SUMMER LUST LIST
Hi lovelies! Hopefully, this week I shall be finally booking my summer holiday - eeek! I wasn't actually expecting to be able to have one this year due to a lot going on and lots of exciting things to be saving for, but as the summer creeps closer and closer, we've decided we can't go without one and should hopefully be jumping on the plane to spain sometime in August - yippee!! So, of course, that meant I was straight on the internet looking for bikinis, summer dresses, flip flops etc etc and both high street and high end have so many amazing pieces right now, I could literally spend a fortune! (But I won't, as I now have a holiday to pay for). However, I thought I'd share a few of my top picks with you all - a few of which will no doubt sneak into my online basket in the near future, don't you just hate it when that happens?
Of course, I had to add a Triangl Bikini! They have absolutely swarmed the blogosphere and I can see why! The style and fit of every single one is just beautiful. My absolute favourite has to be this bright pink one (surprise surprise), I think this colour is amazing with a tan so I'd loooove to be able to wear this beauty on the beach! With the beach in mind, I picked out this beautiful Ted Baker Shopper Bag, while it's probably too beautiful to actually use on the beach, it's definitely a very summery 'holiday bag'. I'd probably use this on days out and as my hand luggage on the plane, so I could feel super summery from the moment I hit the airport!
When it comes to sunglasses, I don't think you can beat a good pair of cat eyes and these white ones from River Island are just amazing! I think white is just that bit nicer than black for a holiday and as I tend to wear lots of bright colours, they're go with absolutely everything. They're super inexpensive too, so you wouldn't mind too much if they got sat on or lost at sea!! Speaking of bright colours, how amazing is this Topshop Necklace? If you know me at all you'll know I love a good statement necklace and this one is just incredible. With a plain white dress and some pretty sandals you'd be good for a night out in no time.
This tropical print Bodycon Dress is from Miss Selfridge and I am completely in love with it. It could be worn during the day with flip flops or dressed up at night with wedges or heels. I think the print is just stunning too, I may have to pick this one up very soon! Perfect to pair with this dress (and many other outfits!) are these white Ted Baker Flip Flops, I already have several pairs of these in other colours and in slightly different styles and they're my favourite flip flops ever. They're super comfy and really easy to clean, particularly if you go to a sandy beach.
What do you think of my picks? Is there anything you have your eye on for summer?
