Slowly but surely, degree by degree, cloud by cloud, this exceptional summer seems to be deserting us. This is a difficult time to get dressed. I keep going out in just a T-shirt and finding there's a chill in the air, or the sun comes out and I'm having to strip off a layer by lunchtime. ...

As with the rest of my house, my garden is a work in progress. While it does have an excellent rhubarb patch, it’s mostly overgrown weeds, bare soil and pockets of rubble.

Reiss fashion SS13

We'll be talking a lot about trends this month - both in fashion and weddings. I'm not an advocate for blindly following trends but sometimes they can give you an idea you can interpret and make your own.
