It feels like summer has definitely arrived and I am super excited to get to swap my dark jeans and cardigans of winter for pretty pastels and swimwear pieces.
A perfect example is my new wrap around I recently got from Debenhams. I’ve worn it so much since I received it and that was only a week ago. Apart from it obviously being really easy to throw on over a bikini it also comes into its own as a kimono style top and which I wore with denim shorts to a bbq over the weekend and got myself a lot of complements. It’s super cosy and easy to put on and because of the material and slits in the sleeves it makes it really breathable to wear.
I am off to Croatia next week where I cannot wait to get some proper Mediterranean style sunshine but of course before any summer holiday comes the summer holiday bikini preparation. This for me is one of the most fun parts of going away at all. So I have been investigating: This coral bikini (also from Debenhams) is in my opinion absolutely gorgeous. The colour of this bikini is really perfect for when you get a tan as the coral colour will really stand out against your new sun kissed glow. If you follow me on instagram @emmacorriehill you’ll be seeing more photos of me in this bikini soon (hopefully when Croatia has turned me a little more bronzed). Block colour bikinis are really classy and easy to pair with accessories and I can’t wait to put on a big hat, wedges and some jewellery and then find myself a beach club.
As for make up – I love having a bronzed glowy look when wearing swimwear and in this blog post I am wearing Benifit Hoola. It’s a matt bronzer which is perfect for not making you look too shinny or like you’re wearing too much make up, which can easily happen on hot and sticky days. For me I will always avoid face products with a shimmer on sunny days.Furthermore I love that this bronzer comes in a super cute travel mini size – I can easily put this in my hand luggage 😊.
Overall, I loved feeling summery in this look and it’s got me really looking forward to dressing in cute summery bikinis and outfits over the next few months.
