waiting to exhale

Sandals Aldo  Bikini Surfdome*  Sunglasses Vintage

Summer is finally upon us, hurrah! And this fills me with joy, as I am most definitely a summer person. Don't get me wrong, I love snuggling up in something cosy on a winters evening, sipping a hot choc while its freezing outside, feeling toasty and smug. But there is nothing like the sunshine; it cheers me up in an instant, leaving me feeling more positive and ready to face the day. I would go as far to say I'm a bit of a sun-worshipper... I love chilling in the garden with a good book, soaking up the rays and topping up my tan. When on holiday in Bali a couple of years ago with Kat I asked the beach attendant (actual job) to move the sun umbrella because it was "getting in the way of my tan". Yeh, not lived that one down.

With summer here, and our holiday just around the corner, I have been stocking up on summer essentials. Sun cream, after sun, insect repellent, a few good reads and beach wear, I'm on a roll! I'm loving this cute palm tree bikini from Surfdome, the style of this top and these bikini bottoms is super flattering and they fit like a dream. I've got about 5 bikinis lined up for holiday (all old apart from this one) and I tend to stick to this style; nothing too fancy, just comfortable and tan maximising! Paired with denim shorts or a loosing fitting cover up, sunnies and sandals and I'm beach-ready.

What are your holiday essentials? Help a sista out!
