So this is going to be a little 'saga' of looks I've selected that I think would be super appropriate for your summer holidays, or equally just as good as a festival outfit. I am aiming to make them as realistic as possible, in the sense that each outfit is something that I would actually wear on holiday, and also so that each look is relatively affordable and could incorporate items you already have hidden in your wardrobe, alongside more trend-based pieces. Hopefully, this will be a success and may inspire you while planning your own holiday outfits. I don't know about you guys, but I find it ever so tedious trying to plan holiday outfits, so I feel like this would help me! Lastly, I am going away soon myself, so I am hoping to use these blog posts to document outfit ideas that I will be able to wear myself! ENJOY.

Top: Pretty Little Thing
I feel as though this look is quite a girly one, and incorporates a lot of feminine vibes. The off the shoulder detailing on this cropped top is particularly flattering on the chest and collarbone area, and sits elegantly across the shoulders. The lace up detailing is very on trend at the moment, and adds a bit of cool chic to the outfit, which breaks it up from being completely girly, so its more versatile. I also think for such an inexpensive piece, you can't really go wrong with this.
This skirt style is VERY on trend at the moment, and I'm loving it. It is almost like the skirt equivalent of a tea dress, as it is so floaty and feminine, and isn't too fitted. It sits nicely over the bum and hips, and has a slightly slim fit, but then as it is more floaty at the bottom, it looks super pretty and summery. Also, the diagonal ruffling along the front and tie up detailing adds to the girly vibe, alongside the ditsy floral print. This is definitely a SS17 piece that you cannot get away from. I personally love orange at the moment, and is one of the only bright colours I am truly obsessed with. However, these ditsy print mini skirts are everywhere at the moment, and you can get all kinds of designs and colours in most high street stores and online. The only downside of this skirt is that it can be a little temperamental in the wind because it is so light and airy, but as long as you're careful, you'll have no worries and it hasn't prevented me from wearing it on every occasion I can!
Lastly, espadrilles. There are thousands of styles of espadrilles on the market at the moment, and I think you can discover the pair for you for a range of prices, colours and styles. I personally love the lace up style of espadrille, as I think they're especially flattering on the ankle and up your calf, especially if your legs aren't super skinny, I think this can really bode well for you. I have been loving wearing these as they are so comfortable, although I would say you really have to knot them at the back, rather than attempting a pretty bow because they have a tendency to loosen and fall down otherwise. Although I think if you spent a little more on a pair, you would most likely avoid this issue as these were around the £20 price mark, so very affordable.
I hope you've all enjoyed look number one of this little saga, and do let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Thanks so much for reading as always!
