As I’ve already mentioned in a previous post, I’ve just came home from a week’s family holiday away in Spain. It was a real spur of the moment decision, and with a wardrobe filled of coats and a very low budget, I had a rushed few weeks of trying to compile together some outfits to wear in the 37C heat that was forecast. And now I’m not being one to blow my own trumpet, but with very little money to spend, I think I did a pretty good job (although the same can’t be said about my fake tan l o l) – and I have many outfit posts coming your way over on this blog over the next few weeks which I’m excited to share with you.

Flared sleeves have been a real favourite of mine for the past year of so, and there hasn’t been a flared sleeve I haven’t been drawn to in a long long time (seriously though, like I want them all). And I think I may have just made one of the best discoveries yet in this TK Maxx Playsuit. I mean, just look at those sleeves – they’re insane, right?! It’s not a shop I normally shop for clothing (for homeware it’s a completely different story…) but with some time to kill, I thought I’d have a scout around the rails and I’m super happy to found this. A super versatile piece, with a simple change of shoe, this took me from day to night and had plenty of room for me eat all of the pasta dishes I could consume in one day which, let’s be honest, is a real selling point. Of course, it wouldn’t be one of my outfits without a hat – and sunny holidays call for straw hats, right? After picking up this in my local Primark on a total whim, I was a little hesitant over how much wear I’d get from it, but paired with this sunglasses, it was a match made in heaven.

So my question of today is, what are your summer holiday style staples?

    I love the playsuit and I'm sure the sleeves were perfect for the heat! Also really like the sandals… I wish I had more occasions to wear mine and buy more <3
