My sincerest apologies for the break in transmission. The excuse? The heat. I feel that I simply cannot waste an ounce of energy in it. And that includes typing. It’s just too much effort.
So instead I am going to distract you with Gingham. Because it’s well…pretty distracting isn’t it? From cutsy shirred strap tops (completely work inappropriate) to full gigham-licious ensembles, this summer has gone Italian tablecloth mad. I recently bought this easy Zara ensemble which is work appropriate and makes me feel like I should be swaning around a Riviera of some kind (French, Italian, Cornish, I’m not picky).
I believe that London was not built to handle this weather and should just shut down. Surely in terms of health and safety it’s just too hot? Someone recently told me that cattle cannot be transported as the temperature is past safety standards. Well surely the tube counts as a cattle truck? Can we be held on a par with animals? I think so. But until government decides we can all stay at home in our plastic pools or crowd around the lido on Thursday instead of contributing to the economy we will have to make do with other distractions. Hence gingham! This trend is fun, frivolous and feel-good, all the f-words that are describing my current mood…okay maybe not all the f-words….
Enjoy the inspiration x
