Good morning Sunshine! I came across these shots, taken recently, in June, but that gives you an idea where our heads were at when the sun wasn't out. Hedvig and I met for lunch at the V&A, and I admired her tee, by Acne. It's a very fine blend of cashmere and silk, and she said: if she spends more on a tee because it's better quality, she'll wear it more. If I think of the thousands of cheap tees I bought in my life.. it makes sense.

Further to my musings, I am fascinated with the way Hedvig's style evolves. She's like Picasso in some kind of wonderful, neutral nude and peach scented 'Blue period'. Variations on a theme.

In Hedvig's words: 'I'm wearing t shirt from Acne, necklace from topshop, blazer from Zara, velour leggings from a Norwegian high street brand called Bik Bok ( they sometimes do have amazing things in store and those leggings were my last year favourite), bag from Alexander Wang and shoes Acne.'

Title a reference to a funny scene in the sixties musical The Music Man. My sister would get it. Big shout out to her, her wonderful son Anders (my nephew) is in hospital so wishing him a speedy recovery.

Hedvig has such great style! And it's so true..I think I'm finally learning to invest in some high quality pieces then continuously spending on cheap things that I'd probably only wear once or twice.

Hedvig makes a very valid point with comfy tees .. think it's about time I donated all of my "2 for $10" cotton tees and purchased some comfy ones that I will live in endlessly ...

Sorry to hear about your nephew being in the hospital .. hope he gets better soon ..
