I usually delegate rugby match duty to my other half, but today it fell to me and I prepared for the worst weather-wise. In fact, it was a beautiful sunny morning but I was still glad of all the layers. The first layer is a Hanro long sleeve silk vest, a very good investment that has lasted years, then my Zadig and Voltaire sparkly cashmere jumper, a Vanessa Bruno cashmere cardigan from a couple of years ago, Oasis houli-a-likes, my Gerard Darel coat, a nude pink Zara scarf and old, but much loved Gap biker boots, with sheepskin insoles. My boots have acquired a stain on the front, but I think I’ll just regard it as character-giving rather than a reason to bin them!
Stashed in my bag was the new US Vogue, delivered by courier just as I was leaving the house! Also cashmere wrist warmers and hat – you can tell I wasn’t taking any chances. The bag is a version of the Vanessa Bruno paillettes bags. I had one but the straps were too short to put over my shoulder which i found very annoying and so I made one to my own specs and ebayed the VB.
My boys team won and we celebrated with ice cream on the way home, cherry for me, strawberry for him. Yum!
