Yes, there’s still a nip in the air (in fact, it’s absolutely freezing in our little town in the Kent countryside, today!) but whilst the sun is shining, one can quite easily feel that it IS Spring, and even though we might still wish to layer upon layer; it is time to turn our thoughts to softer, floatier fabrics and colours too.
How about layering this pretty chemise underneath a slightly shorter dress, with just the broderie anglaise hem peeking through, teamed with a cute little cardi, opaque tights and dolly shoes? Warm enough to be worn now but with a hint of warmer times to come.
Now you all know that I love all things Victoriana, especially the quirkier, seamier side of life. I am aware that not everyone shares that passion, however, and also felt the need to search for a softer, distinctly Spring-like feel that still kept the Modern Victorian look at its heart.
Loving the determined and somehow quite self-satisfied look on this charming gal’s face (below). It’s as though she’s bested some dastardly bully on the hockey pitch. Great just teamed with jeans or a flippy skirt, tights (blue legs are never a good look, ladies) and biker boots.
I just love this colour combination of sky blue (I always think of it as Wedgewood blue) with a light wheaty beige. Cosy yet distictly Spring-ish rather than Wintery looking, I feel. It’s a tonic for the heart, I swear.
How can you not fall completely in love with this darling Bearded Lady cushion? It’s the traditional pattern & colouring with the striking overlay of the Victorian print that I adore – the conventional slammed together with the bizarre – my favourite style rule of thumb, from homewares right through to fashion!
This pretty little white linen eyelet top has something incredibly feminine and frivolous about it – I could equally see this worn layered with a long boyfriend-style camel cardigan and leggings & ankle boots. Maybe even desert boots (though I’m not absolutely convinced about them yet).
Do have a gander at all the shops listed below – they are a treasure trove of delectable pieces. 🙂

Well, I hope you have enjoyed this little tiptoe through a softer side of modern Victorian style, darlings!
Until next time…
Yours, with Spring in her heart,
