A Walk in the Garden

IMG_4168

Time for another new summer frock, this is a sailor style navy cotton with a white navy trim collar, white bow and white buttons. There is a pleat at the back with a tiny bow detail. It was perfect for a walk in the garden…..

These photos were taken at the magnificent Altamont Gardens in County Carlow. Can you see the peacock on the balustrade at the top of the stairs? Unfortunately the house is closed but it looks so beautiful.

Ladies Who Lunch

IMG_3878

A lunch invitation at the Big House, what to wear? Well, I thought a white strapless full skirted dress with a marching bolero style jacket would be perfect. I finished it off with a white plaited leather belt, to cinch in the waist. This is a really fine, light vintage cotton worn with a frilly crinoline to make the skirt extra full.

Next frock is a  a rose pink vintage silk dress with ribbon detailing, the skirt is a full gathered skirt, it makes the waist look tiny!

I think the ladies are well dressed for the occasion. The location was Belvedere House in Mullingar, another fantastic old house worth a visit.

 

Time for aperitifs….
