Holiday Looks - Summer 2014 #4

H&M Basic White Tee (not on website!)

This is my last 'holiday looks' posts, and my favourite too!

I purchased this playsuit, a month or so ago and has featured on 'my summer purchases' post (check it out, if you like!) This is definitely one of my favourite summer time outfits, as it is so simple and effortless! Also I have never really been know to wear black as I think it looks took dark against my hair, but with the while polka dots and a light top underneath I don't think it looks too dark! It is also easy to revive this outfit and make it look completely different by changing the colour top underneath, adding jewellery and maybe even adding a tee over the playsuit to make it completely different?!

What is you favourite summer time outfit?

Holiday Looks - Summer 2014 #3

Gold Necklace - Topshop (Not on website, but may still be in store!)

This seems like I am a Topshop marketer or something... but I promise it’s just coincidence that all of the items except the shoes are from Topshop...!!

Anyway, I purchased this aline skirt quite a while ago, but I had never really been able to place it with anything to 'look right' but I think I have found the answer! The top I put it with was a crop top and it is so pretty and I love the scallop detailing along the edges of the top. I wore this necklace, as I thought the outfit colours were a little too plain so I added the gold to mix it up a bit. To finish this outfit off, I paired my plain navy Havaianas to make it seem more casual.

Holiday Looks - Summer 2014 #2

Hat - A little shop in Vietnam (but... you can get them in most places!)

This outfit combo, is so simple and is great for the Summer time! I have previously mentioned these scallop shorts in another post and I have worn them in so many outfits! The top is baggy and airy and is perfect for hot holiday weather. Finally, the hat... I am not really much of a ‘hat person’ as I have never really felt comfortable wearing them but I really love this one, as it is fairly small and doesn’t look too large!

Holiday Looks - Summer 2014 #1

So... I was thinking that as I am on holiday at the moment, that it would be fun to do a ‘holiday looks’ featuring some of the outfits I have worn. Hopefully this will give you ideas on what to maybe pack for a super sunny holiday! Look out for the next posts showing other outfits!

I am absolutely loving these shorts right now, they are so super comfy and baggy and look nice too! A wardrobe is not complete without floral patterns, is it?

I love the contrast of the two blues, as they are slightly different shades, but work well! This outfit is not complete with my white and metallic sandals -  which go with everything!

My 10 Summer Wardrobe Essentials

My Summer essentials are different pieces of clothing, accessories and shoes that are essential to my Summer wardrobe. This is a list of my necessities for Summer which I would not be able to survive without (a little over dramatic?!)

1)      Tank tops
This is an absolute essential for me especially in the Summer when it’s hot, and all you want to do is stay cool- well that is when tank tops come into use! Plus they are great to wear underneath semi-see through/see through tops... so you know... you don’t have everything on show!

2)      Crop tops
Crop tops so perfect for Summer! They are so handy and can be paired with any piece, to create a gorgeous Summer outfit. I love plain crop tops in light and bright colours, and they are really easy and look lovely with floral and pattern skirts and distressed denim shorts. You can also wear them with high waisted clothing which I prefer to do as I don’t particularly like showing my stomach too much, and so I usually wear crop tops with high waisted skirts, shorts and jeans. 

3)      Denim shirt
My wardrobe isn’t complete without one when it’s sunny, as it is great to throw over your shoulders to stop them from burning and can also be used to cover up for the evening when its cooler and little bit breezy.

4)      Floral skirt
Skirts  are the perfect piece for Summer and floral ones are even better! They can be paired with a simple white top or graphic tee for the perfect Summer outfit, or can be dressed up with a pair or pumps or heels for the ideal comfy evening outfit.

5)      Denim shorts
I practically live in shorts during the Summer wearing them literally repeatedly for months, 
and so I have several pair of denim ones. They are really practical and keep you cool whilst being stylish, which is a bonus!

6)      Oversized t-shirts
I have so many of these in so many different colours, and I just keep on adding to my collection. They are great for a simple and effortless look, and they keep you cool on hot Summer days. (There is nothing worse than boiling in a tight and figure hugging top all day!) They also go with literally everything, skirts, shorts, jeans, trousers...

7)      Bright dress
I love bright colours in the Summer, as they really fit in with the hot weather and make the most of it! They really show off personality through the colours and your own personal style, whilst being all summery. Dresses are so convenient when it’s hot and look so stylish and keep you feeling cool at the same time.

8)      Sandals
I wear sandals most days during the Summer. I buy a pair every year and wear them until they fall apart or no longer fit. I especially love the way they look, and add a Summer feel to an outfit!

9)      Converses
Converses are a definite must - have in my wardrobe! I always have at least one pair, and I repurchase these every year when they are worn and tatty. I especially love the white ones, even though they are slightly impractical as they get dirty so easily but they go with everything and are comfortable too!

10)   Necklaces
        I am really starting to love necklaces and I think they will definitely be a staple piece in my Summer wardrobe. They really add a statement and a bit of ‘bling’ to an outfit and make the plainest piece of clothing look gorgeous! Even plain gold and silver necklaces add to an outfit making it look pretty and effortless.
