I imagine if Wednesday Addams went into her local charity shop looking for a summer outfit, she would emerge with something not to dissimilar to my outfit when attempting to dress for the increased temperature last weekend. Whilst the rest of the country wore smock dresses, shorts and skirts beautifully, I, once again, looked into my wardrobe wondering how on earth I have survived the slightly warmer weather in previous years. Always being the gal to sit in the patch of shade to avoid an excessive sweaty situation, I put on a slightly-floatier-than-usual but entirely second-hand outfit last weekend. With the skirt and shirt being from Oxfam, the Dr Martens were an eBay purchase and the top was borrowed from my lovely sister.
As for dressing for the rest of summer, I’m thinking of going into hibernation until the warmer spell is over. Or as Greenday put it, just ‘wake me up when September ends’. I’ll be well ready and rested with an appropriate wardrobe for the months of all things toffee apples, sparklers and bonfires.
