shoe-tube-tights.jpgYou might be wondering why I picked such an unremarkable pair of flatties to talk about on Shoe Tube today, but I assure you this post is not about the footwear. It's about the tights. Tights, you see, are something that should never be seen in July, unless something's gone spectacularly wrong with the weather.

There's certainly no air conditioning on the Piccadilly Line where this snapshop was taken, so I can only wearily conclude that St Swithin was right, and the summer truly is over as of yesterday. I haven't seen a pair of tights since early May, and was hoping not to until the exciting and colourful ones come out in autumn. Let's hope it's a temporary blip!
