I don't know where you live, but where I live (in Australia) summer is only days away (but it's pretty much been hot enough for the last couple of weeks anyway). Because I get cold so easily in the winter and autumn months I think I find summer to be the most comfortable. Though, my mother would probably argue that it's because my thermostat is broken. I thought I would share some of the things I might be doing (or dreaming of doing) this summer.
I think I'd like to be wearing some cute, short sundresses. Actually anything that isn't too heavy or long and probably in a breathable material. Cute skirts and tank tops, cute t-shirts and shorts. Whatever it is, it has to be cute!
I like the idea of wearing sandals or fun coloured flats for summer.
I'm still umm-ing and ahh-ing about purchasing a retro two piece swim-suit. something nautical with stripes on it maybe? I don't spend much time at the beach though, so I'm not sure that it's a good idea.
Wearing headscarves is fun and I've got a whole collection of polka-dots and other prints that I hope to wear.
I know that I'm always on about vintage sunglasses, but summer is when I need them the most! Even though I've probably got enough pairs of shades, my eyes keep drifting to the more outrageous shapes "butterfly" shapes (not an actual butterfly btw), John Lennon glasses (the ones with coloured lenses), heart-shaped glasses (it's Lana Del Rey's fault), And, the most outrageous lip sunglasses (not sure if I'd be game enough to wear them in public though).
I love this pearly effect eye shadow look. I'm really into glitter and shimmer make-up at the moment. Anything that gleams in the sun! I'm also pretty interested in anything that's bright like red lipstick or bright blue nail polish. I know it's the wrong weather to get interested in beauty products (hello sweat!), but I can't seem to help it. I'm putting on lots of sunscreen too, because the sun here is harsh and I only have to be in the sun for a couple of minutes to develop a weird tan-line.
I'm also really into perfume at the moment and I'm hoping to purchase some new fuity or white-floral scents.
I really like milkshakes and other cold drinks in summer. I have this chocolate flavoured coffee at the moment which tastes really good in a milkshake.
I like escaping to the aircon (or enjoying the afternoon breeze) while reading a good book. I think I'm due to start enjoying some of my contemporary YA books and some sequels to my favourite dystopian and fantasy series.
I will probably day-dream about mermaids at some point. I've got the Mako Mermaids season 1 sitting on the TV cupboard and I might be re-watching Aquamarine again. I think I will also enjoy watching a few nineties and eighties teen movies.
I will be listening to some of my new records, buying a few more itunes songs and attempting a few more covers on my guitar. I will be listening to Lana Del Rey as usual and will probably insert a bit more NoDoubt and OutKast into my summer playlist than usual.
What are you planning for summer?
