Beach is better

 Lace kaftan cover up (similar here) - Topshop

Floral playsuit (similar here and here) - Topshop || Shoes - Zara

First outfit:
At £32 for a flimsy bit of net I wasn't completely sold on this cover-up and I was actually ready to return it, but laziness meant I didn't and now I've worn it, I'm glad I didn't. It looks great with a bright coloured bikini and doesn't look too 'beachy' for putting on a pair of denim shorts underneath to travel to and from the beach. I mean, it's white, and there's always a place in my wardrobe for more white. And yes, I'm very aware that my face is two-toned -_-

Second outfit:
I bought this playsuit a few years ago after seeing it on The Cherry Blossom Girl blog and it still remains to be the only floral clothing I own/will wear. I remember being so torn over buying it because it was fifty bloody pounds(!) but my friend coerced me by giving me the old rational "cost per wear" talk. I don't think it's had fifty wears yet though! Also, if you think I look a cheese sitting in front of the fountain like that, you should have seen the people in "draw me like one of your French girls" positions. A slightly stronger breeze and they would have been drenched.

  1. So cute, Jade! The cover-up in your first outfit is really pretty, I wish I'd gone away this summer, feels like I haven't had a beach holiday in forever. xx

    should wear more floral often Jade! A one that
    doesn't need to cost 50 bucks :P Xx

  3. I love your floral playsuit! I don't think I own anything floral, I never seem to find anything that suits me, i've lost count of all the things i've bought that were floral and then returned! x
