Hazel to send them! X

  4. Wow Hazel did a good job that dress is gorgeous on you!!!! These photos are so pretty and I love your hair like that.

  5. I looovveee they dress! I've wondered that same thing for years - being born in the 50's and being young in the sixties and seventies, would have been absolutely amazing! The music festival would've been something else... I think I'm just a little too obsessed with that thought!

  6. I was born at just the right time I think. Didn't have to put up with too much of the '80s, but still got to enjoy the amazing movies of the time. Had my teenage years in the grunge of the 90s and early 2000's and hopefully in my prime now :)
    I want that floral crown and your curly hair :)

  7. Gorgeous photos chick, I think it woulda have been awesome to be a teenager in the 60's

  8. Beautiful dress and you look stunning in these photos.

    I often wonder what it would be like to be born in a different era too!

  9. Beautiful photos! Love the dress. I just found your blog through Megan's, and I absolutely love it!

  12. Your dress is so beautiful & you're so lucky that you can wear a flower crown and still look stunning - I look so silly in them!
