Maximum Chill Out

Regular readers of my blog may remember my Bayeux tapestry print skirt from a previous post.

After unearthing the skirt in a local vintage store I was instantly hit by a wave of nostalgia and memories of my 1970's childhood. My Mum's friend had a trouser suit in the same groovy fabric which I considered the epitome of glamour. 
Priced at a mere £5 I snapped it up without a second thought - luckily it was a perfect fit.

There's nothing more decadent than slipping on a glamorous number after an long, indulgent soak in the bath and uncorking a bottle of wine, especially on a school night.

The 5p vintage schoolgirl leotard was another of Saturday's jumble sale purchases -the smooth lines make for perfection under a high waisted skirt.


  1. Looks like such a comfy and stylish laid back outfit. Love your wire manniquin on the mantlepiece!

  2. 5p???! as in 5 pence?? that has to be the best bargain buy ever!

    Love that skirt, and totally agree about the wine and bath, nothing better!

  3. Perfection indeed! The sleek black leotard balances the skirt wonderfully.

  4. love it!, love the horsey picture, yr turquoise ring, is it turquoise stone by the way? and your nose ring??!! sooo cool. I look forward to your updated blog, taking inspiration from your groovy style.

  5. Love the black against that skirt. So striking! Love it :D


  6. Loving the print! I'm a bit of a vintage print nerd so I wouldn't have hesitated for a second about snapping that funky skirt up and as far as I'm concerned 'nostalgia' RULES!

  7. Thanks for all the comments!
    Not bad for a total spend of £5.05.

    G: The ring is a huge chunk of turquoise set in solid silver. My birthstone is turquoise and I love it! My BF commissioned it whilst we were in India as a birthday treat about 5 years ago. It's trebled in value since then.
