It’s always quite strange going from winter wear to summer wear, when a boiling hot day springs itself upon us, I always feel completely unprepared, apart from having no tan, I feel like I’m walking around in my underwear when wearing a pair of shorts. Some relaxed not so “bare” ensembles to ease you into spring. Create a wardrobe that you can easily mix and match that won’t only make daily dressing a whole lot easier, but also packing for weekends away. Where you see a scarf, try something new and wear it on your head like a turban à la Mira Duma sported rather frequently this summer. As always click on links to shop direct!
Its always around this time of year (or sometimes earlier) that we start discussing where to go for our summer holidays. It used to be quite easy but now with a little one its definitely changed things drastically. We have to think of child friendly locations, time zones, flight duration, disease contracting areas (e.g Malaria) and so on…
We will be starting off this year by going somewhere very local. We can drive, we will be in the same time zone and we can take along our home comforts. Norfolk. Well its not local as such to London but it’s in the UK. We have booked in here at The Wiverton Bell. It looks deliciously cosy and homely and I’m super excited! Norfolk has the most beautiful coastline, you would never think you were in the UK if the weather is kind to you 😉
Further afield, other coastal destinations which we have been longing to get to are Sri Lanka and Tulum in Mexico (the latter is actually more me). My husband is already heading to Montana in August so I doubt we will get in two US trips this year. In fact we definitely will not, so there goes my destination vacation but we hoping to squeeze in a Europe trip. We both fell in love with Ibiza last year but we will probably try something new, although I could easily make it an annual holiday.
Below are our a couple of holiday pics from some of the Coastal getaways we have been to over the last couple of years.
If you ever get a chance to visit South Africa, make sure you get to the Eastern Cape for all its beauty. The best way to get there is to fly to Cape Town and take a drive through the scenic route known as the Garden Route.
Yes that’s correct, the topic is rainy days. And yes I have arrived in South Africa…. We are thrilled to be here and see our family again however there is one “but”…..its raining cats and dogs! I simply couldnt believe it, all I have been hearing for the last three months since our last visit is how beautiful the weather has been, my mom telling me how gorgeous our sparkling pool is looking and its calling for us, and we couldn’t wait to escape the UK rain. The irony is, in London this weekend the temperature has reached 16 degrees and is beautifully sunny and warm and here in South Africa we are wearing jeans and jackets in the pouring rain. Did I pack correctly? Of course not. Anyway it is still summer, its not cold and its definitely going to clear this week at some point (fingers and toes crossed).
So if it is raining wherever you are in the world, here is some rainy weather wear for inspiration.
