Summer holidays always seem to fly by so quickly, especially when you’ve been spoilt by beautiful weather. It feels like such a shame to be back at work today when the view from my office is sunny blue skies, making the temptation to head to the beach and soak up some sun during my lunch hour look pretty appealing.
I can’t help but be drawn to florals and punchy coloured skirts in the summertime, so have been wearing them at every opportunity paired simply with a white t-shirt or a sleeveless blouse. I’ve also been relishing a brief return to carrying around a smaller bag, namely my PS11, with only the essentials thrown in (wallet, keys, lip balm, sunglasses, iPhone and iPad), rather than lugging about a large handbag containing the contents of my entire life.
I ended up spending the last day of my “summer break” catching up with a friend, eating delicious salads, and doing a small cull of my wardrobe, as I identified pieces I felt were obsolete or seldom worn. It’s like starting the year on a clean slate, with a wardrobe full of your favourite things, which in my case, is looking like a slowly-growing garden of luscious Lover lace – which, can only be a good thing, right?
