A Gilet for the Great British Summertime Weather

A Gilet for the Great British Summertime Weather.

Over the last few days, the weather has been amazing. The sun has been shining brightly and it has been so hot out there. I can not believe how warm it was at the running club the other night too. It took me hours to cool down afterwards. It just feels like the middle of Summer.

I am not complaining though!! I am loving it.

Just wondering how long it will last for!? Ha!!

It is now time to pack all my Winter jackets away for a few months.

Hopeful until the end of Autumn.

Yeah!  (I have been waiting for ages to do this!!).

A Gilet for the Great British Summertime Weather:

Today I have teamed up with Millets and The North Face to share what kind of jacket I will be wearing over the next few weeks now the weather has warmed up and also for cooler days when the sun is hiding.

Millets have recently released their Spring/Summer range which includes a great selection of lightweight jackets, fleeces and gilets perfect for the great British weather.

They kindly asked me to pick one of my favourite items which I would like to be wearing throughout the Summer months.

What I really needed was something to keep me warm when on early morning dog walkies.

Nothing that keeps my arms to restricted for when I am throwing Mollie’s frisbee.

Something to keep my door keys safe and mostly keep my body warm when the sun is not out.

Also, something to protect me if the weather changes when I am out walking.

Yes, it chucked it out the other day when I was walking. Mollie and I were soaking wet when we got home.

I love my The North Face jackets, that I already have and thought how perfect this Gilet would be for a change.

About THE NORTH FACE Women’s Nuptse 2 Gilet:

When the temperature starts to drop sometimes a jacket can be too heavy. The North Face Nuptse Gilet is the perfect transition from Summer to Autumn weather.

You can’t beat a goose down fill to keep you warm, which is why The North Face use this quality insulation in their Nuptse range. This popular gear comes in an array of colours so you can have one of each.

I was right, it does make a nice change.

I have tried it with denim shorts, jeans, a pencil skirt and also dresses and it looks great with all.

It was so warm yesterday so I thought I would share how I wore it with my maxi dress for nipping out quickly to the shops.

I love the quality and feel to this gilet. The weather is so unpredictable here in the UK and I know this is going to get lots of wear over the next few months!!

Do you like my new gilet?

What would be your got to jacket for Summer?

    I blooming well love a gilet! I cracked mine out too early this year-about a month ago-and it was still a wee bit too cold! Now seems about time for an upgrade though and you really can't beat a North Face jobbie! This looks great on you M x Life Outside London

    I love this look. The gilet looks fab. So handy too.

    This is perfect for the cooler mornings although with temperatures going up to 27 degrees in London I doubt I'd be wearing one past 8.30 am at the moment.

I hope your feet start feeling better too but you are rocking the cute and trendy espadrille flats. =)Welcome by and join my new linkup from this week. It just went so share your beautiful style. Thanks, Ada. =)

    That looks fab and it is practical too…I have been thinking about getting a Gilet for the school run. I hate taking a bag to put my phone and keys in…It would be ideal. #PoCoLo

  17. Stephanie Moore says:

    I love a Gilet, so useful for throwing on before heading out for a walk, but your not sure if it's warm enough for nothing.

  18. Stephanie 139a says:

    I"m a big gilet fan – I have a cream one and it's lovely and warm, definitely a winter one. I'd be very tempted for a summer-weight one too, but my go to jacket is well not a jacket at all I'd much rather not bother. And if I'm pushed I reluctantly carry a cardy! Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo x
