It seems these days I talk so much about the weather that I should become a forecaster (perhaps there’s a gap in the market for a weather AND fashion forecaster?). But the truth is so much of my life is impacted hugely by the weather – my mood, my fashion choices, and… ok, just those I guess. The weather here is so unpredictable that I check the forecast every morning on my phone as soon as I wake up to see if it will be a day worth taking blog shots and what I might be able to wear.
While I’m so happy that there’s been more sun than usual this past week (because even cold sun is good!), it’s still not exactly been warm. And so I’m in a transitional phase with fashion; I long for spring looks sported by what seems to be every other European blogger (heck, even the Aussies, who are heading into winter, have their long tan legs out) but the reality is that, here at least, we’re barely moving on from hats and scarves.
So sandals I can cope with, embrace with slightly numbed toes even, but bare legs not so much. Not just yet at least (these babies will just have to wait). And I’m over winter coats – it’s almost May after all. So in lieu of a jacket there’s got to be some serious layering. Basically this was a really long winded way of saying that double shirts are good right now! The usual suspects – plaid and denim.
