As we plough through July, August just a few weeks away we are well and truly into Summer holiday territory so I wanted to focus today’s Sunday Edit on some much needed sunshine inspo to get your style juices flowing ready for your own holiday. Whether you’re staycationing or heading to the tropics its the perfect excuse to have fun with your clothes and flash some skin whilst you’re at it… just remember to stay true to your personal style, be you… with a glimmer of sunlight…
Writing this from sunnier climates I don’t have my usual Sunday evening dreads and it makes me ponder why I have them in the first place. It used to be work, going back to a deadline or a particularly mean client, or even the hangover induced dreads, then the ‘I am about to be left alone with the baby for a full week’ dreads… and recently a sort of sadness that another weekend is over, time is going too fast… and having children only makes you realise that more. How do they grow so fast?!
As dreamily predicted last week I am indeed writing this from a sun lounger. Hoorah! We made it in one piece and the flight was actually pretty carefree. There was no screaming toddler running riot up and down the aisle, or crazy tantrums, it was (relatively) plain sailing and Vivienne actually found it to be exactly what it is…. a little adventure.
Can you feel how close we are to Summer… waking up to sunshine instantly puts me in a great mood. Nothing beats that warm feeling of the first rays of the day beating down on your face and making you feel, if only for a second, that you could just maybe be on a caribbean island. Then you pull the zipper up on your parka and shudder as you walk into a shady spot and the illusion is shattered… but we are on our way that’s for sure.
I hope everyone has had a fantastic Easter weekend, I’d love to tell you mine was all happy families and indulgence and whilst I confirm there was most certainly ‘indulgence’ unfortunately there was far less of the ‘happy families’ as we are most definitely in tantrum stage. And I think after the amazing few days with my husband relaxing and having a few date nights my daughter was suffering with some form of separation anxiety. I am now more exhausted than before the break… so this is my attempt to rev myself up again ready for the week ahead. Give me some outfit ideas to inspire me in the morning, inspiration to exercise, look after myself and my family, eat healthily, call the people who make me happy, work hard and most importantly for me after these past ‘tantrum-hell’ days… laugh heavily.
