It is the sh*ttiest Friday in history (practically): dark, rainy, damp, close and all-round miserable. I am wearing tights today, for God's sake. But because, in the last few minutes, we've finally got our dose of caffeine and scones and croissants, we're looking on the bright side, and remembering that the day before last was horrible but yesterday was quite nice. So, there might be a bit of summer left after all.
Pippa O'Connor is our go-to for casual-chic ensembles and once again she has not failed us. Posting on Instagram, she modelled the prettiest little summer top there was: a sleeveless ruffle shirt that looks like it could be from Alexa Chung's capsule range for M&S but is, in fact, from Topshop (€42).
Absolutely perfect for work, for brunch and for Sunday lunch with the fam, this is a timeless top (until next summer when ruffles are declared OUT), and it would be lovely to wear if you're sight-seeing in a warm city over the next month or two.
Do you follow Pippa's style? Is this ruffled shirt something you'll pick up?
