the final straw

Right, seriously, where has summer gone?? It showed early promise for about two months, then suddenly as soon as June hits, we regress into cold, wind and showers. I am talking specifically about the UK, and London in particular; for all those in balmier climes, who have now well and truly banished coats and cardigans until September, then please enjoy on behalf of us Brits. I’m not angry, London… I’m just disappointed.

On the subject of summer, here is some straw-filled inspiration and a taster of the woven beauties on the high street this season. Remember the days when your mum used to insist you wear a hat on the beach to shield you from the rays? Well, sensible is now fashionable! Whether you opt for the fedora, boater, cowboy or floppy hat, be it at the beach or just out for a stroll in the midday sun, they all look super-chic. And straw bags are equally versatile and effortlessly “oh, I’ve just come back from La Croisette.” Kruger’s been seen carrying one, and to be honest that’s good enough for me:
