The past few weeks have seen us embrace wind and rain on an epic level, in fact it’s been the wettest British summer since records began, and, as you can imagine, this has created pandemonia in many of our wardrobes.

Trench coats have become SS12 staples,  reinforced umbrellas are the norm and we even overheard a commuter boast about finding a thermal vest in M&S – yes folks, it’s been a dismal month indeed.

Luckily for us, the sun has finally donned his hat (just in time for the Games) and we couldn’t be more excited if we tried!
