Outfit Post: Sea Mint

Mint Outfit Post, Summer Outfit, Boho Outfit, Outfit Of The Day

Hello friends! I’m back from my vacation to Lanzarote.. sadly and not sadly. It was a beautiful island with glorious rock beaches to clamber on and the freshest, turquoise sea. I wasn’t too sad to leave after a week, though, as the intense sun rays blazing just off the coast of Africa burned me and my travel companions to a crisp. Be extra, extra careful if you take a trip out there! I’m also super excited to get back to work, as usual… hehe, geek!

This dress is actually a strapless cut, which is sadly very unflattering on me! The print and the comfortable, forgiving elasticated waist outweighed the cons, though, so all I had to do was find something to cover up the unsightly under-arm-flab ;) I started wearing this with a cute mint cardigan I’ve had for about 10 years (still going strong!) and I’ve also worn it with a band tee tied in a knot at the waist. This little crop from Free People is the absolute perfect choice for Summer and the scalloped edging is really flattering – I want one in every colour! If I do well on sales between now and Christmas I’m going to treat myself to either the copper or black.


Seafood Platter

On this particular night we headed out early evening, had a drink opposite these gorgeous mint coloured boats and wandered along the front to find a lovely restaurant. We ordered their fish of the day platter for five (there were five of us, we weren’t just insanely hungry!) and sank a few glasses of wine while we looked out over the harbour. Then this enormous mass of mussels, king prawns, calamari, sea bass and parrot fish arrived. Whaaaat. We finished it though, what can I say? ;) There’s nothing quite like eating fresh seafood while looking out at the edge of the ocean.

Outfit Post: Fifties Fiesta

Fifties Style, Rockabilly, Swimsuit

It feels slightly strange to be posting these while I’m snuggled on the sofa in my cardi’ with my hottie, but for those going on a ‘winter sun’ holiday they might give you some ideas. I really wanted to get one of these gorgeous swimsuits from ModCloth but, with my impending dive into freelance mere weeks away, I decided I needed to be more careful with my money so I opted for this fifties style swimsuit from George at ASDA. I’ve always thought that their underwear fit my shape really well for the price and this costume was no exception, so I wasn’t too disappointed I chose the cheaper option.

Fifties, Rockabilly Style Swimsuit

I’m not a big swimwear fan – I don’t like beach holidays and I spend the entire time feeling very self conscious so it’s been rather an exercise in confidence to firstly pose for these photos by the pool (in front of people, argh!) and then actually publish them for all you lovely folk to see. Opting for this Rockabilly style is a great way to dress for the beach while still feeling fun instead of exposed. It’s super easy; just go for polka dot or gingham check patterns and a mismatch of black, red, blue and white. Cherry and apple prints work well too! Of course I don’t recommend the jewellery for sunbathing if you want to avoid a weird tan ;) but it’s fine for going out for breakfast!
