You know when you feel like you just have absolutely nothing to wear...and your throwing clothing around your room hoping for that lightbulb moment you find the perfect top you forgot you had...which totally never happens..and then holy cotton candy it does!!!! This 1940's handmade top was lying at the bottom of a drawer and i had no idea...shame on me really! (could possibly mean its time for a closet clean out)

Along with the amazing mustard colour the black leaf bead detail makes me swoon! Its possibly my new...forgotten about favourite!

I hope you have an incredible weekend planned! Im going along to Rumble in the Underground on Saturday and im a little too excited...going to dance till my feet cant take it anymore!!!

Summer & Gertie...

 photo photo_zps4fdea5ac.jpg There is something about Summer evenings, the smell of Jasmine flowers in the air and warm speckles of sun slowly turning to a slight chill..everyone comes outside and kids running through sprinklers on their front lawn before dinner is considered a total necessity to cool down just a little.

I have quite a few wonderful memories of my grandmother picking my sister and i up late at night when we were kids to go to the beach for a dip, the air was so hot that we would stick our heads out of the window and close our eyes singing loudly to whatever was on the radio!

I hope this summer is filled with weekend "just because" trips, long bike rides on Gertie around the neighbourhood, sun filled wine dates with the girls and eating frozen grapes in front of the air conditioner!

What are you looking forward to?
