There is a heat-wave in London currently. Not a cushy 23 degrees chill-in-the-sun-with-a pint type heatwave. We are talking 26 degrees melt-on-the-floor-consider-suicide heatwave. Especially if you have a low tolerance like me. I had the day off work which was glorious, so went into central London to spend all that money I don't have. Mission: Wear as little as possible without being mistaken for a Street Walker.
The go-to was a crop, obviously. Nothing black. (Also obvious.) This crop was a Topshop basic from last year but they have similar (actually nicer IMO) ones in stock this season. Paired them with these tailored shorts from Miss Selfridge. Denim would be too heavy for the heat I think, and these are high enough to hide my midriff, which I'm never keen to parade. Sandals are Birkenstock rip-offs from Primarni, the perfect solution if you can't decide whether to bend for the trend or not. Ugly? Yes. Comfortable? So much comfort. Solution = Primarni. Always Primarni.
I added my beloved orange clutch, and then freaked out that the outfit looked too classy for me. So I threw in some tacky jewellery and was good to go.
Sunnies were a gift from my girl Daisy, the bracelet is Primarni, the watch is Timex. My 'hood bitch' hoops were from New Look a while back, originally purchased for a 90s themed party but they've stuck around for when I need to spice an outfit up. My tattoo was done by Rebecca Vincent at Circle London. I always think it looks good with some chunky gold costume jewellery.
