Heatwaves in London


Happy Monday loves!

If you live in London or have ever visited the city you’ll know that summer doesn’t really exist here. Our summers average between 18-21c with daily showers so when the city was submersed in a heatwave last week I was over the moon! There’s nothing I love more than a good dose of vitamin D, plus everyone generally appears to be happier and spirits lifted during good weather. It felt like I was back in Istanbul, I doubt I’ll be travelling again for the rest of the year so I hope this beautiful weather continues in London.


The best part is I actually get to explore my summer wardrobe for once (a section that is neglected for most of the year). Today I’m wearing this beautiful hi-low cut floral dress from Quiz Clothing. As you can see, it’s definitely a statement piece, perfect for weddings, Christenings, garden parties etc. I paired it with my gorgeous new strappy sandals from Just Fab, an online store I’ve heard so much about over the past few years. For just £35 per month you have access to a huge range of stylish shoes and handbags and may I add these shoes are insanely comfortable! Perfect for running around on a hot summer’s day.

Have you experienced a heatwave in your city yet?
