What I Wore..Endless Summer

Blouse: Target  Skirt: Red Velvet 
Belt: Thrifted  Shoes: Thrifted 
Brooch: Vintage  Sunglasses: Wilde Asher (coming soon)

Right now I'm celebrating the last few days of Summer.  It's been an amazing few month, full of lovely moments, thrifting adventures and caravan renovations.  For me, this Summer has been all about embracing colour in my world, stepping outside my safety net and taking a leap into the unknown.  In the world of colour, I'm trying out blue again, my mum dressed me in lovely shades of blue growing up, somehow over the years I drifted away from it.  But this blouse certainly called me back.  How could I resist, a Peter Pan collar, perfect sleeves and scalloped edges! I'm so delighted it worked with my recent purchase from Red Velvet.  This skirt made me smile as soon as I saw it and some how sums up my endless summer, new friends, new adventures and new colours. Now I'm looking forward to taking my Summer love of colour in to Autumn.

Are you looking forward to a change in seasons?
Much Love


  1. The skirt is amazing, plus the scallop detail on the blouse?! So good!

    Catherine, XO.

  2. Oh my goodness...that top is the cutest! Don't you just love Target?

    Also, I'm sorry to hear that summer is coming to an end for you :( Here in the states, it's winter that is coming to an end soon (THANK GOODNESS!)

  3. Cute outfit Sophie! Oh my YES I am looking forward to a change for the better... SPRING! I do love dear Edinburgh but my my my is it unpleasant up here this time of year! I'd love to be in Australia right about now... (actually, it has always been a dream of mine!) xoxo

  4. I love your blouse! How long ago did you buy it? I would love to own one like that, but I haven't seen that at Target.

  5. Oh, you look darling!
    I'm definitely looking forward to a change of season. It's still winter here, but the wet kind. I don't really like the dark, wet, cold season - I'm a summer gal :-)

    Go on wearing bright colours in winter - that makes winter so much more beautiful!

  6. I'm such a sucker for a floral skirt, it's so lovely! And the scallops on your blouse add another dose of sweetness. I'm really looking forward to spring, even though Florida winters are nothing to whine about :)

  7. Love the skirt! It is so beautiful! I am so jealous of your weather right now. It is freezing and windy in Pennsylvania. I keep praying for spring to get here fast. :)


  8. gorgous outfit. i love that blouse, and i would have never thought to pair it with that skirt, but it works perfectly! just lovely.

  9. i LOVE this outfit! reminds me of summer. beautiful colours! precious

  10. I have to say that I have always been a beige girl. But thanks to you and other blogs I read I am inspired to show my more colorful side :)

  11. the skirt looks great on, but the blouse steals the show! I love it!

  12. I'm so in love with this whole look and the background makes the outfit. So pretty!!

  13. Oh my gosh yes- SO looking forward to the end of summer and the return of my true love Autumn. I can't stand the hot weather (I know I live in the wrong country, I'm working on that) so the quicker we get doused in rain and orange leaves, the better!

  14. Ooo that skirt is amazing! And so is that blouse! I can't believe its from Target!! Such lovely pictures!
