Yes, I know I have photographed these shorts before, but that was with tights. The weather was warm enough in New York for bare legs and boots. I really rate this combination as a good transitional mix. So many clients are stuck at this funny point in the season when the weather is erratic. Try and have bare legs for as long as possible. I always seem to forget just how many months we have to wear tights for. Resist as long as you can! Incidentally, these boots are the perfect height for daytime – approx 65mm. The sweatshirt has a thin vest underneath in case I got too hot and the hat kept the sun at bay. If you are out shopping, look no further than a small cross body bag. Big enough for keys, phone, purse and a lipstick maybe. Your hands are free for browsing and it doesn’t give you back ache. Add a couple of bits of jewellery, or a scarf and that’s it.
