Summer may be coming to an end but September is a month that usually holds the ideal weather. I for one love September, it see's the leaves changing colour and the nights starting to slowly draw back in, but if you are lucky..We usually see some sunshine.
If there is one thing that I will really miss about the Summer months, it's the mild weather and my Summer wardrobe. The United Kingdom may not be blessed with consistent good weather, but for the most part we can at least predict mild weather (even if the rain is falling outside..).
This summer was an extra special one for me, as it was the first summer in a very long time that I have felt comfortable in the skin that I am in. For the first time in many years I haven't felt the need to hide away under baggy clothes. When I cast my mind back to the Summer of 2014 or even back to 2013, I cringe. I re-call the girl who dreaded the warmer weather because she didn't want to have to get her legs (Or her thighs at least) out in the public eye. That Laura was more than happy to find a dress that didn't push her thigh chub into such a pronounced eyesore.
Just casting my mind back to those times makes me realise just how much I have grown over the last couple of years, and it paints a rather large smile on my face. Now for the first time in forever I have worn exactly what I want to, how I want to and when I want to. The rain may have been pounding down like there is no tomorrow, but if I wanted to wear my shorts, if I wanted to pair it with a crop top that I could only have admiringly glanced at before.. then that is exactly what I was going to do.
I can't even begin to explain how amazing it feels to feel comfortable with your body after such a long time, it has definitely ignited a new found passion for fashion, and for items of clothing that I would never have dreamed to wear a year ago.
My Summer Wardrobe
My Summer wardrobe has consisted of hot pants, dresses, maxi dresses and crop tops. It has meant that my entire Summer wardrobe had to be replaced as everything was far to big on me, of course that was a scenario that I happily embraced and for filled with little or... no complaints.
So here are a few of my Summer combinations from the Summer of 2015.
