Today is my first day of summer holidays, and to say that I’m excited would be a HUGE understatement. I’m sick of pulling on leggings for work, and all I want to do is wear summer dresses, shorts and swimmers.
This year the heat seems to be coming in great big waves, and when they hit I feel like a slowly wilting flower as I go about my day. I start the morning looking reasonably well put-together, but by the time lunch rolls around I look like I’m having a slight meltdown- running make-up, frizzy hair- basically the very definition of a hot mess.
What’s worse is when you know you’ll be in and out of the car all day, running errands and waiting for your car air-conditioning to stop feeling like you’re standing in front of an oven.

When I had one of these particularly vile Sunday’s a few weeks ago, I decided I was going to suffer it in comfort. It’s not very often that I wear shorts (or pants for that matter) but this pair are so cute and cheerful, and those stripes just scream SUMMER.
Hair up, comfortable shoes and a cotton top and I was ready to battle the heat. Bring on summer.
