So the first summer bank holiday has come and gone and we are getting close to the longest day of the year but with the longer nights, rising temps and the constant “getting bikini ready” <urgh> feeds on my instagram – I thought it was time to do a holiday edit.

I love the sun – the heat on my skin, vitamin D soaking into my bones and the sound of the kids in the garden squealing with delight with the hose on – makes me happy. The thought of one or two weeks quality time away from the day to day also makes me happy….

Every year, I like to update my summer wardrobe without breaking the bank (the holiday does that enough!) so I like to pick pieces that double down, take me from sand and sun to poolside and bar….

Here are my favourite pieces to bring the sunshine in :


  • Straw clutch – H&M
  • Striped beach bag – Next
  • Pom pom fedora – Next
  • Crossover fringe sandals – Top Shop
  • Pointy Espadrilles – Top Shop
  • Straw Fedora – Top Shop

  • Lace bed shorts – Top Shop
  • Striped shorts with belt – Zara
