On our holiday to Cornwall we visited Lands End – the most southerly point in England – and the sun was absolutely beating down. I kept cool in my floral cotton trousers (already seen this summer here and here) and flower cut-out sandals… and yes, you guessed it: I ended up with a flower-shaped tan on my feet. No amount of sunblock was going to prevent that happening!
Thankfully I took my neon pom pom scarf from La Redoute as a cover up to protect my shoulders otherwise they would have really suffered (they still caught the sun despite me keeping the scarf draped around me for much of the time). I was one of the few people to have covered up in the blazing sun; the wind by the coast is unforgiving and deceitful – as always in the UK we saw some really sore lobster-coloured people..!
Do people take care in the sun in your part of the world, or do they make like the British and think that the sun isn’t strong if there’s a cool wind? Please tell me you practice safe sun…!
I mustn’t forget to mention my lovely personalised initial necklace from oNecklace: tomorrow you can win your own (in gold or silver, your choice) in my giveaway, so don’t forget to come back for that!
