It’s AUTUMN!!!!!! I know this might not be welcome news for some of you (ok, most of you!) but personally, I love it! I am a fair-skinned creature and spend of summer , even when it’s not particularly hot, hiding from the sun and continuing my quest for the illusive ‘non-sticky’ sun cream. Incidentely, I’ve yet to find one which stands up to my exacting standards. I like wearing proper closed toe shoes, especially heels, which are mega uncomfortable when it’s hot and I also look ridiculous in floaty boho style clothing. All this adds to the fact that I really do not like Summer.
It’s such a relief now that the chillier weather is here and I can dig out all my jumpers, cardies, stockings and heels…. oh, and gloves. I have many pairs of gloves. What lady doesn’t????? I have very small child-like hands, which can make it hard to find gloves to fit. Thankfully, I’ve recently had some rather lovely acrylic nails applied, which has added about half a centimetre onto my fingers. It’s helped eliminate the floppy finger issue.
I appreciate that summer does offer the opportunity to wear hats, sunglasses and 50s style summer dresses, all of which are lovely, but on truly hot days, when you have to use public transport, sit in the office or trudge round town, there really is very little one can wear, that is cool, and doesn’t make one look like one just got off the ‘plane from Marbella.
So, this weekend I’ve enjoyed de-bobbling my favourite jumpers, rinsing through my seamed stockings and finding new jaunty angles for my berets. now excuse me whilst I go and kick some leaves …
