Summer Beach!

This gorgeous skirt was custom made for me to wear and feature on my blog. It's by an etsy business called Violets in May
This business is located in the United Kingdom, the beautiful owner Lola creates and sells wonderful designed vintage inspired outfits, you can either get something custom made (like I have) or choose an outfit that's listed on her etsy business Violets in May.
I just love the leaf print and the colours in this skirt, I can wear a lot of different colour tops with it, that I absolutely love! 
I found this skirt to be very well made and the length great for my height.
It's made from a sturdy cotton, has a zip fastening, a waist band and is a gathered full swing skirt. I actually chose not to wear a petticoat underneath, as I found it was full enough, plus I didn't want to wear one to the beach.
The light blue top I'm wearing is the "cross your heart bombshell pinup tank" and is from Le Bomb Shop  I actually own a few of these tops and I adore them, they are so stylish and great to wear especially in the summer in hot tropical Queensland. 
 You can wear this top a few different ways for example, crossed in the back (like I have) crossed in the front or have one strap just going across the front.  These tops have a sweetheart neckline, with a twisted bust detail and lightly padded breast cups. They come in sizes small to extra large and are made from 96% polyester and 4% spandex. They are currently listed on Le Bomb Shop's website for $18.99 each (US).
Accessories Include:
Sandals from Bait Footwear 
Star Burst Brooch from Erstwilder 
Sunglasses and tiki bangles from YOSPS 
Parasol from an ebay seller
Pink loop earrings from  Daisy Jean Floral Designs 
These photos were taken by my good friend "Miss Vera Vamp" a few weeks ago at a sleepy seaside beach called Woodgate. After these photos were taken, my friend and I chatted and relaxed on the beach for a couple of hours.  I made sure I applied the sunscreen, as I didn't want to get burnt like I did last time I was on the beach taking blog photos.
In other news I had a lovely but quiet Christmas/New Year, I was just happy to have a few days off over both weekends.
I'm on the countdown now until my birthday, that's in a couple of weeks. Then going away for a few days to Ballarat, Victoria in February to attend a big rockabilly/vintage festival called Ballarat Beat and even check out some of the vintage shops. My Mum, my sister and myself are all going together. I'm really looking forward to it!

Happy New Year to you all, I hope 2017 is really great to you all!

Until next time!

  7. You look gorgeous, as always. I love the top with the full skirt and it certainly doesn't need a petticoat if it's that full as it is! I love the summery feeling of these photos and the beach looks so lovely, especially since it's rainy outside and the snow is getting wet and slushy.

  8. Gorgeous outfit! I love all the colors in the skirt and love the blue top and hair accessory you paired with it. How fantastically full that skirt is even without a petticoat! Hope you have a great time in Victoria coming up!
