Best of… August 11

I am aware how far away from August we are at this stage, but months/ seasons are less important to me lately.  Here in Abu Dhabi, there are really only two seasons: Hot and Unbearably Hot.  My solution is to buy a bicycle, enticed by the possibility of a self-created breeze… and how pretty these girls look:

Why is it that ladies who ride bikes always look so beautiful?  Is that a universal law or something?  Like Tennis Players and Musicians.  Always attractive.  Why is that?

Other summery looks I might still get away with include piling on tons of bracelets together, denim cut-off shorts (I’m still searching for the perfect pair), colour-blocking bright shades, mixing patterns and messy beachy hair.

On the other hand, Rumi reminded me of all the things I miss wearing.  Leather and boots of any kind just don’t work in the desert.

I spotted this on Hey Pretty Thing and a little gasp escaped me. I’ve wanted one of these since I was born (slight exaggeration).  Isn’t it so pretty? If anyone knows where I can purchase online, that will ship to either Ireland or the UAE, drop me a little mail. I would be eternally grateful.
