Keeping stylish in the city heat


This weather is like marmite, you either love this humidity or hate it. Thank god my workplace has air con, but when it comes to choosing blog outfits in this heat I find it super restricting. There are so many denim jackets I have scheduled to shoot, but it was over 25 degrees last weekend and my tan would have probably have sweated off me and onto my brand new clothes (not a great combo!). This outfit was literally a last minute put together. It was too hot to wear a jacket, and too hot to wear a bodysuit and I wasn't in the mood to wear a skirt. When it comes to heat, I want to wear the floatiest, easiest clothing, yet I don't want to look boring or plain. 

So the first item I'm going to discuss are the Missguided shorts. I did wear these a couple of weeks back and they are probably my favourite shorts in my wardrobe. I just love the two tone block denim and the frayed hem gives it some detail. I genuinely struggle to find shorts that fit me. They are either too short, or they do not sit properly on the waist, or they are too small on the bum (I think we all have one of these struggles).  These tick most of the boxes (apart from being baggy around the waist) but it just gives me an excuse to wear a belt so I'm not complaining!

Now lets discuss this New Look kimono. If anyone is conscious about the top of the thighs then a long kimono is a winner! I also feel less exposed when I wear a long kimono with shorts, and I always find them really flattering. In this instance the floral print really makes this look extra summery! But a long kimono gives the illusion of slimmer legs because it covers the outside part of the leg and if you wear heels (like these New Look sandals for instance) then it helps to extend the legs too! I have to admit I haven't seen as many kimonos around compared to last year but I think they are a summer essential and it just goes to show that a simple print can really help transform a look. I definitely felt stylish in the city heat! 

Now I will quickly mention the Quay sunglasses. These have been my all time favourite pair this summer. The gradient really makes these different compared to the rest in my collection. Yes they were £50, but I'm sure I have got my monies worth out of these. I have worn them loads!

  1. Honestly love this kimono! I actually don't own any kimonos like this just short ones that look like silky short dressing gowns from missguided. Love this entire look though!
