I choo-choose you ~ Train magic with Mary Blair from Pinup Girl Clothing and Deer Arrow

I’m a sucker for matching outfits. If I can match my accessories with my outfit, in incredibly accurate detail…I’m a happy girl. So recently, when Zulily had this Pinup Girl Clothing Mary Blair skirt in train print on sale, I knew I had to make it mine! At the same time, I went and snapped up the matching brooch from Deer Arrow and boy oh boy am I glad I did. This outfit is a matching pinups dream and I am so glad I snapped this set up to wear together! I just had to share it on the blog, especially since this gorgeous skirt is still available from Pinup Girl Clothing! And what better place to show it off than a gorgeous garden which also features some very old train equipment!

Flowers ~ Blue Rose Double from Daisy Jean Floral Designs
Earrings ~ Retro Hoops from Luxulite
Beads ~ Blue necklace from Debstar Designs
Brooch ~ Pink Train Brooch from Deer Arrow
Top ~ White Peasant top from Doll me Up Inc (review coming soon!)
Belt ~ Navy Belt by Hell Bunny from Gwynnies
Skirt ~ Jenny Skirt in Pink Mary Blair Train print from Pinup Girl Clothing
Shoes ~ White Sandals from I love billy shoes
I’m still a sucker for Jenny skirts and despite parting ways with a good chunk of them earlier this year (I can no longer wear petticoats due to my job and some of them weren’t exactly work appropriate), I still hung on to my favorites and it doesn’t mean I won’t snap up a jenny I’ve had my eye on when the opportunity arises! Thanks to some friends on my facebook, I was able to snap this gorgeous Jenny skirt up in the Zulily Sale. I must admit, I was incredibly excited and it arrived much sooner than I anticipated it would! I ordered this jenny skirt in a large, as its been my experience that you should size up in their printed jenny’s as they run small. So I got the large instead of my usual medium. I was spot on the money and was over the moon that this new skirt fit! I was also excited at the addition of pockets in their Jenny Skirts! The colours are as vibrant as they look in pictures and I am so excited to try styling this skirt different ways! While its no longer available on Zulily, you can still snap this skirt up on the Pinup Girl Clothing website!

This skirt was the perfect match for my new peasant blouse from Doll Me Up Inc. As a pear girl I find these stretchy tops a better fit for me than the super structured PUG ones, which I don’t seem to fill. Plus the lighter fabric makes them a godsend in our hot Australian summer, meaning I’ll get plenty of wear out of them as the warmer weather starts to hit! I’ll be reviewing this top style very soon here on my blog! I do love though that this skirt could be just as easily teamed with yellow, blue or a darker pink with the colours in the fabric! Making it a fun versatile piece!

Deer Arrow have been coming out with some incredibly gorgeous acrylic designs in the past 12 months and when I bought this adorable train skirt I knew what I needed to match it! This train brooch comes in a red colourway as well and each little carriage has its own securing pin! Plus, it even has little white steam. I cannot wait to see how well it pops against a coloured top! This adorable train brooch is only $35AUD + postage too. They also have a gorgeous range of Christmas stuff in stock atm the moment!

For my accessories, I decided to play to the blue tones in this skirt. Retro hoops, a blue necklace and blue hair flower were my go to! I kept my shoes simple and comfortable for our hot style weather and another pop of navy at my waist. Overall I adore this whole outfit and the vibes it hard! I also loved the setting for this shoot! Shot in the gorgeous Wendy’s garden in Sydney which was build on what was originally a dumping ground on rail yard land, it features some of the old train mechanisms which were so lovely to show with for this review!

I hope you’ve all enjoyed this review! I also got to shoot with a new photographer for this review! So all photo credits to Phil Ingram. You can check out his work here!

Til next time darlings!
