An Old Love | My Life

There's something very special about writing and receiving letters. I recently purchased a beautiful typewriter  - I know, very hipster of me - but I've fallen head over heels with it! The sound of typing and the ding for when you get to the end of the page makes me so happy! It's made my letter writing a little ritualistic, I take so much more time writing and I always make sure that I light a candle and play some music to get the most out of the experience. I love writing letters, I've always loved the thought of sitting down and sharing your life with someone you love in writing. I love all forms of cards and letters. My favourite part is picking out the paper and envelopes, I could spend hours looking at stationary. I have a little collection of cards I keep just in case someone is in need of congratulations or a bit of a pick me up. I always make sure to add something special to my letters and cards as well like stickers and my recently purchased Kate Spade stamp. 

Now although I love writing letters I think receiving them is just as special. I've had a few pen pals in the past and have always looked forward to receiving their replies. I've kept every letter I've ever received. I think theres something special about opening a box and skimming through papers filled with thoughts and wishes from the past. I also want to have something that I could show my kids and grandkids from when I was 17. Social media and emails seem so temporary. 

There wasn't much point in me writing this post but it's something thats been making me very happy recently.

 There's nothing I love more than a classic peter pan collar. That's why when I saw this top I knew it had to be mine. The fact that it's sleeveless makes it even better. I can already tell that these shorts are going to be a staple in my summer wardrobe. I've been looking for a pair like these for ages, they look so much better on me than the usual jean ones do. There's not much to say about this outfit, It's really quite simple but I love it all the same.
