So, I’m back from Marseille – it was amazing. The weather was perfect, we did exactly what we wanted all week (largely picnics; we love picnics) and we got lots of nice pictures of outfits. However, before I sit down to edit these and other holiday snaps, it occurs to me that I still haven’t posted these photos… Remember how I went on holiday to Valencia last year? No, me neither, it was that long ago. I did though, way back last year and I even got one outfit post up somewhat soon after. And then there’s this one…
Ironically, I’ve been itching to put up this one for months because it’s one of my favourite outfits I’ve ever posted here – possibly that I’ve ever worn. It just made me feel like a goddess – probably due to the combination of the big floppy hat, the heels, the off shoulder top and wiggle skirt… I wasn’t the only one who loved it, B was a huge fan – he even took unprovoked selfies of us this day, rather than me insisting on them every five minutes to keep my Instagram updated (heh).
The reason I’ve been sitting on them is because I have a thing against posting weather-inappropriate outfits. Which is really, especially ridiculous as I live in the UK and two days in a row can feel like they belong to different seasons (like yesterday: sunny and warm; today: cold and raining). Somehow, regardless of this undeniable fact, I still can’t bring myself to post a summery outfit in autumn, despite the fact I happily read blogs from ladies around the world and have no problem seeing winter clothes in summer myself (go figure). Anyway, it’s late June now and I feel if I keep waiting for the UK’s sun that never comes, it’ll be a whole other year before any of my summery outfits appear here (supposedly we’re getting a heatwave in a few days, mind you) – so, as I’m fresh from the memory of what warm weather feels like…
I really hope you all love it as much as I do – the suspense has been killing me!
