Modern ITV Victoria inspired look

Jenna Coleman style old fashioned vintage girl inspired look
Only a little while ago I wrote about my favourite modern Victoria style picks here, modern pieces that emulate the look of Jenna's gowns, a ruffle here, an off shoulder neckline there. I've been on the lookout for
similar pieces ever since but I couldn't take my mind off dress five, this ASOS Reclaimed Vintage number.

I ended up buying it as it was £10 in the sale, such a great bargain. It fits like a smock dress, large and baggy on the waist, so I paired it with a corset belt to try to recreate the fit and flare waist Jenna exhibits in the series, the shape that was so desirable and sought after in the mid Victorian era. Here is a modern take on her outfits, some of the regal trends of that time played down to create an easily worn, every day springtime look.

I adore the back and ruffle off shoulder style poofy sleeves. I was tempted to name this post Wrestling Belt edit as this is what it reminds me of haha! I love to dress in a nostalgic way, broderie and lace dresses are also perfect for spring and the perfect thing to wear to get you feeling excited about the warmer temperatures.

The swans are out and about, floating up and down the river in my town. I will never tire of photographing swans or blossoms when they arrive, I will never tire of spring time. Every time we have a sunny, blue sky kind of day it feels like the epitome of happiness. It is the most elusive, beautiful and magical season.

A corset belt is a really lovely alternative to a corset, it's so easy to put on and this one from ASOS has completely changed up my outfits. Now I am able to achieve a fit and flare waist, whatever I am wearing! I pretty much always get teased that it's a wrestling belt though... we'll just call this my wrestling belt edit haha

Swans are the most ethereal looking creatures and spotting a white feather on the ground always makes my day, whether that's because it's meant to be a sign the angels are near or because they look just as pretty as blossoms beneath our feet! There's something so pure and untouched and otherworldly about swan feathers.

I love the mori girl vibes with the rabbit ring too. I love this relaxed, modern take on Jenna's outfits as there is no way I could keep as crease free, nor keep a perfect centre parting outside. For me it is important for a look to be low maintenance. It's easy to forget all the work that goes on behind the scenes in the series, so that every strand of hair might tumble perfectly in the shot. It's definitely not an easy to look to recreate in real life.

I have a huge love affair with these flared off shoulder sleeves. I can just imagine the tan lines if it ever got sunny enough for that haha, but this dress is so comfy, soft and breathable, I would definitely wear it on a hot day.

These spring days kind of feel like a dream. I'm really enjoying wearing my pink coat this spring, being able to layer and style it with my outfits and not just be bundled up all of the time. I opted to wear long socks with this outfit as there is still definitely a chill in the air, even if the sunshine is warm PS it's so so cold in the shade

These regency style houses and meeting buildings are so pretty! I absolutely love looking at the houses here and around the Lakes, from quaint slate cottages to painted pubs and buildings with big, glossy, beautiful windows, limestone archways and little painted doors. These have such grand chimney pots too. They look especially beautiful when the nearby blossoms come in and coat the floor in a silky pink carpet.

I hope you liked my outfit! I really love @laviniagomez style on instagram, LoveCatherine's vintage flair and beautiful natural makeup looks and Eloise's romantic outfits on her blog The Whimsical Wilding. I'd love to attempt a Victoria wedding outfit complete with flower crown but that may take some time haha, if only this dress had a maxi style cousin I could wear! Or there are plenty of cheap wedding dresses here to choose from.

Let me know your latest post so I can have a read! I love finding inspiration in my favourite blogs and discovering new ones along the way. Do catch Victoria too if you can, if you are a lover of Jenna Coleman like me!

  9. This is such a lovely outfit! The dress was such a bargain, and looks perfect for spring. I love corsets too - but that corset belt must be much more comfortable to wear than an actual corset! The over-the-knee socks add such a pretty touch, I love it :)
