Two things about the British summer - one, you can go from sweltering to shivering within the hour and secondly shorts with tanks are a no no for the supermarket. Okay I mean more than just the supermarket but didn't want to say women of a certain age.
My two pet hates (there are more but in the context of this post) are grown women living in the cities and towns of this fair isle who think shorts and spaghetti top vest constitute being dressed. And those that think tanks with anything other than long trousers or maxi skirts can also be worn in cities and towns during daylight hours.
I beg you all to reconsider. A cap sleeve tee is a better bets with jeans, shorts and skirts. More dignified, and a far more elegant choice than cami tops or tanks. I always wear a long sleeve top with my shorts. I cannot abide showing too much flesh in the daytime. Of course by night as a stripper it is fine - only kidding! But what one wears out of an evening is entirely fair game.
Therefore I was delighted to stumble upon this very fine knit which would for a fresh late spring early or late summer's day look lovely with shorts and espadrilles particularly upon a Boris bike across London town. I rather like the fresh feel of eucalyptus as a colour choice.
