Can you keep a secret, my monochromatic friend?

- Madagascar (2005).

UK Summertime

Was today. That's it, it's all over now. 

So today was said to peak at around 22 degrees, after the past couple months I have to say I had my doubts but HAAAAAYY there sunshine! Finally kept a promise, eh?

As happy as the sun makes me, there are downsides. Mainly in Scotland this downside being 'Taps aff 20.' Roughly, this translates to “lets all roam wild and topless once the thermometer tips 20C.”

Now if you’re a Gosling lookalike, don’t hold back there pal, whip it off and give us all a good perv...
if you’re a Danny DeVito dead ringer, can we think twice?

Turns out the rules of 'Taps aff 20' mean that once the temperature meets 20 degrees everyone is free to let it all hang loose. I’m talking moobs. 

Moobs, everywhere.

To avoid this situation (honestly I never know where to look in Dundee on sunny days) my friend and I took a wander to a nearby nature reserve (read: big pond) and I jumped at the chance to finally have a few outfit shots in natural, sunny daylight…

top: topshop     shades: primark     jeans: topshop     shoes: ...eh, old.

Breton stripes never get old, right? Monochrome is massive right now (it never leaves) and red lips never go out of style. Totally keeping up with them trendz.

I can't quite believe how clear this water is!

lipstick: kate moss for rimmel, 007     rings: new look     second chin: all my own

shades: primark     bag: charity shop

Damn ducks were after my sarnie (i shared, i'm nice like that).

Of course, no sunny afternoon is complete without spending some time with my main man, Alf.

Hope you all made the most of British summertime!
