Two years ago I managed to go away a lot – I went to Helsinki, Amsterdam, Malmö, Copenhagen, Lisbon, Porto and Stockholm. It was a very good year. Last year I managed as far as Paris for my darling’s 40th birthday, which was still pretty excellent. I keep getting struck with an urgent desire to get the hell out of here and see somewhere lovely. We’re heading to New York in the summer and I’ve been promised an autumnal visit to Sweden. English winter is making me dream of sunny beaches in Turkey, Mauritius, Goa… anywhere warm that would enable me to wear bitchin’ summer fashions.

Not to mention the creeping appearance of S/S collections on the high street. I’m here for prints, brights, tropical cocktail colours, bleached denim, big gold jewellery, acid-wash pastels, frivolous swimwear, sandals, tiny shorts for my fat thighs… anyway, I thought I would bring together a little post of stuff I’ve seen around that is making this fat babe look forward to lovely summer clothes, whether on a beach in Thailand or on the roof of our ex-council block that I’m styling as a summer picnic venue.
