Dressing For April Showers + Carrying Spring Flowers!

If there’s a surefire way to bring a smile and wipe away all the memories of rainy days past, it’s to get up, walk away from the desk and get out in the sunshine while it lasts. And even better than that… pick up some fresh flowers whilst I’m at it.

Whilst I’m not ready to brave the outdoors without a trench coat, I’m happy to drop the sweaters for shirts… especially ones with sharks on. Yep… you heard me. Sharks!

I think this printed shirt from hush is as close as you’ll get me to well… print and colour. I loved wearing it last week! There are some sizes left at hush but also lots more here at John Lewis too.

When it comes to dressing for April showers, being very slightly mistrustful of the weather, I can’t leave home without my trusty Marks & Spencer trench coat at the moment. And because I’m still feeling the cold, I wore a white cami-vest underneath my shirt.

When coping with these less than adequate for the time of year temperatures, I am a confirmed wuss!

I have to say I’m a little bit in love with these J.Crew vintage straight jeans that I bought on a trip to London recently – and they’ve reignited my love for a tucked in shirt and belt again.

To encourage the sun there were aviator sunnies and a bit of ankle exposure in the form of another goto wardrobe item, white sneakers.

And on this particular day, because one bag is sometimes not enough (and I’m really trying hard not to get plastic bags when I go shopping), as well as my cross-body bag, last summer’s round straw shopper came along too.
