August is finally here in all of its glory, full of Summer and holidays and opportunity. August makes life better. August is just peachy.
A walk in the park, a plodge in the sea, reading a book in the sunshine, dozing on a sunny afternoon. Ice Creams and sand in your toes. Sublime!
August is the one month in the fashion calendar that justifies time off. Alas this year we may not be chartering a yacht in the south of France or the Amalfi coast instead we have family staying with us and I intend to make the most out of our very summery month by entertaining in style, in honour of our very English Summer. BBQ’s in the garden, cricket on the green, cucumber sandwiches, Pimms, picnics in the park, and fish and chips on the beach!
On Friday, I enjoyed a very British pastime, Afternoon Tea with fellow bloggers, Prince Cassius, and Nathalie and Danielle from Lady Loves. We choose the courtyard at Hotel Du Vin and were treated to plates of sandwiches, scones and strawberries & Cream. Delicious!
I’m feeling a little English Summer nostalgia on the fashion front as well. I’ll be wearing white cotton dresses, cream coloured slacks, off the shoulder tops or shirts rolled up at the sleeve, perhaps a Panama hat and certainly a silk scarf.
Dear August, so glad you’re here, looking forward to a sublime, sunny time. What do you have planned for the holidays?
