Blue at British Museum

Ahoy! An outfit post, at last. My girlfriend is in town (weee! ♥) and we had pretty much the perfect London day yesterday. We spent the morning at a seminar, paid a visit to British Museum to see some mummies and medieval things, visited the Gothic Southwark Cathedral and completed the day by watching Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty's Theatre. Even the weather was wonderful!

I wore my favorite 50s dress that works nicely for both day and evening wear. Wore a light blue cardigan to keep me warm and brogues for a day of walking. Victory rolls and a snood for hair. Thought I'd make an outfit post a little more interesting than usual by having my pictures taken at the British Museum.

Dress - 1950s vintage (via Ebay, coffee_colored_cadillac)
Sweater - Dorothy Perkins
Handbag - 1950s vintage (via Tampere Vintage)
Shoes - River Island
Stockings - What Katie Did (fully fashioned)
Hair snood - Arthelia's Attic
Earrings - Gift from my sweetheart
