Heatwave time! That’s right, London is currently experiencing one of its all too few super sunny weekends, and we are making the most of it by donning our summer glad rags and hitting the er, supermarket.
Actually, truth be told these were taken a couple of weeks back but we are still enjoying some much needed warmth in these normally cloudy, somewhat rainy climes. The British summer is famous for being more than a little unpredictable so we do tend to go a wee bit overboard when that yellow thing in the sky occasionally decides to rear its far from ugly head.
This vintage dress is a longtime favourite of mine and given my current penchant for keeping things uber simple, it has once again become a mainstay in my summer wardrobe.
Whereas once I was all about ‘the outfit’, now I’m just happy to slip on something comfortable and hit the park or in this case ASDA. Party-time.
The shoes you’ve seen before. The bag you are no doubt sick of. But this is what I do. I find/get given something I like and I literally wear it to death. Right now, I’m all about the skirt/top combo, and I’m ashamed to say I have collected half a closet full of things in every colour, length, pattern and style. Mostly, if not all, vintage or second-hand. In fact, when I hit Barcelona Fashion Week tomorrow, I suspect this will become my uniform. Skirt, top, sandals, go.
Because I’ll be there in a work capacity, I don’t want to feel overdressed, and for ease of movement, I think the midi-skirt is the way to go. I’ve also been given a selection of dresses from the incredible designer behind sustainable fashion brand Beautiful Soul, which will also be making an appearance throughout the week too. I just adore her floral prints – to die for!
Right now though, the sun is blindingly hot here in Londres so I’m off to enjoy it in the park this time (ASDA can go to hell today), and spend a little bit of quality time with my Hubby before my Spanish trip tomorrow. Oh yeah, and did you know Barcelona is apparently a ‘vegan heaven’?! Yep, pretty darn excited. Adios mis amigos, I’ll catch you on the flip side.
