It has been a hard job of late selecting something from the High St that is actually worth nipping out and buying due to [inserts] weather. Yes the WEATHER. Normally Britain is mildly obsessed by the weather but now we have reached weather saturation in more ways than one. Nothing we do or say is without reference to the weather. Why I'm surprised the politicians aren't suggesting all our London 2012 malfunctions aren't due to the weather.
In lieu of proper appreciation of high street offerings I'm mainly obsessing over tweets from folk in hot countries. Vicarious vaccination(ing) via twitter is cheap and thrilling. Not to mention non fattening as I was drooling over Lay's Oregano crisps a favourite Greek indulgence of mine as tweeted by the lovely Donna Ida, we are both urgently seeking future supplies! If anyone knows any proper Greek stores filled with real Greek stuff including Lay crisps of any kind let me know. Luckily I have found a British supplier of my other favourites the Italian San Carlo classica courtesy of Valentina Fine Foods.
But it is the Spanish that I'm turning to right now in the shape of high street hit Zara. It's not often I rave about a humble t-shirt but these linen numbers are perfect for now and for the much hoped for Indian summer we are now setting our sights on. Wear with skinny jeans, trousers, shorts or a-line skirt for an easy look.
