Peter Pan Collar, Cameo & sixties nostalgia
Hello! Well wow, hasn't this been yet another long break from Charlestown?! I've had no time to blog whatsoever (bad excuse), I started my latest placement last Monday and I am officially an 'intern' (I sound so grown-up!) which, although very different from my last, i'm enjoying and the fashion cupboard is never boring when i'm with the other lovely interns! I also was really silly the other week and left my camera at Alessio's house, I feel so lost without it, and on top of that he lives an hour away so retrieving it has been pretty out-of-the-window lately. But anyway, enough excuses, I suppose that I could really have not spent that extra hour on the settee watching the Olympics on repeat and actually blogged, but it only comes around once every four years (i'll just keep telling myself that to make me feel less guilty!)
I wore this outfit yesterday, on our family outing to Broadstairs. If you've never been, it's a pretty seaside town with fantastic house-y shops and (my favourite) an ice-cream parlour in all of it's sixties splendour. I thought that I should probably don my best 'sixties siren' outfit, with a beehive, and feel the part with my knickerbocker glory, but the town was so packed that we had to go somewhere else. The sixties is my favourite era, with the music (the Beatles are my all-time favourites) and of course the clothes, but i'm sure lots of people must agree! But oh well, I would still say that this is one of my favourite outfits, even if I have to be extremely careful of what I eat in this mega tight pencil skirt! 
My internship ends this weekend, and pretty soon i'll be jetting of to New York. The reality of the trip still hasn't sunk in yet, but i'm sure it will do soon enough! 
Thank you for all of your lovely comments on my latest post, I really need to expand my style in terms of photographs on here, and my last post was along the lines of how I wish my blog to be! Sorry about these not so good photographs, the thunder and lightening reduced me to using my bedroom!
Love, Charlestown xoxo.
