Happy Birthday to Me! Sunday Best

If you hadn't guest already, it's my Birthday today! Woop! And naturally, as it happens to fall on a Sunday this year, I get the chance to wear my Sunday Best :)
Celebrations were held last night, so today is just a nice relaxing, car booting and film watching recovery day. Due to car-booting activities, it was a necessity to also be warm and practical with outfit choices. So I dug out my most smart country wear; tweed jacket, riding skirt, boots and fur. I also got to wear my birthday present from the Mister. This beautiful feather earring from a local stall. I absolutely love it :) I've been very spoilt this year, but more on that in another post! 
I wore my big mess of morning after curly hair in a pinned up birds nest. And this is what it looked like after an afternoon of rummaging at the Brighton Racecourse Car Boot. It held amazingly considering the gale it was blowing up there, hah!

Tweed Jacket -  Part of a 1940's Cyrril A. Castle Suit
(the chap behind Roger Moore's James Bond suits! Lucky charity shop find!!)
1950's Riding Skirt - To Be Worn Again, Brighton
Fur scarf - from our trip to Berlin
Earring - Present from the Mister
Thank you to everyone who made it out last night! Now I shall start putting my feet up, tucking in to some popcorn and stuff my face with pizza for a night of films films films :)
Much Love from Brighton,


  1. Happy Birthday!!! I'm a new follower, and am enjoying reading your lovely blog, and am pleased you're a car-boot fan, I was out at one this morning and got a couple of vintage brooches for 50p each, and then sobbed when I talked to someone whose daughter had recently bought a 1920s rhinestone gown for 2 quid at the same sale.

    Enjoy the rest of the day!


  2. Happy Birthday! Your outfit is great!
