If you're a bird, I'm a bird.

This outfit post is inspired by The Notebook, set in the 40s this moving film encapsulates the beauty of fashion in this period. With her elegant dresses just scraping the knee, outfits worn by Allie (Rachel McAdams) in particular  are stunning examples of silhouettes, shapes and prints from this era. Allie's style is epitomised by classy dresses, cute playsuits and quirky high waist shorts paired with the loveliest bralette tops. I just absolutely love this film and the thought that went into the costume design. Let's not forget Mr Gosling...

I did my hair in victory rolls inspired by Allie in The Notebook. I love fashion from the 40's, so much so that if I had the time and energy I would dress like that everyday. I think once I'm older and more comfortable with my personal style this will happen naturally. Right now I'm just young and experimental trying different trends and looks to find something that suits me. The reason I love the 40's so much is because the ladies usually dressed so classy and  elegantly, with pretty tea dresses, lace and pearls, prim hairstyles, polka dots... I could go on.

 This soft feminine look is more appealing to me than many modern trends, I'm probably just nostalgic and a geek - but there you go! For even more inspiration you can look to Frida Gustavsson shot by Andreas Ohlund for Elle Sweden, they're stunning!
