Pink Gingham for Summer

Tuesday 8 March 2016

A sweet summer look from Unique Vintage!

1950s Pink Gingham Halter Dress - c/o Iconic by Unique Vintage
Pleated Sun Hat with Bow - c/o Unique Vintage
Strawberry Wicker Purse - Natasha Marie Clothing also available at Unique Vintage
Koolah and Guula Brooch - c/o Erstwilder
Shoes - Wittner

I am a sucker for a cute gingham dress and I was yet to find the perfect pink gingham dress until I saw this one from Unique Vintage. This dress is fully lined, has elastic at the back, a fixed halter and it has pockets! I went with my regular size small and found the fit to be perfect, with the elastic at the  back it makes the dress a nice fit with a bit of extra room. This is another perfect summer dress and a great way to enjoy the last of the warm weather.

I really wanted to pair a hat with this dress for my UV summer look and of course for sun protection. This hat also from Unique Vintage is amazing, I wear sun hats all throughout summer and I love how elegant this one is with the structured shape, pleats and bow. It's nice and dramatic too, I just love how well they go together.

I received my strawberry wicker purse for my birthday in December and just love it so much, strawberries are one of my favourite fruits and I love purses, so this was meant to belong with me after having my eye on it for so long! And how could I not pin this Erstwilder brooch to my dress? I really adore their Australiana range and had to have the Koala brooch in my collection.

Thank you to those who left such lovely comments on my previous post, I very much appreciate it. x

  1. This dress is SUPER pretty - oh that we had the gorgeous weather you're getting right now so that I could wear something similar, it was snowing again here this morning, just when I thought it was finally starting to look like spring! I love dresses with that elasticated back - it makes the fit so much better for me and means I can get away with eating more ;D

  2. I love the drama of that hat, it really sets off the rest of the simple and sweetly pretty outfit! You can't really go with a gingham sun dress and heeled sandals can you? I can't remember what warmth feels like, but your pictures can help me dream... xx

  3. That hat is so perfect! This whole look is beautiful, but the hat is the icing on the pretty cake. Welcome to the strawberry bag club, by the way ;) I love how you've put it with pink x

  4. This is the perfect gingham dress for sure!! You styled it so well, I LOVE the hat!

  5. This is such a charming, pretty outfit. I love classic pink and white gingham, and it has an especially dear spot in my heart because the first poodle skirt I ever had (made for me by my mom when I was just six years old) was in this fabric.
