Fashion Haul : Summer Holiday Goodies

Sunday, 23 March 2014

During the week I went on a spending splurge.... and picked up some bits for my holiday to Portugal in May.

First off, I went to Penneys! The first thing that I needed to get were bikinis. I was sifting through my summer box to see what I had and I noticed that all of my bikinis have prints on them. And while they're nice, I'm just a bit sick of them. So I decided to pick up some simple, plain ones. I got the same bikini in two different colours: black and coral. The top is a bandeau (which is my favourite style) and the strap can be worn three different ways. 

I'm so boring when it comes to sunglasses! I never seem to be brave enough to try something fun or different. I usually stick to buying black oversized glasses. So, this summer I'm going to try to come out of my comfort zone and try different shapes. I thought these two would be easy to start off with as they're not too different but I'm still stepping out of my comfort zone a little. I couldn't decide which pair to get so, I got both as they're very different from each other and they were so cheap. It would've almost been silly not to buy both! ;-) I love the shape of the black glasses. I didn't think they would look flattering on but I was pleasantly surprised when I tried them on. The round shaped glasses are very on trend at the moment. For €2, you really can't go wrong with these!

I bought this cardigan more so for Ireland than Portugal. I thought the colour was nice to brighten up dreary days and it's so cosy! But it would be handy for the plane or at night time if it gets a bit chilly.

I thought this would be really handy to throw over my bikini at the pool. I think the white lace is really elegant looking. And it was cheap as chips too! 

And last but not least I picked up this gorgeous mint skirt from H&M. I'm loving skater skirts at the moment. I think they're so pretty and easy to wear. When I saw the colour of this, I fell in love with it. I think this will look really nice paired with a simple white tee and a nice pair of sandals for a daytime look and for night time you could pair it with a black top and a pair of wedges. 

I hope you enjoyed my picks! Which was your favourite? I can't wait to wear all of them in the lovely sunshine!

  1. I love the bikinis. I nearly picked one up the other day, but wanted to try it on first. You've just reminded me that I should nip back in during the week when I have a bit more time on my hands to try things on!
