This week has brought about the most amazing and extremely rare turn of events. An entire weekend of blue skies and balmy weather, unmarred by a single cloud. On my extensive journeys from Peterborough to London to Bournemouth and back (far-flung relatives, what joy!), the country was basking in the most wonderful Mediterranean-style April sunshine. On the beach people were happy and relaxed, in the city people were, well, less stressed than normal. Not as claustrophobic as a hot summer’s day, it was just beautifully clear and energising, the perfect tonic for us weather-obsessed islanders. This was followed by a timely return to the status quo on Monday morning, with a drop of ten degrees as people returned to work. But what joy there is in that! Sunshine for playtime, and who cares about the rest!
Pink Cashmere For Spring
In that mood, I bring you an outfit for soaking up the sunshine. Pink cashmere that shouts ‘Summer is Coming!’, and brings light to your face, whether or not the sun is shining. It’s 360 Cashmere and it’s the most glorious combination of pinks – bubblegum and fuchsia – with both the colour and the stripes, of course, being key SS17 trends. I kept it fresh with a crisp white shirt underneath, an old favourite from Joseph, always a good bet for generous sleeve length, and very much a HøFSisters’ favourite when it comes to investment brands.
Premium Long-Legged Denim
The jeans are top-of-the-range Goldsign Lure, most definitely not a light-hearted purchase. All I can say is that my last pair were worn to death, such is the comfort factor of the material. They are like a second skin, with none of the stiffness of traditional denim, and, most importantly, they are a great length for the long-legged. All of which factors still may not add up to justify the extreme damage to your wallet; to which I say, I hear you! The rise in the price of premium denim is alarming to say the least.
Cute Shoes In Large Sizes (At Bargain Prices)
At the other end of the expense spectrum, but crucially without any less of the comfort factor, these nude faux suede heels from Andypola are a steal. They are a wear-with-anything colour, and genuinely I could walk around in them all day. Andypola is a fantastic find for HøFSisters, with a huge range of affordable shoes in larger sizes (up to an EU45), perfect for workwear or smart casual wear. We are delighted to offer you an exclusive discount with Andypola until the 21st April – use HOFSISTERS at checkout for 15% OFF.
