50's style jeans & Dr Martens!
These are my favourite summer jeans. Found in Napier in NZ, during a cool snap, from a great funky vintage style shop called Two Lippy Ladies, imagine my shock when I discovered they had come all the way from the UK, from Hell Bunny, an on-line retro store. Talk about coals to Newcastle! But they were still a reasonable price (about £50) but, sadly, I can't see them on their site at the moment.
I wore these 50s style cropped jeans in NZ with my favourite travelling Skechers trainers, a pre-loved Australian top and my usual headscarf and vintage sunnies.
Back at home in the UK, I've worn them with another pre-loved retro top,, one of my very favourite shirts that you must have seen before, and styled it up with other old stuff: a headscarf, vintage sunnies, jewellery and best of all my matching Dr Martens, bought last year.(they have a sale of similar shoes on-line). You're never too old for DMs! Pop on a Toast cardi, and you've got a comfortable, funky outfit that will take you anywhere, whatever the temperature! Hope you like.

Hope this little look into my casual summer wardrobe has given you some ideas. And I look forward to your comments!
See you soon,
