Pre, pre-fall.

This summer has been rather too humid for my liking, normally quite content basking in some summer sunshine, I have found myself sweating my way through each passing week like a melting ice lolly. Nice.

A tiny reprieve in the humidity lately saw me run for the autumnal hills and I was so excited to showcase one of my new fall finds complete with brogues and knitted cardigan.

Needless to say the sun shone harder than it has in a week or more and I had to peel off the layers.

 Luckily the little 1960s brown floral dress was just as perfect a choice with or without my favourite cardigan. Lightweight, flattering and cool I felt as chic as i’d hoped and not in the least bit fraught by the sunshine.

Brown silk 1960s floral shift, grey leather cross body bag, coming soon to The Whimsy Thrift.

Awkward in doorways.

Usually I am a solo photo taker, for my little shop or for this little blog space. The usual state of affairs is me precariously balancing my phone in the most ambitious places to get just the right angle.

So it’s very lovely to head out for a morning with a friend who is so happy to have a cup of tea and take ten billion pictures of me goofing around.

Great that grey hair has been on trend the past couple of years..so if you’re craving my look, go to the hairdresser and ask for the tone “ancient oak door” .
