SS13 Holiday Wardrobe Haul

I've been saying for a good two weeks now that I had a pretty large summer holiday wardrobe haul to either blog or film -- I decided to stick to blogging, despite how photo-heavy this post is going to be, so sorry in advance for that!  I have been gathering up items to take to Malta for the last month or so, every time I've had a little bit of money, and it's resulted in a rather large haul.  I'm sticking to only taking the basics when it comes to accessories & jewellery -- I find jewellery difficult to keep in my suitcase without getting broken or tangled up -- so that's the reason for being a bit repetitive with the gold jewellery complimenting my outfits.  Anyway, let's get started....

Rustic accessories for my holiday in Malta
Necklace - Primark, £3
Elephant bangle - Stall in Brighton, £5
Clutch - Primark, £8ish (I think)

Gladiator sandals and aztec flip flops
Gladiators - Primark, £12
Aztec flip flops - Primark, £1

All I'm searching for now are a few more pairs of denim shorts that cover my dignity (why are they so hard to find?!), a crochet cover-up and a kimono.  I hope you enjoyed this post & a glimpse at some of my outfit ideas!
