This summer will be different, but make the most of it and get kitted out to enjoy the outdoors, even if it’s just in your own garden

While we might be missing our usual holidays this year, you’ll never regret a leisurely afternoon spent soaking up the sun. It’s all the more enjoyable when you are prepared with comfortable blankets, practical gear to carry some supplies and stylish pieces to make it feel like an occasion. All you’ll need to do is decide what book to bring.
