We're two weeks into May and that means two more weeks to June. That's right the start of Summer is a fortnight away! Yikes, the Winter went on for so long and Spring has been pretty erratic - to the point on some morning I longed for my gloves....that's so not right! 


Something to get me in the mood is the intense blue summer sky, its inspired many artist; Matisse, Klein and designers. I love this colour it suits all skin tones and really make you glow when worn simply with no fuss. My oldie but fab favorite outfit is a jersey Wallis dress bought  over three years ago. First worn to celebrate our first meal out after having a baby without the baby attached! It's versatile enough to wear to the office or meet for drinks with the girls. So don't shy away from this colour, it really cheers the heart and brings you a step closer to the sunshine.
