Before rollerskating I didn’t have any other activities that drew me outside into the sun, other than summertime photo-shoots but of course. My work keeps me inside and I hadn’t taken part in any organised sport since high-school, so I’ve been happy for the change-up in lifestyle that taking up rollerskating has given me. It has set me free from office and workroom walls, and makes me dream of the outside and swooshing around on wheels OFTEN.
I love the playfulness and youthfulness of rollerskating, it makes it such an appealing and addictive form of exercise! Plus, you can pretty much dress in whatever way you like while doing it, which also appeals greatly to a fashion-lover like myself. Having fun and being playful is such an important part of enjoying life, in my opinion, so I try to make sure that things I choose to do in my spare time are full of fun. And the more fun that those activities are, the more I tend to make time to do them, which has a nice flow-on effect to creating a healthier work-life balance Win-win!!
Now, I’m a pale-skinned lass, so I do have to be careful and sun-smart when out having fun in the warm summer weather. Sunscreen is a MUST! But being sun-careful and active doesn’t mean you can’t also be as stylish as all hell, so here’s my round up of super cute, super sassy items to put together a Roller Lolita look this summer, whether you’re a roller or skater girl (or both!)….
Getting sporty never looked so good…
