I don’t think any word or photo is ever going to express how happy it makes me that Summer is well and truly on the way. So what if the breeze gives me goosebumps from time to time? I’m going to carry on dressing like it’s December and the weather will eventually catch up with me.
Given the brilliant quantity of sun today, I could hardly resist the brightly draped comfort of this búl dress. Because of the lighting, I’m not sure that these photos quite express the full impact of the dress’ burnt orange, but be sure to keep an eye on their website for the full collection to pop up – I had the pleasure of rifling through a rack of them on Friday afternoon when visiting the ladies of Trish Nicol Ageny and I have to say, the pieces are very much the epitome of dreamy Summer dressing.
I really do use this bag a lot more than would be evident on the blog – it’s the perfect size for pretty much everything, and the leather and stitching are far too perfect to stay inside. It’s definitely one for the warmer weather though, so expect to see much more of it!
How have all our weekends been? Mine, unfortunately, hasn’t been terribly productive – I have managed to catch up on some sleep, though, and gone on several wonderfully long runs in preparation for Blackmore’s Sydney Running Festival (more on that later).
I also discovered that I’m moderately gluten intolerant (which would explain why I feel a bit ill after my daily sandwich) and so spent the most part of last night planning ridiculous salads for the rest of the week.
