Her Royal Tilt.

Somebody told me that this combo of colours was something related to our British Queen or in some way some traditional British colours.
I may admit I didn't know about this but anyway it kind of fit with what I wanted to expose today.
I expected this post to be vintage and retro as "usual" cause I know myself well but I mainly wish to give the impression of a female Robin Hood character thanks to my green tilt hat... Don't know about you , but to me it's exactly what I can imagine !
Robin Hood was a character spreading the idea of freedom, fighting for peace like so many other. Even contested sometimes I want to embrace a similar role towards feminism.
This word so altered and denied is a simple step to face reality or should I say inequality.
I don't want to be only for one gender type, please do not get me wrong. I am not even trying to tell this to blame men. No, that will definitely be the opposite.
I wish to be feminist and to blame women. Why ? Because I think , there is still so much to progress and it shameful than some of this evolution is paused because there is some women who don't want to think about it and who think they're happy like they are.
It is because of you: Old woman who thinks that's only the way we use to do. It is because of you: Young Pin-up girl who thinks old was good so it's normal to be a good "housewife" and to be proud of the name. It is because of you: The lady who only dresses in Gray, black, or in Summer White maybe. The good length of a skirt will be under or just above the knees but that's all.
I wouldn't try to be too good at work because anyway I will have kids one day.
I am a good person because I am a teacher, a doctor or anything if only I could tag myself.

Outfit is:
Hat: by Cindy, from the Vintage Hat Shop
Blouse: from a Rétro Party I attended recently, the Blogger Slanelle was thrifting her wardrobe !
Skirt: Sweetbeefinds, lovely Etsy Seller !
 (Plus, I wear no Petitcoat , it is great was it has a good shape from the start)
So Women , I know being the "firsts" to do something I know it's hard. But please do what you want to do. And think. Think of what YOU really want.
Do not hide behind something. Behind a style, a job, a husband, a wife, parents, children, people and fake ideas. 

Shoes: My Touch of Pink from Tapouillon Vintage
Coat: this Summer Sixties Coat is Amazing , isnt it? From SomeLikeitVintage shop.

  1. I'm agree with you, women have to advance still many more. I don't understand how some women can underestimate herselfs actually, in century XXI... We can do everything we want and in the way we want, and nobody can stop us!!
    You look gorgeous with that floral skirt and that "Robin Hood girl" style. FANTASTIC LORNA!! :D


    1. Thank you so much Estelle! Yes I know its hard but we fight , or rather "keep" fighting for.

  2. Lorna, i just saw you comment in my blog and decided to visit yours too! Well, i just loved it all, i'm in love with your outfits... and you are so pretty! Following you, babe xo

  3. Gorgeous, gorgeous, oh my word, gorgeous!!! These is such sweetness and light and stylish beauty flowing through this floral filled ensemble. It lifts the spirit to see and sings with the harmonic tones of spring's most appealing qualities.

    1. Yes, it was the Spring Outfit of the moment indeed! You got it right Jess!

  4. Very cute outfit, love the blouse :)

  5. Thank you so much for your comment! I'm so glad you did because going thru your blog posts has had me drooling over your wardrobe. Just beautiful! I'll be hanging around here a lot. :)

  6. I love it!! Your words & your outfit, the skirt is perfect without a petticoat, I love the way it flows as you move. And the hat is so sweet :) I agree with you 100%!! Women can be whatever they choose to be and it should only be up to herself. Makes no sense to me that we are still fighting to have rights for things and I have heard some women complain about feminists and having rights, these things really don't help. One thing that always bothers me is how women can sometimes tear each other down, it's not always men, it's ourselves. We need to see more together-ness and just enjoy being who we are, because we can be anything we wish, it is up to ourselves to go out and work for it & do it!! You look as marvellous as always!! Have a wonderful weekend doll!! Oh, I replied to you on instagram, I found a couple websites that help you make the logo button you want to make, do you have an email?? I can send you the links to the pages, the directions looked quite simple and I do not know how to do any of those things & it looked ok to me, hahaha!!

    Have a great weekend

  7. I think women should be and do whatever they want, some women are happy to be a housewife, as long as they've been grown up in an environment where they know they can progress in a career if they wish, that's fine. Its a bit tricky when some woman are brought up a certain way and are moulded to want a certain life though!

    I love the skirt, it's brilliant!
