Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

Why I love Raining Day

I’m bored with Summer and with this heat. Now you are all yelling at your screen telling me I’m mad! How dare I hate this glorious weather? I already had one woman mention to me that I need my head checked (how charming!). Surely no one could ever possibly be bored with summer? Well summer scrooge is here again and yes I am bored with summer. I’m bored with how this season is dragging on and on and on, how it’s just dry heatwave after heatwave. I’m fed up of sticky hot nights and days, and also of the stupid big flies that keep flying around my place – buzz off! I find myself longing for September and autumn weather, I find myself day-dream about crunchy leaves and long cooler (temperature wise) evenings and drinking hot chocolate.

More than anything, I find myself longing for a nice rainy day. I really do love raining days. And no I’m not pessimistic just because I love raining days, I’m not filled with dark gloomy clouds or negative thinking in my life.

I once went to a talk that Christopher Bailey, the head of Burberry, was giving and within the talk he mentions how British rain can be really romantic and so refreshing to the soul. I sort of feel that same sentiment, there is something wonderful with British rain and how once it rains, I (and maybe you as well) feel more refreshed within oneself. What I mean by that, the air is a lot clearer and have this wonderful smell to it. I find myself able to breathe a lot easily – my nose isn’t all blocked up and I don’t sneeze due to the pollen.  I love how clear the air is once it rains and I do love how it has that fresh feeling to it.

Why I Love Raining Days

 

I love a big thunder-storm with the heavy rain and thundering clouds, I love watching a cloud burst open after a big thunderclap and mad heavy rain commence. I love the sound it makes on my window and how when it drops it leaves big puddles on the grounds.

I even love walking in the rain, I have a big clear umbrella (very similar to the one the Queen uses) and it’s great fun to use. I love putting on my boots and – even at my age – stepping into puddles. I love watching people dive bomb into a shop once it start raining, naah, I’ll be out in it with my umbrella walking to my destination.  I only ever once in recent memory got soaked to the skin and that was my fault more than anything. But the great thing is you can get home, take off your wet clothes and jump into a warm shower and put on fresh clothes.

Raining days let me be bit of a cloud observer, I love watching dark clouds loom over me and seeing puffed up Cumulonimbus clouds stretched over the sky. I love watching to see what it would turn into and how it can be a fairly bright day one moment to a dark miserable (some would call gloomy) day the next.

My niece is a fan of raining days as she love running and jumping into a big puddle and soaking herself. It’s a fun activity for a child and she also like to look for slugs and worms after it rain as well.

But the best thing about raining day, more than anything else – is the chance to see a rainbow:

Why I love Raining Day

So yes folks, I love raining days and I have to ask who else love raining days. Surely I can’t be the only one as then I really would need my head checked.

Why I love Raining Day

A picture I capture after it has been raining and I thought that was really cool – a heart-shaped rain drop on a window.

    Love it! Autumn is my favourite season with all the colours of the leaves and the sunsets and the hot chocolate! I’ve always loved rain and storms, I’m always out in them. I used to see it as a therapy cleansing of a sort. I’d put on some music and get soaked willingly and i’d always feel better after! Love the picture with the heart shaped raindrop!

    I’m right there with you. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer too; going to the lake, adventures, flower fields, etc. I do – but I also love fall, and the crisp air, smell of apples and hot cider. I love hiking and the way the lake “changes” it’s appearance from cool and welcoming to a little edgier and less soft. And how a rainy day can leave you with nothing to do but relax instead of the daily hustle and go, go, go.

    Though in a strange twist, my distaste for all the hot, sticky, miserable weather – I was optimistic about clear skies for the meteor shower, and this front showed up (of course! lol)
    But I am still so excited for autumn, it is my favorite, and I feel your sentiments for rainy days as well!

    Every Summer, I get fed up with heat and I start looking forward to being in Autumn, drinking hot chocolates under a blanket, getting a new wardrobe etc. And every Winter… The opposite happens. I think it’s a good thing that we have seasons and variety because I get sick of everything quickly. But to be honest, I don’t like rainy days. I need bright light to feel cheerful and if the weather is gloomy for to long I feel depressed.

    I sometimes like rainy days as well, perfect time to sit inside and be productive (or watch Netflix). We have a lot of them in Norway, so sometimes it gets a bit too much. Especially during winter, when it’s dark and rainy for days on end.

  • Sam | North East Family Fun

    I know what you mean – it’s lush walking in the rain, taking the kids out to jump in puddles or a cold shower during a hot day. I DO NOT like rain on the school run though !

    I am a fan of Summer rains, others not so much. Let me explain, Summer rain is so romantic, it’s strong, it last short, it helps my veggies do grow, my flowers instantly bloom after and you see life just in front you. And it’s refreshing, having a few cooler days in the Summer torment, while Autumn rain is just cold, and it’s only good if your inside, watching movies and drinking hot chocolate. But, you can’t study at all, it makes you all sleepy and just want to stay forever in your cozy bed.

    We get a lot of rainy days in Florida during the summer, which is hurricane season. It rains for 10-15 minutes, stops and then is it hot and humid. So most of our rain doesn’t stay long.

    what I love about rainy days, is the cool atmosphere, the sound of rain drops on the roof, our family all inside, because of avoiding to be wet.. this is so nostalgic! although in my younger years, playing in the rain is so AWESOME ..but I prefer watching kids playing now, I am too big now to play with them… Lol!

    You’re not the only one, I absolutely adore the rain! I like to sit on my front porch on an evening whenever it’s raining and simply watch it fall, I love Fall too! Heat is great, when it isn’t that awful sticky heat of which makes you not want to do anything or even move!
