Seriously, I don’t know why I’m smiling on this picture. I have been soaked approximately 300 times this week. The kids have been bundled from car to bus to tube to running for shelter under a tree wearing outfits that would be perfect – if they were weather-worn fisherman out at sea in a particularly bad storm.
In fact, these espadrilles are pretty much ruined after one disastrous episode where I miscalculated the depth of a puddle. And the majority of the week has been spent digging out an ancient Next pac-a-mac from the depths of my handbag to throw on at particularly unrepentent episodes, while my hair grew bigger by the second.
Can you look cute while it’s torrential? I’m not sure I can, but there are some pretty stylish alternatives to my pac-a-mac.
And because this is the UK and because we can’t reliably depend upon that season called ‘summer,’ I’ve deliberated, cogitated and digested the best five out there.
Your frizzy hair can thank me later.
I am SO excited that The Edited has been nominated for its very first fashion award!
It’s a contender in the ‘fashion inspired’ category at the prestigious Amara Interior Blog Awards.
