Where did summer go??

Did I blink and miss it – last week I packed away my winter coat and looked forward to the prospect of wearing summer frocks,  taking of the opaque tights and wearing strappy sandles!! But now I am thinking I need to get it out again and put the heating on!!

I am sure that if memory serves me well as I child I remember long hot summer days from May until September but now if we are lucky we get the odd day here and there – if we are really lucky a week of continuous warm days.

One of the things I love about wearing vintage is the colour and so being able to wear bright bold prints and channel Jackie O in Pucci on the island of Capri, wear floaty 70’s maxi dresses a la  in  Talitha Getty in Morocco or fabulous floral frocks while drinking a G&T in the garden.

So whilst sitting here writing this looking at gloomy skies it makes me think of holidays in warmer climates and where I would like to be and of the fabulous style icons that made the resorts so fashionable and chic?

Love this image - a classic summer look!

Ultimate chic couple in holiday mode probably the South of France.

A girl can dream – I am not sure that I will get away to the sun this year but I am hoping for a city break at some point – so outfits will need to be planned for that one and all being well as it is our 20th wedding anniversary next year I am planning a trip to Capri so can wear the Pucci and chanel Jackie O Italian style??
