It's hard to imagine that just a few days ago, London was fully in the throes of blazing, glorious sunshine. I was dousing myself in factor 50, hiding under wide brim hats, and shooting blog content convinced we were now at the very start of summer. How wrong I was! Today it's pouring with rain, I'm writing this in my PJs with an awful cold and couldn't be further away from that beautiful, balmy happiness which spring often brings. But I'm working on the assumption that everything is better with dinosaurs, so say hello to Dippy and today's blog post.

This isn't the first dinosaur related post which I've brought to the blog. I'm a sucker for things which are floral or dino related, so this Jurassic World t-shirt from H&M was a total no brainer. Perfect tucked into a skirt, skinny jeans or denim cut offs, it's going to be a summer staple for when the nerd feeling is strong.

I really need to talk about this amazing dinosaur necklace which I picked up from Ali Express. It's clearly meant to be a dupe of the incredible giant dinosaur necklace from Tatty Devine, but is totally a trace of the Jurassic Park dino logo. Of course I'd love to have the TD original, and really hope to one day - but with a £110 price tag, #freelancelife dictates that it's just not a possibility right now and as a second best offering it's completely amazing. AND less than the price of a cup of coffee!

I also want to mention this Straw Sun Visor from H&M. For this large headed, big haired sun avoider, it's been an utter revelation! I tend to spend sunny days with straw hats pinned into my hair at an angle to stop them from flying off, but the adjustable velcro strip and hook and loop fastening means it's so much easier to get a good fit, and it adjusts to a wide variety of hairstyles.

Until next time,
