Outfit Post: Dotty For Polka Dots

Polka Dot, Summer, Red, Black, White

This time last year I wrote this post welcoming in August and getting excited for all my Summery plans! I’m a big fan of those “what will I be doing this time next year” ponderings, so exactly a year on this is how my August is looking.

In a couple of weeks my best girly friends and I are going on a road trip from London to Edinburgh to see this fella on tour! We’ve done this a number of times now and it’s always ridiculously fun. We get kind of a cabin fever that makes us totally insane and of course we’re hyped up on lots of sugar and wine and giggles ;) This time I’m hoping to put some plans in place that will make it easy for me to blog from the road; Four or five blog posts in a row (one from each day) which is a little daunting for me, but will be an excellent reminder of the tour if I can pull it off.

Aside from that I want to take it easy this August. Last year was so much fun and I have some excellent memories and a fondness for August 2012, but sadly I’m not in the best state of health this year so I want to concentrate on getting fit, eating well and being in the best possible state to rid the evil illnesses from my body! I’m even cutting out caffeine, which is a terrible thought for me!! ;)
Hopefully though, it should give me lots of time to reflect on my wee business plan and decide which roads to take before the crazy Christmas shopping period hits. I want to be in a much better place come the new year, so I’ve lots of hard work to go.

These photos were taken on a little romantic walk boyfriend and I took near my house. It was so much fun discovering a new nook just by taking a road I’d never been down before. This bridge and underpass are so kooky and hidden that I hope to eventually get the courage to take my own outfit shots here, alone. Eep! It’s a beautiful space for spending some time clearing your mind, too. Have you discovered any secret hiding places that you can go and have some me-time? Head out in your neighbourhood and see what you can find!

    And you have the new red Fat Kitty bag!!! I’ve been umming and arrring about getting one for ages. I’ve got the white/cream one, but I’m sure I can find a reason to get a red one too!

    Thank you my dear!
    I doooo, I love it! I like that it’s so bright red! A lot of tote bags are quite dull in colour so this one stands out so much!

    Hee, I’m looking forward to it too! Yay, Edinburgh! What you going to do/see? Any Fringe stuff?

    Oh, I still drink tea!! ;) Mostly it’s decaf though, bleurgh! But at least it’s still Yorkshire! I miss our daily chats, I must send you a message. Lots of love x xx
