I hope you’re reading this blog post in the garden, on a balcony or in a park – if not, get yourself outside and enjoy the sunshine, pastey! My suggestion would be to don a maxi dress, drape a daisy chain over your head and stage a mini Woodstock – and what better music system to channel the Summer of Love vibe than this Floral record player? Besides, doesn’t everything sound better on vinyl?
The Crosley Floral record player costs £160 and will be exclusive to Urban Outfitters (it’s available shortly). It can spin 7″ and 12″ records at 33 1/3, 45 and 78 rpm, and there’s also a USB port so you can hook up a computer or smartphone and play digital music through its stereo speakers.
My recommended playlist would be…
1. Floral Dance by Terry Wogan
2. A Good Year for the Roses by Elvis Costello
3. I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker (With Flowers In My Hair) by Sandi Thom
4. In Bloom by Nirvana
5. Car Wash by Rose Royce
…but I’d love to hear your track suggestions via the comments box!
