I'm going to be away housesitting for the next few days... I have a few scheduled posts, so enjoy!
Things have been crazy around here lately, but some big news is the new Autumn Collection from Kellie Falconer Designs forthcoming! I know we didn't do everything I hoped with the Summer Collection, but this is a long learning curve for me, and I am so excited to see where we will make it this season! Be on the lookout for my long promised buntings, headbands, lace tees, new totes, and so much more, all fresh for Fall!
My summer uniform - the staples I find myself reaching for every day - usually consist of a denim skirt, (with pockets!), a loose and simple updo to get my hair off my back, and either a solid tee or print blouse. Simple as could be, but so easily dressed up or down depending on the day's agenda.
I spiced up this outfit just the tiniest bit with a more than usually elaborate hairstyle, a silk hair flower, and, as dictated by the scorching heat the day these photos were taken, sleeve cuffs rolled up for a very 40s-50s silhouette.
Activities for the day included farm chores, some canning, cooking, sitting at my computer desk :smile: and a whole bunch of sewing. Glamorous, no? I didn't see anyone outside of my family all day, but that's no reason not to dress up! Develop your everyday, at-home wardrobe to include pieces you love to wear and are comfortable in, yet make you feel classy and beautiful. I know that those days when I feel well dressed for the part are the days I am most productive - even if it's nothing more than a sweltering summer day hidden away in my tent working.
As I write now, it's dark in my tent. I'm sitting here in my bare feet and sweater, shivering. It's that transition where the days are bright, beautiful and just the right temperature, and the nights are just cold enough to make me long for some heat to ward off the evening chill, and not cold enough to justify the electric heater, let alone the wood stove.
But that will all be fixed soon enough when frost arrives to stay for the next half year!
What's your summer uniform?
