Summer coats for a chilly spring

Occasionally I experience bouts of extreme crankiness; I’ll stomp around in a dark, irascible cloud, grumpily huffing and puffing my way through the day. I usually snap out of it pretty swiftly and return to my usual, cheerful disposition. Over the past week or so the weather in London has been glorious; clear blue skies and splendid sunshine. However it’s still chilly and I’m struggling to dress in accordance with the climate. Being too hot or too cold provokes a fit of the grumps; which is no fun for me and especially taxing for the poor souls who have to put up with it. I’m all about 70’s vintage right now, but floaty skirts and flimsy peasant blouses are tricky to layer. The answer lies in a summer coat that can be slung over a light outfit and  also comes in handy for summer weddings.
