With my Summer holiday booked it was time I bulked out my wardrobe with some new pieces and I headed straight to New Look and Primark to grab some bargains. I'll be sunning myself in the Mediterranean when this post goes live, drinking mojitos and probably getting sunburnt but at least I'll have some beautiful outfits and bikinis to go with my non existent tan.
I headed to New Look first where I picked up a black embroidered bardot style dress (£24.99), I'm not sure this style is for me but I'm going to go with it anyway because I also bought a blue stripe bardot top (£15.99). Since losing weight I'm trying to introduce more colour and styles into my wardrobe which is pretty hard for someone who lives in black. To really push myself out of my comfort zone I also bought a candy striped rope necked top (£7.99), I bought it because it was really cheap but I'm still on the fence with it. Lastly is another blue striped top with wide straps (£14.99), perfect for chucking on with a pair of jeans and converse.
I bought all my summer accessories in Primark this year starting with a classic black bikini. Primark have a mix & match section with both top and bottoms being £2 each, I bought a bandeau top and simple black bottoms. Back to my black theme I bought black tie up sandals with a suede feel (£8), black and brown slip on peep toe shoes (£4) and an adorable Flamingo purse (£3) which is big enough to hold my passport and boarding pass. Lastly, I bought a black floppy hat (£3) and a black & white bucket style beach bag (£5) which I completely forgot to include in the photos.
I'm planning on getting some outfit photos done while I'm on holiday but don't hold your breath, we all know I'm not a fashion blogger!
