Hi guys! Happy Monday, I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I’m back in New York and excited to be properly back to work. As I mentioned over on my Snapchat recently (@Retroflame1) I have been doing lots of shopping over the past few weeks. I think once Summer comes around, I am always ready to completely re-vamp my wardrobe and invest in a few new pieces – especially if I have any holidays coming up. For my recent trip to Dubai, I did quite a lot of browsing online which can be an overwhelming task as there are so many nice things out there at the moment. Therefore, I thought it may be helpful to put some of my favourite things in a post for you guys to shop. If you are holiday outfit prepping or just looking for some new Summer outfits this post should give you some ideas and guidance…
Day wear definitely differs depending on what kind of a Summer holiday you are going on, for instance if it’s a city break you may want some cute tops like this gorgeous one from Forever 21 or if it is more of a relaxing holiday where you’ll be lounging by the pool, a nice playsuit like this one (I love the peplum detail!) for over your bikini would be perfect. Either way, I think you could definitely make any of the options below work…
For night time I always find light dresses so handy and easy to accessorize. They are always easy to pack and don’t take up too much room in the case which is a bonus. I absolutely love this powder blue option from pretty little thing (Those sleeves!!) I also always pack a jumpsuit & long dress for any summer holiday I go on because if you are like me & wear fake tan for holidays, I think they come in handy for the last night or two when the your tan may be going a little streaky. I really like this gingham printed one from Asos & below are lots of more stunning options…
Of course, on any Summer holiday – swimwear is a must. Luckily for us, brands have really been upping their game and there are lots of nice options out there at the moment. However, it can still be pretty time-consuming looking for ones that are a little different so I gathered a few options below for you guys. I love this gingham print swimsuit and these bikini bottoms & top from Asos are SO cute! (I may even purchase for my own next Summer trip)
SHOES & SUNGLASSES
…& last but not least, sandals and sunglasses which are two other necessities! I bought a pair of sandals similar to these black ones from River Island last year & I found them so handy! You all know how much I love my sunglasses so I am always on the lookout for nice ones all year around but especially coming into Summer. I recently bought these ones from Topshop and I am obsessed with how they look on – such a lovely shape.
I think that is pretty much everything covered! I really hope this helps you with your Summer shopping. I am so happy to finally be back to New York and I’m so excited for all the Summer fun to start here! Be sure to follow along on my Instagram (@retroflame) if you aren’t already, for daily updates! I hope you enjoy the rest of the week.
