Well there is nothing like Monday arriving and bringing the heat to the start of a new week – phew it’s a scorcher out there! No complaining mind, you know how us Brits are never quite happy with the weather conditions here; too hot, too cold, too windy! But with the high temperatures set to soar (and stay) it’s not much fun when it comes to dressing for the hot weather – never fear though, Monday Musings is here!
Dressing for the heat and not looking like you should be by the pool or the beach is definitely a tough one, but whether you’re working or playing the trick to looking and staying cool in a heatwave is lightweight fabrics. I’ve blogged before about my love for linen this season, click here if you want to revisit that post, but the other lifesaver when it comes to summer style is cotton.
The high street is ablaze with mid-season sales which means it’s the perfect time to add some last minute holiday must-haves to your suitcase, or update you summer work wardrobe. But with Zara currently showing just over 800 dresses (yes 800!) in the sale online that’s enough to get even the savviest of shoppers sweating. I’ve had a quick scour through the sales and found some of my favourite linen and cotton pieces, but be quick because the heat does crazy things to people and these bargains won’t hang around for long!
