Holiday Haul

These are some of the items I picked up before going on holidays to Portugal. I thought I would share them with you girls incase you are going anywhere nice and wanted some inspiration. I didn't need many summery clothes as I bought a lot last year and with our Irish weather I didn't get a chance to wear many of them. The main item I wanted was a black maxi skirt. I searched high and low for one and eventually found this one in New Look. I think it was around €12.99. I am sorry I haven't listed the prices of anything. I can't remember them and I removed the tags whilst on holidays. But I know for a fact most of them are under €10.00. I have included the links where possible. 

Anyway, I bought the black crop top and the spiked arrow New Look necklace to pair with the black maxi skirt. The crop is so cosy and a lovely fit. I am tempted to go back and buy them in different colours. I also figured I could wear this outfit during the Irish summer as I could pop a cardigan over it when it is cold. I purchased the H&M tanks mainly to pair with the beige shorts. I had seen a photo of my friend wearing a pair of beige shorts and a neon tank and it looked amazing so I wanted to recreate her look. I also thought the khaki tank would look nice tucked into the black maxi and paired with a tan belt and tan flip flops. 

I have actually returned the coral dress photographed above. Now don't get me wrong I love it, but I didn't get a chance to wear it on holidays as we had two cold days and it cost €17.99 which I consider pricey for a sundress. I know I wont get the wear out of it so I thought it was sensible to return it and instead I picked some weather appropriate attire.

I fell in love with the Primark stripy shorts when I seen them in the store but, when I brought them home I wasn't sure as they are not very versatile. I feel you can only pair them with white. But I have a beautiful delicate white cutout tank top from the Kate Moss Topshop collection that I paired with them and I fell in love all over again.

Finally I popped into Boots and picked up some makeup that was definitely not needed but I wanted to try out a few new bits. I justified it by telling myself I need items to review on my blog. How many of you does this? Please don't tell me I am the only one.

Have you girls any summer holidays planned? I would love to know your summer plans.
