Playtime July

July saw the welcome of a heatwave. Yes, a heatwave. And not like a measly 22 degrees British kind of heatwave, like a proper legit one - it was 33 degrees! 
So thinking of what you can wear on a packed commute in that heat is enough to make any girl's head tizzy. As little as possible basically if what you want on your body, and unless you have the confidence of Beyonce to rock up to work in a bikini or something of that ilk (which if you do, props on you and WHERE DO YOU WORK?), a strapless, short playsuit should do the trick. 
Bonus point if it's got palm trees printed all over it - it is summer after all! (and god knows they never last for long in ol' UK!)
Or if going all out on the skin front is too much for you, exposing your back will do wonders - c'mon, give the guy some space to breath. Whether it's in the form of a bright and cheerful Hawaiian-eaque floaty and floral cami top, or a long pastel maxi dress complete with side-splits and a lace-up back. Background of Kensignton gardens optional.
People seeing the back of you has never looked as stylish.
You know what else you do in the summer? Splash around in the ocean. And you know who else lives in the ocean? Mermaids of course. 
If you're sat in the office working and can't have a little paddle in the water, you'll be safe in the knowledge that you can look down at your watch and get lost in the aquatic gemstones that you picked up at Greenwich market. What a beaut.
Or y'know, there's the much less sensible option of a rainbow holographic t-shirt with a 90s throwback vibe - Sega Mega babe yo!
You know what else is not really that sensible? Going to dinner with your friends and having them greet you as Princess Jasmine because you've got oriental patterned culottes and an amethyst tiara on. Some say niche, I say AMAZING.
Also, for the longest time, I think culottes wouldn't flatter a 5 ft 5 girl with not the longest legs in the world. Oh how wrong I was. I'm sorry I ever doubted you my chic and comfy friend.
Or if that's just all too much to take in, let's take it back to basics. I'm talking denim and clean white threads (do kids even say that these days?) From ripped jeans and frayed, vintage dunga skirts covered in pockets, to holographic hi-tops and sheer, netted tops.
On a more serious note as well, can we just talk about how on point the message on this sweatshirt is? Not to mention just how darn comfy this bad boy also is.

Shirt too jazzy? It is a LITTLE jazzy...
(10 points to you if you get that reference)
Although I'm all about the patterns, they're usually floral and-or pastel, so autumnly colours and shimmery Morcoccan vibes? It's  like someone took the typical Amy and actually made her look like an adult. Topped off with a hat and plain denim or any sort and job's a good 'un.
Ok, serious time over, let normal scheduling resume! And that means initialled bags and multi-coloured pom-pom shoes - oh, which are also holographic by the way.
Couldn't be happier than when I'm in denim, with heart sunglasses on, with a pint and a hot dog in my hand. Life's fucking great ain't it?

Stay happy!
Until next time...
