Happy Easter everybody! I have a sneaky feeling that you may be spending your day curled up cosily, blogging and eating yourself silly with chocolate - so what perfect timing for me to get comfy and get my latest blog post up! Apologies I haven't been updating the blog for a couple of days, sometimes you just need a little break from it when life gets in the way. I have the whole day to relax and I'm planning on getting lots of posts written and scheduled! Moving onto today's post, you may or may not know that in just 16 days time, I will be jumping on a plane to Orlando and I am beyond excited! So with that in mind, I have been on a little shopping spree to ensure that my suitcase is going to be full of pretty things for me to wear whilst I am there! Please excuse my photography, I can't understand why it's so hard to photograph clothes as opposed to beauty products! I've included links in case you spot anything you fancy.
First up it's this absolutely beautiful bikini which my mum found for me hidden in the sale of Debenhams. I had actually looked at Debenhams' bikinis online, oohed and ahhed at how gorgeous they were - then checked the price tag and swiftly moved on! So I was pleased that this bikini only came to £20.00 in total - I refuse to pay any more than that! As you can see this bikini is a monochrome with daisy patterns, and I love the balcony top - it gives it that little extra bit of uniqueness.
I bought this online from Asos' sale as it was a bargain at just £3.50 (It's now gone back up to £5.00 - how rude!). My sister recently bought a pink version of this flower bun top from New Look, so I decided to steal her style and buy one myself! I chose this lemon flower one from River Island as it looked gorgeous on the model. There's nothing I love more than shoving my hair up into a bun (especially when I'm on holiday) and I love that this simple accessory will jazz up a messy bun.
Each summer when I buy a new bikini, I'm always guaranteed to return back to my favourite style - a bandeau top. I love this gorgeous coral bikini as it's a flattering shape and the colour is going to look amazing when teamed with a tan (if I ever get one that is!). I bough this bikini from the ever trusty New Look and it's also available in navy and white.
Denim shorts are always a bit of a touchy subject for me - I try them on and they're too tight and too short so I give up. However I spotted these gorgeous light blue mom shorts in New Look and I loved them straight away. I love that they aren't 'short shorts' and they completely cover up my bum and don't show too much thigh! I also picked up a plain black bandeau top from ASOS (or in the words of my mum - it's a boob tube) and I think they will look lovely teamed together.
Floozie Navy Daisy Collar Playsuit.
This cute little playsuit was also hidden away in Debenhams' sale - thanks again to my mum for her detective skills when it comes to the sales! This was a bargain, reduced down from £28.00 down to just £8.00, saving me a whopping £20.00 - that covered the bikini then! I was lucky enough to grab the last one of these in the sale (I can't find it online anywhere). It is a slight squeeze to get past my thighs as it's only an 8, but when it's on it's a really flattering shape and is super comfy too.
Have you bought any summer clothes recently? x
