 Dress - Vintage
Necklace - Gift
Shoes - Primark

So, after three months, here we are. All the times I've apologized for not posting before added together genuinely do not compare right now... But, you know, I did say that I might not blog this summer, I just never thought it'd be this long. Hope you're all well, though, and I cannot wait to get back to blogging and catching up with you lot!

I've so much photos from this summer and as it's getting more and more dreary outside, I'd say it's the perfect time to look back at all the lovely little summer days. These, for example, are from July/early August (haha). A lot has changed since then, my hair's shorter and less curly, I'm back in England living with new people and there's no fields or seaside to take photos at. All in all I had a wonderful summer:-) I saw family and some friends, wore all my vintage dresses, (like this dreamy cream one that I love and had missed) cooked, baked and ate a hella lot, swam almost every day, sew a little, had picnics and all things nice. And as it was the hottest summer in Finland since 1960-something, I am now ready to face the rainy autumn in Leeds. I'm sure it'll be just as splendid as the summer was:-) And don't you be shy, let me know how you've been these past three months (haha), what've you been doing, how are you, what's the gossip?

Isabella said...

OMG, you're back! No apologies necessary, just happy to have you back in the blogosphere, and with lovely Finnish backgrounds to your photos to boot :)

Love this cream-colored vintage dress, it looks like something a poet (or muse) would wear.

Oh wow, your summer DOES sound like it was wonderful wish mine had been that dreamy. Cute dress too and your mani looks cool.
