August. Mid-summer. A hint of nostalgia mixed with anticipation. There’s still a bit of the sunny season left to enjoy but autumn is so, so close you can almost feel it. I love this time of the year, even though dressing for it doesn’t always come easy. August is pretty wonderful.
It’s like the last day on your favorite holiday, the day when you feel both sad for leaving something amazing behind, but also excited to be heading home, and September is home, with it being the warm, and cozy, and tranquil month when everything seems to be falling into place.
I’ve been wearing lots of blues lately and falling more and more in love with them everyday. My summer so far has been both lazy and fun, and I allowed myself to go off-schedule and let each day fill in by itself. I’ve been uninspired and brimming with fresh inspiration (heaps of which I’m safely guarding for future posts), I’ve been thinking a lot about me, and the future, and the stuff that makes me happy. I’ve been making myself promises which I intend to keep, and one of them is to never let go of this little space of mine.
Meanwhile I’m wearing the blues, both on the inside, and the outside, but they’re the good kind of blues that help me appreciate the little things, the ordinary moments, the quiet days.
“There’s something in you that the world needs” – my favorite quote of July, hope it inspires your August. Make it pretty wonderful. Lots of love, and hugs, and kisses. XO
