Missing Summer

Over time I have come to love all season. They all have special charm but for today I am missing that real South African summer feeling and I’ve been thinking about the December summer holidays I used to spend at home, running around in the garden and the hours spent in the swimming pool.

I’m comforted by thoughts of incredibly hot days, dry, silent air, late afternoon rain storms, shorts and dresses, green grass, endless high blue skies, hot bricks around the pool, falling asleep in the sun, warm skin, doggies sleeping in the shade … such wonderful summer memories.

So here are some other beautiful reminders of summer.

People watching and outfit spotting

I love people watching, especially when said people are ridiculously stylish so I’ve put together my top 10 street style blogs to follow.

1. The Satorialist
Of course, the blog that started it all. Scott Schuman’s wildly popular site launched in 2005 and has been steadily growing since then.
