Outfit: Outside and Inside






The UK is in the midst of some lovely weather at the moment and outside it is pretty hot. Like, stepping off the plane in a hot country hot. Inside? Not so much. My office has the most ferocious air conditioning and it is centrally controlled from another building (why?!) so there’s nothing I can do about it. Seriously, on the hottest two days this week it was like walking into a fridge after being outside. Which was refreshing for about two minutes, but you try sitting in a fridge for a prolonged period and your fingers will turn blue too. I wish I was kidding, but I did have blue finger ends yesterday. Fortunately there are picnic benches in the office garden, and there is wifi, and I have a laptop so when I need to warm up I can decamp to a sunny spot and thaw out.

Anyway, all this complaining is to say that I need layers for work. A vest/tank top layer for outside and a sweater (in July, I know!) and a jacket (that I didn’t photograph but it’s the bright orange one you’ve seen lots of times before) for inside. Gah.

Sweater – Forever 21
Tank – Zara (sale)
Jeans – Primark (gifted)
Necklace – vintage (it belonged to my grandma)
Flip flops – Reef (bought in Manly, Australia)
Belt – River Island

  1. And this is precisely why I hate air con! It's just so unnecessary in this country for air con to be set on arctic blast, even if it is 30+ degrees out. I'm thankful that we don't have air con at work - sure it was unbearable on Tuesday and particularly Weds when it reached 34 outside but two days a year I'm happy to suffer if it means the rest of the time we can open the windows for some cooler fresh air!

  2. Quite. I would just turn it off altogether and open all the windows if it were up to me.
