I refused to believe I was flying back into winter after getting a taste of summer in the US so it’s just as well spring has made it presence well and truly known a day or two early.
See, while my legs may be in urgent need of some de-forestation, my fashion mind has well and truly switched seasons. After all, I’ve got new clothes to wear and I want to bring them out to play.
And last weekend I did just that.
One of the final things I bought in LA (just when I thought I did not have one shopping bone left in my body) was a stripey top from Banana Republic’s summer sales rack … for $22!
I spied it, gave it an immediate trans-seasonal wardrobe tick and swiped that credit card one last time.
Back home last weekend on solid ground and working off a case of post-holiday blues, I had to strap on a uniform for one of those “running around” days. Littlest kid had to be somewhere. Big kids had to be too … at the same time. Of course.
Food to be bought. Coffee to be had. That sort of stuff. Nothing major. Just stuff.
So, I turned to my wardrobe for “uniform” inspiration and there winking at me was Miss Stripey Banana Republic and a new pair of salmony orange coloured loafers from the good people at Rockport*.
I thought, I may not be going anywhere near a yacht today but what’s wrong with a bit of a preppy outfit to get me through my Saturday?
Do you do stripes? Loafers? A preppy look? What outfits will you need for your weekend?
