We are experiencing some gorgeous weather in the UK right now – it’s sunny and unseasonably warm, we’re even beating the Med on temperature. There’s something about the sunshine that makes everything seem better and my mood much lighter.
Yesterday I grabbed a lunch break and sat out for some sun catching. I must start bringing sun cream to work as my shoulder got a bit red oops 🙂 I also ventured to the shop to buy an ice cream. It’s hilarious that even as an adult sunshine and ice cream or lollies go hand in hand. I remember hearing the jingle of an ice cream van as a child and wanting to jump for joy. I always get a Mr Whippy with a flake if I’m buying from a van.
I got a Twister because of its combination of ice cream and ice lollie. You get the best of both worlds!
The sunshine definitely makes it hard being in an office all day. I want to outside soaking it up, drinking the good old Pimms (Have any of you tried it yet?!) and listening to some summer tunes.
Another thing I find tough is choosing outfits in the warm weather. I honestly think I’m a winter clothes person – I like my jeans and boots and knitwear and find it much easier to find something than when it gets warmer. I’m not a big fan of short skirts or dresses, I find them uncomfortable on the tube and flimsy sandals usually break in the city. I need to find a cool, comfortable but chic summer look and get away from my usual jeans / long top combo.
Maybe city shorts is the way to go, some inspiration from Alexia Chung …..
What’s your favourite ice cream / lollie? What’s your summer outfit?
