Flaming June and a visit to Kew Gardens

Hello everyone! We've had some lovely hot weather - well the old saying is 'Flaming June' after all! Cool cottons are my go to when it's very hot and to me that's anything from 25 degrees upwards. Skirt by Apricot bought at my Barnardo's last Monday and the t shirt was from the Cat's Protection League a few years back. Hilary was with me when I bought it so probably 2019?
