Pick your beach tribe…

15 May

This week’s Heat magazine has got me thinking…

It’s exactly three weeks today til I jet off on my jolly hols to Majorca (I am counting down the days…), and there’s a really cute piece in Heat about summer style, which has got my thinking about my holiday wardrobe.

There are three key looks here…

Colourful hipster (represented by the amazing Solange Knowles)

Park Avenue Princess (Olivia Palermo – you know how much I love her!)

Boho Babe (Rachel Bilson)

I would’ve put myself as more of an Olivia or a Rachel, but, as I sat on the bus home today, a sighting in the window of Primark made all my decisions for me… Unbelieveably, it’s a rucksack!

I’ve decided this little beauty is going to be my new beach bag – gone are the giant roomy sacks I’ve carried to the beach in the past. This is multi-functional, an amazing colour, and totally nails the hipster 90s trend. So now I’m looking for some cute fluoro and 90s pieces to add to my holiday wardrobe.

I’ve been thinking a loose crop top might be the perfect cover up. I’d never normally walk around with my stomach exposed (we’re not exactly talking washboard here!), but, for holidays, I think it’d be great for keeping my shoulders covered (I’m a factor-50 girl!), while still looking cool and beachy. I like these bargains from New Look…
