And you will go to Mykonos.

I went to Mykonos about 4 weeks ago now (where does the time go?!) and whilst I definitely didn't take advantage of the beautiful scenery for blog shots (I was too busy taking it all in with my actual eyes...), I did squeeze in a couple of shots that I thought I would share. 

Dress - Asos
Headband - River Island (similar here)
Sunglasses - Primark

This dress was a bit of a life saver in the Greek heat, really lightweight and breathable, not to mention the fact it perfectly conceals the  unavoidable food babies that come with over indulging in Souvlakis and ice cream. Am now salivating as I type...

Also, for anyone that may be considering going to Mykonos - DO IT. Seriously beautiful, with fantastic beaches, and great bars and restaurants. Although take plenty of dollar, all that Mykonian goodness don't come cheap. 

Yia!! (as they say in Greece)

Gimme, Gimme, Gimme... Beachwear!

So in exactly 7 weeks today I am off to Las Vegas babbbyyyyyyy!!! And what does an upcoming holiday in Las Vegas mean? New clothes, obviously. I have been reliably informed that my standard (somewhat slovenly) pool look - hair piled on head, flip flops, some form of non-descript throw on - will just not cut it in Vegas, so I have been on the hunt for some bright, vaguely glamorous beach wear. Here are some of my favourite finds...

Headband - River Island   Cocoon dress - River Island   Kimono - Forever 21
Sunglasses - Asos   Heels - My 1st Wish   Head chain - Miss Selfridge
Kaftan - Matalan   Striped bikini - Cos   Tropical print bikini - River Island

I always think River Island is great for affordable and colourful, statement beachwear, and with this weeks Grazia including a 25% off at River Island it would be rude not to pick up a few pieces, don't you agree?

I also want to give a shoutout to a new discovery of mine (I'm probably completely late to the party), a website called My 1st Wish. OH THE SHOES!!! I feel like I have been transported to clodhopper heaven. 

Anyway, enough for now. I have got a couple of outfit posts from my rather lovely holiday in Mykonos to share with you over the next week or 2, and I am going to apologise now (although I'm not really sorry) for the amount of Las Vegas references/ blog posts/ general jibber jabber that may appear on this blog over the next 7 weeks. 

Have a good weekend :)
