Superdry summer


It’s no secret that the past few days have been much warmer than the rest of the year’s first quarter. A few more weeks then there’s no denying the arrival of summer. No matter how much we resist, it’s better to embrace the season (I’m sure many of you have been sweating it out, anyway, at the gym to get your bodies beach-ready.)

What better way to acknowledge our country’s forever-tropical weather than to don the appropraite florals and foliage?

I have never been one to deny comfort. T-shirt weather is t-shirt weather. Why beat around the palm fronds? Just don’t forget your denim jackets for the unpredictable cold, breezy, and possibly rainy summer nights.

Like my mother and her mother before her, I’ve always been a water-baby. Used to be a lot darker when I was a kid because I spent almost the entire day in the water, or by the beach, playing with the sand.

My boyfriend has booked a few trips for us at the end of the year, one of which involves the water, and – gasp – rapids!

The trips were meant to be a surprise (after much effort queuing online for discount fares), even if I’d really rather be stuck in the city. Fresh air and a change of scenery, though, should always be welcomed.

If you are planning any trips, don’t forget to pack your essentials, save up for shopping and site-seeing, and don’t forget your wits!
