Hello everyone!

I'm sorry that it has been a good week or so since I last posted, things have been very busy since getting back from Malta.  I can now also say that I'm no longer unemployed!!  I start my new job tomorrow and I will be working full-time, so I may be a little quieter on the blog front than I have been this summer, but I promise I will still be posting new things for you to read (especially on weekends).

Holiday Series: Knits & Neon

Before I went to Malta, I was having a bit of a love affair with knitted vests.  Despite the weather being so humid abroad, I still decided to sport my white knitted vest that I picked up in Primark before I went away.  I basically wore it as a cover-up, over bandeaus and bikinis.  I was on the lookout for the perfect crochet cover-up before I went, but I didn't quite manage to find one.  So this suited me just fine as a replacement.

I teamed my knitted vest with a very recent purchase of mine, the lime/neon ribbed tube skirt from River Island (I've linked the longer version above!).  I absolutely adore the colour and didn't even think twice when it came to snatching it off the rail and rushing on over to the till.  Sadly the fit isn't very forgiving and cycle shorts are probably required in order to hide any lumps and bumps.  But at least the colour is gorgeous!

Holiday Series: Palm Leaves

A palm leaf print outfit I wore during my travels in Malta
Top - H&M
Skirt - Motel Rocks
Bangle - Stall in Brighton
Clutch - Primark
Sandals - Primark

Here is another little snippet of an outfit I wore on holiday.  I bought the palm leaf print skirt a few months ago and I was desperate to get some wear out of it.  I always feel a wee bit self-conscious when it comes to wearing anything bodycon, especially in the UK, but Malta gave me the perfect excuse to give it a try.  The denim tie-up shirt is quite an old purchase from H&M.  I think I actually bought it a year ago for when I went to Portugal with Alex -- it's such a handy item to have in your wardrobe.

I'm desperate to get my hands on the black version of this skirt now too!

Hello lovelies!

I am now back from my holiday in Malta and I am already suffering from the post-holiday blues.  The weather out there was so gorgeous, reaching around 34 degrees each day.  I was somehow still incapable of managing to catch a tan though.  Instead, I became a big bundle of freckles... with a rather sun-burnt nose.  Nevertheless, I have a few mini outfit posts to share with you all --  I managed to get Alex to take some outfit snaps for me whilst we were away, so kudos to him for his photography skills!

The majority of the time spent in Malta, I ended up opting for loose-fitting tees and denim shorts.  The weather was just far too humid to go for anything else.  If it was socially acceptable, I think I would have worn a bikini 24/7.  I couldn't resist this cami and Glamorous shorts* duo whilst I was out there.  I love the acid wash effect of the shorts and they are literally the perfect fit & length -- no awkward wardrobe malfunctions happened whilst walking around the island, hooray!

Whilst I was away, I suffered from some major blogging withdrawal symptoms.  Although I am pretty sad to be back in England, boy does it feel good to be able to blog again.  I'm feeling so refreshed since my time away.  It's amazing what a little break can do to you.

I hope you're all well!
