Come fly with me!

Hello my lovelies! How is your weekend treating you? Hopefully with long, leisurely lie-ins and time spent with loved ones? I am enjoying a rare few days off work, so I'm making the most of my free time to indulge in favourite, playing with the kids (yes, I still play!), a spot of shopping, and catching up on a few bullet points on the old 'to-do-list'! One of those being a sort out of my wardrobe. Since I started work, I have been quite lazy with putting thought and effort into my daily outfits. I love dressing up, but the corporate environment of the office only allows for monochromatic black and white! How unimaginative! Those who know me, can tell you just how this goes against every fibre in my rainbow searching being! So today I decided to reach for that little red frock in my wardrobe that I had thrifted quite some time ago. Today, was going to be a red day!

Now, I put this outfit together, starting with the red dress, and adding  a wonderful vintage hat which I had acquired about two years ago. I adore this hat!

Does it remind you of something? Hubby calls it my air hostess hat! Hmmm? And now, having put the whole outfit together, I definitely understand what he means! There is a definite air of 'cabin crew' about it!

Just look at this 1960's air stewardess! 

Perhaps a quirky handbag and cheery shoes will add a touch of fun to the whole ensemble, and make it a little less 'come fly with me?'

I'll leave you with these archival gems...
Flying in the fifties... here's a change...

And they got shorter still!
Swinging sixties...Can't imagine these being discreet coming down the emergency shute...But then I suppose THAT would be the least of your worries!

I think me and my short pins will stick with the classy 1940's!, just need to find me a pilot! Till next time!

I really would love it if you stopped a while to say 'hello'! Please leave comments here. I read and appreciate every single word, and will always endeavor to write back, but if I don't, it is only because life's demands on my time has got the better of me! Thank you for stopping by!
