I’m starving for some newness. Don’t get me wrong, sales are amazing, especially the Zara sale. (It’s obligatory to spend at least one of your work lunchtimes running around Zara like Dale Winton on acid!). But, bargains aside, I’m happy to start thinking about lighter layers and new season trends. If you’ve been similarly starved of sun like we are in the UK, you’ll know what I mean. Unless – you’ve been cheekily hitting those sunbeds and now have a suspicious, enviable glow. I’m less St Tropez and more magnolia right now because aside from risky skin damage, what worries me about sun beds is the fear of being baked alive – like the girl trapped in one in final destination (865?!) #FAKETAN FOREVER PEOPLE

So I’m going to turn the heating up and fake stepping into spring. “Fake it until you become it”as Amy Cuddy  says.. (I cannot recommend her Ted talk enough by the way! Perfect for helping to nail new year ambitions..)

First of my SS17 new favourites is a guide to gingham pieces: the chicest table cloths around…
