Well it’s high summer, and what a wonderful time of the year. Plenty of long sunny days, it’s hot outside and there’s nothing more wonderful than enjoying a lazy sunny afternoon drinking a cool cocktail.
Even in London, you can have a very enjoyable summer. All over the city urban beaches have sprung up, there are some fantastic rooftop bars across the capital, lidos are open early til late and if that’s not enough for you, just hop on a plane to the continent! While my job doesn’t allow me to travel abroad right now, I’ve found some really gorgeous places to explore this summer.
One of them is this gorgeous garden and Pergola north of Hampstead Heath, with columns, climbing ivy and some wonderfully fragrant flowers. I’ve been meaning to do a shoot here for ages, and I finally managed to do it last month, the result of which you can see below.
Stripes, while rather common in the summer months was a particularly big trend for spring/summer 2015 and these River Island palazzo pants are just fantastic! Pair them with this wide-brimmed hat from H&M and you’ve got a perfect beachwear outfit.
