My Design Weekends

dreaming of warmer weather and summer holidays .... corsica would be nice

Deirdre Brennan - Sunday, August 19, 2012


Nothing like reading Garance Dore's latest blog about her holiday in Corsica to pick you up. Especially  when the wind is howling and temperatures freezing in the Southern Highlands. It is about now that I start to get itchy feet.  Longing for the warmth, the sun, the summer clothes ...  for a start.

I just love this interview with Aurelie ... hearing all about her summer essentials.  It does get you in the mood ... her Liberty print shorts for summer on the Mediterranean (made for her in Paris of course), her Gap cargo pants and white T shirt but best of all, her divine vintage white peasant blouse above.  Have noted the white Acne skinny jeans and Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunnies as essentials and are on the list already.

Have also done my research on Corsica ... only 1.5 hours by plane from Paris or by ferry from Tuscany 2.5 hours.  All very achievable once over there ... there being Europe, the centre of the universe.  Well it is for me, sitting here at the extremity !!


The photo above, is one of my favourites. It captures a moment !! I can feel the heat coming off the sand as I lie under the shade of the cabana. Oh yes and the water would be the perfect temperature as well.

Meanwhile back in the Highlands ......
