someone hearts me!

My first ever blog tag! This is such a momentous occasion for me, a little overwhelming actually...okay I'll cut the Oscars speech. It's taken me ages to get around to posting it because a) It's asking me all about summer and there was still snow on the ground when I received it b) I couldn't decide for the life of me who my three favourite bloggers would be to pass on the tagging c) How busy is January?
But, while summer is a fair whack away yet, I am all for getting in the mood with a little anticipation...

What are you wearing right now? Winter clothes, silly! My trusty navy wool Whistles coat, new checked shirt dress, grey wool tights, biker boots, bowler hat.

Post a pic that means summer to you: You all know what an Aussie summer looks like, so here's what I'm looking forward to for mine this year...

Sums it up pretty well, I think.

What tracks are essential on your summer playlist? I'm really loving Jonathan Boulet and his songs sound just like summer to me. He reminds me of Ian Pooley, whom I might also have to dig out as his music reminds me of the most awesome Sydney summer ever when I had just fallen in love!

What is your fave piece of clothing from the Sportsgirl summer collections? Definitely the Leather Biker. It is exactly what I have been pining after for ages, but there's just no way I can afford it, or I'd buy one in a heartbeat!

Describe your perfect summer...I've had several:

Spending it at my folk's house, going to a beach on Jervis Bay every morning, having an awesome lunch sitting outside at a deli cafe in Husky, lolling about for the afternoon, having a nap, maybe boutique shopping in Berry or installing myself in a pub beergarden...

Travelling with friends to Croatia and sailing the Adriatic coast for a week, eating amazing food, swimming off the boat, docking in picturesque villages, drinking in the best bars in the world...

I never thought I would hear myself say it, but London summers can be pretty awesome. Stay with me here, this one takes a little more explaining, although you could just look at the picture above. You get about 9 months worth of anticipation, being cooped up by the cold, then at the first glimmer of sunlight everyone rushes outside, strips off their clothes and sits around in the sun until 10pm, be it in a park, a pub beergarden, or a patch of grass by the side of the road. You soak up every minute of it, weekends are spent hanging out with friends, playing frisbee, watching cricket on outdoor screens, eating off silly makeshift barbecues. There are so many music festivals that there is often more than one on each weekend and you have to choose between them. Cider, Pimms, Borough market, Victoria Park are just a few of the things to be enjoyed and savoured because without warning, the clouds will come over, and you all head back indoors to wrap up for the winter and play the waiting game again until next year!

The three bloggers I tag are *My sister, who just started her blog, what i would have worn, but it is already really fab
*Le Blog De Sushi, one of the best Aussie blogs out there
*Stompface for being funny and dreamy and lovely
