We haven’t had proper holiday in I don’t know how long. What I do know, is that my holiday wardrobe was in serious need of some TLC. Going to northern France, means that we can expect similar weather to Britain, but slightly hotter and hopefully slightly sunnier. I picked out some of my favourite finds below, that will be great for scouring the markets, eating lots of lovely food and chasing after Daisy
The Chiffon Shirt
I love chiffon shirts. They can be dressed up or down, worn alone or layered and there’s a style to suit everyone. This beauty was from Very, but there are loads around at the moment and Primark always have a great selection. This will be lovely over some white jeans in the evening or with denim shorts for a day out.
The Embroidered Shorts
These beautiful shorts were in the sale in New Look and are so, so pretty. They are white broderie anglaise with navy embroidery and a scallop hem. Basically, the shorts dreams are made of. I’ll be pairing these with a relaxed navy t-shirt and tan sandals. You could easily jazz these up with some jewellery in the evening too.
The Cable Knit Jumper
So the evenings will definitely be a little chilly, but we love sitting outside our caravan and playing cards late into the night. While it’s nice to have warm weather, I love putting on a cosy jumper and staying outdoors. I found this gorgeous white cable knit jumper in Sainsburys a few weeks back. It’s not too thick and has a split on either side, making it perfect for summer evenings.
The Bardot Dress
There are so many gorgeous bardot dresses out at the moment, but combining a strapless bra and heat for someone with big boobs isn’t great. Before you know it, both are hanging somewhere around your hips and you’re anything but Brigitte Bardot. You needn’t worry about a bra with this amazing dress though. From Miss Selfridge, this floaty little number is shirred across the bust and at the top of the arm, helping to stop the sleeves from riding up. I just need to mindful of Daisy potentially pulling at this and scaring my poor father for life! Haha!
Unless you’re one of the lucky ones who sprung back into shape after having a baby, you may be concerned at the swimwear situation. Daisy is 2 and a half now, so I haven’t got an excuse for my ‘mum tum’, apart from I like food too much and exercise too little. So, all hail the high waist bikini! They hide a multitude of sins, are super flattering and make you feel like a 50’s pin up. This gorgeous flower print one from Very is a great fit, supportive and has detachable straps for those pesky tan lines.
I’d love to know what summer updates you’ve added to you wardrobe and what your essentials are for holidays. Thanks for reading!
