I mentioned I’d recently enjoyed an al fresco lunch in the country, but I may not have mentioned that there was a dress code. I raided our dress up collection and found this set of quick change ‘tails’, complete with pockets in the tails of the jacket. (quick change coz it’s from a stage play where the actor had to transform into … hmm can’t remember what … but it had to happen quickly). Fortunately the weather was mild and I didn’t swelter.

I hope I haven’t set the bar too high – what will I wear next year?
