So resort 2013 isn’t exactly around the corner – it comes after A/W and before S/S – but this lookbook from Rag & Bone is giving me some serious dressing inspiration for Ireland’s cool-but-not-freezing-and-let’s-face-it-a-bit-grim impending autumn/winter season. Though it’s true, we don’t all have leather dresses and matching floral printed jeans, dresses and jackets, but chances are you own a pair of black ankle boots (I know I do) and some form of leather / pleather / biker look jacket. So I’ll be printing out a few of these shots and pinning them not to my virtual pinboard but to the inside of my wardrobe for inspiration on those mornings when I’m just not feeling it!

I have to say, though I enjoy warm weather – and I’ll especially enjoy it while I’m in Nice the week after next – I am longing for the comfort of the cooler season, when my opaque tights and woolly jumpers will be back in vogue and I can stop waking up every single morning and thinking “oh, if only I’d shaved my legs, I could wear a dress today” … sigh.
