Summer Hol Haul: Missguided, Boohoo, ASOS and more!

As I mentioned in my last post, I'm going on holiday next month! Myself and my boyfriend are spending a week in Corfu, giving me a good excuse to splash out and buy a butt load of new clothing. With the Mayday weekend discounts appearing on many websites I managed to get up to 20% off my purchases!

First up is ASOS, where I bought a dress, two cropped tops and a swimsuit. 


My favourite purchase was the citrus slice crop top. It's super cute and mega summery, perfect for a hot vacation! I'll probably team this up with denim shorts for a fun daytime look. 


I love spearmint green, so I couldn't resist buying a spearmint crop top to wear during the day.  


Last year when I visited Tenerife only had one dress, which was a little bit too fancy to wear during the day. This meant wearing shorts almost every day, which still got quite got stuffy and hot. So I added the white cross back dress to my cart to keep me cool on long hot days.

The hardest clothing for me to find is swimwear, as I have larger boobs and therefore need a little more support. I was unsure of this swimsuit, but it stood out so much I just had to try it. I'm going to use a little broach to keep the middle pinned and save myself from any embarrassing situations. This is definitely one to wear for lounging around the pool, not for boat trips or water sports!


I've never been a fan of jumpsuits as I always thought they'd look dumpy, but I bit the bullet and bought a tailored fit jumpsuit from Missguided. It's a really nice floaty material, but I apparently have more upper body than leg, as it's quite tight on my shoulders. 


One morning I went into work early and saw an email from BooHoo with 20%, so I couldn't resist! I immediately looked at the summer wear and picked up a kimono, with green and black colouring and a chain pattern.


I also bought a pair of white tartan leggings, which are probably my favourite purchase. I was scared they'd make my thighs and hips look even larger, but the material is firm and holds everything in place. The black bandeau top is also from BooHoo, an essential in every girls wardrobe!

I also chose a pair of disco pants, but I've had to send them back as there was a hole in the leg, boo(hoo)!

I also purchased two more bikini's, one from River Island and one from Fig Leafs. The River Island set has a cropped top and high-waisted shorts with a bright geometric pattern. The other is a simple black and white bra and pants set, perfect for walks along the beach and boat trips.

Are you planning a summer holiday? Or have you maybe treated yourself to summer clothing?
