Last week I had the pleasure of an amazing Spa Day at the beautiful Ramside Hall in Durham, look out for my review blog coming next.
The sun was shining a bright 27c and we had the most amazing day blogging the Spa, chilling, eating and shooting my Holiday Edit pieces in the beautiful surroundings of this fabulous hotel Spa.
My holidays aren’t until November (Thailand) and I wanted to share my Holiday Capsule inspo with you all while its actually relevant for summer.
So, the vibe is very much monochromatic, black & white chic styles, classic Audrey inspired hat and shades with the accessory of the season……the basket bag.
I LOVE this bikini and really spent some time searching for the right pattern/style to suit my body. The cut, style and pattern/colour of your bikini makes a HUGE difference to your body shape.
Personally, I believe your bikini should fit YOU and when you get it right, is an investment like a good bra.
If like me you can’t just walk into to Primark or Topshop and pick up a bikini in your clothes size that just fits your top and bottom, then Bravissimo is for you.
People are always very surprised when I tell them my bra size is 30F but most women are wearing the wrong size bra.
Walking onto the beach or poolside bearing all for us women can be hard enough without feeling uncomfortable in your bikini.
That’s why I visited Bravissimo and spent the time with a lovely lady on hand to find the right one for me.
To make sure I was packed in tight I bought a bra size smaller in my top too.
Look out for my upcoming bikini for your body shapes blog too lovelies, it will literally change your holiday life I swear!
Obviously I had to get some Emerald green in there somewhere. The sequin palm leaf details on the bag are EVERYTHING!
Oh and a pop of Fuschia pink lip stain (matched my flamingo).
Black and white patterned styles are HUGE this Summer, you can add it to your case with a bikini, bag or cover up. This is a great palette for me as these colours suit my wardrobe and personal colouring well.
However, it won’t suit everyone’s skin tone BUT you could add this accent in accessories like your beach bag.
If you don’t know where to start with building a holiday capsule, don’t fret I have a blog coming up for you which is pretty much this holiday outfit in 3 different colour palette’s, one is guaranteed to suit you.
Look out for my Holiday Edit as I release styles and outfit inspo over the next week with you.
