Playsuit (*) and Shoes (*) - Boohoo / Jacket (*) - Missguided / Bag - Sarah Ashcroft collection at Lamoda / Sunglasses and Belt - ASOS
Good evening! Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend! Where on earth has July gone? I'm not too upset just because there's lots happening in August so I do want July to hurry up. Plus I will be nearer to my holiday (which isn't til September waahh! At least I've got plenty of time to prepare)
It doesn't stop me wearing holiday looks which can be styled up so it's suited for out and out in the
UK though! The Boohoo hamsa playsuit is PERFECT for holiday and is a wardrobe must! It's only £15 and it's a lovely lightweight material. I would wear this over a bikini if I needed to go out of the holiday hotel or, for this instance in the UK, a simple lightweight jacket is great to layer it up for the cooler evenings. If you aren't a fan of the Hamsa print, Boohoo also stocks an elephant print in a deep purple colour *adds to basket*.
I also need to add something about the Missguided biker jacket. I noticed on the reviews some people said the faux suede biker jackets are poor quality or not worth the £40 price tag. In my opinion the jacket definitely isn't poor quality, however, the strap at the bottom of the jacket gets pulled from the heavy buckle so on a couple of occasions the strap has fallen out but i've luckily noticed. I may just simply stitch the belt strap in place to keep it secure but apart from that I really like their jackets and love how easy they are to style. You can size down in these but I kept to a size 10 just because I prefer the slouchy fit. Would I buy another in a different colour? Absolutely!
The shoes from Boohoo are also a must! I only picked them for a festival a couple weeks ago because the cleated heel would make them practical for walking on the grass but they have become one of my favourite pair of shoes! I am definitely taking these on holiday because I love that they still give the illusion of longer legs, yet I literally feel like I have a spring in my step when I walk in these. I honestly couldn't fault them!
The ASOS western belt has been used loads! It's real leather and I have worn it several times but I MIGHT buy a new one just for holiday because the strap is wearing away slightly. The one I have will probably be fine for holiday but this belt has been one of my earlier summer purchases and the strap is starting to flake a tiny bit! I still think it's worth it. It's flattering and it looks super nice with ripped denim shorts or around a floaty summer dress!
