Red 1950s dress with a new peach cardigan

red, peach and white

These pictures are from the weekend, when I went to up Aberdeen to celebrate my friend’s birthday. An opportunity for a different garden based outfit photo location! and lots of flower photos again!

I bought this cardigan new while I was up there, its the first time I’ve bought anything new and full price from a high street shop in literally years! It’s the boyfriend cardigan from New Look. I needed something to cover me up because it’s cold up there in the North, even with the sun. And a couple of my friends swear by these cardies and I’ve always liked the ones they’ve got. I quite suprised myself with my colour choice, it’s much softer a shade than what I usually go for, but nice isn’t it.

    Oh you KNEW I would love the who shaboodle didn't you, wicked Franca? I love that red red red dress on you and the softer shade of cardi is perfect with it- it softens but doesn't stifle the fire engine red of the dress. Or the purse! Where have you been hiding that from me? And of course the garden in full bloom with the cheerful pansies, daisies, lily and azaleas are set to get my heart a singing! Happy Bday to your friend!

    I love cardigans – I'm slowly amassing a collection so that I have the right colours to go with most of my dresses. Also, I love the red dress! I really like the direction you're taking your outfit shots in, they're beautiful x

    I love all of this.  The dress is amazing – great color and perfect fit.  And I never would have thought to pair peach and red and I'm kicking myself for not.  And that necklace?  LOVE.

    Ooh, I love the saturated coral red of the dress and purse, and the peachy cardigan is a very pretty tone for you.  Enjoy it!
