Holiday essentials…

Ok, so bear with me, I will be boring you to death with a series of holiday posts. I hope they prove useful if you’re heading off anywhere this year (or if the weather here decides to get it’s act together!) 
I thought I’d compile a list of a few bit’s I found invaluable whilst away!
First up is a turban headband. Forever wanting to be Margot from the Good Life, there is nothing better than donning a kaftan and turban and swanning round the pool. I picked this one up from ASOS

As a short haired chick, my post-swim hair isn’t quite as glamorous as those tousled beach curls all the magazines go on about. My hair looks rather more like a tousled rats nest. So; turban to the rescue! Priced at £6 this was a lifesaver throughout the holiday and I think I’ve found my lazy hair day solution for the summer!
Next up is this cute crochet cover up from Yours Clothing. I wore this to death in the day time over my cossie. I tended to team mine with floral trousers or denim cut-offs. 
Messy bedroom, cute top. 

A versatile pair of sandals are on my necessity list and I stumbled upon these ones whilst doing my weekly shop in Sainsburys. 

Easily dressed up or down, I love the black and white weaved pattern and found them really comfortable. 
And finally, we all know my deep love for big jewellery and this cutie was just screaming to be bought and paraded in the glorious Kos sunshine and wore it practically every night. I picked it up from a company called Beautique’s Boutique
Necklace – Beautique’s Boutique// Palm Tree Dress – New Look// Prescription Sunglasses – Specspost
They have an awesome range of stunning costume jewellery, all reasonably priced too. This was £20 and worth every penny, It’s really substantial yet lightweight and the mix of colours is just gorgeous. Swoooooon. 
So there you have it. Just some of my favourite holiday picks. I’ve got some outfit posts coming up, a guest post from the hubs and some wish list posts coming up this week, so lots to be getting on with! It’s good to be back gang!
