one of my new years resolutions should probably have been to stop complaining about the heat. i live in africa, i have done for 28 years, i need to get over it. WELL. that will never happen. i actually day dream about the cold. i look at pictures of girls wearing crisp camel coloured coats and actually get kind of weepy. i am particularly drawn to the lovely dark mix of blacks, browns and navy… accessorised with beautiful leather bags and jaunty hats. sigh.
thought i’d highlight the best of both worlds – since you notherners are slowly skipping into spring, and us southerners are steadily creeping into autumn. i’m sure we are both eager for a change … i know i am.
just in case you felt the need to look at a bunch of beautiful ice pools, like i did.
… which indirectly made me think of this douglas adams quote
these dresses at jill stuart are quite possibly my favourite pieces from all the a/w 2011 fashion week shows so far
also love her fox & owl prints…
i’m just filing this away right here for when the time is right. our summer is still in full swing – so high waisted flared jeans worn with boots, socks, tucked in shirts, jerseys, coats and all the best things in the world aren’t an option right now. i look at these outifts the same way someone on a diet might look at a food blog.
