It was another scorcher this week in London, so once again I wore some of my summeriest clothes. On Tuesday my department at work had a picnic in Regent’s Park so I even got to rock my dungarees!
This week has been an absolute scorcher in London. In many places in the world temperatures in the upper 20’s wouldn’t be considered a heatwave but in the UK that definitely counts as high summer. I can’t stand being hot so I made sure I dressed accordingly. It was a great excuse to get my shorts out! I did make an effort to be a bit more conservative on Monday because I was invited to a “new starter breakfast” by our director from work at one of Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants so I wanted to make sure I looked the part.
It was a bit of a week of two halves in terms of weather so I started more covered up and then as it warmed up I needed cooler outfits. I am not the best at summer. I am just a ball of hayfever, sweat and spots. The hot weather always makes me a bit grumpy… that and the fact that although the work is really interesting in my new job I am struggling to make friends and some people really don’t seem to like me. Let’s hope next week is better.
It’s been three weeks since I posted one of these and it seems a bit much trying to go back and post everything I wore in that time so I have picked five highlights. As you’ll see the weather has been somewhat up and down in that time. Those of you who might have wondered, I did manage to find selfie mirror at my new office, although I am not completely sold on the lighting and there are definitely more women to use the bathroom so I have to pick my moments wisely.
This might be the last what I wore to work this week. This is my last few days in my current job before I start a new job next week. I am not sure what the bathroom situation is going to be like and whether I will be able to take pictures. I guess we’ll see.
After we were briefly led to believe spring might be coming when it warmed up on Saturday, we were soon proved very wrong. Winter came back full off mist and drizzle this week, which is reflected in the outfits I wore on the three days I went into work as well as the wildness of my hair. Please join me in wishing for better weather as I am getting sick of my winter clothes.
This week was absolutely freezing at the beginning so I was extremely grateful for the new boots I bought last week. My knee-high boots broke at the zip and they were on their last legs so I was lucky to bag a bargain in the sales. Happy days! Read more…
