“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
—F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby.
Summer is my favourite time of year. Not only are the days longer and warmer, but once you get that glowing summer tan you get to wear the most beautiful dresses and tops…happy sigh, I just love it.
Think summer evening braai’s with friends and family.
Think floral maxi dresses and craft markets.
Think summer fruits, picnics and that perfect off-the-shoulder dress.
Think cracking open that cider or pouring yourself a glass of wine and watching the sun set after a long day at work.
Think outdoor concerts in denim shorts and that perfect colourful top.
Think pink sunglasses, pink drinks and short dresses.
Think beach, sunscreen and umbrellas.
All these little things that remind me of summer in the Cape are the inspiration behind what we create at Mon Ami by Collette. What are the little things that create your summer memories?
“Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?”
