Sometimes I wonder if my nature is quite so full of sweetness and light as I’d like to think. A mean streak in me is almost glad that the winter is now over and the brighter month await us. So to cheer us all up, here are some really happy summer fashions. There is nothing in shops of France, Italy or America any more desirable than the inexpensive clothes to be found in this country at the moment, whether you are planning an early holiday of spring sunshine or merely being provident for the summer which we hope is ahead. My stripped outfit shown here is in vivid black with white. I chose a lovely tightly cut red coloured blazer for the cooler evenings out.
