Five things you need to own NOW

Feeling hot, hot, hot on the is week’s Gimme 5! There’s only one thing for it and that’s to surrender yourself and your wardrobe to the heat wave, here’s how.

the tee

A stripy cotton tee is the cornerstone of many a gal’s wardrobe. If something is in such heavy rotation though it really is worth spending some money if you can. This soft cotton top from Lucy Nagle is made from a super soft cotton yarn and will wash and wash and wash.

the shorts

Dressing for the sun without forgoing your own innate fashion sense can sometimes be tricky. These shorts from Penneys (where else) with their pearl detailing are just fab.

the sunscreen

The most IMPORTANT thing to wear in this weather is obviously lashings and lashings of factor. If you don’t like the icky feeling of sticky lotions then DO NOT go further than Kiehls. Their super fluid is a game changer.
