Hello everyone – it has been patchy but I am all geared up to be back with a bang. This forty-something fashion enthusiast has finally resolved her time management problems – quite simply by just deciding that some things will have to wait. This blog has been a labour of love for two years and it has been good for my soul – I am hopeful that this break will not be repeated soon.
One thing, however, is for certain – we will not be hearing this autumn that London did not see a proper summer! It’s been a summer on steroids in the English capital and I have never seen so much positivity and animosity expressed towards the same weather pattern by disparate individuals. It has been hot, hot and hot in a way that I cannot remember since I moved to London almost two decades ago. The full-blown summer had been a great incentive for everyone to get out all their summer clothes and I have never enjoyed so much summer fashion on display in the capital as I have this year.
Summer dresses are my favourite summer fashion statement! Nothing says summer quite like brightly coloured dresses with gorgeous prints. I often find myself at Victoria Station and as may be evident by now – I can shop anywhere. I bought both these gorgeous dresses from the JOY shop at the station. Yellow is my favourite colour and I knew I would not be catching my intended train when I saw this gorgeous floral number in the window. A week later, I went into the shop again only to exit with this lovely fruit printed pink dress – the colour and the flared skirt are right up my alley. These summery dresses work so well with wedge heels and flats and I find that wearing these cheerful prints puts a smile on my face and spring in my step.
My message of the day – soon summer will be on its way out and a chill in the air will herald the arrival of fall. Therefore, even when you are roasting in the heat for the next two days – enjoy it because soon the heat will be gone and you will remember it so fondly on a cold and rainy autumn day in London!
I would love some feedback on the blog and what you would like me to feature in the near future. As always, thank you for reading my blog and have a great week ahead.
