Elena Perminova, Tuileries, Paris, March 2012.
After a glimpse of warm summery weather on the weekend, today the UK returned to its four seasons in one day form. We had sun (albeit for only approximately 10 mins or so!), rain, hail and, inexplicably, snow flurries! I was sitting in Cuisine De Bar by Poilane* (tucked just behind Sloane Square) with Peony when other customers started gesturing outside: "Snow! In London! In May!" How bizarre!
So how to dress for this changeable weather? Pack an umbrella (obviously**), throw on a warm coat or better still a showerproof trench and then wear something pretty, soft and summery underneath like Elena has. Because the sun is bound to come out sooner or later....or at least we have our fingers crossed that it does!
Recreate Elena's Look (kind of):
Altuzarra Marigold ruffled blouse, Sandro Euphorie silk blouse, J. Crew sheer polka dot blouse, Temperley London Celestine shirt
Miu Miu nude leather platform shoes, Christian Louboutin Piou Piou 85 leather pumps or Topshop nude platform court shoes
*I had the Australian tartine which consisted of Poilane bread, vegemite, avocado and chilli flakes! Yum.
**Of course neither of us were sensible enough to bring an umbrella
