Wow has it been hot! I mean, really hot. Don’t hate me, but these are temperatures that London really shouldn’t see. I know you’re probably throwing your suncream at the computer right now, but I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, London should never go above 25C. It just shouldn’t… we just aren’t geared for it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a bit of sunshine, but I like it to come with a beautiful beach and a cocktail in my hand…is that so much to ask!?
So to take my mind off my Sweaty Betty situation, I decided to come up with a list of the ultimate summer essentials so that we can beat the heat in style, and look seriously summer ready on that next getaway.
In spite of the soaring temperatures, summer is one of my favourite times of the year. Especially as we never really know whether we’ll have a summer or not in the UK. So, when it does heat up, it’s time to make the most of it. That means whipping out the bikini, grabbing the coral lipstick and slipping into that playsuit, teamed with the comfiest of summer kicks.
Right now I’m living in easy to wear sundresses paired with a good dollop of some amazing suncream – my current fave is Supergoop FYI. For holidays it’s all about printed beach bags, a great pair of sunnies and the perfect bikini to complete the look. And lets give a little love for the cuter than cute novelty inflatables we’re seeing popping up everywhere… OMG the unicorn! Love.
