Well, it was good to finally feel the sun on my face this weekend. I hope it shone down on you too and has set you up for the week. Still got my cardi on though 😉

This cloche hat and gorgeous lace collar have been gifted to me by a work colleague. I was overwhelmed by her generosity, but she wanted to see them loved and used. I haven't seen a collar quite like this one and it certainly lifts a plain, long sleeved tee. The bag and brooch are both 1930s and two of my favourite accessories. .

Stone me, but Miss Ziggy Shortcrust has made it out of her Insta booth. A secondhand, 1980s, ensemble.

I was tagged by @life_on_mars96 to take part in the #1940sastheysawit challenge set by @that40skid. Take a photo and filter it back by 70 years. This was taken at The National Railway museum in York last summer. Every time I went near a carriage I could here camera phones clicking. I was a ready made vintage prop. Swipe to see the original, far less romantic version. @railwaymuseum.

It seems exactly the right day to wear this ensemble. Cardigan embroidered with little flowers, tweed skirt, accessorised with bunny brooch, chiffon scarf and pansy earrings. All 1960s and '50s. Cardigan from @hurdyburdyvintage

Happy Easter 🐇🐣

Not sure how I would describe this outfit but it's a lot of fun. 1990s long line jacket from Etsy shop Hippie Hat Vintage, Darcy Clothing pinstriped waistcoat from @cranevintage, 1970s dagger collar shirt and brown wide leg pants from @heydayvintagestyle. All topped off with the Tall Man's bowler hat. .

I'm rather fond of a Paisley pattern so swooped on this lovely men's evening scarf when I spotted it in @cranevintage. But it's not just for men and I'm wearing it in daylight hours. .

They say it's a womans prerogative to change her mind and Mother Nature is certainly doing that. Last Sunday I walked to work in a snow blizzard, yet just seven days later I'm basking in warm spring sunshine. But that's fine by me as I can wear a woollen scarf and a cotton tee. Today's outfit has been inspired by a gorgeous 1950s knitting pattern image. Swipe to take a look. My beautiful Miss Marple neck tie is by @misspitchypatchy.

I love dagger point collars and dramatic cuffs, so I couldn't let this shirt go! Shamrock or lucky clover (you decide) are embroidered on the cuffs, so today seems an appropriate day to wear this little 70s beauty.

The weather is spoiling us here in Newcastle today; mild with sunshine threatening to break through the cloud. So I'm risking a lighter weight coat but am sporting a cosy singlet beneath my shirt. Of course I must take gloves and a brolly...just in case. Well, it is England.

Today is so murky and misty it almost feels autumnal. Such a contrast to yesterday's spring like sunshine. So I'm dressing to the weather's dictate in a 1970s pure wool jacket, faux moleskin waistcoat, 1970s dagger collar shirt and 1970s pleated skirt. Accessories; Edwardian golfing boots, silk tie patterned with teeny white birds and a 1970s scarf decorated with art deco ladies. .

This humble little bag always brings a smile to my face. It is a lovingly hand made, time worn survivor, being at least sixty years old. But is still perfectly serviceable. And it has the most delicious warm red lining.
Are there any accessories you are taking care of that are guaranteed to raise your spirits?
