Things I wish I had for holiday

Things I wish I had for holiday

So you may have gathered from recent posts, I am on my holidays..whoop! Thought I would do a quick wishlist of a few items I owed I had packed in my suitcase for the trip.

These Blue Sandals caught my eye, love my black havianas (they are the most reliable flipflops I ever owned-I literally wore my first pair every day for a year when I was in Australia and they lasted!) but these are soo pretty and nicer with a dress.

The Marc Jacobs bag caught my eye as it would be amazing bag for the beach or perhaps for sunbathing/cocktails on a yacht.

While picking a polish to paint my toes I realized I don’t have a hot hot pink in my collection anymore. I love Essie and this one caught my eye.

I am not a confident swimsuit wearer, in fact I hate it! The dresses included are those I think are perfect to throw on over a swimsuit if you want to go to the bar/leave the pool area. I tend to pop one of these on while sitting on loungers too. I do not tan and would rather look like a  beached whale in a dress then a rather red lobster! (Black/White one, Flowery one/Blue one)

Ever since I had my bag stolen on holiday, I always  travel with a ‘holiday purse’ as replacing everything in your everyday wallet is a very long process and loosing all you wee bits (like ticket stumps etc) makes you cry. I though this Kate Spade purse with ‘Anything to declare’ across the front is beautiful in it simplicity.

Finally, I thought these two passport covers were so pretty. I love passport covers, don’t know why. I do feel that you can only own one at once though and I do have a rather lovely one right now….but maybe for next holidays. Black and White one looks  so stylish, I think the Kate Spade Happily ever after one is technically meant to be wedding related but the unmarried can live happily ever after to no?

Normal service/posts will resume when I am back but hope you like this one all the same even is different from the now.

OOTD- Date Night

OOTD

Valentines Day Outfit for dinner and drinks.

Thought I would share with you my outfit for my date with my boyfriend for Valentines.  We went out for dinner to  lovely little place  that does great food but is not super fancy so no black tie required!  I wanted something which was nice but not all out party dress. I had been trying to avoid red as hate a cliché but decided that I love this dress/wanted to wear it so who cares! 🙂

The dress was bought on sale in House of Fraser a month or so ago . It is one of those dresses that you instantly love when you try it on because it suits your body (well mine anyway) perfectly. I have also found it to  really versatile, it can be worn for drinks or teamed with leggings/boots & a cardigan for a casual afternoon in the pub.

On Friday, I added black tights and black Kurt Geiger heels to make it ready for a night out.  Hummed and hayed about the handbag- love my Mulberry Clutch holds everything you really need on a regular night out but it lacks the space for packing away winter warmers that are required at this time of year, but in the end style won over practical considerations!

 Heart Necklace

Finished the outfit with a necklace made from a Vinyl record that I picked up at a craft fair in Edinburgh. Added simple bracelets and  owl  stud earrings from Accessorize for a wee bit more bling. Included what I had on my nails in Sunday’s post if you are interested.

Had a wonderful evening, fab bottle of Merlot, yummy food at dinner and then a few drinks in the Irish bar. Only downside was the rain, hair was ruined travelling from  my flat to the restaurant! The perils of Scottish weather, oh to live in a sunnier climates!

Let me know if you like OOTD type posts from me, as I can do more or less!
