Coral dress & statement necklace

 Dress - Ad Lib Girl
Shoes - Dolcis
Necklace - Rosa Red Jewellery

If there's one bad thing about the sunshine at the moment (I can't even believe I'm going to say there's anything bad about the sunshine...) it's that it makes it so damn hard to take good blog photos! Honestly, I spend half of my time moaning about how it's too rainy to take photos in Manchester, and then when it is sunny it's just as difficult!

I've been wearing this dress loads lately - it's perfect for work when the sun's out and I've been wanting to blog about it for ages. I was surprised how much I loved the colour too! It's perfect with some statement jewellery and a pair of heels to dress it up for more of an occasion too (I didn't wear these rose-gold shoes when I wore it to work, obvs!) I'm loving this statement bling from Rosa Red Jewellery - it's my new stop for bejewelled necklaces, you have to check it out! These are my last blog pics with my old hair, this weekend I braved the hairdressers and got a fringe - I'll  be taking some outfit snaps this week to show you all, or check out my instagram for a sneak preview! What do you think of today's outfit?

Swimwear Style #2

Bikini - Motel Rocks
Sunglasses - Rayban

Another swimwear look for you today - I'm not really sure how I feel about posting these on the internet, but this Motel bikini was too awesome not to blog about! I love the retro highwaisted design mixed with the psychadelic paisley print, it makes for some seriously cool poolside style! 

I'm off to Lovebox tomorrow so follow me on instagram for updates while I'm away from blogging for the weekend! Ican't wait - especially with this heatwave we're having! Is anyone else heading to a festival this weekend?

Swimwear style #1

 Bikini - Freya
Sandals - Primark
Sunglasses - eBay

When you're shopping for a Summer holiday, it's really easy to underestimate how much of a difference it can make to have a really good bikini. I mean, when you can pick one up at Primark for a couple of quid, it's tempting to go for bargain price over quality. Back in the day, my cousin and I used to compete over who brought more bikinis on holiday and my case would be over-flowing with cheapo triangle bikinis that would unsurprisingly fall apart/fade/shrink/go out of shape after a couple of dips in the pool. In the last couple of years though, this has all changed and I'm pretty sure it's down to the face that I dsicovered Freya and their amazing bikinis. I've actually worn (and blogged) about old-season versions of this same style on my last two holidays (in Ibiza here, and Cyprus here) and I couldn't resist getting another this year in the newest print! The fit is amazing, the quality is great and the print and colour are basically holiday perfection. After years of tying on flimsy triangle bikinis and living in fear of the nip-slip, it's a bit of a revelation to have a bikini that I can feel totally comfortable in!

Glastonbury outfit #3

Shorts & Cami Co-Ordinate Set - Motel
Birkenstock Sandals - Primark
Heart Sunglasses - eBay

As you might have guessed, I shot these photos on my holiday to Turkey last week (just look at that blue sky!) I've been waiting for the opportunity to wear this Motel co-ord set ever since it arrived at my door and the sunny pavements, winding backstreets and quirky markets of Turgutreis where I was staying proved to be the perfect place! I'm packing this outfit into my Glastonbury rucksack as I type (this post is scheduled, incase that confuses you!) and I can't wait to give it a second outing - fingers crossed it's as sunny as these photos when I wear it this time around eh?
