LAND OF THE HYDRANGEA



TWO PEICE: PRETTYLITTLETHING TOP/SKIRT - WHITE CLEATED SOLE SANDALS: PRETTYLITTLETHING - RED SILK SOCKS: TOPSHOP

My Nan and Grandads garden is currently full of these beautiful flowers called Hydrangea. They come in lots of different colours and apparently depending on the different types of soil you plant them in, they grow in different colours. Acid soil makes blue flowers and non acid soil makes pretty pink flowers! They're really popular in wales almost every house has them- I'm not sure why they're not more popular in England as they're super pretty! I've asked my mom to plant some in our garden along the wall so I can have a Hydrangea background wall to take photos against haha, although they may take a while to grow!

I thought these particular blue Hydrangea would be perfect to photograph this outfit against as the blue contrasts perfectly with the red in this full PLT outfit! This two piece is currently one of my favourite items, gingham is one of my favourite types of fabric/print, whenever I wear this two piece I feel like a walking picnic- in a good way of course! The top is especially my favourite as I've worn it three times in the past week already and I plan to wear it again pretty soon, maybe today, its so very tempting!

These shoes are very much like the popular cleated platform heels which everyone loves, but I feel that these are probably 100 times more practical. They've still got a chunky platform on them but compared to the other platform heels, I can actually walk in these and they're quite comfy! I love that they have little sandal gaps where my socks can show through, it reminds me of the shoes I used to wear when I was about three years old, but with giant platforms haha!

I WATCH HOW THE MOON SITS IN THE SKY IN THE DARK NIGHT, SHINING WITH THE LIGHT FROM THE SUN



CROP TOP: MOTEL ROCKS - SUN AND MOON PRINT SKIRT: HELLO MARGARET - CAT KIMONO: AX PARIS


Last week we went back to the canal to shoot this super pretty sun and moon print skirt from Hello Margaret. I do enjoy a maxi skirt, they're so easy to wear and go with so many things, I love them with crop tops because I think its quite a flattering balance of skin vs maxi skirt. The print on this skirt just makes it even better because how cool is the print!! My collection of moon/ star/ sun/ sky dwelling themed items of clothing is growing at a rapid rate. Smitch, one of the lovely girls from Hello Margaret created the print herself and as they only make 15 of each item I feel quite special to have one!

As I said before, I think maxi skirts look super cool with crop tops, hence why I paired it with this Motel crop top. I really loved all the different colours in the crop and the craziness of the print, theres so much going on which of course I like. Its so difficult to find crazy clothes these days that aren't super expensive because all the charity shops feel as if they've gone downhill. I don't want to wear oversized charity shop clothes anymore I want to wear cute and pretty crops, but of course thats a very difficult thing to find in a charity shop so thank god Motel exists haha!

MISSGUIDED BEACH OUTFIT



OUTFIT FROM MISSGUIDED
BLUE BANANA PRINT BIKINI - KIMONO - SILVER SANDALS - SUNGLASSES


On Sunday we went on a lovely beach adventure in the tropical land of Wales. Being wales, you would think that I would be freezing cold in this beach outfit but to everyones shock it was so nice and warm, I felt like I was in a super hot far away country! Everyone left the beach at 3pm for some reason, I'm not entirely sure why, maybe thats when the tide comes in? But we stayed for a few more hours and the tide stayed where it was which meant we we had the entire beach to ourselves!

I love all the crazy bright colours going on in this outfit, the kimono is most definitely my favourite piece as its such a beautiful shade of pink, its not like super in your face but its not a dark pink either its kind of like someone has made pink custard and made it into a kimono, and the pattern is really pretty. I feel like my life is one big kimono I have so many, a lot of them will be going into my permanent wardrobe including this one eek! I also love the banana bikini because... its a bikini with bananas on it! As for the sandals, I've been looking at these pool-slider type shoes recently and thinking ew they are so awful why would anyone ever wear those, but I saw these and I'm not sure why but I think they've converted me? They're super comfy because the sole is all padded and soft so maybe thats what it is, also these ones have ankle straps so they actually stay on my feet! I wouldn't be able to wear normal pool sliders because flip flops just fly off my feet as I'm walking along haha!

I'm a bit nervous about posting bikini photos because its not something I've ever felt comfortable in doing before and right now as I write this I'm in fact feeling most uncomfortable! But I figured hey ho, I'm on holiday, this is what I wear on holiday, I'm pretty sure when other people go on holiday they also wear bikinis and so I should feel no shame in posting my holiday outfits. Its not like I'm taking bikini mirror selfies. And on that note I shall head to the welsh charity shops! Have a fabulous day everyone!
