Is anyone else a little bit happy that the heatwave has ended? Have you been coping in the heat? I don’t want to be a negative Nancy but I was really starting to struggle towards the end of this week. I’m all for a hot Summer’s day but in London with that much humidity, eww.
There’s only so many clothes you can wear in a heatwave without becoming some sort of melting popsicle. I was basically living in the lightest barely covering anything clothing I owned (which living in the UK isn’t a lot), I was really having to be inventive of what to wear that will not making me sweat quite as much (shout out to the postman who I opened the door to the other day in my bikini, I’m terribly sorry). It also made me realise that I don’t actually own any strappy tops or camis, I must have thrown some old ones out when moving and basically only have some t-shirts now so I bought a couple of easy H&M cotton camis for whenever the next heatwave hits us.
Then the ‘piece de resistance’…
If you follow me on my Instagram then you’ll know I’ve been getting very giddy about these LF Markey linen shorts I treated myself to this week. I don’t have any shorts in my wardrobe and these would have been a godsend on the weekend when I went to Greenwich. I was debating whether to get the mint or the pink but I am definitely pleased with how good the mint looks.
I was also playing around in my wardrobe this week trying to figure out how to wear this beautiful collar that I got for my birthday a couple of months back. It’s from a small independent brand called Olivia Annabelle Apparel. I was imagining it with jumpers really but I’m desperate to wear it now so I was trying on different looks with maybe a t-shirt and to be honest, I think it works with these shorts and a tee!
A couple of other little heatwave appropriate camis I saved on H&M…
So that’s it from me, this heatwave has desperately got me dreaming of going on a Summer holiday but I’m accepting the fact that that just isn’t going to happen this year so I will save these outfits for 2021 (or another London heatwave perhaps 🤷🏼♀️).
My boyfriend and I booked a few days away to the Peak District next month which is about as much as our Summer holiday is going to be but I don’t mind, we’re seeing family, we’re all healthy and safe and that’s what matters.
I know people are going on holiday at the moment and if you can risk being quarantined when you come back then I’m not judging but I also feel for the many people out there who can’t easily quarantine.
But don’t worry girls, we’ll all be back on the beaches wearing our favourite holiday outfits soon, whether it be this year or 2021, we’ve just got to stay positive and live for right now 😘
Lots of love xxxx
