Sailor, Sailor

May 16, 2016

Ok, so I’m not wearing boat shoes (although I did find a pair of mine hidden deep inside my wardrobe the other day) or a sailing hat but I figure the classic Breton stripe and riverside location alludes somewhat to a nautical lifestyle and detracts ever so slightly from the fact that I am well and truly a complete landlubber.

Saying that, I would love my own little rowing boat one day and while I’m not one for the high seas,  I do enjoy a riverboat dabble. Most people I speak to when discussing their ‘dream home’ seem to have the romantic notion of living by the sea – hearing the waves gently crashing and being able to wander down onto the beach early in the morning. But me? I would love nothing more than to live beside the river – perhaps it is the Ratty in me – but I always find it so relaxing and in Summer, just magical.

I didn’t actually intend to speak about rivers – never a dull moment here! – but, as I’m sure many do, I love a good stripe. I got this recently on a little birthday shopping spree (I’m looking to do a ‘new in’ Spring Additions post soon), it looks great paired with ripped jeans and the all important, and dare I say, very on trend, bomber.

On a little side-note, I’ve bought a new pair of silver shoes! I wore my others so much, the bottoms actually fell off (in Waitrose I might add – not my finest hour) so I felt it was time to purchase another. I’ll apologise now for how often these will appear in future posts but I do love a metallic shoe.

“The Mole was bewitched, entranced, fascinated. By the side of the river he trotted as one trots, when very small, by the side of a man who holds one spellbound by exciting stories; and when tired at last, he sat on the bank, while the river still chattered on to him, a babbling procession of the best stories in the world, sent from the heart of the earth to be told at last to the insatiable sea.”
