If you, like me, have been graced with the beautiful English weather of late, you can appreciate my eagerness to wear something summery (AKA light colours, clogs, sunglasses). It almost felt like I overdid it when I placed the floral headband as a hair tie round my bun, but then I looked out the window and thought what the heck, I’m an all or nothing kinda gal! This beautiful weather has also allowed me to explore where I live in far greater detail than a rainy day would have allowed. Carshalton Village is by no means your quiet-where-is-everyone kind of village, but it still holds some of the remnants of its former countryside self. There were ducks galore wherever I went; one even got out of the water for a walk right beside me!
If you’ve already spotted the slightly unusual cropped tee with its back slit, I’m pleased! It’s made by Veryan, a brand dedicated to creating fashion ethically and sustainably. This is something I have a lot of time for; nowadays it isn’t enough to make something, it’s making it last that means a lot. If you agree, I really hope you have a click on through to Veryan’s site, I’ve been told there are big things happening for its Autumn/Winter collection, and I for one am counting the days! For now though, Veryan is stocking this top in a few other colours as well. Check out her blog for more up-to-date news. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen how this day ended; with an obligatory coffee-and-cake sit down treat.. Gosh, posing for photos and walking in the sunshine is a tiresome task don’t you know! ; ) x
