One year on

Wednesday, August 27, 2014


I regard this dress as a summer classic; one I'll wear year in year out regardless of what's currently on trend. It's one of those practical ones with a good weight of fabric, sensible length and flattering cut. In fact it was the first one I posted just about a year ago when I relaunched as Sophie in the Sticks, hasn't time flown by? Of course it does feel like SITS has been precisely what this blog was all along and I've had a brilliant twelve months of blogging with so much wonderful support and brilliant opportunities. It's a good time to say a huge thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to drop by and read; you have no idea just how much it means to me and I appreciate it so much. There have been over one thousand posts now and over ten thousand comments over the years, with so many tweets and retweets; the numbers are quite staggering to little old me really. Despite numerous wobbles and crashes in confidence (they seem temporary, touch wood) I have no plans to slow down and look forward to bringing you more posts sharing all my loves and discoveries. I'd love to have another little re-design, somebody stop me! Stick around wont you, things are looking bright.

    Photographs and outfits have been super and lots of cool stuff going on. Just confess to missing the slightly more sociable Sophie.

    I'll miss your beautiful summer outdoor posts that have been a breath of fresh air to a Suburban girl.
