Vintage Outfit for a Chilly Spring Day
I live in Northern Germany where the weather is still very changeable in spring. Some days in March and even in April are quite chilly so that you can’t go without a wool coat. Recently, I did a little photo walk at a place nearby my apartment. I’ve loved that the sun was coming out for a bit but all in all it was a very cool day.
I strolled along Kuhmühle and Wartenaubrücke which are parts of the Alster in Hamburg. I was wearing my lovely Collectif Pearl Coat in navy blue and my plum-coloured Charlie Stone booties again. You might have seen me wearing these two items already in my post about Vintage Winter Chic. Excuse me, I am an outfit repeater!
However, I feel it is quite alright to wear the same items over and over again but in other combinations. I am also a minimalist when it comes to lifestyle. Hence, I love versatile pieces of clothing that can be worn and combined in different ways.
Tartan Skirt and True Vintage Bag
I am also a great lover of tartan skirts. Here I am wearing a red and black wool tartan skirt by Laura Ashley. I was very happy when I’ve thrifted this high quality pleated skirt last year at an Oxfam shop. I think this skirt comes very close to an original kilt. Of course, you could also combine this blouse with red tartan pants.
I’ve combined it with the navy blue bow tie Eva blouse by The Seamstress of Bloomsbury and a cream-coloured cardigan by Voodoo Vixen. By the way, check out my other article about the navy Lisa-Mae dress that is a staple in my wardrobe.
I’ve worn this outfit with a true vintage Ackery London bag in wine red. I feel that navy and red tones are a perfect combo. By the way, I am a fan of true vintage handbags. Thus, last year I bought my first true vintage bags from the UK. I guess I’ve already mentioned this in my first post on this blog.
I’ve got this handbag from Lukeman Antiques via Ebay, by the way. I quite like Ackery London vintage bags because they have a strong heritage and are quite luxurious. Ackery London has supplied handbags to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, and to the United Kingdom’s first female Prime Minister Lady Thatcher since the 1950s and 60s.
Last but not least, I’ve worn some vintage inspired sky blue earrings by Vintage Dream with this outfit. I hope you’ve liked this little photo walk on a chilly day. Let me know in the comments below what you think!
