Don't Read This Entry

No, I don't mean it. But here's the thing. For those of us in the northern hemisphere, it's one of the last days of summer, and I intend to spend as little time riding my screen as possible.

Even if you're at work, in school, or are occupied full time in caring for others, can you get twenty minutes to get outdoors, and find some examples of nature's beauty to inspire your love of fashion?

There are some great florals out there, the real kind. The edges of a cloud against a sky might give you new ideas for wearing white frills against a color field. The iridescence of a rain puddle, or a pigeon's neck, is a masterclass in tone and texture.

The point is, I'm going to appreciate the world in three dimensions today, as much as I can. I'll be back next Monday with more of the usual.


  1. Ahhhhh, the bitter-sweet last few days of summer. They always bring an element of melancholy with them, don't they? I personally had high hopes for this summer, but alas it didn't pan out as I'd wanted and now I'm feeling a tad blue about that. But oh well, autumn is on the horizon and being my fave season that always makes me happy, so I'm sure I'll forget this summer's shortcomings in no time.

    Wishing you a beautiful end of summer, my dear!

  2. Thank you Jessica! My favorite season by far is back-to-school, which, ridiculously, is how I still feel it. New beginnings, new clothes!

    Summer in london is such a haphazard affair heatwise that it's difficult to get any traction. So roll on autumn. I've got my boots, I'm good to go.

    xx to you and thanks again for such delightful posts on your blog.
