Having said I wasn’t bothered about Spring/Summer 14 fashions earlier in the week I’m afraid I’m going back on my word. After flicking through The Sartorialist’s photos I came across this beauty and decided that this was what I wanted to wear now! I can still get those legs out {WHO’S WITH ME!!???} as they have a little colour left on them but I’m wrapping up that top half nice and cosy. Love it! As I said to Tim last week {see comments here} it’s actually a really nice time of year ~ joomps & bare legs ~ let’s embrace it.

m&s

A new crop of models arrived this week and I LOVE IT!

What a mixed bags of lushness. M&S have gone for the 3 A’s ~ Atheletes, Artists and Achievement ~ well, 4 A’s if you count the fact that the campaign has been shot by Annie Leibowitz. I find this so inspiring and empowering for women.

‘These women all possess intelligence, the confidence to succeed and innate personal style. From the physical strength and dedication of athletes and dancers, the honed skills of entertainers, the imagination of creative visionaries and the tireless campaigners, these women are pioneers in their fields.’

I say AMEN to that sister!

Long may we reign.

As I scrolled down my facebook feed Istopped dead in my tracks as I came across Jessica from What I wore wearing an AMAZING pair of high~waisted jeans. She said, and I hereby quote:

‘Not ashamed to share that going to imogene + willie was one of the top priorities on my #‎Nashville‬ trip. Here’s the pair I splurged on’

Did someone say Nashville? Errrrr….yes I have family there. Did someone say JEANS MADE TO ORDER!!!!!!! Yes they certainly did right here.

I’m coming for you Imogene and Willie. I love you story, your ethos and the fact that I can have a pair of jeans moulded to perfection around tiny waist/baby bearing hips/dumpy legs. Hell to the YEAH!!!

‘Excuse my bad bikini line’ is all I seem to hear myself say these days. And it’s not just me. I don’t know anyone who is happy with that line of fuzz that cradles our knicker line. Whether you’re waxing, shaving, plucking or burning that pubic line away it never seems to look good.

‘What you doing talkin’ ’bout pubes gurl?’

Good question. Well, I’m talking about it because it’s summer time and because this Sunday I am off to Brighton {again!} with a group of girls to celebrate Ms. De Bruyn‘s birthday. We’ll be swimming in the sea, sunbathing and, for most of the time, sitting around in swimwear. The majority of us who are going are complaining about one thing or another ~ Mine is my hairy lady mary of downtown abbey {I’m between waxes and am never sure what you’re supposed to do?! What is the answer people???} ~ others don’t want to get their white body parts out, large bottoms, wobbly bits, bad bikini’s when lying down, bad swimsuits for the boobs, cellulite….The list is endless…and pointless.

Pointless because these things should not matter. I’m not stupid enough to think that they don’t but they shouldn’t and so I’m going to try really hard on Sunday to not care about my bumpy, stubbly bikini line, my cellulite~y legs and my varacoise veins. I shall concentrate on getting to the waters edge without hurting my feet on the pebbles, with swimming in the sea for as long as possible, with finding a way to make Ms De Bruyn cackle with laughter, with making K Dog do the splits for me and with plying Sugartits with cider even though I know she’ll be hungover.

Forget the lumps, bumps, sags, hairy~ness and odd bits of your sweet bodies and concentrate on the laughter, the stories, the fun times and, in this case, the excessive drinking.

Happy weekend y’all.

Please remember to wear sunscreen.

With my next adventure coming in just over a week I am heading off ~ by train ~ to Berlin for a few days to see a friend and indulge in naked saunas {see here} then I’m heading to Vienna to see my cousin and my brother and finally passing back through my dear, dear Paris on my way home. As I preached here, luggage is important. I shall be taking a small wheelie case for ease off and onto the trains but for my personal items I’m on the hunt for a nice rucksack ~ sporty ones need not apply
