So... this sudden return of summer to London is putting something of a spanner in the works. I had done the big wardrobe change over (read: carefully packed away all my summer clothes into one of those see-through bags and vacuumed the bejeezus out of it) and moved my thick jumpers up to the 'in rotation' drawer. I had summer dressing all wrapped up and was looking forward to the winds of change. So for the sake of my sanity I am going to treat this week's glorious weather as a blip. I shall naturally be enjoying the blip, but all the while feeling a tad peeved that my new wardrobe plans are being blighted.
As per usual I am drawn to all the same things I am drawn to every year - chunky knits, grey cashmere with costume jewellery or a bright lip, classic coats (biker, camel and down) and coats with a little bit of an edge to them (green jacquard courtesy of Topshop will do nicely!).
The dream purchase remains the Charlotte Olympia Kitty flats. They're just perfection. In the meantime, I shall be keeping my feet on the ground with Topshop's silver smoking slippers and Zara ankle boots.
Last but not least, nothing would be better than filling the flat with the scent of a new nutty Diptyque candle as the nights draw in.
