Beauty and the beach

Its summer holiday time!
Whether you are going abroad this year, or just hoping to catch some rays on a beach in the UK, its time to update your summer holiday style essentials.
I am a minimalist when it comes to holiday packing, so this is a capsule wardrobe for those who like to travel light!
This is a pick of my favourite items around at the moment.

1. Hat
Keeps the sun out of your eyes, gives your face a little shade & most importantly makes sure you don't get a burnt scalp- ouch! Trilby's need not apply, stetsons are mandatory here!

ASOS £16 here

2. Bikini
I always like to take two for mixing up tan lines. Usually one for lounging & one for swimming/snorkeling. Though Gossard have me addicted to their 'Hello buoys' Egoboost swimwear, personally recommended to make you look more like a lingerie model than a bikini babe! It comes in 3 colours of which I sadly have 2 already :)

ASOS: About £60 for the bikini & £50 for the suit

3. Flip flops/flats
Have you ever tried walking through sand in stilettos? Me either- flip flops or jellies all the way :)
ASOS £25

ASOS  £22

4. Shorts
 For when you want to be a little more active or casual than a dress or skirt would let you.

ASOS £10

ASOS  £20

5. Sunglasses
I tend towards designer look a likes for holidays, sand, suncream and neglect usually make sure whatever I take has been trashed by the end of the trip!

ASOS £10 

ASOS £12

6. Beach bag
Why does the amount of stuff you have to lug around with you triple as soon as you touch down in another country? Must therefore be huge.

ASOS (Was £60) Now £30

7. Tshirt
Handy for covering up from the sun or pair with shorts & heels/flats for another outfit.

ASOS £16

ASOS £32

8. Dresses
One short, one long. Dress up with heels and down with flats.

TopShop £30 

ASOS £120

9. Wedges
Comfy enough to dance all night in! 

Holiday ready!!!
