Oh dear, what a spring it’s been here in London. Temperatures well below May’s average, coupled with rain & thick clouds have made me shiver each day on my way to work.
Britain’s notorious, unsettled weather is created by the clash of warm, dry air coming from the continent which clashes with moist, maritime air from the West.
This makes dressing appropriately a challenge! Weather changes quickly, so you should always be prepared for everything.
Above: Make sure to dazzle in your spring dresses but pair them with cotton tights (wool tights would be overkill) to guard against the Atlantic breeze. I always carry a neutral cardi with me that fits in my handbag and can be thrown on anytime.

My salmon coloured sun glasses are the iconic Céline SC 1747 as seen on Linda Evangelista and Rebel.
Another German on the island: Claudia Schiffer braves the rain in a cute floral dress with short boots, a blazer and a scarf.
