Summer showers x

The weather is still strange here, if the sun shines it’s getting warm, but we can have sudden cold carrying squalls arriving from nowhere. In the evening, no matter how blue the sky has been, the temperature is still dropping away steeply.  It means the transitional wardrobe is in full swing with the similar layers of winter, except they are lighter and looser: cotton instead of wool, silk instead of cotton, bare feet and summer colours…

Oh for the days summer simplicity..

Easy, gentle, coloured with summer, the satin skirt is an easy addition to any wardrobe.  Dress up or dress down. T-shirt or baggy jumper, it’s the transitional bridge that shouts lazy lux and joyful delight.

Time to lose the plot and find the fun.

You now what you’re meant to do at the start of each season: Gatecrash the party and scoff all the canapes.  But somehow it never happens like that.  Take Sunday afternoon with it’s languid air of relaxation when sofas become blankets and fingers lazily skim across tablets.  And light upon the dream dress. OMG!! That’s it!!..

It’s just like that dress that’s been lying in my great dresses folder in Pinterest for 2 years. OK..not exactly the same..the pockets are missing..the pockets are fab..pockets can always be added.  I love the white, but there’s only the option of blue, red or black.  Red could work.  But it’s a summer dress. You need autumn clothes.  But I’ll need summer clothes next year and WHAT?! Just £45?? It’s in the basket….and do they have any more bits of heaven?

And talking about shirt dresses – Oh my! It’s pure lust. The credit card doesn’t stand a chance.

And not a jumper in sight. Sigh.

The summer has broken here with a bang;  I think we’re having the full whack of autumn rains today.  We walked into school, avoiding some of the puddles and laughing at everyone gridlocked in their cars, all nicely showered but still afraid of water! It was chaos.

It’s brought fall dressing to a head though, and there’s nowhere better for browsing  transitional classics than Toast.  This group of clothes is from their OAS range, which stands for Ordinary Attire Studio and are also the three letters at the heart of Toast.

The design aesthetic of simplicity, durability and wearability at it’s core.

It’s workwear reinterpreted for easy workday wear in the modern world.

It’s everything you want in your wardrobe really.
