Introducing my new favourite T-shirt. In fact it is also by my new favourite designer, Hermione De Paula whose highly original and ultra feminine prints have had me swooning this season. There was a bit of a luxe T-shirt trend that had been bandied about the fashion press during the Spring and I found just the one for me from Ms De Paula, slightly boho, very romantic, with some fairy tale fantasy woven into the design. I have a bit of thing for pink and I totally fell for this print which, at first glance looks like bright florals. But take a closer look at the bright pink blooms...
...and they turn into birds! Petals morphing into feathers. How clever and creative is that? In fact I loved the print so much I got the matching trousers! I found this top so great for travelling. The whisper thin silk is as light as a feather, so it doesn't add too much weight in the suitcase - a must for the travelling fashionista in these days of paltry luggage weight allowances. It's lightness makes it lovely to wear in the heat and it can be worn dressed down for the day or glammed up for balmy summery evenings.
Its generous length also means it conveniently doubles up as an elegant cover up over a bikini at the beach (the theme for this month on this blog!). I grabbed a belt from another dress to belt it up over shorts for heading into town after the beach. Its versatility has made it the perfect holiday garment for a beach getaway. Here I am back at Zahara and speaking of flowers, I love this time of year when the road down to the beach is festooned with a wall of white, pale pink and fuschia azaleas.
