Will you return?

last outfit of summer

Last night I took a look at my wardrobe, sighed deeply and started the rather elongated process of swapping round my summer for winter clothes. Oh, how I loathe the job.
When I have to find space for all the things I take out (which I just know will end up all screwed up and crumpled no matter how carefully I fold things up and delicately place in bags) and realise what I have to fit back in.... Now my maths isn't top notch but I can tell when things just do't add up. Two bin liners have been filled with the tight, the old and the ugly. Parting with anything is always a little difficult; I swear that once things have been whisked off to charity at some point I'll forget it's gone and be searching high and low to find it.
Over the summer it turns out I bought quite a few new things for the winter (and promptly forgot all about them) so I'm looking forward to putting together some new looks as well as indulging in plenty of trusted favourites.

This outfit was one from a couple of weeks ago when the sun shone and the wind blew warm. A lightweight lacy skirt, by the way, is a poor choice if there is anything upward from the merest breath of a breeze. I'm thrilled that the blue and white top co-ordinates so well with the chambray skirt with the theme through the outfit. Simple, but pleasing. A last summery outfit as summer wound up and autumn started to unveil itself.

 A lacy hem, pure whimsy. I simply cannot resist. A rose in my hair for the last time this year...

Will you return, my sweet summer sun? Will you turn up one day and hold me in your arms to dance through the countryside once more? I'll keep our treasured memories safe in a box, sealed with a kiss, to be unpacked again one fine day.
