BRITISH SUMMERTIMEUmbrellas to the ready!
They call it a typical British Summer, and it arrived with a vengeance this week bringing relentless torrential rainfall, roaring thunder storms and uncomfortably muggy weather together with intermittent spells of very warm sunshine. It’s playing havoc with my decision-making when it comes to choosing an outfit, but I’m not going to be defeated by the British summertime; I refuse to resort back to my autumn/winter wardrobe and transitional pieces for the sake of a miserable weather forecast. It’s annoying enough that I can only wear my sandals and sleeveless tops for a few months of the year, without having to swap back to jumpers and closed-toe shoes during the month of June. So, when the meteorological conditions allow (i.e. it’s not overly cold or pouring with rain), I don my summer attire, hope for the best and ensure I’m carrying the essential transitional accessories: sunglasses and a large umbrella – such a juxtaposition!
Wearing: Sandals, Aldo; Shirt, Warehouse; Jeans, Zara; Bag, Mulberry
