A couple of months ago Kaleidoscope got in touch about a summer project they had in mind; #bloggersabroad.
As me and hubs had planned a trip to the beautiful city of Bruge i said a big yes please to count me in.
Each blogger got to choose some items from Kaleidoscope’s holiday shop that would suit their holiday destination.
Then a couple of weeks ago i pulled out my passport excitedly and gave it the once over..
It had expired!!
How can these even be? I’m a travel agent for crying out loud, i advise people about this very thing every day!! Pfft!
After many cursory words were used and a lot of stomping around like a bear with a sore head, i soon came to terms with that fact that we wouldn’t be going abroad any time soon (umm.. delays much UK passport agency???!!) Big sad face.
So what do you do? Well you choose somewhere a wee bit closer to home but equally beautiful and you make that your holiday. but more on that in the next month or so.
For now i have these beautiful holiday clothes that i get to trial run before my holiday. Thankfully my choices were for a chic city break so i found them easier to incorporate into everyday wear (rather than say a bikini, that may have been aww-kward!)
So here we have my Summer holiday choices:
This is the prettiest lightest dress, perfect for twirling and swirling. I can just imagine me wearing this for a night out with some yummy food and drinks.. I’m actually wondering how i will style this in a more casual way for my impending British break, but i do love a good challenge.
The raspberry clutch is also the perfect little bag to take away for evenings out. I’d been after a pink clutch for ages so this one goes well with so many outfits which makes it perfect for taking away. And ya know, i kinda love pink!
Second UpThe Casual Stripe Dress
Made from a comfy cotton stretch like fabric (technical term there haha) this makes the perfect day dress, great practical length, doesn’t blow up on a breezy day and can look good with comfy flats.. Perfect for wandering cobbled streets and stopping for lunch.
I wanted something chic but lightweight. When the jacket arrived i did ponder as to how i would wear it.I guess i just didn’t think it was really me. But after trialling it with s few items i absolutely loved it. I’ve already worn this for more casual days and i can’t wait to show you more outfits with it. The lace arms really are quite the show stealer with this jacket and by keeping it simple everywhere else it really shows them off in all there glorious lacy glory.
Jeans: New Look
Shoes: c/o Daniel Footwear
So there we have my 3 summer holiday looks pre-summer holiday. I’ll hopefully be showing you some more styling of these after they come with me on my British holibobs later on in August.
So tell me, what is your must have item of clothing for you holidays?
