Aimee and myself are lucky to study at a university that is within such beautiful
scenery. The land our campus stands on was once used by Henry IV as hunting
grounds and was bought in 1909 by Philip Sassoon who used it to entertained
his celebrity friends such as Charlie Chaplin. It was for a visit by Winston
Churchill that on the fields to the front of the manor house hundreds of
daffodils were planted to greet him on arrival. And guess what, they are still
here. We thought we'd take the opportunity to share with you
our outfits and the amazing weather London has been having.
This sun suit is from the early 40s, handmade out of printed cotton it's made up
of a halter neck sun dress and beach jacket. The skirt is so tiny I have to wear
little white shorts underneath which you can just see peeking out!
This is one of my favourites of Aimee's summer outfits. Her sweet 50s lace inlet
blouse is from America on Ebay. Also check out her budding bakelite bangle
collection! She just bought a box load from the states and we shared them out
Here's a shot of the sun suit without the jacket. I also slipped the shorts of as
I bought Aimee this 50s cotton print skirt for as one of her gifts for her Birthday
last year, I loved the floral print and I was happy to see she was as pleased with
receiving it as I was to find it.
