What I Wore in August

So what did I wear in August?

The answer seems to be “not a lot”.  I was mostly on the beach larking about in my bathers for it was a glorious month and, in fact, a glorious summer.

But I do want to keep up my recent habit of posting my everyday outfits and despite being late to post what there is of my month’s everyday outfits due to holidays, here’s what I discovered I wore. 




I hit a black and white phase, my Jackie O period. 


There was white. 


There was black.



There was MUCH white 




I

And then finally there was a riot of colour!!!



New pink stripe shorts from Next hit the spot, which quickly became my go-to for the month.



I loved this light Next T, so after extensive test driving bought it in white too. 


Charitied necklace.


And that was August!
I really don’t like returning from hot climes and finding myself in Insta Autumn Land,  so I’ll be fighting it tooth and nail with a little bit more of summer dressing, weather permitting of course.
Because - I LOVE summer!!!



A la perchoine, 
Mary x.

  6. Hold onto summer as long as you can my friend! Cooler temps are coming - everywhere except where I live. It's endless summer here much to my chagrin!

    1. Don't know about you but for me Rome was a rush and I barely had time to sit and enjoy an icecream cone, let alone go dress shopping! Shame we didn't bump into each other though.

    1. Yes, shorts will be, probably getting their last airing of 2019 this weekend.
      Yes, it's the yellow broiderie anglaise. So light and nice to wear, perfect for the case. Good in white too.

  13. Ha! I can relate to the "not a lot" styled for August. Here in Florida it's just too hot! I'm loving your white dress and your color riot! Have a wonderful week and thank you for sharing with us at the Style Six link up. ;)
