The Spirit of Summer


A floral maxi dress emanates the spirit of summer. The feeling of freedom, fun, carefreeness and all the goodness the sun brings – when if finally decides to stay. So, what have I got planned for summer sixteen?

 Spirit of Summer

…Well, not a holiday anywhere yet, but knowing me, I’m very last minute.

Since we are half way gone in the year, and I haven’t got any holidays away planned, I decided to take some time off from work, just for me. Some time to sit in my garden and read a book or magazine. Do some much-needed house decorations. Since we moved into our place, the house decor work has slowed down a lot. Perhaps I’ll also make some time to do more of the things I enjoy doing like sewing. Maybe make something summery for myself. Also on the agenda is to pay a little more attention to the blog, attend events and have some late mornings. A week may not be enough to do everything, but I plan on making the most of it, going with the flow and having a good time doing whatever.

Happy Summer Sixteen guys! Looking forward to what the next half of the year brings.

This dress is an oldie, one of those pieces that only come out in the summer. I like the boho yet glamorous vibe. It would totally complement the white walls of Santorini, or perhaps, a casual weekend brunch in Mayfair…or paired with heels, for a glitzy evening. The dress speaks for itself and there is really no need for dramatic or statement accessories. To make it a bit “more me”, I decided to have both earring and choker to finish the look. The choker is a hand me down from my other half’s nan and is potentially older than me – talk about vintage huh?
