The Heatwave

Hands up if you’re loving the little UK heatwave we got goin’ on right now? *raises own hand*. Good. Hands up if you love it but you just can’t stand having to cloth yourself? *raises own hand* Not just me? Excellent. Recently I’ve been opting for barely there fabrics and loose fits to keep me cool (like a cucumber, oh yeahhh) during the day. Being stuck inside because you have to work is torturous enough without overheating/sweating it out at the same time, so I’ve been relying on camis and loose shorts a lot! One of my favourite pairs come courtesy of the lovely guys at Motel. Their orange floral print shorts are currently my warm weekend companions for mine and Joshs trips to the park with the pup, but with a lightweight shoulder covering black top this could totally be office appropriate too (depending on your office of course).

Not only did motel send me these lovely shorts, but they also sent me some lovely NYX cosmetics* goodies too. Their shine killer and Dewy Finish Setting Spray have become favourites of mine on very hot days. I’m still forever dying to get my hands on their Powder Blush in Taupe – one of those ones that everyone loves but no one can ever get their hands on. So I might have to make an order once the opportunity arises.

But anyway, here’s what I wore…

Cami: ASOS (similar here)

Shorts: Motel*

Shoes: Birkenstocks

Bag: Topshop (similar here)

    Absolutely love those shorts! I seem to really like orange at the moment – it's a colour I never would have thought I would want to wear. I wear a lot of loose fit shorts they're perfect for this heatwave weather.

    The shorts are so cute! The NYX primer is something I've had my eyes on for awhile now, I'm glad to hear you like it! Taupe is a blush I'm constantly searching for and since NYX is relatively new to my country the display is often missing their most notable products.
