The first of my monthly picks series – my palette, moods, and what’s on my wish list if I could disregard self control.
July – a neutral summer
Summer is problematic for me – I’m sensitive to heat. I hate the way my hands and feet would swell, the warmth making me lethargic, sapping my strength and will to even get off the couch. Maybe my body’s just not good at regulating itself when it comes to heat; either way, unlike most people, I despise summer.
That doesn’t stop me from enjoying the lighter and more carefree styling that comes with the warmer months – beautiful floaty skirts, bright happy prints, and lightweight fabrics lending itself to new chic silhouettes. Of course my picks would go the route of a neutral palette, because me!

It’s definitely a good time to shop at the moment, the retail industry is hurting for sales and there are deep discounts all over the web/stores. “End of season” sales, they’d say. What’s next, Halloween in August? Christmas in September? Either way, take advantage!
