Deep blue sea darlin' deep blue sea..
I took these last Friday. First blue skies in what felt like forever. For the record, there is a reason I get to wear tights and jackets at the height of summer: The height of summer means a "sweltering" 22C/72F around here most years. I always used to prefer feeling cold to getting a sweat on but my preferences are shifting. Funny how tastes change over time. I am starved for a heat wave. I remember growing up I'd hide from the sun watching formula one with my Dad in the temperate sanctuary that was our living room. Now I run outside for outfit shots every time the rain stops. Welcome to my meteorological pity party.
Never mind, it was blooming gorgeous out today (today being last Friday) - 18C/65F and just look at that brooding sky :) No kidding, I don't like rain but I do love being out and about when there is a storm brewing. Just ask my Mom, I used to drive her nuts running outside every time it looked like thunder or hail. That bitter smell just before the first drop splashes on your nose, the static in the air as you spot the first flash of lightning in the distance.. I guess it is like the Counting Crows lyrics: "I wanna sink slowly without getting wet"
Enough already about the weather! Jeez Louise, aren't I quite the accomplished conversationalist?!
Halfway through this shoot I noticed myself singing the Grizzly Bear's Deep Blue Sea under my breath. Funny how my vocal cords claim independence at times :) Somehow it seemed so fitting by the lake and under such vibrant blue skies. The tune makes me feel all cosy (despite all the drowning and grave digging it is such a sweet lullaby) :)
So in line with today's exciting *yawn* weather theme, if you had to be a little bit hot or a little bit cold all of the time, which kind of mildly uncomfortable would you prefer?
jacket: zara (time enough for drums)
belt: Mom's (1980s)
skirt: vintage (etsy)
PS: All went well with my wisdom teeth eviction and I am recuperating with lots of milkshake and TV as my doting husband keeps a close eye :) Toothache doesn't get any better than this ;)
