Two weeks ago there were no leaves on the trees. Today, it's 27C before the humidex. It feels like 34C! I snapped this photo on my walk to work:
I am not complaining.
Tonight I'm going out with friends and we will sit outdoors all. fucking. evening. Because, when the sun shines and the heat's on, you don't mess around. Carpe solis and all.
I'm wearing my new Kielo wrap dress today and it's fab. The ties stay put entirely (I was concerned they wouldn't); the drape is great. I'm so enamoured of it that I intend to make another this weekend. Having said this, I sense I need to lower the armholes just a bit more and to alter the neckline. I'm feeling slightly choked by the very high crew neck. Instead, I'll copy the neckline of my t shirt sloper because it's perfect for me. I'll use some stashed, grey bamboo jersey and, in this version, I'll omit the ties. I really do love the geometric shape of the tie-free version and I left my other one with my mum. Nothing like filling a wardrobe need!
Here's hoping I have some happy tales to share soon.
