So, here's something I don't say very often... I have been shopping, and that's the truth, only truth and nothing but the truth. Last weekend was hot-hot-hot, waaaaay too hot to wear my regular trusted denims. So, partially saved by a white shirt, I crawled into the shadows, opened my mac and bought a pair of navy linen trousers, loose blazer and cardigan... Nothing too extravagant, all from La Redoute, working their natural magic keeping me cool and complimenting my old wardrobe favourites.
And while waiting for the much-needed parcel to be delivered I looked around for a few more linen basics because, really, nothing beats them during summer and, to be honest, there are very few things more beautiful than this "natural selection" so kind to the body, soul and, worth mentioning, sense of style.
Ah, summer days and summer nights, now I am ready to be squashed between the pillowy clouds of heat you bring...
