What Would Twiggy Do?

My fashion dream when I became pregnant was to find some 1960s style dresses with empire waists, loud, colourful prints and bell sleeves, somewhat like the glorious dresses below.

Unfortunately, they only existed in my imagination. However, I was lucky in that I found one sweet dress, which I call the Twiggy dress. It's a simple, cute, white summer dress.

(The dress demanded some mini daisies.)

Outfit: White Twiggy dress, Topshop maternity; yellow ballet flats, Clarks. 

And finally, a classic photo of the insouciant, Lolita-like Twiggy at her finest. Only Twiggy can make slightly frustrated boredom look this alluring.

A white dress and some peaches evoke summer for me. What are your summer staples?

    Considered eliminating the word verification, it really is a pain...

  2. That dress is unbelievably perfect, and I love the mod associations you have going on with the yellow shoes and daisies in the hair. Very Twiggy indeed!

  3. I have to agree with the others, you look adorable. Thanks for showing my sewing pattern, I'm a new follower. Cheers!
