holiday day one and two


poolside: top: matalan, high waist shorts: H&M, hat: new look, sandals: new look
evening: dress: H&M, necklace: forever 21, sandals: new look 
breakfast: dress: H&M, hat: new look, necklaces: forever 21, sandals: primark 
matching outfit with my 10 yr old sister (was a joke!) dress: new look kids, shoes: primark

Quick snap outfit post from holiday!  Not the usual ~*llymlrs quality*~  like I said the other day but just an idea of what I  haves been wearing while Im away. Its by no means a guide to what to wear on holiday, if anything it's the same clothes I wear in the UK just without tights or a cardigan! Anyway I thought people would appreciate seeing what I wore. I really could have packed less if I wanted to but really couldn't be bothered with that whole capsule wardrobe dribble! I don't really subscribe to less is more, I normally plan 2 outfits more for each day/night that I'm away, I need because its inevitable I probably wont want wear something when it comes to the time to actually wear it.

Its not THAT hot here at the moment, around 25-27C, apparently its raining back home so thats probably crazy hot compared to there! Its all good though here though, sometimes the family get too much! I however just sit under a tree and read on my Kindle most of the time! Discovered they do awesome Frappe's here but terrible coffee, getting my caffeine fix this holiday is probably going to make me put on all the weight I lost before coming away!

  9. Soooo cute are you! :)
    And I have the same "problems" planing outfits for a holiday or being away from home. So I always pack more than less to make sure I find something I'm feeling comfortable with.
