Summer, Wherefore Art Thou?
Yes, it looks innocent enough. All bright yellow and short-skirted and louche and lassie-faire without a care in the world...but do not be fooled. My legs are cold. Like, properly cold.
It disappoints me to have to reach into the stack of cashmere sweaters in the (late) month of June, but that is the reality of summer in the Highlands. One minute you are sitting on your deck with a cold beer in your hand and SPF 30 schmeared all over you like cream cheese on a bagel, the next minute, you are running for cover as the arctic gale-force winds and rain exfoliate you. Horizontally. It rains horizontally here.
This is my compromise. An oversized cashmere sweater paired with a simple printed jersey Esprit skirt that I found on sale at TK Maxx for £5. Relaxed, warm(ish), and bright.
