Listen to an audio clip

I have to say, Sam has a very distinct sense of style: she's wearing a sleeveless, stripy top big, broad bands of red and white running across her front, which you should be able to find quite happily. This is teamed up with a green mini skirt decorated with bright yellow flowers with red centres. Underneath that, she's got on yellow leggings with red shapes all over them teardrops, triangles, rectangles, that sort of thing. To complete the outfit, she's wearing red shoes and blue ankle socks. In other words, Sam looks very, very bright.
