OOTD- 1940's pin up girl

Hello Lovelies!

Last year when I was in 'Guys and Doll's' I fell a little bit in love with 1940's fashion and as my post- fotd-and-hotd-1940s-style seemed to be pretty popular, today I thought I'd show you the summery outfit that I wore on Sunday which is inspired by the 1940's/50's pin up girl look...



Top- New Look
Shorts- Topshop
Flip flops- New Look
Sun glasses- Primark
Necklace- H.Samuels
Lipstick- MUA shade 16 'nectar' 


As demonstrated by the gorgeous pin up girl below, high waisted hot pants and crop tops were all the rage in the 40's and 50's and I think this is definitely a trend that needs to come back this summer as I love how it reveals in what my opinion is the most flattering and classy bit of the body and creates a sexy hour glass figure. My Topshop shorts are perfect for creating this pin up look as they are pretty short, but go up rather high, so I don't feel too naked just wearing a crop top with them! My tie up crop top is great too as you can have it as short or long as you want depending what's appropriate and the print and colour is so pretty.


My sun glasses were another Primarni bargain at about £2.50 and I got them because I thought their quirky shape and slight leopard print gave them a really cool vintage look. I thought I should also mention that I'm wearing the MUA lipstick in the shade 16 'nectar' in these photos, they'll be more on this later as I've been on a bit of a bargain lipstick spree, but basically I love it and think its pinky coral tone is a perfect daytime alternative to red. 

What do you think of my pin up inspired look? Are you a fan of vintage styles?

I had such a nice time today lunching and mooching around town with my lovely friends Anna and Lydia, who I always need lots of catch ups with when we're home for the holidays. And the loveliness of my day continues as one of my best friends, Matt is coming over later for a night of musicals and oreos and peanut butter (trust me you should try this), bliss...

Have a good night everyone!
Love Meg
