With the fleeting sunshine that visited the UK at the end of this week, I found myself in a rather picturesque park agonising about the increasing ruddiness of my cheeks and nose. What I really could have used was a delightful summer straw hat to maintain my dignity and composure. Therefore the focus of this week’s women’s fashion rundown is a poorly disguised personal shopathon.
