I was so pleased with my new ‘Make Like Twiggy‘ dress which arrived this morning that I thought I’d share my sixties-inspired outfit. It feels strange and a little scary taking photos of myself and posting them on here though- I know lots of people do it, but its an odd feeling doing it for the first time! But still, I’ve been meaning to start doing outfit posts for ages and there’s no time like the present is there?

Besides, I’m following of my current mantra of doing at least 1 thing each day which scares me – so this is my out-of-my-comfort-zone thing for today!

It might not be the most practical outfit for a day of tramping through the woods and playing Pooh-sticks with my 6 year old, but hey, I’ve never let practicality stop me before, and besides – I’ve got my big winter boots on, right?

The black tights and boots mean I can wear a real sixties-style dress without looking like I’m going to a fancy dress party but the outfit still has a great 60s vibe thanks to that cute peter pan collar and super-short skirt (another reason for the thick tights to avoid the otherwise inevitable knicker-flashing!)

It’s also an excuse to wear my latest vintage find: Christine Dior Cocotte sunglasses – aren’t they fabulous? If you want to start wearing retro or vintage – sunglasses are a great place to start!

What do you think? (be kind!) If you’ve got any tips for taking good outfit photos, I’d love to hear them! 🙂

So from top to bottom:
