A week before a payday, I torment myself by scouring online at websites that contain products/clothes I can not afford until payday the following week. The week leading up to payday always feels like the longest week ever! I go to Mexico in June, so I think it is about time the annual summer holiday shopping began!
As soon as payday came, I made a cheeky online River Island order, as you do. I love River Island, especially during the summer months. They do gorgeous clothes, bikinis and accessories.
River Island; Bikini Top £12.00
River Island; Bikini Bottoms £10.00
As soon as I saw this bikini, I knew I had to add it to my collection. I love buying new bikinis.. they are a major part of my holiday shopping. I loved the navy and shimmery orange stripes on this, the top also came with a halterneck strap attached, but I never really use them, as I don’t really like strap marks. I can never get rid of them! It also came with the gold RI logo.
River Island; Tank Top £10.00
I love comfy tank tops, and also love the colour of this! Love the curved hem and sleeveless design. It is very loose, perfect for the warm days. I’ll team this with my denim shorts, straw trilby and my rose gold spiked statement necklace for a laid back evening look on holiday.
River Island; Lace Panel Top £22.00
I first noticed this tank top in Glasgow, but I held back and put it back on the rack, strong I know!! However, when I got home, I added it to my online basket. It is a gorgeous white tank with lace panels.
It fastens with large white buttons, all up the back on the top. I think it will add a lovely girly edge, revealing just a few flashes on skin.
I don’t really own any simple stud earrings, so when I noticed these for £1.50, I couldn’t really moan. I picked up some simple gold tone cross and peace signs studs.
Crochet Kaftan £7.
I am after some cover ups for on holiday, things just to throw over my bikini. So when I noticed this coral kaftan/dress, I popped it into my basket. It is really light and I love the gorgeous print. I thought it was quite a bargain for £7 and it doesn’t feel cheap! It tightens at the waist with a rope fastening which has off white and gold beads at the end.
I always pick up a pair of cheap Primark flip flops for by the pool on the holiday, they just get wet and grubby, so for a £1 I can’t grumble and they just go in the bin when our holiday is over. I thought these were quite funky with the different coloured aztec print.
Miss Selfridge: Denim Shorts £32.00
My brother got me a £20 Debenhams voucher for Christmas, and whilst my thought was to rush to the make up counters, obviously, I decided to opt for some clothing for my holiday. Whilst on a trip to Trafford Centre with Aaron, we popped into Debenhams where I knew they had a Miss Selfridge counter. As soon as I saw these shorts, I knew I had to have them. With the gorgeous cream crochet hem and distressed patches on the denim, they’ll look great on holiday with a bit of a tan. Debenhams actually has 20% off when I went in, so I got them for £25.60, so with my voucher I actually only had to pay £5.60, not bad for a lovely pair of shorts!!
