Summertime is well and truly upon us and I'm sure we are all enjoying the uncomfortable sweaty mess we've become. With the sun, though, comes many fantastic ways to enjoy the heat and create some memories. Summer isn't just time for the sun to shine, it's time for us to shine too. It's a time to let go of any inhibitions and get that summer wardrobe that not only has you feeling great, but feeling cool as well. Here's a little rundown of what we here at Own Saviour do to make the most of a long, hot summer.
HAVE A GOOD BBQ
What do we love just as much as we love fashion? Food. A universally loved way of eating in summer is a BBQ. What better excuse to get together with your closest friends, crack out the Prosecco and eat more charcoal-burned food than your stomachs can handle.
ATTEND A FESTIVAL
Singing along as your favourite bands perform classics from their old albums is a must in the summertime. Bringing back memories of exes and fashion faux-pas. We still haven't forgiven them or ourselves!
DON'T PLAY BY THE RULES
It's damn hot outside and all fashion rules go out of the window. Wear what you want and wear it with confidence - you'll look like a beaut with that vibe. Life is too short and the temperature is too high not to wear what makes you feel great and comfortable.
GO ON HOLIDAY
Club Tropicana drinks are free, if you go all inclusive. If not, somewhere cheap and cheerful will do. As long the weather is hot, you can wear your best bikinis, and the booze is flowing. You might want to do a few excursions, but the chances are you'll wake up in the afternoon, hungover, and ready to do it all again.
TAKE THE INITIATIVE
Every summer is going to be the best yet and, somehow, we still end up with regrets over what we didn't do at the end of the season. This year, time waits for no (wo)man. If you want to do something or go somewhere, rally the troops instead of waiting for somebody else to suggest it. Can't find a buddy to take along for the ride? Go it alone and enjoy your own company!
GO ON A BIKE RIDE
Now, it may be 30 degrees celsius outside, so we aren't talking any Tour de France style bike rides, but a leisurely cycle through the countryside to increase the heart rate and get the endorphins rushing can give you that feel good factor. And you can do a little cow spotting along the way.
