Back in July, I went on a huge family holiday to the bedazzled city of Benidorm. The place itself wasn't the best,  but being around my huge, over the top, full of life family was all I really needed to have an amazing holiday. There was never a dull moment on the entire trip, constant laughter. Despite this trip not being centred around looking good and wearing 'on trend' outfits, I still thought it would be a good idea to share with you my style diary. 

DAY 1-   Airport Attire 

Hoody-BooHooMan (similar) / Bag- BooHooMan / Joggers- Adidas / Cap- Primark (similar) / Glasses- ASOS

Dressing for the airport turns into such a stress for me. I need an outfit that is comfortable, practical, warm (because planes are always like Antartica) yet still something more than joggers, a t-shirt and your flip flops. After seeing the combination online of this orange camouflage set, I instantly knew that it would tick all the boxes for me. I paired this look with a cap (my flight was at 4am and I wasn't about to blow dry my hair at that time of day, also as you can tell, this picture was taken in advance, not about photoshoots at 4am in the morning) and some glasses.

DAY 2- All for the GRAM

To be well and truly honest, the reasoning behind this outfit for the first night, was that I was really feeling the orange aesthetic on my Instagram. I have an obsession with colour at the moment. I feel as though not long ago, everyone was obsessed with the colour orange, although its starting to fizzle out now. I feel as though I have grown out of my minimalistic, monochrome days and I enjoy experimenting with bright colours to appreciate different aspects of fashion a little bit more. 

DAY 3- Band Tees and Pink?

T-shirt- Topman (similar) / Under T-shirt - Topman (similar) / Sunglasses - ASOS / Hat - Topman (similar)

The colour pink isn't one that you would usually associate with a Guns and Roses band tee but I feel as though it works. Maybe the juxtaposition of the stereotypes of the two things makes it somehow more interesting and cool. I paired this look, with a pair of white, distressed shorts and my Adidas tubular dooms in sand and pink. 

DAY 4- Are band Tees a thing anymore? 

Bandana- Local Vintage Store (similar)  / Mesh t-shirt -  Topman (similar) / Distressed t-shirt - ASOS / Shorts- Topman / Checkered shirt- Topman / Trainers - Converse 

I've noticed whilst uploading these images, that I layer ALOT. I can never just wear shorts and a t shirt, there always has to be something a little bit extra. I'm also wearing ANOTHER band Tee. As much as I loved this trend, I think its almost over. Its very much a mainstream trend and I feel as though the reign of the band tee is coming to an end. 

DAY 5- Khaki Lovin' 

Bandana- Local Vintage Store (similar) / Shirt - Topman (similar) / T shirt- Topman / Trainers - Nike / Glasses - ASOS

Khaki is such an autumnal colour, however it is personally one of my favourite colours ever. I wear it all year round with zero shame. It always comes back around anyway. Khaki always looks good with a tan, and looking back at these holiday snaps, in the early bitterness of October is making me slightly depressed. 

DAY 6- Monochromatic Layering 

Undertop- ASOS / T shirt - Night Addict / Shorts - Topman (similar) 

This is one of my favourite outfits whilst on holiday. It was one of those outfits that I had packed, but wasn't really feeling and didn't have any real intentions of wearing it. But the monochrome is so photogenic and I got some great big family pictures. As you can tell though, I still can't just wear a T-shirt and shorts. ALL ABOUT THE LAYERING. 

DAY 6- Bandana ALLday ERRYday 

T-shirt - Rive Island (similar)  / Trainers - Converse / Bandana - Local Vintage store (similar) 

Bandanas are always going to be a thing. For as long as people go on holidays and attend festivals. So I have quite a collection. I try and experiment and wear them in different ways, wether its around my head, neck or wrist. The idea of wrapping bandanas around other areas than just your head, was a huge trend last summer and was the breakout accessory for that season. The shorts in this picture and the one above have not been linked as they are just an old pair of jeans from the back of my wardrobe that I cut into shorts and distressed. Bit of a DIY job.

DAY 7- Final Night in Stag and Hen Wonderland 

T-shirt- Topman / Shorts- Topman (similar) / Trainers - Converse 

I bought this t-shirt in in a XL because it was a muscle fit t-shirt. I HATE muscle fit. Maybe thats because I don't have muscles, or its maybe more to do with that stereotypical steriod junky that is so massively linked to a muscle fit tee. The material of the t-shirt is very lightweight so its ideal for not only holidays but those sweaty clubs on a night out. The glasses in this picture are actually from a small gift shop in Benidorm so I'm afraid I can't link them. I have noticed that a lot of the links in this blog are not the actual product but rather 'similar' products. This is because a lot of the clothes are quite old, I wore them back in July so they are also out of season making it very difficult to even find alternatives. 

Anyway, that is the end of my holiday style diary. I hope that you enjoyed reading it.
