Fashion Friday – Holiday Style

As it’s the summer and I’m on holiday I have been wearing slightly nicer clothes than I would normally, so it makes total sense that today I should link up to Mummy’s Got Style‘s all new Fashion Friday.

Here is my Lanzarote, family holiday style:

Fashion Friday - Holiday style

When on holiday I tend to go very low-key – minimal make-up, zero jewellery (that’s an all-inclusive holiday band you can see on my wrist there, sooooo stylish!). This is my go-to holiday dress which it’s probably time I upgraded from: I bought this flexible number when we were still living in Nice, I can’t remember the name of the shop but it’s on Rue Meyerbeer, just behind the Prom and not far from the Westminster Hotel.

If I remember rightly it was a bargain at around 30€, and I’ve got my money’s worth as I bought it in 2009 and have worn it every summer since then. I like the fact that I never see anyone else wearing the same dress, as it came from a tiny, independent shop with only a couple of sizes in each style.

I love that it can be dressed down with flip flops (as I’ve done here), or dressed up with wedge sandals and accessories.

The shoes are Fit Flops that I bought for this summer, and I LOVE them. There is one downside in that I’m not the only one, and I’ve already seen two people wearing them in London since I got them in May. But I can still totally recommend them, they are sooooo comfortable and stylish at the same time. I mostly wear them with dresses or jeans.

      They are absolute heaven! I have the Sketchers version too which are nowhere near as good, these ones actually feel like I’m walking on air. I cannot recommend them enough, especially for pregnant ladies 😉 They’re not cheap but I have lived in them since I got them and they’re not showing any signs of wear.
