Our wedding seems to be coming round at the speed of light now (three weeks to go!) and we’ve pretty much sorted the majority of things, and ticked most jobs off the to-list until its time to go and set up at the venue the day before, so naturally my thoughts are now turning towards our honeymoon! We haven’t got round to booking anything as of yet, but we’re hoping to get a last minute break and be jetting off to Cuba (funds permitting) in a couple of months time.
Its a place I’ve wanted to visit for a long while now as it just seems to be the perfect mix of sunshine and relaxation, with plenty of culture thrown in for good measure. I absolutely love to lounge around on the beach or by the pool with a good book and an all inclusive cocktail, but I’m also always keen to explore and immerse myself in to the culture and surroundings. Cuba is so well known for its colourful capital, Havana, which is somewhere we will definitely be spending some time, so obviously my holiday wish list had to be full of bright hues and fun prints! Here’s a selection of pieces I’m obsessing over right now!
Orange Sandals // Lip Print T Shirts // Jungle Print Bikini Top // Jungle Print High Waisted Bikini Briefs // Striped Swimsuit // Round Sunglasses // Taupe Striped Shorts // Gingham Check Dress // Cargo Shorts // Multicoloured Basket Bag // Green Double Buckle Sandals
Micro Knit Stripe Top // Yellow Mule Sandals // Multicoloured Sequin Bag // Nude Sunglasses // Spot Print Jumpsuit // Whispy Floral Print Midi Skirt // Metallic Floral Jacquard Mini Dress // Yellow Stripe Camisole Top // Yellow Stripe Frill Shorts // Bardot Frill Swimsuit // Embroidered Basket Bag
Peony Button Down Shirt // Cat Eye Sunglasses // Velvet Block Heel Sandals // Net Tote Bag // Peach & Love T Shirt // Mom Fit Denim Shorts // Halterneck Scallop Edge Swimsuit // Pink Stripe Trousers // Spot Print Camisole Top // Flat Natural Sandals
So as you can see, in true Claire style, there is a lot of colour to take in here. I love having bold shades in my wardrobe, but when you’re in a sunny country on your holidays, you can really go to town on the brights! I’m loving bold swimwear with fun prints, complimented with statement flat sandals and straw basket bags for beach days, paired with casual short and tee combos for exploring the tourist attractions. Then when it comes to the evenings, I love to dress up on holiday and make an effort for dinner and drinks, so I’ll be turning to wide leg trouser and camis, or pretty little dresses and co-ords paired with some heeled sandals and yet another bright statement bag.
Get me to Cuba already!!
I’d love to hear where you’re heading for your holidays this year and what items are on your summer wish list!
