On Friday I was in west London for my favourite buying appointment of the season - American Vintage.
It's relaxed styling and luxurious fabrics hit just the right balance between smart and casual. For Autumn we ordered lots more Son sweatshirts in in 3 great colours - you won't be able to live without one - perfect for the school run, yoga or Friday evening in the pub.
The gorgeous John's dodgy directions made for an interesting walk back to the tube, not helped by a large glass of prosecco and general giddyness which always follows a trip to American Vintage - so lovely!
John was on The Voice last year - check him out on Youtube!
We talked about music - he gave us suggestions for our essential summer playlist for the shop - to keep us upbeat until the sun comes out! Give us your suggestions too - anything goes - Vanessa likes it funky, Mel is jazzy and being a northern girl, I like a bit of soul. So far it looks like this:
Summer in the City - The Lovin' Spoonful
Love Revolution - Will Young
Sunny - Bobby Hebb
Do your Thing - 6IXTOYS
Summer Breeze - The Isley Brothers
