Anyone else mourning the end of the heatwave? We had loads of warm weather activities planned in, not to mention tiny outfits to wear – and it’s not even the official start of the summer holidays yet!! Gahhh, come back sun! With schools breaking up in the next couple of weeks and many students frantically finishing off those dreaded assignments – we thought now’s the time to put together a guide to guarantee this summer will be the BEST! Here goes…
BOOK A HOLIDAY
It goes without saying that every summer should involve a sun drenched break! Whether you’ve stockpiled your holiday allowance for three weeks in beautiful Bali, or are hopping across to sunny Spain – a new beach-ready outfit is ESSENTIAL. For us, holidays mean colour galore which is why our go-to beachwear brand is Figleaves. This tie-dye masterpiece is going to lot HOT when you’re poolside, plus with your fave pair of denim cut-offs, you’ve got yourself a solid festival look right there. If it’s a bit too out there for you, throw on a classic white shirt – perfect for offsetting your tan. Time for accessories! Whether you’re sinking sangrias in the sun or strolling in the park – this season’s standout accessory has got to be on your arm – cue the straw bag. HELLO fave newest addition to our wardrobe! Finishing off with a lil’ metallic (because we’re total magpies), we suggest slipping on a pair of gold Havaianas not to mention a smattering of jewellery if hitting a beach club is in your itinerary – voila!
HIT A ROOFTOP BAR
Catching up with friends is our next fave way to spend sunny days, so let’s add a rooftop bar to the mix! Why not get a trip to big smoke in the diary for you and your besties? Pergola On The Roof is a new addition to the bustling bars of London, and is ONLY open until October meaning you CAN’T miss out! It’s completely free to enter and serves a YUM aperol spritz – however booking in advance will guarantee you’re straight in there – no queueing required and more drinking time, winner! Top tip: avoid on a windy day…
Because who doesn’t love a festival?! We know Glastonbury happened just last week but with loaaaads still to get in the diary, we guarantee there’s one you’ll love! If a music fest isn’t up your street and you’re a true foodie at heart, a food festival should be TOP of your list! The BIG Festival in the Cotswolds is the perfect place to combine families and food. Whichever takes your fancy, you’re obvioussssly going to need a new outfit – hello, Superdry! 👇
EAT ALL THE ICE CREAM
Us Brits are guilty of reaching for ANYTHING that’ll cool us down when the weather hots up – and what better way than ice cream?! The summer months are the only time it’s acceptable to reach for the icy GOODNESS at every chance you get, and we’re fully embracing it! The work fridge is packed full with Magnum’s, ice poles are at the ready, and the 2 for £4 Ben & Jerry’s offer is going down a TREAT. Summer body, whaaaat?
Now we’ve given you the ideas, it’s time to round up the troops and get them in the diary – ENJOY! ☀️
