I’ve lost count of the number of times conversation has turned to seasonal dressing over the past few weeks. Most people have expressed a leaning towards winter clothes but I fall firmly into the summerwear camp. Partly because I have a rail jammed full of beautiful dresses, but also because I simply get sick and tired of wearing the same old coat week in, week out. At least this year I can pick a Good’un (or maybe several good’uns if I get a bit extravagant with the old Visa card). Top of the list is the shearling jacket – no surprises there then.
Burberry – the absolute ultimate in fluffy, shearling loveliness - is obviously devastatingly out of my price range, but thankfully all the high street brands are (predictably) putting their own spin on the trend. Here are a few that made it onto my radar this week (helloooooo Whistles, Warehouse and M&S).
