Editorial Things to Love About Summer

Posted on 28 December by

Summer has arrived! Here’s a pile of reasons why we love it.

There are many reasons summer is the best season of the year. The warmth of the summer sun on your skin. The cool water as you dip your toes in the pool. The sweet juicy taste of ripe summer fruits. Even the smell of salt wafting from the waves at the beach. To inspire that summer feeling, here are the top eight things to love about summer:

Swimming—doesn’t matter where!

Whether it’s in your pool at home, at the local beach or even your neighbour’s pool, the warm summer days provide every reason to go swimming. It doesn’t matter if you prefer an early morning dip or to cool down after a hard day, summer is the perfect reason to take a dip in your favourite waterway. 

Get the summer look

And the next best thing about all that swimming, is finding the right look to match. Whether you prefer a feminine bikini, a structured one piece or boardies for the guys, all the latest styles are out for summer. And outside the pool, all you will need is flowing cotton dresses, shirts and shorts. Summer means colour and fun and is the hottest fashion season.

Fresh summer foods

Health is important no matter the season but summer is the easiest time to look after yourself. With the sweet juicy stone fruits like nectarines and plums signalling summer has arrived to the fresh, crisp salads that make hot days bearable, there’s no better time to get in your best shape. An occasional treat is vital for balance in health and wellbeing, and what better way than to slurp ice cream as it threatens to melt under the hot summer sun.

Santa Claus is coming to town!

The biggest indicator of summer is the jolly bearded man visiting. The warm balmy summer nights provide the perfect setting for checking out the local Christmas light displays. The sounds of Christmas carols and the excitement of the Christmas themed shop windows with decorations galore add to the enjoyment that is summer.

Alfresco dining

Summer is the perfect season to head outdoors for more than just play. With the sunshiny days and warm nights, it’s a perfect reason to take lunch, dinner and your favourite summer treats outside.

Endless days

With long days throughout summer, even if you can’t have a holiday, there are still plenty of ways you can relax and rejuvenate. Dinner and a movie is just the ticket. And exercise is easy with brighter days. The added boost to Vitamin D will make you happier with that summer feeling, meaning it won’t be such a chore to head to work each day.

Party season

Summer also signals party season! Whether it’s an end of year celebration or a birthday party, summer is the best time for socialising. With hot balmy nights and more sunlight, it’s the perfect reason to put on your favourite summer dress or chino shorts and head out for a fun night of partying.

Hitting the beach this year? Get all your swimwear from Sandy Bay Surf Co and City Beach. You can find plenty of fresh, in-season food at Macarthur Fruit Market, or spend those endless afternoons dining out at Kellicar Lane Dining Precinct.
