FLORAL FROCKS

 
Dress - H&M, Sandals - Office

Did I show you all this dress when I went to Barcelonaaaa (I'm singing it in my head)? I bought it specifically for the trip with Roxy - I thought it was dressy enough in case I needed something a bit more 'dolled up', but also cute with casual sandals. Plus it put me well and truly back in touch with my girly side. Much needed. H&M is always my go-to when I'm in need of an outfit for something specific, that also won't mean I end up scrimping and saving for the rest of the month. I think this was around the £25 mark, so not bad for a little party frock.

The sandals are the pair I took on holiday last year and wore religiously - same happened this time round. They're just really comfy but they have got a bit of a heel to stop me feeling quite so short in the leg. If Office ever did a pair in black it'd be like the gods had spoken. 

Oh, and I am teetering on the edge of having had way too much sun here. Looking a little bit pink.. Clashing with the wall, y'know. That factor 50 goes in the suitcase and still you finish with skin that could create a heat source to warm up a full village.

BLACK BASICS WITH TRIANGL

Bikini Top - Triangl, Bikini Bottoms - eBay, Sunglasses - Ray Ban

What's a blogger's holiday without a Triangl bikini? Haha. Yup, I think every blogger and their grandma has one but they are rather nice. This is the second holiday I've taken one with me and I do like them for a bit of a 'special' kini. Y'know, the one to save for when you're really wanting to go all out with the beach outfit.

Like last year though I did swap the bottoms for a slightly comfier pair off eBay. They were about £3, that Brazillian sort of style that means minimal tanlines.. When in Greece right?! I do love the Triangl bikinis but for a full day sat in the sun I do find they're a wee but uncomfortable.

DETAILS: EVENINGS OUT


Bag - c/o Florian London, YSL Lipstick (the colour has rubbed off.. it's an oldie!), L'Oréal Nail Varnish (Beige Boheme), L'Oréal Super Liner

I always think it's nice when you're off out to have a few fancy accessories. I don't go 'out out' that often so when I do I like the full dressing up process. Bit of fake tan, a new lippy, shoes that make you feel a bit sassy, y'know? These days I'm also trying to get my nails done more often. For the amount of money I spend on nail varnish that chips off or a wonder treatment that doesn't actually work I might as well just go get them done all nice. I've had these on a couple of weeks now so they have grown out a bit.. I've just repainted them with the Beige Boheme to freshen them up too. I love a good nude nail.

With makeup I usually brave a bit of eyeliner when I'm going out. It's just too much for me to handle on a day to day basis.. How do people do it in a rush?! It takes me forever, along with plenty of masking tape, concealer & makeup remover. I just haven't got the knack, but the Super Liner is quite a nice one to say I'm crap at a cat flick. The brush isn't too fiddly for me to handle & I can just whip off the masking tape when I'm done to get a straight (ish) line.

Onto the bag. Ahhh it's so pretty. I haven't had a good going out bag for a while.. I'm usually that girl trying to stuff Mary Poppins clutter into a clutch. This one by Florian London is not only a little beauty but also has enough room for my excessive essentials to be carted along. Isn't it a lovely colour? Like a rosy-pink.. It looks so nice with rose gold! I'm going to save this for special occasions mainly. It's too nice for anything other than swish.

BEACH TROUSERS

 
Sunglasses - Ray Ban, Vest Top - Primark, Bag - New Look, Trousers - Forever 21

The holiday blog posts are here. I promise I won't drag it out too long - maybe a few evening outfits and favourite bikinis? I did take a lot of bikini pictures (when I'm old and wrinklier than a crumpled paper bag I do want a few pictures from the youth to show the grandkids), but when it came to evening outfits I was a bit of a flop - to be honest, I was so chilled out that it was easy to forget about taking pictures of everything. I think I needed that though!

I did take a few pictures when I was heading down to the beach - mostly these aren't the most stylish looks as I just throw on something comfy and cool. I wanted to show you these trousers though. Forever 21 makes my day you know. I've never ordered anything from them and disliked what I'd gone for. I always find it's really good value for the price. These trousers were around the £20 mark, are a really nice fit and I love the pattern. The only downside is that I could do with about 3 inches taking off the bottom.. Short leg problems.

A WEEK IN SKIATHOS


You know when you come home from holiday and you have that 'this time last week', 'this time two weeks ago' thing going on for god knows how long? Happening. Right now. And probably for the next month or so. Why do holidays have to go so quick?! You spend all these months with countdowns on your phone and then before you know it you're back on that plane sulking because your tan's peeling off (I feel like I was brown for all of 10 minutes..).

Even though I'm a bit grumpy that it's all done it doesn't take away from the fact that it was a loverrrly week. Greece was no worries - I know before we went we were a bit stressed about the situation there but everything was just as it had been the previous year and the people were equally just as lovely. I'm a big fan of Skiathos, it's not chaotic and overly commercialised, yet there's plenty to do and see. It's just right for a week of relaxing (I basically had two naps a day). These are just a few snaps from during the week - the odds & ends that don't really fit anywhere else. I've got quite a few holiday outfit posts coming so prepare yourselves for a wee bit of holiday spam!
