It’s officially Summer. Unofficially, it’s been summer for a while, at least where I live.
Being out under direct sunlight at noon feels like I’m being baked. For the first time in my life, I bough a 50 SPF lotion. I like being a little tanned and I went to the pool for that but tanning on the street while waiting for the light to turn green is not really my kind of ‘fun under the sun’. Driving is not an option either. I don’t know the city well enough to be driving and, even if I did, being stuck in traffic is horrible. So I’m happy with my kick-ass lotion because it smells nice and it leaves the skin very smooth.
Next on my anti-baking on the streets list was a comfortable/chic outfit. I wanted something light, something that lets the skin breath, an outfit suitable for different activities like shopping and carrying the heavy shopping bags or for a last minute rendez-vous. Those shorts are so cute and they can be dressed up or down. I know I’m going to wear them all summer.
And it’s not summer without bohemian accessories like these fabulous rings I got from Bershka, that bracelet that was a gift from my best friend or the lovely and practical cotton bag.
I’ll leave you now with a song that might become my summer’s soundtrack. Or yours 🙂
