Hello! Remember me?
It feels as if it was light years ago since my last post when, in fact, it was less than two weeks! But surely that's a good thing, as it means that I was able to get away from it all and leave at least some of my worries behind.
As holidays are wont to do, ours was over in the blink of an eye. Strangely enough, even though the time seems to have passed quickly, the slower pace at which we lived makes it seem as if we were away for more than just the one week. I'm finding it hard to re-adjust to what for want of a better word I'm calling my normal life, which once again involves alarm clocks and deadlines, even if they still only have to be faced two days a week.
As I'd already hinted in my previous post, the week before our holiday was a hectic one. Involving three rather than my usual two office days, as well as a visit to the hairdresser, not to mention the dreaded packing, there was hardly any time for outfit photos, which we only managed on Tuesday.
The midi length dress I was wearing, with its striking red and black chevron pattern, is from Dutch fashion label Mexx, picked up for € 4 in a charity shop two years ago. My accessories were a hessian belt, a vintage celluloid flower brooch and a multicoloured necklace from Accessorize, bought when many moons ago they used to have a shop in Antwerp.
I was despairing about having to leave the garden behind, especially our hanging baskets and patio pots, which would have to fend for themselves while we were away.
