Now I know some of you will not be fans of print trousers and I must admit that it took me a while to realise how versatile they can be. The blue swirl print ones I am wearing above I bought last year from People tree (a sustainable fashion brand I only recently discovered). This year’s version here. Both the trousers and top have been extremely useful as part of my capsule travel wardrobe this trip. The fabric is Tencel, which washes well and feels cool even when the temperatures rise.
When I put on my asymmetric cream top originally from John Lewis (similar). I realised that it was slightly transparent so I popped the Hopefashion foundation scoop neck top underneath which solved the problem of the print trousers showing under the top.
I love the way the trousers are floaty as you walk. You can see how I wore more formally with a cream tailored jacket here.
New haircut I had it trimmed last Saturday by the lovely Sandra at Jean Louis David in St.Tropez. What is it about a great haircut that makes us so happy.
If you are petite I would suggest sticking to narrow or Capri style trouser. A friend of mine wears her patterned trousers very successfully. Personally, I prefer the wider palazzo style as the fluid fabric is more forgiving over my hips.
I shall miss the balmy evenings and the soft light of the South of France when I return to London at the end of this week. I shall be back again in late June with more news and views.
PS. Just to let you know that the navy lightweight Parka by Hopefashionuk I wore on Pampalonne beach has now been reduced by 30%. A good deal in my opinion but hurry offer ends midnight tonight.
