We have had the most glorious Saturday brunch sat in the sunshine , clear blue skies and no wind , just very pleasant and still can’t believe it’s the end of March ………. Just loving this first week of spring, the clocks have changed so no more dark mornings and early evenings.
But there is always a downside to this and sadly we could have done with the fashion police out in force with Tasers – seriously I think some people don’t have a full length mirror and what is the trend with women wearing thin fabric nude coloured leggings …….. Just because something has stretch you don’t have to test this to the maximum! It’s like the minute the sun comes out people just rush to the wardrobe and slap on anything ……… exposed wobbly flesh is not a good look …… But it has made me swop some of the wardrobe round and think ahead of what I want for the summer.
The other great news is J.Crew the fabulous US brand are doing free shipping, free returns and duty-free shopping now through April 30TH- just fabulous easy clothing ……. I have also discovered some other nice bits this week as well.
