I’ve spent the last few weeks pining over summer – I’m getting SO bored of the cold and wet! As an out-and-out ‘Summer Gal’, I’m counting down the days but I can’t wait for summer to hurry up and get here!
Roll on the weekends spent relaxing in the garden, the barbecues, impromptu parties, festivals and most of all HOLIDAYS.
I’m currently on the search for new pieces to wear for the summer but in the meantime I thought I’d share my all-time favourite summer tracks. I’m definitely more of an old soul (and always have been) which is probably why loads of Golden-Oldies have made it into my top list!
I guarantee that as you go down the list, each and every one will put a smile on your face – they’re all classics so if there are any you haven’t heard of… well you must download them immediately!!
