Soooo, My dad has been pretty stressed out with work and there's this one place in Greece that we always go back to when we go away, and we've not been in 3 or 4 years, then the otherday he decided he wanted a break and there was one room left so we booked a last minute holiday. Which then came with the issue - what on earth do I have that I can take on holiday?
Luckily I had recently bought about 6 of the bargain strap tops that Newlook sell so that was my daytime wear pretty much sorted along with a pair of shorts! But I didn't really have anything for evenings so I still needed a few bits.
The skirt on the left is a very bright, fluorescent skirt that I picked up from Primark for a bargain £4
The skirt on the right is black, white and a coral/peachy colour, and I picked that up from Select for £6
The top I bought a while ago from asos - pretty sure that was £4 also, so with that top and one of these skirts, I've got an outfit there for under £10 - Wonderful!:)
I've never worn a dress like this before, but I really liked the way it fit top half, even if I'm still not quite used to the floatyness of it!:) I got this from the sale in Select for £10.60 I believe!:)
Okay, as you can tell I've decided to step out of my comfort zone a little bit and go for a bit more bright and patterned style clothing to what I'm used to, it seems to be in at the minute so I thought I'd try it out! and I surprisingly liked this dress! The pattern on the front is slightly different to the one on the back which is why I took a picture from behind too :) This was £18 from Jane Norman
Well for a lovely summer holiday to Greece - of course a bikini is an essential!;)
This is a beautiful almost mint green bikini - I got this from Tescos - the bottoms were £5 and the top was £9
This aztec bikini is white, black and neon pink. I purchased the skirts above the next day, and when I brought them home I discovered this bikini top actually is quite similar to the 2nd skirt apart from the pinks are different tones - but I think I'll still be able to get away with it :) This set is also from Tesco, the bottoms were £5 and the top was £7
Shorts & Accessories
So my eye sight is AWFUL and I'd been trying to hold off getting a pair of sunglasses as really I needed a pair of prescription ones - which are pretty damn pricey! But as we're going away I had to get some, I 'd been searching round for ages and couldn't find any that I liked then I found these and surprisingly I liked them! They cost £12.50 - which is a lot for me - usually I pay about £6 for sunnies, but they were needed !These are Foster Grants ones you can get them from places like Sainsburys, Superdrug etc
The shorts I picked up from Primark for a bargain £5!!! I almost got another pair but they didn't have the colour I wanted when I went back sad times :(
I didn't have a nice little bag that I could take out in the evenings when all I really would need is a camera and money (not all my books and music and stuff like I do in the day whilst I'm chilling by the pool:P) then I saw this little baby in Tesco for just £5 so thought I had to ;)
I forgot to take a picture of these (my bad) so I took the picture off the website. These are from tescos and cost £12.50 - I can't usually wear sandals like this as my feet are quite wide, but these are REALLY comfy! definitely recommend them!!
Anyways I best be off now! Hope you enjoyed this post! I'll see you all in a week!
Are you going away this summer? Where are you off to and where did you find your summer clothing bargains?!:)
