Bye Bye July; looking back

AugustWith August around the corner, the weeks of wandering about in the UK have come to an end as well. Though we have a few nice weekends coming up, we have no long holidays planned now until the end of the year, so it’s back to business when I return to NL. Before that, I want to look back at my favourite July moments.

1. My tall shop inauguration at Long Tall Sally
This was quite exciting; never seen so many long sleeves and long trousers in one shop!

2. I discovered 3 great new white wines that I love.
At home, I usually drink a South African Tokara Sauvignon Blanc that we discovered during a wine tour in Stellenbosch two years ago, but these three needed to be added to the future wine cellar:
1. An English (!!) wine we discovered at Stoke Park; The 2014 Chapel Down Bacchus
2. An Italian white to which I was introduced in Piemonte; the Gavi di Gavi
3. A very dry, delish white Bordeaux from France; the Chateau Guiraud 2013

3. I tracked my 200th run along the stunning Thames river in Marlow.
Not a bad place to celebrate this milestone.

4. I spent some time dreaming about future houses during a Thames cruise.
Now all that is left to do is winning the lottery.

5. I got to play Bond Girl for an evening during a lovely dinner at Stoke Park
Though I think I’d make a better Moneypenny.


6. I am very pleased with my July Tall Fashion Finds
1. My Little White dress
2. My high-heeled Sandals to go with the above
3. My stunning Smythson Tote
. My outfit from Long Tall Sally, which will be on the blog soon!

August will be quite normal; back to work on Monday. Next weekend we will be back in the UK for a weekend with the in-laws in the Lake District, which I will tell you all about. I will also write some posts on my recent visits to Marlow and London, plus there are a few very exciting things coming which I can’t say much about just yet, so keep checking in occasionally! 🙂

    Sounds like you had a stellar July! And I’m very intrigued about the “few exciting things”. I will definitely stay tuned.
