And it got me thinking, why do we love summer so much and what is it that summer says to you (which was bloody good timing as Ugg contacted me in regards to their Summer Says campaign and it was the quickest yes please I’ll be involved as I’m not sure I’ve ever had such a relevant and appropriate campaign idea) and I decided that Summer says a lot things. Summer says BBQ’s with family and friends, it says Almond magnum ice creams everyday without being even a little bit guilty, it says pretty makeup and pastel nail polishes and the tans that dreams are made of. But mainly, mainly for me it says travel.
Now, you know by now that travel is definitely not exclusive to Summer but it is a time of year that I specifically put aside some time to expand my travel portfolio - can we take a moment to appreciate the most pretentious phrase that I’ve ever used on my blog - and one place that I’ve had on my list of travel destinations (I genuinely have that list) is Paris, as the last time I visited was 15 years ago - omg where has that time gone? - and some good food and stunning scenery was just what I was looking for.
I also happened to be looking for some pretty floors as UGG apparently love the #ihavethisthingwasfloors hashtag as much as I do and challenged me to find some gorgeous floors that not only show off my ridiculously pretty Ugg Kari sandals, but also say what summer says to me.
Paris, Summer, Love. Travel is what sets my heart on fire, Paris set my heart on fire and ultimately, I love that. I love anything that provokes that excited, overwhelmed butterfly feeling in your stomach and summer, more often than not, seems to be the season that homes those occasions.
Summer says travelling but it also says exploring - and not just in anticipation of finding the gluten free croissant bakery, although that was up there in my life highlights, alongside being BFF’s with Gary Barlow when working on the X-Factor. Cool. - so of course one of the first places I went to visit was the Louvre which is where I so inelegantly modelled the Ugg Kari's below.
As you can probably see, I am beyond obsessed with the Kari's and they are officially my "I need to be comfy whilst taking in the sights and as much food as possible" sandals that will be following me on my next adventures for the foreseeable future!
Ugg also have a pretty snazzy competition running - who doesn't love a good competition? Nobody, nobody I tell you... - where all you have to do is upload a summer snap with the hashtag #summersays and tag @ugguk and you could be in with the chance of winning £500 to spend on the Ugg website. Pretty darn great if you ask me!
Have you tried out any Ugg Sandals yet? What are your favourite Instagram accounts for pretty floors? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
As always, thanks so much for reading!
