Summer holiday clothing haul

Well hello to you my reader chums! Today I have a good old clothing haul to share with you. Yesterday I went on a shopping trip with my best friend to help me pick out items for the holiday we're going on in the upcoming month. There were still some things missing that I hadn't got for the trip and I took full advantage of buying the bulk yesterday, in the trusty Primark! I got 2 things in other shops, however the majority is from Primark!

 Lets get into the haul:

I already have a couple of bikinis, however I wanted to get 3 in total since most of the holiday will be spent near the beach and pool. I would never of thought to look in Sports Direct for swimwear, however Danielle suggested it and we went to have a gander. To my surprise we found the cutest, blue gingham bikini from the brand 'SoulCal & Co' which is stocked in the store Republic. I absolutely adore the print, fit and colour of this and can't wait to get lots of wear out of it! There was also 50% off, meaning I got it for around £13!

Another shop I found something special in was Topshop. I'm getting into Topshop clothing a lot more lately and have been finding some real goodies in there. I saw this a dress a while back in grey, yet the fit didn't really suit me too well as it was quite baggy around the waistline. However, I saw this in a size smaller and the fit was much better, suiting my figure more. I prefer the blue/indigo shade to the original grey shade I saw. For holiday, I think it will be perfect for evenings, when we go out for a meal or for some drinks, paired with a leather jacket and sandals. I was glad to grab it for half price in the sale, costing only £12.
The black lace detailing on the shoulders is my favourite part of the dress because it adds something to the casual number.
Now onto my selection of Primark items:

The first piece of clothing is this light, flower print, monochrome top. What drew me to this was the overall flower print and the opposite change of the bottom half of the top. I love anything monochrome and I think this will look really sweet tucked into shorts, with sandals and a light cardi or even just draped over shorts. It was only £4!
Another flower print item is this daisy print tank top. For something so simple, tucked into high waisted shorts and paired with a kimono/caridigan and sandals, I think will look ultra summery! I love this especially as daisies are my favourite flower and for £4 I couldn't say no!
The kimono/cardigan I discussed above has a white, crochet design which fits in with the boho type style. I think this item is very versatile to pair with all different outfits and gives a festival vibe. Its the perfect light item for extremely sunny days or to throw over my bikini at the pool. The piece cost £12.
Another item I picked up were these 'mum' style shorts. I have a couple of pairs of shorts already but as I'll basically be living in these on holiday, I though getting another pair would be a good idea. I love the fit on these because they aren't too short and are very comfortable to wear. These are slightly different to my other shorts too because the design is a slightly more rough and this coloured denim is something I don't already own. These cost me just £10.
For chillier days/nights or to use as a cover up at the pool I picked up this cosy, thin grey and white cardigan. This was in the sale for only £5 and I think its going to be great for the Spring and holiday of course.
The last top I picked up is a Mickey Mouse, grey crop top. I'm a very big Disney fan so anything I find in Primark which is Disney related, I'm bound to buy. Apart from the Disney element, I love the shape and colour of this shirt, it can easily be thrown with shorts for a really casual look or can be used for pyjamas! I might even wear it on the plane journey there as its that comfy. It cost me £6 I believe.
The last item are these cream coloured shoes with holes throughout the design. I really like the look of these because they give an elegant, formal edge. I needed more flats and I think these are great for the transition into the warmer months and for £6 you can't go wrong!

I hope you enjoyed this summer clothing haul. I love all the items I picked up and can't wait to get styling! I'm super excited for this holiday with my 3 best friends and knowing I have majority of my outfits sorted now is a big relief.

Thank you for reading <3
