Wow! What a long and beautiful summer we’ve had. I just love or I guess I need to say loved it. It is my favorite time of the year. The sun is shining so many hours a day and you just need to wear a t-shirt and jeans to step out of your home. You don’t need to think about getting cold. Many people are spending their spare time at the lake or in the cafés or just strolling in the streets and enjoying dinner or a delicious ice cream.
It’s one of those days – you are sleepy and hanging around in your bed. The sunrays tickle you and put a smile on your face. You can get up highly motivated and in a good mood. Because it is promised to get a really beautiful summer day.
Yes, I am a sun worshiper – even a lot. This was not always the case. Far from it! As a child I was pretty afraid of the sun. I tried to avoid the sun either at home or on vacation almost like the sunrays would hurt my sensible skin. You can ask my mother if you want, what torture she had with me. She, the one who wanted to enjoy the sun as much as possible, had always searched for shadow because of me, applied sunscreen with protection factor 50 and worried about carrying a hat and t-shirt.
Summer Dream - Trend color of the year: rose quartz...
Well, summer is hiding this year for a long time already. Thank god, the sun is a little out at least today. Reason enough to come into summer mood 2016 on the fashion side. And this year it is all about fresh and bright colors, so at least the outfits are shining if the sun doesn’t play the game.
Finally the sun is back! We didn’t have the opportunity to enjoy a lot of sun this year’s spring time. But if there are slight sunrays I am always in the mood to jump out of my house and soak up the sun as much as possible. The warmth of the sun and its impact shouldn’t be underestimated. I can feel that people in the street are happier and in a much more positive mood than on rainy days. They are even smiling to each other sometimes and this even in Zurich. ;)
