Tangerine dream

Tuesday, August 08, 2017

I did have something cosmetic called 'tangerine dream' although I can't rack my brains quite thoroughly enough to establish whether it was a showergel, nail polish, lipstick or maybe (and slightly cheekily) it could have been fake tan. It is quite apparent that I don't care for any sort of tanning, sunbeds or dying my skin with some biscuit smelling gloop. It's sunshine or nought and I can tally the number of times I've sprawled out on a towel to soak up the rays this year as a grand total of zero. Hence amusing tan lines of whatever I have been wearing on sunny days. My feet are ghostly white which only serves to encourage my habit of wearing ankle boots oft.

I'm sure someone was being a little rude by complementing the flowers in my hair then commenting that they went well with my boots (I'm deeply suspect it was thinly disguised sarcasm). Had it not been for the need to keep on good terms I would have challenged their rudeness. Anyway, boots DO go with everything and I don't care for ankle boot based negativity.

I like the colour of these bright orange shorts but wish they were a little longer. Really, it's so difficult to buy shorts at a mid length. Not everyone wants to be quite so exposed all the time! As they are, they're fine. But so many pairs are too short to consider. More like denim knickers really. I'd rather not.
One of my favourite things about summer is to embrace floaty pieces that cannot be worn in windy winter. This kimono style cover up is so pretty and unlike many of the clothes I often wear. It feels lovely and cool to wear with a breeze making it ripple and sway. The black border gives it a defined shape and the print is so pretty too.

Have a wonderful day.
Take care,
