Grey nail varnish and Sophie Dahl are my favourite.
Denim Jacket & Sunglasses- Topshop, Lace Dress - New Look, Clogs - Asos, Satchel - Vintage
I'm all about wearing my satchel like a backpack.
Summer is lazing around in the sun, rereading favourite books, listening to Francoise Hardy, drinking elderflower cocktails and eating bowl upon bowl of Scottish strawberries. Unfortunately I seem to have been spending more time sitting inside pursuing these summer treats, while the rain pounds against the windowpane but I'm not complaining I love rain so long as I don't have to go out in it. It provides time to listen to Classic FM, try out new recipes and sew.
This outfit pretty much sums up my summer wardrobe - dusky summer frock, denim jacket, grey tights, clogs, wayfarers and my satchel. With such changeable weather, I've become totally lazy and I just seem to switch the dress for an equally dusky one, clogs for sandals if we're graced with sun and bare legs. I can't even remember the last time I straightened my hair, I just blow dry my fringe and let it do its own thing.... lazy, lazy, lazy.
These summer staples are all pretty unexpected, I didn't get the whole clogs thing, I've never liked denim jackets, I don't like pastels; although it seems that actually I do, they just need to have a dusky tone. I've talked about my found love of the humble clog before but the denim jacket was a real step out of my comfort zone. This is ridiculous, I know... after all, its only a demin jacket. Its more casual than what I would usually go for and Miss Waldorf would never wear one but its the keystone to my summer wardrobe and I couldn't do without it. I told you before than I'm fickle...
Does anyone know where I can find a pair of tights in this particular shade of grey? I'm desperate to buy more and these are last season Topshop, long sold out.
EDIT - I'm trying out Lookbook again, I'm never quite sure if I like it or not...
