I know jeggings are regarded with horror in many a vintage circle, but I tried to make them a little bit '50s with the cat eye glasses, hair and colour palette.

I was talking with a friend recently about how we both still thought of August as high summer, a hangover from our schooldays, when in reality it's July that's high summer, and Autumn can already be creeping in when you're over halfway into August. It certainly has had that distinctive chill in the air. Strange that it has come as quickly as summer did, with no gradual change - in tights one day, summer dresses the next, and then back into long sleeves again. I have an entire wardrobe of things to wear when it's pleasantly warm, not hot, and the transition from cool to hot to cool has meant I haven't worn any of them so far this year!
I'm not ready for Autumn. I haven't worn half the cute summer things I'd planned to, haven't been on enough picnics or watched enough sunsets. I want to swim and sunbathe a bit more before I have to start wearing tights again. So, I am soon off to Spain, to pack all of those summer things into one final burst before I get the 'back to school' mentality and start thinking about evening classes, hot chocolate, and Christmas.
Are you holding on to summer too? Or are you looking forward to the months ahead?
