With my holiday being only a couple of weeks away, my swimwear collection has been growing rapidly. I've opted for a fairly versatile beach wardrobe this year but with the exception of this gorgeous bikini from the Treasure Chest Accessories. 

The bikini is a classic bandeau style with 'covering' bottoms and a detachable strap to make it halterneck if you wish. The large hibiscus flowers embellishing the front are such a lovely feature. I brought a size 8 and it fits perfectly, flattering my figure due to the flowers drawing attention away from my stomach - I'm not sure if I'm more addicted to the colours or unique style, but its gorgeous! I can't wait to wear on the beach with a cocktail in hand but for now you've got alternative snaps as the beach is three weeks away!

This outfit is by far one of my most worn of the moment. I'm a huge fan of the subtle bohemian touches to my wardrobe when it gets to this time of year, and this jumper fits the bill perfectly. Despite being half-sleeved, its so cool, lightweight and the crochet is enough to be an outfit feature so styling is simple! I actually think it could double as a beach cover up too - how adorable over a bright bikini with some high leg strapped sandals!? (just you wait, there will definitely be an outfit for that).

I decided to team it with some high waisted white shorts, as the monochrome contrast aded a little more to the look. These shorts are fairly 'bum revealing' but I love that about them *insert peach emoji here*. They make my legs look so much longer than they actually are and at 5ftnothing - this is a must when you hate being small.

I've actually featured this look alongside a few others in a Festival Lookbook over on my YouTube channel, if you're looking for festival (or even just summer) inspiration!



A few weeks ago I made a spontaneous trip to Bournemouth with my friend Char, back in the short lived British heatwave. Admittedly, there was slight sunburn but we had so much fun messing around in the sea and acting like children. This is the first time that I had been to Bournemouth but it felt like being abroad and not an hour down the motorway!
