Sunday Best: Lady in waiting


Waiting for Summer to return!

In general I would say that we Brits have become accustom to the annual anticlimax that is British Summertime but this year has been a monumental disappointment. The inclement weather has been relentless, it has rained, it has drizzled, it has poured in biblical proportions. Armed with a sturdy brolly and a pair of Hunters, I weathered that perpetual storm easily enough but what came next was harder to navigate.


Muggy days when the sun is permanently hidden behind a thick barrier of clouds. Is it warm or cold? Who knows... Day after day, I have found myself hopelessly rummaging around in my wardrobe in search of something suitable. Only to find that everything that fit the bill was in dark unseasonal colours that just added to the over all doom and gloom. That is until I found this pastel bouclé jacket in the Asos sale. I had completely given up on buying summer clothes but this is the perfect unseasonal, seasonally appropriate jacket. Plus it reminds me a little of HM Liz's Jubilee get up, which I feel can only counts in its favour. Since it is woven with so many different colours, it goes with almost everything and still looks summery even if the weather is on the gloomy side.

What have you been wearing to combat the horrible weather?
