Shall I compare thee to.. linen




Short of declaring 2014 the year of few and far between blog posts, I might as well dub it the year of wearing linen.

I always do my best to steer clear of man-made fabrics (ugh.. that shrinkwrap feeling). Mind you, good intentions aside, when your heart is set on a pretty dress it can be hard to think practical when you find the fabric is made from plastic. But in the end no manner of gorgeousness can make that sticky unpleasantness up to me. And hell, you guys, I live in England. It doesn't even get remotely hot over here and still it's too hot for poly-shrinkwrap dresses! But then, what's the surprise, I am of the comfy shoe persuasion too: Suffering for fashion sure as shinola is not my style.

As you can see I've avoided the polyester trap just lately. There are still quite a few specimens in my wardrobe, but at least I haven't been adding any new ones this year.

Linen is pretty cool, though far too cool for winter. You might as well go out into a snow storm in the nude. ;)


Have a fantastic day!

..and the livin' is easy


Nothing like a bit of sunshine to cheer me up :)
Long time no see. Hope you all are doing good!

The countdown to Glastonbury Festival has started in earnest. I've got my revised list of things to bring ready and waiting. It takes a lot of resolve to stop myself from packing already!



Meanwhile I am still infatuated with linen dresses. But I have a couple of awesome dirndls to show you too. If the sun doesn't play hooky, I'll be back with those soon :)


Have a most excellent weekend!
