…And I’m wearing monochrome. Figures.
It really is one of those gorgeous times of the year that you wake and appreciate the city for its beauty and not for the rush hour grind that it can be sometimes.
And blossom just makes for the perfect backdrop, does it not?
Last week, it was boiling – warmer than LA – now that’s a first. So of course, like a true Brit I wore shorts. But white broderie anglaise ones which are enough to get you fully into summer mode – however, wear with black and it will bring it up to date for spring.
And closed- toe shoes and leather bag will keep the look smart (and no one is ready for my un-pedicured feet just yet!).
I’ve already mentioned that white accessories will be big this season, so I’m giving this ‘Austin’ bag from Kate Spade a whirl. I’m a sucker for practical bags (who isn’t?!) – it’s a great size for work and weekend and I love the statement it makes in pure white – it just feels more adjusted to warmer climes.
And we don’t really need to discuss the earrings, do we?! Okay I’m stopping now, these are the last pair. But just imagine on a balmy evening with a cream linen dress…clearly I’ve already planned my summer outings, too (and they come in other colours, too). But for now, I love how they ‘jooj’ up my classic shirt.
May it forever be eternally spring, and here’s hoping this isn’t the last time we’ll be seeing shorts on the blog. One can dream!
