When my phone is on shuffle it can deliver some rather embarrassing results (namely in the realms of Miley Cyrus ballads circa 2013), but today whilst I was making breakfast it graced me with Mungo Jerry’s “In the Summertime” – if I could whistle you a section (slightly out of tune) I would, just in case you’re confusing it with Will Smith or Ella Fitzgerald’s summer themed hits.
It can be pouring with rain outside, but Mr Jerry is always able to coax me into wearing an inappropriately summer themed outfit. So of course today, despite the fact that it is only seven degrees outside (cue teeny tiny violins for this Nordic dweller), I have got my legs on show. As you well know, I am always a champion of suiting, so I am very excited by all the shorts and blazer combos that are hitting stores for the Spring season. Today’s suit is from Tiger of Sweden, and is set to be my invitation season solution. Whilst everyone else rocks up in summer frocks, I will be busting out the blazer and shorts – what do you think? I’m also wearing my fail safe backpack from Fleming and adidas flatform sneakers, which have me feeling like a Spice Girl – in a good way.
