Late Afternoon lovin'

Late Afternoon....along the boardwalk

Despite the fact that today's weather was downright miserable (with heavy storms on the way), Spring and Summer are close enough to touch. I spent most of this afternoon sipping hot chocolate while wrapped up in a Snuggie, reading some magazines. I know, I know, sounds like one of my many Winter hobbies, but it was completely appropriate (after all, I am recovering from a dreadful disease). Hopefully all this miserable rain will clear in time for us Australians to enjoy a well-deserved Summer. I can't wait for an opportunity to wear my totally gorgeous swimsuit (floral of course) to the beach.

Anyway, on an exciting note, Forever New has (finally!) launched their online store. Unfortunately though they don't ship overseas, so just take a peak anyway (if you don't live in Australia) and eventually they will broaden their horizons and the beautiful clothes will be available to everyone! Onto the amazing Polyvore I wish I could take credit for. The lovely Lollypop made this amazing collage based around Late Afternoon, a super positive and lovely blog. Liz, the creator, has some of the nicest style I have seen in the fashion world. Her outfits are effortless, chic and very inspirational. I love the way she mixed the bright, summery colors in the above outfit picture. Whenever she does a post, I always want to flutter off to my room and try and create something similar (usually it doesn't work due to the lack of volume in my cupboard) or sketch a cute drawing like Fifi Lapin.
Hope your week hasn't been too wet, windy or woeful! And, to the victims and people in the path of Hurricane Irene; please stay safe!
