Beach dress- Topshop
Bikini (just seen)- Monki
Basket- Cath Kidston
Sunglasses- Marks and Spencer
I wore this on the first day I spent at the beach as I'm extremely prone to sunburn! I spied this beach dress in Topshop at the beginning of the summer (if we can call it that with the weather so awful at the moment!), and picked it up a few weeks before I went away. It was ideal for wearing to the beach, and I really love the watercolour effect- how pretty are the colours? The basket was something I bought in the Cath Kidston sale, and it was perfect for fitting all of my seaside essentials in, but I also think it will be great to use here when the weather perks up. Finally, I tried this hairstyle after seeing it in Look and on Pintrest, and I don't think it turned out that badly considering it was a first attempt. It's actually surprisingly easy to do, and ideal for keeping your locks tangle free if you're going away on a beach holiday.
What are your beach essentials? And do you impulse buy before you go away?
