Here comes the sun

Unless you've been pretty unlucky, you would have noticed that over the past few days the UK has been bathed in glorious sunshine. As soon as the sun comes out, I always think about my summer wardrobe and in particular, any capsule wardrobes I want to think about taking away with me on holidays or for a "staycation" if I think the weather is going to hold! Matalan has loads of amazingly priced pieces that will see you all the way through the summer months without damaging the cocktail fund! Check out their Holiday Shop for more ideas, or read on for my own personal picks....

First things first: the perfect suitcase for all my stuff...
The World's lightest suitcase apparently! And in a very on trend snake print....what's not to like? Shop here
Now to fill it....first things first, I think, the essentials....
 Lovely lime green beach towel-these are on offer on the Matalan site right now, 2 for £8! What a bargain!
 Essential. Say no more!
Always handy to soothe any burnt bits!
Next up; the perfect bikini to show off that beach bod. I love the idea of mix and match bikini's because I have a bit of a booty but no bust, basically! So mixing and matching is ideal as I can pick a smaller top and larger bottom if I need to. This is my fave bikini:

I love the gorgeous Moroccan inspired print and the little ring detail in the centre of the bust and the hip adds another dimension to the shape of the bikini. You can shop this style and others here-prices for separates begin at £3!
Of course I'll be needing some flip flops to go with this....
I love these glossy black bow slides and they are only £4! Cheaper than a couple of ice creams and twice as nice!
Shop sandals and flip flops here.
Also I feel a hat wouldn't be amiss here....
I love the simplicity of this hat and it will look as cute with cut off denims as it will with a lovely maxi and sandals. It's oh so pretty! Buy it here
...and maybe wear it with this whilst walking along the sands....

This floaty jumpsuit is the perfect throwover to take you from beach to bar. The strapless style and harem shaped legs will flatter your figure but also keep you feeling cool. And on top of that it's only a tenner-chuck it in your case and you can pull it out the other end and you'll be ready to go! Buy it here
Finally I definitely think all my beachy kit needs a lush new bag to be toted around in, and I've found the perfect one. Large, rope handled, and, above all...leopard print! I love it, I'm sure you will too....
Yay! Isn't it lovely! Buy it here
Hope you liked my choices! Now I just need to get my holiday booked!
Shop these lovely bits and more, over on the Matalan website
