As a child, all my summers were spent by the seaside. My parents were teachers and we lived on the Kent coast, so we whiled away our days building sandcastles at Botany Bay, rock pooling at Westgate-on-Sea, licking Mr Whippys at Minnis Bay and – an annual treat – riding the Looping Star at Dreamland in Margate. The joy I still feel when carting a cool box full of sandwiches down to the shore, picnic blanket wedged under my arm, primed for an entire day by the sea, is one of the reasons I’d like to move back to the coast. By the time I was a teenager, my mum had bought an old farmhouse in France, so then we spent our summers eating crepes in the village square, swimming…

LOVE FOR ROSIE Our very own Rosie Green returned to Red in our June issue, but this time she wrote movingly and honestly about heartbreak after her husband (and long-time love) left and ‘declined to leave a forwarding address’. We were so touched by the flurry of emails, tweets and Instagram comments sharing support, advice and warm words for Rosie. Margaret Geale wrote, ‘I read Rosie Green’s poignant article with empathy. I divorced my first husband 40 years ago, as we were totally incompatible.

THE SOPHISTICATED SWEATSHIRT An oversized slogan sweatshirt is your best friend this summer; ideal for chilly aeroplanes, windy beaches and evenings sitting under the stars. Go for vibrant colours and wear with frayed-hem jeans, white pumps and large shades. LAYER UP I’ve recently discovered new jewellery brand Hermina Athens; beautiful ancient coins, zodiac pendants and tarot signs from Greece adorned with handmade tassels and pompoms. I’ll layer up strings of its coloured beads along with my faithful gold pendants to create a festival feel. ON SAFARI Since my favourite French label Sézane opened its store in Selfridges, it’s been bad news for my bank balance. My recent visit resulted in an indigo blue safari jacket; an elevated take on a denim jacket. The 1970s silhouette, with extra-large square pockets, looks great belted over a grey…
