A lovely morning for a stroll with ‘Emma’

cashmere wrap

There’s an age-old custom that has it that whatever the weather is like on St. Swithin’s Day (July 15), it will be like for the following forty days too.

‘St. Swithin’s day, if thou dost rain,
For forty days it will remain.
St. Swithin’s day, if thou be fair,
For forty days ’twill rain nae mair.’

Well, today is St. Swithin’s Day, and thankfully the morning dawned brightly, with beautiful blue sky, barely a wisp of cloud, and not a drop of rain to be seen or felt.

It was a perfect morning for a summer stroll through some of our scenic Irish countryside, but as I stepped out, I detected just a hint of chill in the air, with a light breeze whispering over the morning dew. So, I reached for my Emma cashmere wrap and draped it across my shoulders for that little extra warmth needed until the sun rose higher in the sky.

The Emma cashmere wrap is perfect for any such stroll or outing, at any time of day in any season. The one I’m wearing here is navy, but it is also available in our full range of colours, with something to suit all tastes and ensembles.

I wouldn’t be without my own Emma cashmere wrap, and I hope you’ll come to enjoy one too.

I hope too that the St Swithin’s Day custom comes true, and we get another 40 days of beautiful mornings and fine days!
