Lace in Cream

It’s insanely warm now in the Southern Hemisphere having summer finally kicked in and took hold of the season. So when it comes to the clothing department, the shops have been flooded with lace, crochet, chiffon and light fabrics in dominantly white and cream colours. From the local brands Sportsgirl and Glassons to the International fashion houses like Zara and H&M, shoppers are frolicking to fill in their summer wardrobe. There are also nautical themes which maybe encouraging people to go to the beach and chill. Oh well, wherever you go and whatever you do, don’t forget to slip, slop and slap. That is, Slip on a shirt, Slop on the 30+ sunscreen, Slap on a hat. Wait there’s more…  Seek shade or shelter, Slide on some sunnies.  As Wiki defined, “Slip-Slop-Slap is the iconic and internationally recognised sun protection campaign prominent in Australia during the 1980s.” It is still now and that’s what I do not only on summer but the whole year through :)



When it comes to backdrop, nothing can complement the lace more than the abundant white jasmine flowers that come during late spring 'til early summer. And I don't have to go very far for this post as this was shot in our backyard. Yes, we have a little wall of jasmine and an ornamental fountain and benches.


These flowers are in bloom for more than a month now and give us a scent delight when we are tending the garden or hanging the laundry. I love the jasmine notes which most perfumes contain including the most expensive perfume in the world the Clive Christian's Imperial Majesty.  But I'm contented with my Chanel No. 5 which also contains jasmine amongst others.


As for my OOTD, the lace on the top bodice gives a summery feel while the chiffon in the lower part provides the chill factor.
