Suburban style

Hello! Happy Friday! Here is an outfit post brought to you by my garden and its delightful environs.

Top: River Island
Jeans: c/o Vivien of Holloway
(sorry I'm doing so much c/o stuff... I'm just always excited to wear it!)
Belt: Mum's from the 80s
Shoes: Liberty x Nikes

Delightful, slightly broken fence
Mysteriously dry/dead grass despite all the rain
Lovely lush plants, thanks to all the rain

Pocket/bum/my lovely new grey nailvarnish

Tired face/earrings bought from Bow & Crossbones
Hair left au naturel as it's not enjoying the constant straightening...

Still loving the era clash of 1987 Nike design and 1940s Liberty fabric <3

Quite impressed with the lined-up-ness of the stripes on the chest pocket...
high street stuff ain't always shoddy! 

That's all folks... more soon! Have great weekends.

Fleur xx


  1. I love the pants! I can imagine those with a million different looks. What a good piece to have for summer. And I like clashing eras, too.

  2. Those jeans are great, love the stripes too. x

  3. Very appropriate, Fleur! Love it! Enjoy your weekend! :-)

  4. You've convinced me about VOH Jeans... have been thinking about having a wardrobe revamp after buying one of their dresses for that Tweed Run... the jeans look perfect on you! x

  5. I am always surprised, that while many in the main-stream world of fashion seem to waer Liberty print designs, there seems, im my view, fewer than there perhaps ought to be on the Vintage scene / blog world, given the enormous contribution that Liberty & Co. have made over the years, both as a retailer and and a producer of their own designs, to what has become known as 'vintage'.


    1. Sorry about my spelling!

  6. I just wanted to say that I really admire how you've embraced mixing up your style and wearing some modern things and have continued to blog your outfits, despite not being 100% vintage or whatever. I used to blog over at Cici Speaks and completely stopped when my style began to shift. When I went back to school I started to feel vintage had less and less of a place in my life, and now I have almost completely sold off my collection and rarely wear the few pieces I have left, though I still enjoy the clothing and vintage bloggers/sewers. Especially now that I, like you, have become way more physically active than I have been in the past as I train to become a firefighter, I feel myself wanting to show off more. :P

    Keep doing what you're doing, it works!

  7. The perfect outfit for an American Independence day bar-b-cue! LOL! I love the mix of stripes and florals (from the shoes). And I think the softer look of your make-up (no red lips) is just as lovely as when you go all out. Of course when you are a beauty like yourself, you could wear dirt on your face and still be gorgeous.

    Thanks doll,
    The Glamorous Housewife

  8. Those jeans are fab - heading over to Vivienne's now!

  9. Loving the era-clash trainers, never get tired of trainers + classic print combos!

    If you want some lawn, ours is currently like a jungle. The rain seems to have sent it into overdrive! I can't take outfit posts out there as I'm afraid I'll get lost in it and fight my way to survival like a channel 5 documentary haha!

  10. Send over those trainers and jeans please - I want! Lynnette x

  11. I really love this natural looking photo shoot and outfit. It's very rare for me to get excited about jeans, but when I've regained my body after having a child, these might be the reward. If I can rock them with 1/100 of the class and cool that you do, I'll be very happy. Hope you're enjoying some summer in the fleeting moments it comes!

  12. my gf would love those jeans. i'm sure she's tried on a dress by that brand too, polkdot i think
