International Readers, there are hardly words to describe quite how delighted, charmed and elated us Brits are at finally having a summer. Five whole days of sunshine!
And yet, we harbour a guilty secret. We’re not very good in the heat. I have already witnessed breathtaking examples of full-frontal sunburn. We immediately get heat rash, shiny faces and crescents of sweat in our arm pits. That being said, I’ve delighted in seeing London fashion come out to play. Never have commutes been so fashion-forward.
But when I get home, I want to be comfortable. This evening, I shut the front door, ran upstairs and climbed into shorts and the above top. Oh, and I took my bra off.
I have the dubious advantage of being single right now. Only my dog, Ella, witnesses my private wardrobe and she hasn’t howled with horror – yet. But am I alone in this risible costume of comfort? Maybe I’m the only person who, in the privacy of her own home, employs a wardrobe that would be scandalous in the street.
Do you have Home Clothes? An outfit that makes you relax in the heat? Or is it just me?
