So there I was on Monday, musing over my lost penchant for florals, and today I'm back in florals, in one of those garments I bought many moons ago. It must've been sitting on my mind. Wearing something casual, comfy and even a bit 'boho' today, as the fashion cupboard is more akin to a greenhouse of clothes than a swish Devil Wears Prada scene. Read: seriously hot. My crochet knit kimono has been whipped straight back out of my wardrobe and back onto me and every outfit that I can justify wearing it with, I know it drowns me and to some it looks like a huge doily, but I love love love it. Excuse the inadvertent semi bum flash too...!

Tonight I'm going to indulge in an obligatory Thursday evening pamper. I feel constantly rushed at the moment, so I think I'll clean out my room, do my nails and chill out with a couple episodes of Acchi Kocchi, while finishing some copy for Aesthetic. Perfect.
