Feeling lighter already!
It’s been a long time!
I became a wife last weekend .. and I’ve never done anything better my whole life. The joy of being Oliver’s ‘other’ is the simplest, yet fullest, joy I’ve ever felt. 
To marriage!
… And many, many posts to come.

It’s been a long time!

I became a wife last weekend .. and I’ve never done anything better my whole life. The joy of being Oliver’s ‘other’ is the simplest, yet fullest, joy I’ve ever felt. 

To marriage!

… And many, many posts to come.

I’m blogging today for my most generous and hospitable of hosts,
my dear friend Astrid, who may be the only person who reads this
blog anyway! I’ve taken a hiatus and I feel I am neglecting a duty
to supply her with endless ramblings of lovely things…. especially
as I’m occupying her comfy couch! But really because I just caught
a glimpse of J.Crew’s fall collection and long to bundle up in
cashmere sweaters, throw on some jeans and a pair of boots and,
if we’re going crazy, maybe even a scarf! {It’s hard to fathom this
from South Sudan, where there is only one season .. and it comes
in versions of hot and much hotter}. But there is something about
this time of year, back home anyway, that makes me want to enjoy
the bounty of autumn as it slowly encroaches… apple cider and the
last bonfires of the season, football games and cozying up with the
one I love. 
But for me it is sundresses and sandals .. and come December, I’ll 
be perfectly pleased I have sun every morning!

What a beautiful skirt. It adds dimension and texture to this ensemble in a subtly romantic way.

I’ve recently fallen in love with Mad Men. I know, I know - I’m about three seasons late, but I hold firm that it’s better late than never! Banana Republic has launched a Mad Men collection that is, on the whole, gorgeous. I’m not keen on the women’s line, but the menswear is spot on. I think I would have preferred to see a J.Crew-Mad Men collaboration, but I presume there’s a reason J.Crew didn’t bite?
