Taking a short cut

Claire Lopez Shorts Leave a Comment

So when I said last week that a sundress was the only thing you needed in this heat, that was obviously poetic license because clearly a pair of shorts is also ideal. But city shorts aren’t quite the same thing as beach shorts and if you get it right a pair of posh shorts might even work for the office. …

You are my sunshine

Claire Lopez Colour, yellow Leave a Comment

We have gone from the sublime to the ridiculous – 27 degrees to under 7 degrees.
