There’s a really old episode of Sex and the City in which Carrie finds herself writing from the haven of a Starbucks, and she remarks on how she also wonders about the people who sit at their laptops. To be honest, I always find myself wondering about the people who bring their laptops to a cafe and sit clacking away. I like people watching too much to not find myself distracted by passersby. But having ended our current broadband contract, I’ve found myself without internet in the flat for the past month. So in a bid to not let my blogging slip by the wayside and use broadband as an excuse, I decided to drag myself out, macbook and all. So right now I’m one of those semi-annoying clack-clackers, sat in the corner with my americano trying to concentrate on what I’m doing. Having arranged to meet Amy this morning, I thought it made sense to choose a spot like Ernest, where I can tap away on my laptop without feeling too conspicuous. So anyway, back to the post I was supposed to be writing…
Since getting back from Croatia, I’ve been sort of avoiding the sales.. It’s not that I don’t want to shop, it’s just I really need to save. But I couldn’t completely ignore them and of the few things I decided to treat myself to, I picked out this striped top. I love it’s uneven stripes and it’s made from a kind of stretchy, denim material. There was a matching skirt, but the cut was all wrong, so sadly I didn’t end up with the coord. It’s a nice weight and not too thick for the sporadic warm weather we’ve been having. I don’t know if it’s just me but I feel almost as though I can feel summer start to slip away.
I’ve been trying to get myself sorted and put more outfit posts together, but since moving through Newcastle (and not being able to just bully my little brother into taking them), I’ve not really had anyone to help me. After spending last weekend back at my rents, I shot a few different sets of photos in an attempt to bring my blogging back up to speed by getting ahead with content. With no internet and no photographer, it’s been a challenge.
