Holiday lookbook: Part 1

Top - Zara  Skirt - River Island  Bag - H&M  Sandals - Zara  Bracelet - ChloBo  Sunglasses - Westward Leaning

You would think being on holiday I could have at least smiled in one of these photo's. I was happy, honest!  And no matter how much I think I am doing a non-goofy, cool and totally hip blogger pose smile, I just succumb to 'resting bitch face'. But anyway, apologies for that! Here is part one of my holiday style diary. I had a pretty chilled out holiday in Marbella this year, so there wasn't a pair of heels in sight (apart from a gorgeous pair my boyfriend snapped up in the Zara sale as a birthday present, but more about those later). 

This top was a great sale find from Zara. I loved the floaty material and the palm print and colours, and I thought it would be perfect on holiday. I decided to go for clashing prints in the form of this River Island skort. This has to be one of my favourite buys of the year, I think it's so flattering and I am such a sucker for black and white; I can't resist! It's just so classy and easy to pair with items. Unfortunately this Zara top has sold out online, and I did snap up this skort in the sale on River Island, but you can still find it full price here.

I kept this item casual with a pair of last year's Zara silver and white sandals and my trusty Westward Leaning sunnies; these babies never fail me. My bangle was a present from my parents trip to Morocco a few months back and I thought the turquoise stone complimented the top perfectly and I wanted to keep accessories to a minimum, so it seemed perfect.



Trousers - Closet Clothing*  Jumper - Zara  Jacket - Whistles  Shoes - Zara  Bag - H&M  Sunglasses - ASOS

Here is a super quick post to show you guys these gorgeous Closet Clothing pants I received a few weeks back. These are so gorgeous and perfect for summer, and the lovely tailored style looks great with either flats or heels. The material is really nice and thick too.

This is a pretty casual outfit that I've put together. I decided to throw on my Zara sliders for a day time look and added a splash of colour with my new favourite Zara sale buy, this mustard yellow jumper. I had my eye on this sleeveless knit for a while and when it came in the sale I just had to get it! It's such a great colour and I love the high neck. This is my last post for a week or so as I am off on holiday, but I will be doing a holiday style diary when I get back to show you guys some of my holiday looks, so keep posted!


Lady Danger

Dress - Motel*  Coat - River Island  Bag - Zara  Shoes - Zara  Sunglasses - ASOS

How beautiful is this Motel Rocks bodycon dress? I am usually not one for bodycon these days. I sometimes feel it's a little 'much'. But the slightly laid back look to this one really drew me to it, along with the gorgeous Orange-Red colour and asymmetric cut out sleeve. The orange colour also matches this matte MAC lippy perfectly. It's the ideal length for me and I can't wait to rock this with my (hopeful) tan on Holiday. It's just all round a really flattering dress.

I decided to jazz it up a bit for a more daytime look by throwing on my daisy print coat from River Island, which I now believe they have created in a short too; need this flower power co-ord in my life! I am SO loving River Island at the moment, they seem to have dropped the rhinestones and started making some fierce items. I can't wait to get my hands on some of their AW14 fur pieces I have seen knocking about on Instagram. Keeping my eyes peeled for them to hit stores!

Hope you like my latest look and thank you so much for all your lovely comment's guys! I love hearing your feedback!

Hippie Heights

Dress - Lavish Alice* Kimono - Sheinside* Bag - Marks and Spencer  Shoes - George ASDA  Sunglasses - Burberry

Well I did promise a more laid back version of my previous post featuring this gorgeous Lavish Alice dress, and here it is. 

Kimono's have come back in full force this season, and I have wanted one of these rainbow, gypsy style maxi kimono's for a while now, so when I came across this one on Sheinside, I knew I had to have it. It is just so perfect for summer, and can be worn so many different ways. You can do up the buttons and wear it as a nice sheer dress over a slip, so I will definitely be mixing it up on my holiday in a weeks time. I am so in love, it is THE summer holiday wardrobe staple. How gorgeous are those colours? 

I pared this with my oversized nude Burberry sunnies I got a couple of years ago to top off the Boho look I was channeling. I love these sunglasses, they're just so chic, even if I do feel a bit Paris Hilton in them. They have a nice little flash of rose gold on the edges too which I love. I also thought I would stay laid back with my absolute bargain sandals I got last year from George ASDA. After looking EVERYWHERE for the perfect simple black and gold pair, I found them whilst doing my food shopping, of all places. 


Nautical Play

Jacket - Jovonna*  Co-ord - 5Fashion*  Bag - Zara  Heels - Zara  Sunglasses - ASOS

If you haven't tried this seasons BIGGEST trend yet, the Co-ord, then you need to get buying. They can be so versatile; wear them together or mix and match. If you're feeling brave, find a three piece. Either way, I know they are one of my favourite trends at the moment. 

This chic, white two piece from 5Fashion is bringing out my inner Kim K. The pencil skirt with the a-symmetric hem is such a classic style and can be dressed up or down. It's also really light weight, so perfect for summer. I don't know about you, but I love finding new websites, and 5Fashion is brilliant. Make sure you check out their website here for some amazing summer bargains.

This jacket is part of an amazing package I received from the gorgeous boutique designer, Jovonna. You may have seen a few of their items in Topshop, and I have always loved them as I thought they were a little different and quirky. Recently, I was lucky enough to win a shopping spree via a Facebook competition, which I couldn't believe because, trust me, I never win anything! This bomber jacket is so gorgeous and perfect for summer, and has a cute slight nautical theme to it. 

I hope you guys like my outfit!
