I posted earlier this month about how the high street is beginning to bring out the spring/summer items, and I couldn't resist picking up a few bits myself. Unfortunately I don't have a holiday booked until September (so far away!) but I thought I'd make some early purchases as I hate missing out on things and regretting not buying them and then they sell out!
I'm very pear shaped and so I hate having to strip off on the beach or pool when I'm away. I have big thighs and a tummy which looks best covered up. Therefore finding a bikini with a high waist is very important to me. Luckily I found this flattering floral high waisted bikini on Ali Express.
It has a push up halterneck bikini top that ties up at the back, and high waisted full briefs which have flattering printed side panels. I really love the pretty floral print which gives it a summer feel and a pop of colour.
If you haven't used Ali Express before, they're an Asian online marketplace where you can buy things from China dirt cheap! This bikini was only about £6 including postage. The only things to note though is that delivery tends to take around 3 weeks, and the sizing is Asian and therefore very small. This set is an XL which is a UK 12-14, but they go up to XXXL!
Since getting laser eye surgery in 2015 I absolutely love having the freedom to wear any sunglasses rather than having to specially order prescription sunglasses. I like wearing big frames and this pair of Marc Jacobs sunglasses are perfect for wearing on the beach.
This vintage style pair from perfectglasses.co.uk have black cat eye frames and come with dark brown lenses and have the Marc Jacobs logo embossed in gold on each arm. Perfect Glasses is one of the largest online providers of high quality and designer glasses online. I can't wait for the sun to come out for spring so I can wear my new sunnies!
Can you believe this beautiful 'Mermaid Hair Don't Care' colourful beach towel is only £4.50 in Primark?! I love having a pretty beach towel on holiday and I like an eye catching one so that I can recognise my sun spot, and this one is so bright!
I tend to wear sandals all summer, even in the UK, and they usually wear out pretty quickly. Therefore I buy a couple of new pairs of sandals each year, and Primark do they best sandals and shoes! This pair of flat black plaited sandals are only £4 and I hope they bring out some other colours as I really like this style!
