Resort & Swimwear

Friday, 24 April 2015


This post is a wish list with a rather different theme to what I usually put together. Recently I have been a lot more focused on healthy living including food and exercise. So when I was approached by Heidi Klein to take at look at their items it couldn't have been a more fitting time. A work colleague and I are starting swimming soon at a local pool to loose a bit of weight and to keep healthy. So with that being said I browsed Heidy Klein for some swimwear and resort clothing I could wear comfortably when out of my comfort zone!
It's fair to say I tend to stick to nautical styles as I think the stripes can actually be super flattering, especially when you are bottom heavy and need a boost on the bust! My favourite item in the stripe swimming costume as it covers the tummy. The light weight garments are perfect for Spring/Summer days to wear to work before swimming for ease and comfort in changing by the pool. I'm excited to start this next week and hopefully come back with some positive updates on here. Are you doing anything to help yourself feel more healthy? If so i'd love to know.

Sun, smiles and bright embroidery

asos bright embroidered kimono

My weekends are like one big blur!! I have been cramming lots in every week and living in London means there is always something I want to do or someone to see. This weekend gone I found myself free of plans, and after being poorly in the week I welcomed the lazy one ahead. My beautiful friend Adora came to visit my new home, for a lazy days or chatting and crafty magazine reading. It was great to see her and take photos for our blogs in the sunshine.

My outfit really makes me smile, whilst I was wearing it and now whilst editing this post. The kimono is one I brought from an Asos sample sale recently, it only cost me £10 and I couldn't be happier with it. All it needed was a neutral top and my trusty Tophop Leah jeans. Pretty embroidered items like this instantly add a statement of colour and texture to any look and for Summer this would look great over a classic white dress. Adora and I enjoyed wandering around in the sun, popping to the local shops and I got to show her around where I live. It was the perfect day that really cheered me up!

Vintage denim dress

denim dress vintage

Recently, I have started going to car boot sales again and picking up some amazing bargains. I tried out the Wimbledon one which was fairly small but full of good bargains. I found a few things including this denim dress i'm wearing in the photos. It's great when on a budget to buy fashion at such a low price and to possibly be the only one wearing one like it.

Denim is everywhere at the moment on the high street, and a lot of bloggers have featured denim items recently. This dress cost me £1 and I was worried it wouldn't fit, but too my surprise the stretchy fabric fit like a dream. I love the longer length skirt and collar as think it makes it that little bit different to the high street ones, showing that its vintage. I wore a black belt around my waist to hold it in slightly and to go with my black tights and shoes. Such an easy ensemble but one i'm sure to be seen more in during Spring.
