Gardening Gal!

These 1940's swing trousers are by UK vintage inspired brand Vivien of Holloway
They are in bottle green.  These trousers are so comfortable, yet stylish and really feel like your wearing a pair of trousers from the 1940's.
These trousers are high-waisted, have four good size buttons down the side, have lots of leg room, and the fabric is 65% polyester and 35% cotton. I ordered the trousers in waist: 32 inches and hips: 44 inches and they fit wonderfully.  I find when ordering online from Vivien of Holloway always follow their size measurements and you won't have much trouble with sizing!

I paired these trousers with my new work blouse in mint green from Freddies of Pinewood
This blouse is made from 100% cotton and will look great with jeans, dungarees or trousers. On the Freddies of Pinewood site there are many other colour's in their work blouses to choose from.

Also I accessorized with my new pink hair-snood and green clip-on earrings from Daisy Jean Floral Designs
The hair-snood is made from a soft rayon and features a criss cross netting with an elastic base (I found it stayed comfortably in my hair all day). These green earrings are clip-on's which I don't usually wear, as I have my ears pieced. But these felt great to wear - they never pulled or hurt my ears at all.
Other Accessories Include:
Saddles shoes from Bait Footwear 
Wicker vintage handbag from a facebook buy/sell/swap group
Cat-eye glasses from an ebay seller
Flower vintage brooch thrifted
Braclets from a fashion jewellery boutique
I took these blog photos just around home, with my camera and tripod.  As this outfit is 1940's factory/working inspired, hence the gardening rake as I wanted to make it feel like a "working theme" for these blog photos! Whilst still showing, how wonderfully stylish this 1940's theme outfit is.
In other news I've just been working and doing general chores at home.
This weekend though, I'm planning on going up to Bundaberg, Queensland to visit family and to catch up with Miss Vera Gin Vintage to take blog photos again, we usually get around at taking photos of each other in two different outfits at certain locations for both our vintage inspired blogs.
So I'm looking forward to that!

Until next time!

  6. Fabulous outfit! These pants look soooo great on you! I have a very similar pair, in terms of both cut and colour, from Heyday and get a huge amount of wear out of them. Bottle green is as good as a neutral in my books, and I find that I most often pair it with shades of brown, navy blue, pink (as you'd stylishly done here), orange, mustard yellow, and burgundy.

    Big hugs & happy weekend wishes,
    ♥ Jessica
