Today was an iffy day for me. It was one of those days where you feel completely and utterly down for no apparent reason. I think a lot of stuff had got on top of me that had been piling up, and add to that the fact that my dog Toby woke me up on my only day off until Saturday at 6am being sick (He ate lots during a barbecue last night). Safe to say I definitely got out of bed on the wrong side this morning. To cheer me up, Dan suggested we went to look round a few shops to get out of the house, so off we went, and this is what I wore:

Vest – H&M

Denim jacket – Primark

Skirt – Miss Selfridge

Belt – Primark

Wedges – Primark

(Please excuse the grey ish tone to my hair caused by dry shampoo, and the squinty face from the sun!) Dan bought me this skirt a few days back for our holiday, but I couldn’t resist wearing it. Its such a lovely cut and floaty chiffon fabric. Perfect for sunny days.

I didn’t pick up much when we went out. I got a bikini top in the Next sale that’s gorgeous. Its a blue bandeau with brown beading. I’ve got some bottoms in pretty much the same colour so I’ll be pairing it with those. Also got a sheer jumpsuit/beach cover up thing from Tesco, but when I got it home and tried it on, it looks horrendous on me so I’ll be taking that back tomorrow.

I’m counting down the days (33!) until we go to Rhodes at the end of next month. I need a holiday!

Where are you all going this year? Have you got any holiday sale bargains?

    Oh, I have those days. It's weird, isn't it? I'll wake up and feel depressed for no reason. Perhaps it's just hormones, haha. The perks of being a woman!
    Great outfit, I really love your skirt. So summery!
