Summer is almost here... finally. I'm embracing tight-less skirts, tie-up sandals, and short-sleeved jackets. In fact, I think short-sleeved jackets are my obsession for this season. It's a fun way to wear a very classic piece, be it a trench, a parka or even a blazer... Watch this space, you'll see more of these!
I instantly fell in love with this one. It has a nice utility look which I love, because it works well in many situations. But I was also attracted to the quirky pocket distribution and belt, it's really original and it's quite lightweight so easy to wear. It's perfect for this time of the year as well, when the morning chill means I need a little more layering but then I tend to lighten up as the day goes by. It comes quite big though, so make sure you size down if you order it!
The other lovely thing about warmer days? Bare legs of course. There is something so nice and liberating about being able to leave the tights in the drawer, isn't there? Actually a few years ago that meant planning my outfits according to how long had elapsed since my last visit to the wax bar, but a few years ago I got laser treatment, and though it had pretty rubbish results elsewhere (a lady never talks, ahem), on my legs it's radical: I have maybe 2-3 resisting little fellows on each leg, but otherwise it's a smooth ride to skirts and sandals for me!
Obviously we still have quite a few chilly days ahead in London before the Summer arrives, but I will be milking every single opportunity to wear my legs bare, my sunglasses, and my sunny accessories... it just feels far too good to miss!
