Summer's end....not!

 Tomorrow may be the first day of September but it certainly does not feel like it. 
The scorching heat came back while I was browsing websites for boots and trench coats, so I guess I have to play along for a week or two more, but it's fine; I went to the pool for a swim and took long walks during the evenings and savoured some brilliant ice cream - the perks of Summer. 
I leave you to this simple set of photos we made yesterday in the last light, now I'm off to do some errands (except that I don't want to because it's 2 P.M. and it feels like stepping into a hot oven - pray I won't suffocate.)

I am the cherry on top!

 Well, well, look who appeared on the blog! A chic lady that travelled in the future from the 1940s. Joke aside, I have to say that I was so excited for this dress, I had fun creating this style, so it was something I really enjoyed.
I am fascinated by all retro, vintage inspired looks and I showed you in the past such outfit posts and each time I do it, it makes me feel confident and special (I really must've been some cool vintage lady in another past life)
 I got this dress from Dressin, they contacted me for a collaboration not long ago, and while I was browsing through their dresses, I found this particular one that really stood out and I thought that it really has to be mine. When it arrived, my world filled with rainbows and fairy dust for a few moments - I have to say now that whenever I look at it, I feel this urge to eat cherry jam.

About the outfit, I really wanted to create a retro look, hairstyle included with victory rolls and all that - it wasn't easy to make those rolls, I tell you that. I initially wanted to take the dress out for a picnic and be surrounded with real cherries, maybe even a cherry cake! Alas, it's the end of August and the cherries are gone so I'll have to wait until next year.

I hope you enjoyed this little incursion to the past, let me know your thoughts!

Out and about

 This past weekend was a lazy one. I was strolling the city with my mom, eating cakes and drinking fancy coffee - this is a typical Saturday afternoon for us, whenever I am in town. Then I ask her to take my photos and she complies with excitement even. 
Good relaxing times are needed too. 
I have a new, lovely dress to brag about, so stay tuned for the next post!

 Have a great week!
