British summers are always ironic.

Hey you..yeah you!
With your lovely warm summer, daily outings and cloudless skies. Pass some sun over to us? Prettyplease? I'm sick of rainy overcast days.

Lou Doillon.

Kind of in love with this.
The guitars and Mexican skulls especially, plus that blue door is pretty, no?
Find the rest

Just the basics.

Nothing like simplistic comfort for rainy days.
EDIT: She's called Marike Le Roux. Wonder if that's her real name? It's very unusual.

Beautiful Idealogy.

"Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be." ~J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye.

To be honest, i don't think you can go wrong with relaxed 90's styling, laid back locks and a bit of black and white photography to boot. I for one, am very appreciative of this since the weather in Britain is especially dire this week, disappointingly dull and drab. All i want to do is wrap up in plaid shirts and comfortable jeans, topped off with a pair of trusty converse (very foot friendly guys!) "natural" hair i.e. a great excuses to let the ghd's sit in the corner for a while and gather dust, plus i think it looks rather cool in that grunge nonchalant way, non?

Can't help smiling

So college is officially over, the sun is out, and life is good.
