Tropical Jungle!

I recently purchased this cute tropical 1940's inspired play-suit from an Australian dressmaker and etsy business called Jack's Daughter
The lovely owner and dressmaker Jenni of Jack's Daughter specializes in "one off" vintage inspired creations. Either reproduced from original vintage patterns or she can even draft patterns from vintage garments and from Haslam pattern books to your specific measurements. 
Some of her garments she currently has for sale on her etsy page include play-suits, overalls, skirts, blouses, tops and 1940's/50's vintage inspired dresses.
Even feel free to message Jenni if your after a "one of" vintage inspired outfit for yourself!
This 1940's vintage inspired play-suit is called "Chrissy."  I love the tropical/parrots pattern so much and the material is made of a soft rayon.
The blouse is attached to the back of the shorts only. The blouse then tucks into the front and joins with buttons on the waistband.  There is also white retro style buttons down the front of the blouse and down one side of the shorts to get in and out of this play-suit.
The shorts have a lot of leg room and are pleated at both the front and back.  I found this cute outfit quite comfortable and cool to wear whilst taking these photos on a hot humid day.
Accessories Include:
Wedges from Payless Australia
Pink purse from Lola Von Rose
Hibiscus hair-flower from Soda Sweethearts
Green clip-on earrings from Daisy Jean Floral
Palm brooch from Kmart Australia
Bangles from various boutiques
This week's blog photos were taken at Maroochy Botanical gardens, located on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. I knew I wanted a tropical/rain-forest type background for these photos, to showcase this gorgeous play-suit and this location was a perfect spot to do so.
In other news I've just been working, taking photos for my blog on the weekends, and doing general things at home.
Nearly two weeks ago I went to a rockabilly festival in Brisbane, Queensland called Redlands Revival.  It was a lovely day, but a very hot day and did end up getting a little burnt around my shoulders.  I ended up purchasing myself a beautiful dress, I hope to share with you all in the near future.

Until next time!
