fall christopher kane for the summer

With my dire 'just back from traveling' state of finances, spending has turned into a luxury. The fact that Summer seems to have arrived (or did the Californian desert confuse my internal thermostat?) helps as bringing a bottle of homemade sweet tea to a outdoor friend date over buying a coffee is perfectly appealing. So while my wish to leave it a couple of weeks before returning to work has left me much more relaxed I am somewhat poorer! But poor in a romantic way, you must understand. Magazines and spontaneous charity shop stops are however being sacrificed for now.

I met up with my dear friend Ellis yesterday (you may remember we went to Stockholm together) for a novel drink and as soon as the utterance 'Shall we pop to the charity shops?' escaped her lips I felt like an addict with blurred rationale. 'Yes, but Ellis don't let me buy anything. I mean it.' Her silence spoke a thousand words and half an hour later I left the place with two items and a guilty sense of satisfaction. She had suggested the first item to me (which I'm wearing in the photograph). One of our shared loves is the sheer black blouse, an item we have together discovered is very easy to find in second hand shops. My response to the embroidery however was a sort of "blah 'florals'" shrug until I considered it worn with a little leather skirt for a Christopher Kane spin. The advantage of my current nicely browned legs and an unusual outfit for warm summer evenings out won me over and after wearing it all day with my high waisted jeans I'm glad I did. Let the hunt for a black leather skirt worn for evening ciders on our boat commence. Here's to unsupportive friends and lapses in willpower!
