Summer Solstice

Summer is here. The long days. The sunshine, the warmth. Leaving the house without a jacket, applying suncream at the bus stop. The freckles. The lighter hair. The uncontrollable ringlets. As I write this, the UK is experiencing a heat wave, with temperatures reaching up to 33°C. With this weather I can't help but be reminded of home, where these highs are the norm in the summer months. I would usually be walking around the garden barefoot, watering the plants. Wearing the same Levi's cut-offs every day. Make-up long neglected. Watching the sunset on the horizon, the landscape bathed in golden light for as far as the eye can see. 

I traded in this rural summer life for North London, going from one extreme to the other. I've found myself struggling to find outfits lately - with my entire summer wardrobe left at home (slow clap) I currently have but one dress in my wardrobe, which is this lovely piece from & Other Stories. The tea-dress fit is so light and airy, perfect for strolling around London streets.

I've been browsing high street stores online for weeks, Pinning so many lovely summer pieces on to my Wishlist board. I will have to invest in some new clothes soon, but until then, this dress will have to do.
