We literally cannot wait for the summer and simply cannot stop ourselves from daydreaming about summer dresses, flip-flops and sunglasses. It seems like a million miles away but we’re now in the home stretch to spring, and summer won’t be too far behind. Now there’s summer then there’s the British summer but right now we’d take a day of glorious sunshine, intermittently spread between the odd shower, over a January day anytime! The things we’re looking forward to the most this summer are;
Floral prints; they were all over the S/S catwalks and have already been spotted on celebs such as woman of the moment Rihanna. However, the pop princess was probably in warmer climates at the time!
Sunshine; the feeling of the warm sun on our (SPF protected) skin. We’re not quite sure what exactly it is, but there’s something about feeling the heat of the sun on our skin that puts a smile on our face.
Eating (and drinking) alfresco; we can almost taste that first sip of chilled rosé, almost…
Walks, picnics and anything else we can enjoy outside; we think we’ve been cooped up indoors for way too long and are hankering after milder weather and lighter nights so we can do more with our days.
Summer trends; they’re usually lighter brighter and more fun than winter trends, saying that we’re usually lighter, brighter and more fun in summer too! The main themes to look out for are the 70’s, think flares, floaty blouses, bo-ho dresses and of course no 70’s outfit would be complete without a hat. Bold colours, self explanatory but generally the brighter the better. Maxi lengths for both dresses and skirts. Interesting prints, although we doubt we’ll be adopting the fruit print trend. And simple minimalism, a trend we probably will try.
That summer feeling; we’re aware of the fact that many moan just as much in summer as they do in winter, but for the most of us we tend to feel happier during the summer months. We can’t explain it; we just can’t wait to feel the warm fuzzy feeling of summer again.
