Junction 18 brown Flounce umbrella: £19.50, eBay

The month of April is famous for showers – although this month has so far been about thawing snow on the hills! I rarely leave the house without rain protection of one kind or another, and this Junction 18 umbrella would be a cute & quirky accessory for “dress up” days!

Olive green espadrilles sewn in white – €22.00,

The clocks have gone forward, the sun’s been out – I’ve left the house without a coat twice this week – it’s officially spring!

Time for some new springtime footwear. Espadrilles are timeless, coming back into fashion almost every year. I already own pairs in bright Grecian blue, fuchsia pink and white which I team up with wide-legged, white linen trousers. This olive green pair would be perfect with khaki chinos or Bermuda shorts!

I saw this shirt dress in a recent weekend magazine supplement and just had to go online to investigate further. It’s from the Banana Republic Mad Men Collection and encompasses both women’s & men’s fashion. Much of the line has already sold out – but cheer up – a brand new series of Mad Men starts tomorrow!

Mario Batali Edition orange Crocs
Crocs Unisex-Adult Bistro Batali Sandal -  £35-40, Amazon

Regular readers know of my love affair with orange – it’s the colour we’ve used on the walls and for some of the appliances in our kitchen.

These orange Crocs, the Bistro Mario Batali Edition, were specially made for “kitchen aficionados” apparently. So, they’re the perfect match for when I’m in the mood for whipping up a little soufflé or something!

Sasha & Malia Obama at Barak Obama's presidential inauguration

In the days running up to Monday 21 January, when President Obama was being sworn in for a second term, all sartorial talk was about what colour and designer the First Lady would be wearing.

When the family emerged on inauguration morning, all eyes were focussed on Michelle – mine were distracted by the fabulous coat, scarf & glove combos sported by the Obama daughters – they’re growing into such elegant & beautiful young women! Apparently their coats are from Kate Spade and J.Crew.
