Sunshine sunshine sunshiiiiiiine!! I finally got away for three WHOLE WEEKS of gorgeous sunshine on a jaunt to Morocco and, please please excuse the far less than stellar hair/makeup day on the picture below (if anyone knows how to move the pictures around in posts please give me a shout out because I haven't a clue!) but how GORGEOUS is this Kaftan??
It actually went straight back in the bag after this picture because its silk and silk - on a beach - um nooo!
And now I am home and it has basically rained solidly for four days. Sob.
So that's it. Fine. I will gear up for winter and winter is ALSO all about the silk. Silk scarves, silk kimonos, silk stockings... okay maybe not the stockings but definitely the scarves and kimonos.
I love scarves. LOVE. I bought by boyfriend this scarf as a random gift - who doesn't want a scarf? And then I decided it was far too soft and gorgeous to give away and bought him football tickets instead. (I am not a horrible girlfriend really!) I am also completely in love with this gorgeous water colour scarf and have my fingers crossed that it is still available/on sale on pay day because my holiday cleaned out my "pretty things" fund!
And apparently autumn is alllll about the Kimono. Awesome. Though not entirely practical for the rainy English autumn, a gorgeous floaty silk kimono is amazing for "work to bar" nights out. I would have collage'd these into a pretty picture but I have nothing to do that with on this computer so pretty collages will have to wait. In the meantime I am loving this, this and this (though will end up with the latter because HELLO - SALE!
And on that note - lunch break is over so its back to the grindstone. Earn the pennies to pay for the gorgeous silky floaty things.
