Summer Wishlist: River Island Strappy Cami

This is now my second summer in Hong Kong, and I wouldn't say that I have fully acclimatised but at least I don't feel like I'm going to burst into flames like a vampire coming into contact with the sun anymore. Progress, right?

I've never been one for warm weather dressing. I'm a sweater, not the knitted garment kind, the sweating kind. This means I've always found it hard to dress for the heat. I don't want to be all damp and feel like my clothes are stuck to me, and god forbid visible sweat patches. 

My Hong Kong summer uniform right now consists of a lot of denim shorts and sleeves tees and tanks. Although they tick all the right boxes in terms of comfort, sometimes I feel a little too casual. That's where these strappy camis from River Island come in...

Smart-ish, different from a regular cami/vest, can be dressed up or down, will keep me cool in the heat, and comfortable... tick tick and tick tick tick (or check, to you American English folk). 

I've never been a huge River Island fan in the past as a lot of the clothes had far too many diamante details and embellishments for my liking, but I think these understated strappy camis are a winner. 

All that's left for me to do is order them. Thank goodness they ship internationally!
