That's me. Looking a little melancholy right? The trouble is we've had rain non-stop in England for weeks now. My garden is like an urban jungle, bright green leaves and pops of vibrant summery colour, but the sky is unfortunately grey, like old socks that have been washed too many times.
The thing is I have so many lovely summer clothes I want to wear - not holiday gear as I blogged the other day, but pretty summer dresses and ballet pumps, light cotton blouses and capri pants, but I seem to have been living in jeans since autumn.
This is one of my favourite recent finds, an embroidered jacket made from indian cotton and citrus coloured thread. It was a few pounds from a vintage shop in Suffolk, hidden away on an upstairs rail with acrylic maxi dresses and 70s polyester flares. Not bad for a quick buy. Just goes to show that sometimes your clothes can add a little sunshine to your day!
