It's been over 6 weeks since I last posted. A part of me felt I would never get round to blogging again but I've missed it so much. I've struggled through work and assignments where the only reason I went online. I also had people I thought where friends be extremely rude and killed my blogging vibe- which is ironic as blogging has given me more friends than I ever had.

I neglected my appearance, and when your biggest interest in life is pin up fashion avoiding make up (as it irritated my stressed skin) and neglecting my straighteners I didn't feel pin up. Now I actually have time off and getting back the lost sleep I'm ready to care for myself again.

I know the phrase is you are what you eat- and if you put goodness in you you'll glow- but I've always believed the other way too. If externally you're happy,internally you are too-its why dying my hair improves my mood so much. I don't want to dwell on how low I have been feeling-I would much rather share my beautiful clothes! This is what I wore to the British Bells Pin Up Picnic In The Park several weeks ago.

Skirt: Pin Up Girl Clothing (similar here and here)
Halterneck top: Vintage (similar here and here)
Petticoat: Hell Bunny (similar here and here)
Parasol: Vintage (similar here and here)

I promise I was also wearing shoes- but I love the feel of grass under my feet so I kicked them off as soon as we got to Hyde Park.

This AMAZING Queen of Hearts Jenny skirt is the most beautiful thing I have ever owned. I didn't see the appeal of the Jenny until I wore this and I'm hooked! 

The gathering at the waist gives the skirt some serious fullness (I don't really need a petticoat underneath) and the print itself is beautiful. The only down side is the sizing. I bought a 2xl for the waist (36 inches) but its actually a little baggy, nothing that adding a hook and eye or button wont fix. unlike my PUG capris I bought this skirt from Deadly Is The Female (a UK site) and they're awesome- fast, safe shipping and a lot cheaper overall.

I paired it with a vintage halterneck (and no bra obviously) and took my vintage parasol for its first and only trip this year.

    Interesting what you said about if you are externally happy, you are internally too. I find it doesn't require much (makeup and glittery accessories) and I am like a different person. My mood will lighter, more upbeat and so too will be the food that I eat: poached salmon, quiche and salad rather than a packet of Hobnobs.
