The Last Summer Day

We’ve been pretty lucky in England this year. Our summers normally consist of one or two weeks of good weather somewhere in July, and a few good days in September, surrounded by grey overcast days. This year though, we’ve had a good smattering of hot days from May through to mid September, so we’ve been tricked into thinking we’ve had a longer Summer!
The downside is that last week when I was in London doing our first moving day with the van, it was bloody boiling. One of the days hit 34 degrees which is practically unheard of for London, never mind in September.
It meant that my summer wardrobe had one last hurrah when I skipped out on packing to go meet Katy for a quick lunch!
 The best thing about being friends with bloggers is having a built in outfit photographer! I roped the wonderful Katy into snapping these for me, hopefully you can’t see the fine layer of sweat I’m covered in – I know, glamorous.
I finally found an A-Line denim skirt that works for me, after months of searching! I was pretty picky, I wanted buttons and pockets, plus because I’m so tall I didn’t want it to be too short. After so long searching, I eventually found one in Primark of all places, for the bargain price of £8!
I paired it with one of my favourite breton tops – this slouchy Zara number is so amazing I wish I’d picked up another one, some super comfy Primark sandals, and my Rebecca Minkoff handbag. I love the mix of breton stripes and a bold lip, this one is MAC All Fired Up and it’s one of my favourites. Do you see a theme here? It’s all my favourites!
Katy and I hate to break with tradition, so we ended up at Flat Iron for lunch. We had 15 minutes to kill before our table was ready, so we spent those minutes exploring the side streets of our favourite cities. Katy was running around like a mad woman waiting for the perfect person to walk past the pretty painted doors, whilst I found myself in awe of, well, all of it. I’m certainly going to miss this city!
Big thanks to Katy for the outfit snaps!
