Seamstress of Bloomsbury Polkadot Outfit
How about an afternoon in the park? What would you wear on this occasion? On warm spring days I love to wear a light summery outfit by The Seamstress of Bloomsbury.
Here I am wearing my lovely Eva blouse in creme and a swing black and white polkadot skirt. I really love this combo. Particularly, I am in for polkadots because I am reminded of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. I find it quite interesting what she says about polkadots, One of her quotes goes as follows:
Polka dots can’t stay alone. When we obliterate nature and our bodies with polka dots we become part of the unity of our environments.
I love this quote which I also used in one of my recent Instagram posts because it very much expresses my wish for connection. Perhaps you remember my previous posts about ‘Vintage fashion as a life changer’ and ‘How to be a woman in full’.
In other words, I wish for real human connection and like a polkadot I don’t want to stay alone. I want to be part of the whole and also wish for some kind of heritage.
Anyways, that’s just an excursion into the nature of polkadots! Let’s get back to vintage inspired fashion. I quite like to combine this outfit with my beloved elegant summer straw hat. You’ve probably already seen it in a previous post about the Lisa-Mae dress.
As you know I am in for thrifted fashion and so this hat is also a secondhand find I’ve got at Oxfam last year. I can’t stress it enough how much I miss going to the thrift shops these days.
I also believe that nature is a great provider of source energy. Thus, just being surrounded by lovely flowers, helps me to feel connected with my environment. Hence, I am looking forward to spending more time basking in the sun and really taking beautiful moments in.Summing up, I feel that this Seamstress of Bloomsbury outfit is perfect for balmy spring and summer days. Polkadots are great means to feel connected to nature and my surroundings. How do you feel? Let me know in the comments below.
