Summer At An End
We are pretty blessed for weather here in sunny Perth, Western Australia. The winter days are brisk and cool and yes, we do definitely get two or three major storms per season, but then the sun will be shining straight after it. As much as I say I’m a summer baby, winter is growing on me. Or perhaps it is just because as I grow older I like to spend more and more time in the house cooking, gardening, reading as many books as I can get my hands on, and all those things seem to be the perfect thing to do on a chilly winter morning. (P.S my latest read, which I finished in four days because I loved it so much, is Phosphorescence: On Awe, Wonder And Things That Sustain You When The World Goes Dark by Julia Baird.)
But now that I think of it, it’s the wildness of summer that I enjoy the most. It’s the endless possibilities it brings and the joyful trance everyone seems to be in during those few warm months. It’s the fact that everyone seems most alive during summer, their best selves.
One must contain even a little bit of summer, even in the middle of winter. – Henry David Thoreau
I bought this gorgeous linen skirt at Country Road a few months ago and fell in love with two things: it’s made from 100% organically grown linen and its style means I can wear it on the weekend, to work and even for a night out. It makes me feel the tiniest bit wild. I’m not sure how I’m going to style it for winter yet, but it’s the little bit of summer that I plan on taking with me.
