Summer Dreaming.....MyStyle of dressing for the sunshine

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I've well and truly had enough of winter and it seems like it is set to last until Easter, oh my!! So to cheer myself up and remind me of what summer in the UK is,  here are some pics of me from previous summers-the first one was in Canterbury a couple of summers ago which was a lovely family midsummer mini holiday as we visited Whitstable and Herne Bay too:



I'm wearing a thrifted Gap gold lurex cardigan, Marks & Spencer grey skinny jeans, white broderie anglaise cami top and metallic summer sandals. Oh to feel the breeze between your toes I really can't wait to leave my thermal socks and boots behind.



This next picture is at my local park and typical of my summer uniform- sunglasses (note to self: must invest in some Ray Bans this summer!), 7 For All Mankind denim cut off shorts, thrifted Topshop satin floral kimono blouse which was only 50p from a local boot sale and my favourite accessory of all-barefeet!! 


This was taken in Brighton a couple of summers ago when we visited for lunch and then took a country drive back and stopped off at Denbies wine estate in Guildford. My other typical summer uniform is summer dresses and this one is a silk floral 20s style one by Traffic People which I got for my 40th birthday. My tan sandals were thrifted.

Well roll on Summer is all I can say-I can't wait to adopt my summer uniforms again and feel the breeze and summer sun on my shoulders-bliss!!

I've had quite enough of this cold weather too! Thank you for this dose of badly needed sunshine, you look so happy as well as stylish on your holiday - I'm waking up every morning thinking "when will it end?"

Vix said...

You look so lovely, especially in those shorts!
I can't believe how cold it is and the appalling forecast for the weekend. xxx

Lovely dose of Summer, thank you S! I think the shorts and kimono top is a very current look for this year.
I can't say anything because I have a lot of Winter gear so okay about the weather :-)

Fab pics! Winter feels as if it's lasted longer this year, maybe it's all the snow we've had. I can't bring to mind one year when it has snowed more since I moved to the UK in '94. At least the cherry blossom is starting to come out, surely spring is just around the corner? I really hope that is the case ;)
That pic of you in the shorts is amazing, you have a pair of perfect pins my dear...xXx

Oh if only! I'm usually much more of an Autumn girl as I like boots/jeans/nice coats and I don't really tan but even I am begging for some heat. I'm changing my allegiance to Springtime, if it ever arrives! Seriously fed up of this bloody cold and wet!
You look gorgeous in all these pics, especially your shorts and kimono top.
