do you remember how sweet it used to be

It is so weird trying to write scheduled posts. I go away to France tonight but by the time you read this I will be long gone, and buried deep in the green countryside of north-west France (that is, unless we get lost and end up in Germany...that did actually happen to my parents once). Right now I've just finished a really awesome day working with the lovely ladies at Motel and helping out with their vintage pop up shop (which I hope you went to...it was so lovely!) I am half packed and have four episodes of Orange is the New Black left that I am determined to watch until the channel tunnel blocks out my internet access. I'm not a big series-watcher but you have to admit, OITNB is addictive. I'm also trying something new in France this year as I want to try and go without my phone (and therefore social media) for the whole two weeks. I'm thinking of it as a sort of 'internet detox'. I love keeping this blog but after a while the constant pressure to update so many different websites can get quite tiring, so I am looking forward to a little break from it all for a while.

 This outfit was from a lovely pre-holiday day out to get our nails done in the morning, have lunch and see Matilda on stage. I loved Roald Dahl as a child and so it was really nostalgic to see one of my favourite books of his adapted for the stage. It was a really good production, and has made me want to go to the theatre more often. I wore my new skirt from Pop Boutique, with a white shirt from blitz, a white vest that belonged to my Mum, a bag from Rokit and shoes and socks from Topshop. It was one of those outfits you just feel comfortable in...I loved floating around in the skirt and felt very vintage in the sense that I'm sure my Nan would have worn a similar outfit when she was a teenager too. I also loved layering the white-on-white...I'd never really considered it before but I loved the effect.

I may or may not have matched my glasses to the skirt. I love matching a pair of glasses to my outfit, and it really helps encourage me to actually wear them and not wander about in the sort of blurry haze that is my regular eyesight. I am determined to carrying on growing my collection of vintage frames...you never know, one day I might have one pair for every day of the week.

NOTE: This post was scheduled before I left, and now I am on holiday and so will answer all emails, reply to all comments, and update properly when I am back in England! I hope you are all having a great summer!
