The good old British weather we all like to whinge about has failed to deliver this week. Instead we are all basking in the sunshine.
Living by the sea, it’s usually a lot cooler but that usually means more
numpties people forget that there is actually a big bright burning thing beaming down upon them.
I’ve seen it already this week. People telling me they sat out all day in the sun and oh look now their skin is a brighter shade of crimson. It makes me cringe to look at the marks where their little itsy bitsy clothing once was.
I’m no angel, I’ve had my share of sunburn. But I like to think these days I’m a bit more conscious of the burning skin factor.
Cardigans have become my best friend. I have them in every colour, so even on the hottest days I will wear a thin one in order to cover up. Much better than having to cover my skin in the thick greasy factor 30.
And if you can’t bear to wear a cardigan, I find large scarves/shawls are fab for draping over my shoulders for protection.
There are lots of cool pretty umbrellas out there these days which can double up as a sun parasol. So really you have no excuse.
Apart from that, hope you’re loving the sunny weather
