With the sudden arrival of proper Spring weather also came the realisation that all my Spring clothes are still packed away in suitcases under the stairwell. When I started looking for my colourful silk dresses to wear one out it dawned on me they aren't out on my wardrobe rails yet. Rather than make myself late with a last minute wardrobe reorganisation I grabbed what was available which happened to be this cotton silk shirt, wide legged jeans, lavender espadrilles and a blue suede coat for some hippy chic to greet the promising light of summer at the end of the longest, gloomiest, winter I've had to endure yet in this country.
Great minds think alike: my Spanish girlfriend was also wearing a pair of fabulous cherry red espadrilles. I've noted that they are all the rage at the moment and seen a lot of espadrilles offered on the high street and by designers at eye watering prices. Mine cost me ten euros in Spain and their wedge shape means they let me work a heel and pound the pavements of Oxford Street in relative comfort. Next time I go back to Spain I'm buying a pair in every colour of the rainbow!
