HOLIDAY DIARIES: day 6







Dress: Primark | Sandals: ASOS

This is my final holiday post and I have to say I'm definitely feeling the holiday blues. I've been back just over a week and from tomorrow I start a 3 month internship at Beautiful Bottoms London so I'm trying to prepare myself for the early mornings and daily commutes. I'm really looking forward to it and hopefully I'll still manage to post regularly and keep you up to date with what I'm wearing and wishing for.

Onto the outfit, I'm wearing an £8 Primark dress which comes in lots of other colours too. It is a really lovely fit as it almost flares and swings towards the bottom and the loose fit means you don't have to spend your time sucking in your belly. I like the v-shape neckline and I really love this coral colour and thought it was perfect for the last night when I'd built up a little tan. It's also a great length and appropriate for day time as it sits just above the knee. My only issue was it creased a lot having been folded in my suitcase and even after a week of hanging in the wardrobe it still could've done with an iron! I wish I'd had a larger weight limit on my suitcase as it would've looked lovely with some wedges and a few accessories. 

How would you have accessorised this dress?

HOLIDAY DIARIES: day 5













Bralet: Topshop | Skort: Primark | Sandals: Topshop

Finally, showing a bit of a tan on day 5 of my holiday yay! Apologies, we'd been on a boat tour and got back late so the photos were very dark. This was one of my favourite outfits, even if it is a bit revealing, but if you can't wear this on holiday when can you wear it? I love these Topshop bralets, they are quite revealing but not nearly as much as some that I've seen. I got a size 10 and it fits pretty well, the straps are maybe a bit too long but other than that it's great! It also goes with literally anything. I think if I was going to wear it daytime though it would have to be under a sheer shirt or top as I'd feel a bit naked. You've seen this mint skort before but I it looks so much better with a tan and with this top. I still need to get my hands on the other colours because it's such a great item and for only £10. 

What do you think? Would you wear this bralet in the daytime?

HOLIDAY DIARIES: day 4






Top: Topshop | Necklace: Topshop | Shorts: She Inside | Sandals: ASOS

Day 4 of the holiday outfits and I'm keeping up with the crop top and shorts combo. It just felt like the right amount of casual but still a bit more dressy than the average day at home. Sorry if you're getting bored of these shorts but I just can't get enough of them and they're probably still going to make a few more appearances. They were also perfect for when you eat a little too much! I'm fighting the urge to buy them in more colours as well but with no money in the bank that won't be happening for a while :( The colour of this top is one of my favourites at the mo, I really like corals and pink/oranges and this crop from Topshop was £8 which is fairly reasonable. The only slight issue is I found it quite thin and see through so need to watch which bra I wear underneath! Other than that I love how it fits and the way it can be dressed up and down. To add some detail I wore this Topshop necklace which looks great with this neckline.


HOLIDAY DIARIES: day 3








 Top: She Inside | Shorts: New Look | Sandals: ASOS | Headband: Turkey

This is the third outfit in my holiday series, and one I slightly regretted later on in the night. Let's just say the shorts were a little tight after a 3 course meal at a Chinese restaurant! It's the first time I'd actually worn the shorts out and although I love the colours and the print, I can't say I'll be wearing them again anytime soon as they were VERY tight and a little too short, for only £6 in the New Look sale though I can't complain. I love the pastel take on the tropical trend in their pattern as most tropical prints tend to be very colourful and bold, whereas these are a bit more subtle. I wore them with this gypsy style off the shoulder crop top from She Inside which is a great dupe for one being sold at H&M! Thankfully, the top is very stretchy and not too tight so I wasn't completely squeezed in. The ASOS sandals make an appearance again, having been the most worn shoes on my holiday as the holographic material means the colours coordinate with every outfit, I can't recommend them enough. And finally, I topped it all off with a little flower headband I picked up at the Turkish markets but you can pick these up in most high street stores at the moment.

HOLIDAY DIARIES: day 2









Top: Jane Norman | Shorts: River Island | Shoes: ASOS 

Day 2 of my holiday I went for another shorts and crop top combo (you might see a trend developing) and opted for these super comfy River Island shorts. The bright colours and print make them perfect to stand out and be a little different on holiday but the fit allows for those indulgent meals I just can't resist and lets you keep your modesty. River Island have a really lovely selection of shorts, particularly patterned ones, online at the moment so definitely check them out! I kept it pretty simple with the mint crop top, picking one of the many colours in the shorts to coordinate them. Finally, to pick up the other colours I wore my snakeskin ASOS sandals which are still in stock in a few sizes, as we had a bit of walking to do and I find them so comfy but still not ordinary! With the weight limit I only took one bag and one cardigan so haven't featured them in the outfit posts as I didn't want it to get too boring for you.

What have you been wearing for holidays?

HOLIDAY DIARIES: day 1










 Top: New Look | Shorts: She Inside | Sandals: Topshop | Sunglasses: New Look | Rings: Primark & Amazon

So, this is the first in a series of 6 holiday outfit posts. It's been a bit chaotic since getting home so sorry for the wait for the new post! I had a 15kg weight limit on my suitcase for 7 days so had to be really selective and plan out my outfits beforehand. I only took a few pairs of shoes and not many accessories so you might see bits and bobs repeated in the holiday diaries so apologies in advance if you get bored! Also, all of the outfits are pretty casual so don't expect anything to flash or exciting, just cool and (fairly) comfy ensembles.

This was the first evening and we went out fairly to explore the local area so it was pretty damn hot. I made the mistake of wearing black and got so hot! I thought this little New Look crop (from the teens section) was perfect for the holiday with its cute pineapple print and kept it simple just pairing it with these She Inside shorts (good Zara dupes). The only thing with the shorts is I'd prefer if they were high waisted as wearing them with a crop ends up getting a lot of flesh out. Almost wish I'd bought the white She Inside shorts (featured previously) in black too! Keeping to the black theme, I wore Topshop sandals which if I'm honest I don't find particularly comfortable, I think because they're a bit too small. Oops. 

The view from our balcony was perfect, definitely got the holiday blues right now!

OOTD: coral crazy








Top: Missguided | Shorts: Fashion Union | Sunglasses: New Look | Rings: Primark | Heels: ASOS 

I'm looking a bit pale in these photos and pretty much blend in with the clothes, but hopefully by the time i'm back from my holiday I'll have a bit of natural colour (fingers crossed). I love this colour, like peach coral goodness I can't get enough of it. The shorts are perfect, they fit great and let you maintain your modesty and the lime and green checks look amazing next to the coral. It is part of a co ord but I was a bit wary of ordering the top because it was a really low cut bralet and I could see myself struggling to keep my boobs in. Instead I went for this Missguided bralet which is still pretty low cut but still kept me in place and was a bit more supportive. It zips at the back and I like the shape but it is a little gapey and that's a size 8, so maybe size down if you're looking to buy this. Feeling like I may be boring you with my black strappy heels I pulled out these nude peep toe court shoes I have and a little silver anklet I got on holiday last year. The outfit could easily be dressed down with some flatform sandals or birks and both the top and shorts are really versatile. Final mention for these sunglasses... after sitting on my last pair and breaking them, these New Look bargains were a perfect replacement and I love the retro shape.

Can you recommend any bra lets that are cute but still don't show too much boob?
