Now it is summer I've been thinking about what I might need for myself (and not the kids, for a change!). This has been playing on my mind more since I have lost weight - having dropped a dress size I know that the clothes that I do have will need to be replaced. We do not have a beach holiday planned this year, but we are going to Berlin for a few days in August. We can't wait so these are the essentials that I will be buying for this summer.
1.) Jump Suits
We only need a few new outfits and I plan on dropping another dress size before Christmas, so I don't really want to spend a fortune. I love places like Matalan - the clothes are not expensive, but the quality is there. They have a sale on at the moment so I am quite keen to pick a jumpsuit.
I really love this colour - not sure I will get away with it just yet but I'll definitely be trying this on when I go shopping!
2.) Maxi Dresses
I love how cool maxi-dresses are and they can hide a multitude of curves if you want! Definitely need to pick up a few of these for summer. I would probably look in New Look and even TK Maxx - got to love a bargain.
3) New Luggage
We will need some new suitcases for our trip Ours have been battered from pillar to post. I think a couple of small ones that can go in the hold will be enough. We will have to shop around for them.
Sandals are a must in the heat. I can't bear for my feet to feel trapped! There are some gorgeous sandals from Jones Bootmaker I have been looking at lately. I like a sandal that I can walk in for a good while so these would be ideal:
I will have to keep an eye out for some sunglasses. I hate the sun in my eyes and the sunglasses I have are a bit old now. I can't wait to go shopping I'll have a job on my hands - I keep saying "I'll get it nearer the time" but that time is going to sneak up on me and the holidays will be here before I know it!
