the unbearable lightness of being

Bonjour my little loves, 

 Yours truly hardly survived these summer days. It was extremely hot, and this old lady really can’t stand the heat like she used to back in the days. My pale skin becomes irritated in moment, nose turns red and my hair looks like a broom. So I remind myself a bit of witch from that story when she kept looking herself in the water and felt nothing but sadness. With these past few days came a little of breeze, so there is at last some air to breathe. With the summer that is slowly slipping away I can finally enjoy the 'quiet' times of my little room where I moved before the summer. (I usually move twice a year.) So I sit there, reading books, entertained by Francoise Hardy while young Bob smiles from a peg wire. I am especially enjoying the sound that my 60s fan creates. (can you ever have it both?) Finally in one of the upcoming days, when I catch a bit of time, I will sit in front of my sewing machine and deal with old projects and start new ones (I bought a book with patterns from 1960s). This summer, except one floral top (on the photo) I sewed, I wasn’t seamstress at all. But I need to confess I am very pleased with this little garment I made. It supposed to be dress at first, but because of the lack of the fabric it became very lovely summer top. At the end of the day, as the hand on the old clock moves on and I prepare for my dreamland, I am longing for the autumn days. When the first rain comes, I will put on my dancing shoes and slip away. And won’t feel anymore 'Stephanie says'. 
Have a pretty weekend.

Adieu; I embrace you tenderly. 
Votre misslikey

super love your sewing project. It is indeed such a lovely top. Am sure it would have been a great dress if you had enough fabric. It is quite the contrary here in my country. We've been experiencing nonstop rain for weeks now. Anyhoo, hope this sweltering heat won't give you much of a prob anymore. Ciao bella!

Ohh myy. So much pretty in one post. I can't believe you made that top! You are so talented! I love the idea of having tangible mood boards, instead of just the internet type. Either way, you collect the loveliest images. Those MJ shoes were made from my dreams and I too can't wait for Autumn x
