Bohemian chic is not a look I normally go for, but it's often the most practical and obvious choice on hot summer days: cotton maxi skirt, sleeveless tank... job done. And trying to avoid the infamous Lady Diana backlit-skirt shot was not easy when taking these photos, but the best lighting for that evening was definitely the sun being behind me. It was sooo pretty filtering through the trees.... when we get hot days in Blighty, the countryside is really quite beautiful.

So the UK's long weekend is long over (boo), but here's to a great week to you all :))

  10. You look so pretty! I lean towards boho when it's hot too. OK, I kind of lean towards it when it's cold as well, but not as much. :)

    I've never mastered bracelet stacking, though. I'm kind of jealous.

  21. Wonderful how you manage to be elegant even in boho chic. Your hands are amazing - love your rings, bracelets, and that blue polish!

    I have great affection for the Lady Diana backlit skirt - I was so outraged by the condemnation heaped on her that, for many years, I eschewed slips altogether in solidarity. :)
