Holiday Blues

Let's face it, in the UK we only get about 10 warm and sunny days without any rain and most of them are spent in work. One of the problems with our climate and always feeling the cold is that there are lots of trends and clothes that I don't get to wear because I get too chilly. I often see the jumper with shorts look in magazines and blogs but all I can think about is the dreaded leg draft that I would have to put up with if I wore such an outfit. I might love fashion but I'm also pretty practical and hate being uncomfortable. Therefore, I'm often covered up.

With this in mind, I thought that my recent holiday to Spain would be a great opportunity to wear some of my summer pieces. Sadly, I was wrong. The weather was much better than it's been in England but a breeze that was typically unusual for this time of year left me shivering. It was a nice break from work and lovely to see my Grandparents who live there but I couldn't help but feel disappointed. Here are my attempts at some summery outfits...
Top: Forever 21, Skirt: Primark (both bought last summer)

Shirt: Forever 21, Jeans: Zara
Top: Forever 21, Trousers: Primark (past season)

Dress: Miss Selfridge sale bargain last year

Dress: TK Maxx (Around £17)
Due to the weather, I haven't got much of a tan but my skin has gone from a milkbottle shade to a very milky coffee colour which is an improvement. I go back to work tomorrow so definitely have the holiday blues


  1. fav look has to be the blue trousers and monochrome top.


    1. Thanks Jen. The annoying thing about those trousers is they're too long and I have to always wear heels with them but I'm a flats kinda girl! x

  2. loooove the blue pants! really cool! if they're too long why not have them tailored? They're too awesome to leave in the wardrobe! xx

    1. Thanks, that might be worth doing. I just worry that because I'm short they'll swamp me without wearing heels! think I'll have to get used to wearing heels more often again. It's mad how when you don't wear them for a while you seem to lose the ability to walk in them! xx
