The Shortie

As the wedding/race/christening season is well and truly upon us, with invitations popping into the inbox, an all too familiar feeling of dread overcomes even the most confident: what to wear?!

Or more specifically, what to wear during the  British “summer” – in either an artic wind or tropical heatwave, this year more so than ever, there appears to be nothing in between.

Last month the former blew across the Stray in Harrogate. Desperately in need of a jacket, to complete my outfit, one spectacular enough to compliment an existing silk shift, but versatile enough to wear again. Enter the Chanel-esq shortie. Those familiar with my work will have seen several incarnations of the Shortie. It is the perfect solution – using Linton Tweed. Textured enough not to be “twee” and too matchy, but funky enough to wear with jeans.

So for the past month, whilst the artic wind has blown, you’ll have found me mostly wearing my new lime Shortie.

The perfect companion for London - lightweight enough to carry when the sun comes out, warm enough to keep out the chill when the wind blows
