Late Summer, Black Lace, and Peter Pan Collars

Life has been hectic lately, with lots of work to be done and plans to be made. I have lots of exciting ideas for the blog, and with autumn fast approaching, I'm ever-conscious of the value of time. I'm not ready to say goodbye to summer just yet though, and I'm hopeful that August will grant me at least a few more sunny days, and the prospect of some final adventures.

These outfit images were taken at the start of August, and were mainly captured in my back garden. Sometimes I have grand ideas about the perfect location for a photo session, but that idea doesn't come to fruition easily, or I'll arrive at the ideal place and it will be too crowded for me to really get down to the business of taking photos. But I find that some of the images I end up liking the most, have been taken in everyday places that might otherwise be overlooked, rather than far-flung, more glamorous locations.

On this day, I wore a black lace top with a contrasting peter pan collar in white, and kept the rest of the look quite classic, with my holographic 'love' handbag as the main focal point. I couldn't resist wearing some colourful socks though, with a playful Russian doll print.
