British Summertime

Hola amigos! Are we currently in Spain or somethin’? Hasn’t this weekend been an absolute scorcher. If I’m totally honest I’ve spent most of the weekend in the garden catching some rays in as little clothing as possible. In true British spirit, the sun came out and the bikini and BBQ were very firmly on, and a chilled weekend soaking up vitamin D was exactly what the doctor ordered. 

Bardot tops, culottes and stripes are just a few of my favourite things. Missguided merged the lot into a jumpsuit and I am obsessed. As a tall gal, jumpsuits either work for or they don’t as they can be a little short but this one fits perfectly and is the ultimate chuck-on-and-go outfit. I’m not one for ruffles, but I quite like them on this. This is basically the best thing I own at the moment, and a great fancy outfit to wear as things start to get a little toasty. Nice one, Missguided. (Jumpsuits, however, are all fun and games until you need a wee, amirite?)

I love the jumpsuit paired with heels, like these super cute wedges from a few years ago, or flat sandals. I’ll definitely be packing this for my summer hols – the perfect outfit for geting on and off a boat in!

What I’m wearing

Jumpsuit – Missguided | Shoes – Marco Tozzi via Gemini | Bag – Accessorize | Sunglasses – Oliver Bonas

Speaking of holidays – I am very much counting down the days. Less than a month YAS. I’m going sailing in Greece with my family again, and this time my friend Anna is coming along for the ride. I can’t bloody wait. Mainly because Anna is fantastic at taking photos (of me). Secondly because I had the sickening realisation the other day that I’ve not had a week off work since Christmas. So to say that this holiday is much needed is a bit of an understatement. I need a week of complete switch off.

It’s been a whole year since I was in Paris and Amsterdam which hold a few bittersweet memories. It’s definitely my aim to go back to Amsterdam this year or next, I fell head over heels in love with it. There’s a fair few European cities on my list at the moment, so I think it’s high time I probably stopped saving my holidays days from work and book a trip somewhere…

I hope you’ve all had a gorgeous weekend and enjoyed the weather! xo

    • Thanks Aliya, not long now! It is indeed – though the last spell we had was a bit too hot – tried to wear as little possible then! x

    Beautiful post! x

  • Such a beautiful jumpsuit! I really need to buy one. I’m still struggling with the bardot tops, I am just such a fail with strapless bras!

    • Would highly recommend M&S if you struggle to find one!! Or you could cheat and get one with clear straps! x
