Riding The Heat Wave
Good morning all! I'm delighted to announce that I'm back from my unofficial blogging hiatus. I think I kind of got a spot of "blogger burnout" a while back, and fell out of the habit of blogging. And once such a habit is broken, it takes quite a bit of impetus to get started again. So to get the old blogging momentum going again I've lined up some outfit posts for you over the next few days. Not exactly seasonal fashions though, given the extraordinarily unseasonal weather we've had this week. When I heard on the radio on Saturday morning (at 8 a.m. on the way to the car boot sale) that a "mini heatwave" was forecast I scoffed derisively. But lo and behold it turned out a very warm day. Sunday followed suit. And to our ever-increasing amazement, so did Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Making this, I am quite sure, the hottest week we've had since April.
As such, on Tuesday I got thoroughly overexcited and actually donned shorts for the first time this summer. To ease my self-consciousness at showing so much skin, and avoid looking too much like I was headed for the beach, I covered up on top with a long-sleeved rayon blouse - the polka dots happen to co-ordinate perfectly with the turquoise of the shorts. I vintage'd it up a bit more with the hair, accessorized simply and was good to go.
