It will be strangely quiet in our house this week. Mr Styling You has returned to work, my teens are with their dad and our visiting friends have returned home. It will just be me and Mr 6.
Trying to squeeze every last drop out of that summer feeling we felt every day over the past two weeks.
It’s been a fortnight of lazy starts, beach mornings, compulsory siestas and mandatory wine times.
Of salt, sand and zinc-encrusted skin.
Of sun and sweaty stickiness.
Of trying to stay cool while the going gets hot.
And that my dear Stylers has given me the summer blues. In a good way.
My summer uniform of sorts has become a blue one. Three short, flowy, blue-toned cotton frocks have become my go-to summer faves.
Each is SO easy to wear, keeps me cool and works equally as well with a pair of thongs as with a pair of wedges.
Each can be popped in the wash, popped on the line and be ready for me to wear again the next day. If I want to add a little bit of extra length, I layer a white cotton Metalicus tank dress underneath. Too easy.
On the ferris wheel at Aussie World for a friend’s daughter’s birthday.
Keeping cool under the cotton tree at The Boatshed, Cotton Tree.
Hanging out with the uber-stylish Uberkate at The Boatshed.
Spa-ing at Stephanies Ocean Spa, Noosa (more to come on THAT tomorrow)
The details …
1. All for Kat printed smock dress @ Sequins & Sand (I’m wearing size L) | 2. Morrison Lilian v-neck shirt dress (I’m wearing size S – lots of fabric in this one) | 3. Rivale dress by Chipie Women @ French Chic Fashion (I’m wearing size 42)
With all this blue in my life, is it any wonder my toes got the memo as well?
