Showing my unmentionables in public

I may have mentioned in this post that I had a long held but secret desire for bloomers... I'd been reading about and looking at other bloggers showing their knickers...

 This delight belongs to Melanie


 
and these frilly wonders belong to the ultra limber Desiree


I recieved these beauties in the post from ebay


Gorgeous!

These are perfect for stopping the terrible thigh rub I'm cursed with

I bought two pairs of bloomers, the second pair are white, crisp, huge and very Victorian, but sadly two long for the thigh protecting job

They were perfecto for keeping cool yesterday afternoon after a long overdue hot spell.


 Sausages cooking in the afternoon sun






Chasing squirrels  - sorry Vanessa!!



So I am now a big fan of bloomers, perfect for a hot sweaty afternoon!


I'm going to go extra blonde soon so I'll be back with photos!!


oooh and on the same day I recieved the bloomers I found this photo of me in a sort of clown suit thing on my 6th birthday - I need this now!

Ooh, bloomers, now that's something I haven't pondered before, I do love a french knicker though for that same thigh rub reason. Aw, hot dogs lol. X

Oh darling Miss S, bloomers, bloomers, bloomers!!!! I love them so much and I'm sooooooooooo happy, no ... over the moon that you've worn them out - weeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!! You look fantastic and yes they are perfection for hot, sweaty days:))). The number of times I ditched my skirt and chose bloomers as shorts last summer, was countless!! And what a glorious feeling! I absolutely pissed myself at the doggies lying in the sun - "yeah great, now let me get back to my tan K?" Lovetoloveyoubaby xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Woohoo, those bloomers are fabulous on you and very reminiscent of the bottoms of your "clown suit". Lovely pics as always. xx

I hate middle lenght trousers in general, but bloomers are so amazing!!!
I love that yours are pink and if you are able to find a pink playsuit like the one you were wearing on your birthday, please call me, I need it now!!!
Your dogs are super cute!!

Oh yeah baby! You look extra cute in your white bloomers.
I cant wait to see you in the pink ones now.
Doggie sausages in the sun my fave. :)
Use Spanx shorts for the thigh rubbing these bloomers will be too thin.

La Dama said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Oh and that pink playsuit is just too adorable, I thought you were the girl in the back screaming.

Vix said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

They are so cute on you! I can just see you rocking a Broderie Anglaise cami and a straw boater and looking like a cheeky Edwardian Bathing Belle. Great find. Between you and Desiree you have me wanting a pair, too!
Love the bluebell woods and the sausages cooking in the sun. Our kitties think they're elephants today and keep rolling in the dust to keep cool.
That suit (and you) on your 6th birthday is the sweetest thing ever! xxx

I HATE THE THIGH RUB! Your bloomers are PINK, and that alone makes them awesome. Looking forward to your BLONDISSIMA pics.

Krista said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I love your bloomers they look great! I have to say I laughed out loud at the sausages in the sun comment. I love your lil doggies! Peetee would have a time with them for sure!
Xxoo

I must confess, I'd never thought of bloomers being so retro and so cool! (Literally!) How marvellous!!
Looking forward to seeing the extra-blonde; am sorely tempted! x

Bella Gingell said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Blooming lovely.

LUCEWOMAN said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I've had a day of thigh-chafe hell. Short of walking like I've shat myself, not sure what the answer is, maybe it is bloomers.
I cannot wait to see your hair - 'urry up!

Misfits Vintage said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

What is this plague of thigh chaffing??? Bloomers are MARVELLOUS! You look absolutely GORGEOUS in yours - can't wait to see you uber blonde and modelling those pink ones for us! Is little scruffy sausage a Norwich? (I'm a total terrierist!) Sarah xxx

Marisa Noelle said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

This post is full of all kinds of adorable! I haven't worn bloomers since I was 7 I think. I definitely wouldn't mind getting a pair though. They are darling on you. I love that last photo...and your little sausages are the cutest baking there in the sun:)

I love bloomers too, though I wouldn't wear them on the outside! I have pair I call my winter bloomers, as they are perfect for cold spells.... certainly don't need them today, thats for sure- cami knickers all the way for hot days!

Bella Q said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I love bloomers! I used to wear them as outter wear, but I'm not as svelte or limber as Desiree so now I just feel a bit gone to seed in them. But my love is still unabated. Love your summery ones with the yellow top. Can't wait to see you a tow-head!

Vintage Coconut said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Your bloomers are quite cute! And I love the pics of your hot doggies.

Sara said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Yay for bloomers and cutie patootie doggies!!! Let's roll around in that beautiful field/wood. It's so pretty! :D XOXO

Just found your blog when looked at Ivy Black Chat. We are so lucky as to have 18 charity shops in Shrewsbury, and the town itself isn't that big. Pop over to my blog and say "hi" if you like.

Cheers,

LOVE your pink bloomers, love the white longer ones, love your furry sausages cooking in the sun, love the bluebells. That's a whole lotta love! Can't wait for the uber-blonde pics! xxxxx

Oh god, the summer time thigh rub! Don't get me started!! It did make me feel better though a few weeks ago (when it was actually hot) when my size 8 friend said to me on the way home, "Do you get that thing when it's hot when your thighs rub together at the top? I'm burning! I'm going to walk like a cowboy!" And she did! All the way to the train station. Had me in giggles for ages. I think bloomers could be the way to go... Emma xx
