GOODBYE SUMMER

door

This is my last post of the summer: Goodbye Summer! I feel as though I have spent the majority of this summer, waiting for it to begin, but from what I hear, it is now well and truly over. I am lucky enough to be in the South of France, a couple of weeks snatched at very end of the school holidays. We’ve had mixed weather, but on the whole it’s been pretty glorious (sorry!).

So, in tribute of lost balmy days, the feel of the sun on your skin (a few days in July if I remember rightly), and long summer evenings, I am posting a selection of pictures of my pompom baskets on their French travels, along with some of the dresses that I have blogged about over the last few months.

Enjoy, and here’s to summer 2016!

TREND ALERT: THE TASSEL

Screen Shot 2015-02-01 at 20.17.57

2104 was the year of the pom pom, but the tassel is the new star of 2015. I had hunch about this early last summer, and asked a friend of mine living in Egypt to source some original camel tassels for me. I ended up with so many that I barely know what to do with them, although I have a feeling that I’m going to be adding them to bags and baskets for a wonderful boho feel in the summer (more about that in the spring).

I also started stocking up on tassel bracelets (neon coloured tassels look amazing with a tan), and I can’t wait to start adding to the collection. Accessorize will have plenty to choose from, and Topshop, amongst others, have already started stocking ‘the tassel’.

I have also just ordered myself a tassel clutch bag, perfect for this time of year as it is definitely not summery, but all will be revealed when it arrives. In the meantime, I just wanted to give you the heads up on the tassel trend which will be hitting the fashion stores with gusto. Very soon.

In the meantime, here’s a little taster to whet your appetite…
