Vintage Umbrella


This umbrella has been in the cupboard under the stairs for as long as I can remember. It's made out of a really thick waxy material, and has a lovely wooden handle. I thought today would be the perfect day to bring it out, as it's raining here in England. (That's the sad thing about summer here... it's just the same as winter).

I'm enjoying a nice cup of tea right now. There is something so beautiful about drinking a cup of tea and watching it rain outside - does anyone else agree?

Cardigan - La Redoute
Tights - Topshop
Belt - Vintage (I seem to wear this belt ALL the time)
Dress - Not sure!

I'm quite excited because I just won some dresses on eBay! I'll take some photos when they arrive :D.

Gosh I certainly love your blog (I found it when searching for dungarees - my current obsession - and found your old post) that umbrella is lovely.
I quite agree about watching the rain, in fact summer in my least favourite season. I adore the rain, and the cold, and the winter clothes. You can bundle up, and there's a certain duffell coat I've had my eye on.
Oh and thank you for the tips on boot sales in your previous blog, I'm hoping to head to one on thursday so I'll be sure to take your advice into consideration.

oh gosh, you look so cute. I love the umbrella. I wish I had super cute umbrellas like that (I have a clear bubble one I rather like) but I hardly ever carry them, even when it's raining. In Washington state hardly anyone carries umbrellas, despite the fact it rains all the time. I guess we're just so used to getting soaked it doesn't bother us anymore.

That umbrella is amazing....and it looks so beautiful with your outfit! I need to find a cute umbrella....I have an icky black one purchased in a downpour at the drugstore!

I've always wanted a plaid umbrella. That one is so lovely!

The Twisted Cool Rocker said...

I like the look that's in your photo. It's simple but sophisticated at the same time, and the umbrella is very beautiful and elegant.

I still have not found an umbrella that really struck me, all I see I look ugly and dull. Maybe it's because I'm very picky, haha ...

I can not wait to see your dress, I hope you arrive soon.

Kisses!

In espa├▒a thankfully the summer is to be roasted of heat, nevertheless in winter it does very much coldly.

i like much to find so brilliant things hereabouts. A kiss
