One thing I love about travelling on public transport is how you can have a lot of quality time observing different people. Sometimes you overhear interesting conversations. I was on the bus from the city centre this weekend and I couldn’t help hearing two ladies discussing how exciting it was that winter is close. I have to agree, there is something so cosy about winter. The evenings filled with Netflix bingeing, blanket cuddling in front of the fire and drinking hot chocolate with a lot of marshmallows yet I still love summer. I was born in a hot climate and I find everything smiles during summer. People are much happier and relaxed when the sun shines. Most of all, I personally find choosing summer clothes to wear so easy and so much fun.
This summer’s collection was very interesting with a lot bold colours from royal blues, greens, yellows to reds and pinks combination. I was anticipating on seeing burst of colours in the city of Dublin but whatever the Irish people did wrong to the weather gods, I can count the ‘hot’ days we had the whole summer on one hand! When everywhere else people were basking in sunshine, we were looking up the skies every second for just a glimpse of sun and some warmth. The summer wardrobe collection I was looking forward to wearing was just hanging on the other side of the closet feeling neglected. Fortunately, there were few warm days which I timed very well so that I could at least wear one or two outfits from my summer collection.
As summer comes to an end in two weeks’ time, I would advise you not to give away your 2015 summer collection just yet, who knows the ‘weather gods’ may be in good form next year. One great things about not wearing something all the time is it feels new whenever you put it on.
So, while other people are walking around looking the same with the 2016 summer collection, we will be still rocking our last year colours. Different is beautiful and we will be saving a lot of money too!
