Regular readers will know that last year, I was really excited to discover US label Eileen Fisher when they opened two UK stores in London. So I’m thrilled to be able to share some of the new found label love with you through a giveaway of a one of their gorgeous summer silk pieces.
Eileen Fisher very kindly sent me this beautiful sheer silk Georgette Round Neck Box-Top in a rich shade of Dark Primrose. Light and fluttery, it’s a perfect summer layering piece…although as you can see, the weather was far from perfect or summery when we took these pictures!
Looking at the top, it’s easy to see how it would work for summer but both the weather I decided that it would work for cooler, and wetter days too. In the name of fashion blogging, I stood beside the water, shed my trench coat and braved the elements – much to the bemusement, and I suspect amusement, of the nearby yachtsmen who were far more appropriately dressed than I.
The irony of the fact that their yacht was named Summer Breeze was not lost on me as I stood shivering in the rain. But I did take comfort from the fact that at least the grey background would make the colour of the top stand out and the gusting winds would showcase the movement of the fabric beautifully! Every rain cloud…
I can’t promise an actual summer breeze to go with it but I can promise one reader the chance to win a Round Neck Box-Top courtesy of Eileen Fisher as worn by me and pictured here – all you need to do is leave a comment on this post together with your email address by Tuesday 17 July 2012.

After my rainy day outing and distinct lack of summer, I’m now looking forward to seeing what Eileen Fisher have in store for AW12 – I think layering is the way forward with these unpredictable seasons.
