I am summer-ready: so much so that I ditched the dark colours prior to December and have been living in the hope that my pink puffa jacket would somehow conjure the sun to return sooner. It hasn't. But nonetheless, wearing fresh and bright colours gives me a new lease of energy and a sense of excitement at the prospect of humid evenings - the one's perfect for after-work chilled wine or a long walk on the pier. Here are three sweet and summery outfit ideas to get you into summer mode; it is half-way through April, after all.
