My post has been delayed today as I have been once more distracted with something none literature based! As you may well know from previous over-excited posts, I am going on proper summer holiday this year- Vegas Baby! And as much as I am soooooo ridiculously excited about my hols, I am starting to feel a little downhearted – I have no summer wardrobe.
I like my winter woolies and clothes I can layer. I am very much a cold weather person and my outfits suggest the same. I will automatically opt for the darker colours and the thicker fabrics because they make me feel cosy and secure. I do have plenty light skirts that match these wintery garments, but what do I wear in the blistering desert heat of an American July? I have dug through my wardrobe to unearth a few pieces that I can safely wear in public (namely flip-flops) but I am sadly lacking in suitable summer garb. Yes I have the staple Tesco vest tops, but they are not very becoming!
I am also on a budget. As you may have guessed! The not having a full time job thing has something of an impact on the finances available for frivolous clothes buying – I am not a shopper! This is all fine, I don’t like spending much on clothes. But part of the problem with looking at the cheaper shops, the Primarks, H&Ms and Supermarkets etc, is that they do not fit particularly well. So you find me with a dual dilemma. Firstly, I have no idea where to start with picking out items to pad out my summer wardrobe, and secondly I have serious difficulty finding clothes that fit in a budget range. If anyone out there has a solution to one or both of the above issues, then please please please, drop me a comment and help the cause.
Otherwise, I may be walking the Vegas Strip in a roll neck – dress – leggings combo and sweating to death! (The dress cannot be worn without the other items, I have experimented this afternoon!).
