We really are clutching to the last straws of summer now, and this outfit kind of celebrates that. As per usual, Miss Patina have created a perfectly pretty dress that is so quintessentially British -and has just been reduced to less than £40- however in anticipation of chillier weather I paired it with a fabulous faux fur jacket I received last winter. I didn't wear it nearly enough back then, however this autumn/winter I intend to fully embrace my pastels, so I'm sure I'll be getting a lot more wear out of it!
Yesterday I met up with Alex from On Serpentine Shores. The story of our meeting really is one of those stories that proves what a small world we live in! Grant and I went to secondary school with her boyfriend, so when she got into blogging he pointed her in my direction. I must say, it's incredibly refreshing to meet someone else from the more Southerly reaches of Cornwall who *gets* blogging. I really haven't found anyone else yet, so I'm looking forward to seeing more of her whenever Grant and I come back to visit family. We met up down in the cove, got to know each other over teas and coffees at a beach-side tea rooms, sat by the sea for a little while exchanging stories, then sauntered up to my parents place to spend some time with the animals. I had really lovely few hours with her!
