Another gorgeous London weekend. Yesterday, the last day of Summer, we walked all the way up to the top of the Heath and back down to Hampstead, looking for a coat for little Miss A. Don’t get me started on people in shops telling me, “oh, but those are girl’s boots”. I am not dressing Astrid in pink bloody tulle skirts and sparkly choking hazard hairclips. No way. We did buy her a little yellow raincoat for Autumn from Petit Bateau – so cute!


I cut her hair on Saturday morning. The last fringe cut made her look decidedly like she’d just stepped out of a commune so a bit of a bob was called for. I love it – especially now she’s looking quite like some of Yoshitomo Nara’s characters.

The other day I was reading Olga’s blog where she asks about any clothes you’ve had that have really lasted. I’ve been racking my brains all week but not come up with anything. If sunglasses counted however I’d vote these in. I bought them ten years ago on the Kings Road. Lovely timeless Persols. They’ve seen a two pairs of Chanels and one pair of Chloes come and go.
