Red, White & Blue
I’ve not been particularly patriotic this summer, I must admit. I saw bits and bobs of the jubilee on the telly before swanning off to America, and then caught fleeting moments of the Olympics (albeit with a Portuguese commentary), so it’s nice to be back in good old grey London for a bit of a catch up. On a sunny day, London is probably my favourite place in the world, and based on these pictures it doesn’t rate too badly on a rainy day either when you’re in good company with a bit of spare time on your hands (and preferably a pair of waterproof shoes, too).
These pictures were taken a stones throw from Brick Lane, and I was wearing one of my favourite dresses. It caught my eye on the COS website some time ago, and I was right to take the plunge as swishing about in the full skirt makes me very happy indeed. A little bit Sound of Music, and a big bit Mary Poppins with my umbrella in tow. I wore it on a trip to Paris where the weather was far nicer – I strolled with bare legs to see how long it would take me to walk to the Eiffel Tower. There I go with my wanderlust again… x
