Rain. Sun. Rain. Sun. Just what in holy haute handbags is going on with the weather? With the start of Cannes, we can't help but feel summery (especially when you look at these vintage images), but there's an undeniable British-ness in the air right now, meaning we're still finding the idea of wearing such things as white jeans in the city, or investing in a killer pair of new sandals, a little bit tricky.

But fashion news powers on no matter the climate, and this week there's been some high-profile moments. Keep reading to find out what has piqued our interest over the past few days…

1. We have been dreaming about summer days and holiday dressing. In the process, we discovered the most amazing place to shop, BeachFlamingo.com.
