That bag is so unusual, but much needed in rainy England! I always struggle to find somewhere to put my umbrella when I have a small bag, but I like how it's a feature here. Loving your style and blog.

I got a bag from a thrift store in york that has a little zipper pouch in the bottom that the umbrella goes in. this kind of reminds me of it!

your finds just keep on growing! I received the floral jacket today. I'm so excited and thank you again. The holiday with the boyfriend was the best holiday ever. I loved it. :)

Jessica / Lola Vintage Clothing said...

I'm having purse and hair envy! That umbrella holder is too cool. I've honestly never seen anything like it. Gorgeous outfit.

Aya Smith said...

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog! You look gorgeous here btw, well, you always do! :)

It's actually super easy, and I do it all with a small flat iron. When you are running the flat iron through your hair, wrap the hair around the flat iron while pulling the flat iron downward. This will create natural-looking waves in the hair, much like the effect of curling ribbon with scissors. With my bangs, I gave them just a quick curl, by curving the motion with my flat iron :)

Hope that helps!

Kennedy said...

thank you so much aya! you are amazing!

Amy said...

You have the most amazing things!! This outfit is wonderful and your umbrella purse is adorable (I have never seen something like that, but I love it and I want it)!

Very excited to meet you on Saturday @ the Boston Blogger Meet-up. Hopefully, there will be better weather than this past Saturday. :)

xoxo
