It’s difficult to believe that we are in the 8th month of 2016.
Officially summertime ends mid September but it doesn’t really feel like it has even started yet! As the schools pack off the kids for their long break, and families fly off on holiday, and as the nights start drawing in, there’s one thing we are all thinking of and hoping for:
An Indian summer.
If the weather changes for the better and we have a good 6 – 8 weeks of balmy summer sun it will put us all in good stead for Autumn and the onset of colder climes.
But more importantly than that it will give us all the chance to put on the summer clothes we all invested in when we were told at the start of the year that this was going to be the hottest summer on record.
Those stunning sunglasses that were (and still are) so on trend, channeling Jackie O with their large tortoiseshell frames, and the fabulous linen bags we use to throw our essential daily goodies in, they will get their well deserved usage as we embrace the late blast of summer sun.
And what about those spontaneous nights out, when we throw a pashmina round our shoulders, add a statement piece of jewellery, and head off into town to catch up with friends over a few glasses of prosecco. All that’s needed is a pouch, big enough to hold the essentials, purse, lipstick, keyrings, phone and we are off! Of course the accessories need to match, and if they have phrases embossed on them so much the better, they make a summer statement that’s frivolous and fun.
We are all hoping that the British summer happens. It’s nice to have more than the odd day here and there when the sun cracks the pavement and the world feels brighter and happier, but it’s not happened yet, that’s why we all check the weather forecast before we go to bed in the hope that the long term forecast suggests sun, sun and more sun.
But if it doesn’t happen it shouldn’t take away the pleasure of your summer wardrobe! Dress up, mix and match, maybe take an umbrella with you, just in case, but most importantly, enjoy your outfits and accessories irrespective of the weather!
