I’ve never used to be a huge fan of summer. But by now, I actually don’t know why. Warm temperatures, sunshine, and the buzzing of the busy bees – isn’t this just a dream? It’s still getting too hot for me easily, however, this is no longer a problem for me, as I simply defer my outdoor activites to the evening. And such a walk just before sunset is especially enchanting, isn’t it? The light is golden, the air is getting a bit colder, and the crickets are chirruping their evening song. Perefct to come down after a long and busy day. To match the summery mood, I’m wearing a dress in the colour of the sun: “Mabel” by The Seamstress of Bloomsbury has an amazing floral print on it and therefore not only attracs bees and butterflies.
Perfect for Summer: The retro Dress “Mabel” by The Seamstress of Bloomsbury
The 40s inspired dress is made of a light Crepe de Chine fabric and flutters amazingly in the warm summer wind. Lovely details like the ruffels at the skirt or the buttons at the top make it a real head-turner. Just as the “Navy Floral Print“, the print called “Mimosa” has beautiful red, white, blue, and green details.
To match the colour of the dress, I teamed it with a white vintage basket bag, red earrings by Glitter Paradise and comfortable wedges by Miss L-Fire. However, the most beautiful accessories in my opinion are the Glimmer RHT stockings by Secrets in Lace.

The soft and sheer nylon stockings not only feel great on the skin, they also add a lovely glow to ones legs, as they shimmer amazingly in the light. The reinforced heel and toe stockings are so delicate that they even can be worn in open shoes. I chose the colour “Porcelain”, which is perfect for my pale skin.
My suspender belt is by Secrets in Lace as well. In spring and summer, I love the wear the Speakeasy Fashion Garter Belt, which I already introduced in this blogpost. Underneath light summer dresses, it’s best to wear underwear in light or nude colours to avoid that everyone can see your bra and panty. 😉 One of my favourites beside the Speakeasy Set is the Satin Intrigue Shelf Bra in “Champagne” by Secrets in Lace.

A summery vintage Makeup
To match the summery 40s outfit, I chose a classy makeup with warm shades. As always, I start with a foundation like the Chanel CC Cream, for example. On my lids, I first apply the Urban Decay Primer Potion and use brown eyeshadow, afterwards. Lots of mascara enhances my eyelashes. On my cheeks, I apply bronzer and a little bit of red blush. The Dior Addict Fluid Stick in “Wonderland” finishes this classy summer makeup.
