My stateside visit is almost over and even though I've had a great time, I'm so ready to come home. I'm suffering terrible withdrawal symptoms for Earl Grey tea, Topshop and my cat Bean. I miss Edinburgh and moody Scots grumbling about the weather but most of all I miss my kitchen. I hate not being able to cook every day!
I had grand ideas of doing outfit posts from here but in reality the clothes I packed were all wrong. The weather in Nevada was so blissfully hot, too hot for all 'summer' dresses I brought. When I stepped out of the car in San Francisco after after driving all day in shorts and a tshirt, I was hit by a nasty chill which hasn't left me since. It has poured with rain almost every day, making all my late summer clothes redundant. However, this does come with an upside - SHOPPING!
I've frequented more thrift and vintage stores than I care to admit and bought far too many thing... Hello over weight baggage! This is my favourite find, a cute 60's Pierrot style dress. I didn't think the original buttons did it justice so I replaced them with some large white ones
I shall see you back on British soil but in the mean time, if you haven't heard it already, you should listen to Jenny Lewis's newest project - Jenny & Johnny. I just bought the vinyl and it is quite wonderful.
