We, or I for one didn’t think the sun was EVER going to shine again. Looking at the weather forecast for this week here in London town… it appears all change – it’s gonna be hot hot hot! (Ignoring that it’s hot, clammy & over cast right now…)
In being truly British – I still don’t quite trust that it won’t rain in the biblical way it appears to have done over the last few weeks; we must though, have faith that it is now summer. Officially. (But a sunny one please.)
From the way this week is looking (I can’t bring myself to say ‘the summer’ it’s too much like commitment) we may need a hat. For general out and about business and going on holidays etc.
When it comes to hats I don’t want to spend a fortune on a hat that’s going to be squashed, sat on, covered in sun screen and sea water and just generally abused.
I’ve have a hat from H&M, similar to this one for three years; I’ve plans to still wear it this year… once I’ve re-shaped it…
H&M Straw hat £8.99
This is also a cracker. Available in white/creamish as well.
H&M sun hat with straw detail £9.99
Maybe it is the joyousness of seeing some sunshine for many many hours this weekend, but suddenly all things colour seems oh so right (fear not, I’m sure it will pass and normal service will resume). But in the meantime…
Sunglasses. So much choice. I’m not yet enough of a grown up to be trusted with proper real sun glasses… I’m a sling-in-them-in-a-bag, or pocket with keys and phone… then oooops oh there’s a scratch and away we go.
Look at these beauties… these could make me pay attention to my careless slinging.
Oliver Bonas Ombre Angled Orange & Pink Sunglasses £24
I found these by chance when looking for something else… great colour. And bonkers price.
M&S Laguna Wrap Around Oval Sunglasses £9.50
I’ve banged on before; but I think that just a switch of accessories (or accessory, singular) can just update ones outfit to make it feel more ‘of the season’.
Because I generally work from home I seemingly wear much of a much-ness all year round at the moment – adding or taking a way layers as required, but with earrings or bags… a little tweak here or there and things can feel fresher and more seasonal.
This are every shade or gorgeous.
& Other Stories Rainbow Rhinestone Hanging earrings £27
I love these earrings too… they would for sure add a little something to a work day outfit don’t you think?
& Other Stories Ornament Hoops £13
I’d also like one of these please. Or two.
Hush Lightning Star Hair Clip £15
These are also a little bit fabulous… hair slides are not just for the under 8’s – bring it on.
Accessorize 4 x resin snap hair clips £6
Do you have accessories that you add/take away to your outfits to make them more ‘of the moment’ as the seasons change? I’d love to know, do leave a message in the comment box below…
