BECAUSE IT’S BLOODY HOT AND I CAN’T DEAL WITH IT
Lol. I pray all year for hot weather and the minute UK summer arrives I become your typical Brit. I’ll moan about how it’s too hot, even though I live for days sat chilling in the sun. It’s just different in the UK though, don’t you think?! Especially when you’re sat in an office, compared with laying on a beach abroad.
Mardy English girl moans over. Along with super sunny weather, there’s also dealing with WTH to wear. I can’t cope with uncomfortable clothes, so my outfits can wander over into resembling pyjamas! I think I’ve just about got away with it here, but take the belt off and I could have a nap quite comfortably. I’m sharing all my favourites below for sorting out those summer fashion essentials…
BRALETTES, WIDE LEG TROUSERS & SANDALS YOU COULD LIVE OUT YOUR DAYS IN
Kay. Personal faves… And some obvious ones for me (we all knew the bralette would be in there). Again though, I mostly go for these because they’re comfyyyy. Sack the underwired bra for a triangle option, wide leg trousers over something stiff and sweaty (ickkk but true) and sandals so your feet don’t wanna die while you’re out doing life stuff.
With bralettes I’m pretty much living in ASOS Triangle Bras, like the one I’ve got on here. They’re just right for layering… I usually stick a loose shirt over this kind of thing if I’m venturing beyond the garden. Bralettes are also just right for sunbathing – I can quickly pretend I’m in a bikini top, rather than chilling in my everyday bras that have probably seen better days!
And then wide leg trousers. Obsessed. Especially when it comes to being sat feeling sticky in the office – this thigh gap is gone, and there’s nothing worse than hot legs stuck together on a muggy day! I’ve got a couple of pairs just like this that I feel cool in. Not Kanye cool, cold cool. These ones are actually dungarees that I’ve tucked in – I love how they look worn both ways!
Last up – sandals. Hands down, my Dr Marten Gryphon Sandals will always win. They’re the comfiest thing in the world, and despite the fact they make me feet look MASSIVE in them, folk always seem to like them! I’ve been spreading the love on these on and offline. I think a good pair of quality sandals (this seems like my most ‘Dad’ like sentence ever) will see you through yeaaars of summers.
