A Pretty Little Thing Holiday Haul

England is actually hot and has been for a good couple of weeks. It's quite a big rarity here in the UK so I've been making the most of my summer wardrobe and wearing it as much as possible as well as adding to it. The more summer clothing I add the longer it will stay hot and sunny right? So with that idea in mind I went full blown over on PrettyLittleThing and ran to the Holiday Shop because nothing screams summer like a bit of summer holiday shopping and pretending to plan that Santorini or Italian holiday in your head. But in reality I'll just be swanning around Brighton Beach in these gorgeous pieces.

PrettyLittleThing very kindly allowed me to pick some pieces that would help me create my summer wardrobe for the season and honestly I took so long scrolling through, mostly because their was just too much choice and I wanted it all. However the pieces I decided on I am in love with!

The first outfit I went for was this gorgeous striped two piece. Now I have recently decided to change my whole look on instagram as I want something a little more sophisticated and what better way to start than by picking a clothing colour palette. As I was searching through I stumbled through this and ticked three of the colours all in one outfit, Jackpot!

 With a cute tie front top and a simple mini pencil skirt you can really create a summer vibe with all the gorgeous neutral tones. There is just something about this top that has me feeling quite outgoing and I love how I can continue to get that bikini tan as I wonder around or sip a few drinks or even just forget a bikini and head to the beach. I also was kindly sent these sliders which have actually received lots of compliments. I feel western vibes are making a return and these simple sliders with a western buckle are a perfect way to incorporate that trend, plus still hitting the colour palette. One thing I do recommend is sizing up for the top if you are a little larger in the breast area and just staying your normal size for the skirt, which FYI wear nude underwear with because it is a little see through, but who really minds when an outfit is this cute?

 The next holiday outfit is this gorgeous bardot. Blue being another colour I want in my wardrobe I opted for this colour although they do so many colours. I paired it with a white denim skirt and a black bag and sandal as well as adding this gorgeous layered necklace, I am all about gold jewellery for summer especially if you have that golden tan I just love it! But this blue bardot is stunning. With two tie up details (be careful of a little too much nip) and a cute off the shoulder detail which again before for the summer. I just think it's perfect and something nice about it if you're not all for showing your arms.

Now this two piece and I semi turned into a dress. I got a size too big and perhaps it's because you can tie the two shoulders so could just do with a tightening but because it felt so baggy I styled it with a belt to pull it all in and give me a little shape so if you want to wear it as proper separates I suggest buying down a size from your usual. But again in keeping with the colour palette I want hints of reds and things in my wardrobe too. Again I styled it with black accessories and the sliders just to pull all together and the western vibes with my belt and sliders. Nailing that trend I feel.

Lastly is this outfit. The most simple of them all, but nonetheless no less cute. Just a simple stone colour crop top and some black denim shorts. I ordered this crop top in a size medium and thank god as I don't think it would have covered much if I had got it in my size. I probably would have sized up again if I had known how cropped it was just because I'm not a huge fan of my tummy as you can tell. (signing up for the gym this evening) and with the shorts I would have sized down because they really are MOM style and I have turned them up to make them a little shorter. However if I can get that toned tummy I will definitely be wearing this to a festival we have planned in August because I know I can do silly things and not worry about flashing. Plus it's uber comfortable with that knitted vest.

Also this is a quick introduction to my new hair! As you can see in my first ones, my hair is a different colour and I've gone for a blonde balayage! Which I am still getting used to but beginning to love!

That's it for my holiday and the beginnings of a strict wardrobe colour palette which is fine by me. I'm so glad that the weather is still warm enough for these pieces. But to be fair you could wear the tops with jeans if the weather is cooler. But regardless I will be wearing these pieces throughout the summer and continue that whole holiday vibe.
