Typically the weather has taken a bit of a tumble following that golden week or so when we all built our hopes up for any kind of Summer happening later in the year. I’m a big weather fan, I follow the Met Office on Twitter and I always catch the morning weather report with Carol Kirkwood on BBC news before I chose my outfit for the day. I’m not really sure why but I think BBC news is more reliable than Daybreak??
This week I have been less of a fan of the weather and more of a stalker, with the wedding this coming Saturday I’ve offered up prayers for a nice sunny day, however it seems I’m out of luck and thundery showers are due. With this in mind I’ve started worrying about my outfit, and total lack of any outerwear. I have the obligatory pashmina but if its blowing a hooley and cold in the church I’m wondering if I should have chosen that beautiful cream tuxedo jacket from Zara and the Ted Baker Barish dress instead? At least the jacket would offer some warmth while my ass goes numb on the stone cold pews?
I have one shopping day left to amend my outfit accordingly and there’s one accessory that a girl simply cannot do without during the Spring showers, and that’s a good umbrella. If I had to reckon it up I think I’ve had in excess of 50 umbrellas in my 29 years, most of which have come from the pound shop or the nearest newsagents/convenience store when it’s poured down unexpectedly, sodding British weather.
During a quick boredom-busting search online for a new umbrella for the wedding I was surprised to find so many websites specialising in designer umbrellas and there are some awesome designs if you have the nerve to ‘wear’ them. Check out some of the weird and wonderful designs here and have fun making people look twice!
