I can’t be the only one who’s struggling to dress vintage in summer right? There’s just something about the colder weather that allows you to layer up, wear that vintage stole, gloves, or fascinators. But how do you dress vintage in a heatwave of 43degC? It’s even hotter than my own blood! When I developed this pictures, I cringed every time I see that I should’ve tucked my shirt tidier. Mom wouldn’t be impressed.

I wore this on a summery day around 33degC. I actually had a bit of rash from the heat last week, so I try to keep super cool and I choose to wear cotton :) This dear shirt of mine was a favorite that somehow escaped being featured in an outfit post. It’s a 70s deadstock shirt in 50s style, and I just love the upturned sleeves! I should really copy the shape and make similar shirts myself! Paired with my new 50s skirt, a friend actually said I look like a 50s schoolgirl. I took that as a compliment and put it in the pile with “you looked like a stewardess/teacher/Doris Day”.

I love that blouse...with the head scarf. You look great with such short hair, by the way!
