This is my end of summer and going into the autumn look. Those if I\'m honest, the day we took these photos felt like we were still in the middle of summer and Autumn was just a distant dream. ⠀
I\'m a little late to the linen dress trend that been filling up my Ig feed this summer. Still better late than never, here\'s a linen \'inspired\' dress from Primark. I say \'inspired\' as I don\'t think its strictly a linen dress and its proberbly some cheap knockoff.⠀

With Autumn just around the corner, It got me thinking of September/Autumn fashion and how I\'m looking forward to saying goodbye to my summer dresses and hello to oversize jumpers and cosy cardigan. I\'m trying to reclaim my love for the cardigan, a childhood fave of mine which I have seen to outgrown as I got older. ⠀
Starting with this Sainsbury TU embroidery cardigan which is so lovely to wear. I\'m now looking forward to wearing more cardigan throughout Autumn. Bring it on. ⠀

A couple weeks ago, out of nowhere a butterfly flew into our home. This got me all emosh and I was certain it was an omen - a good omen. My husband just wanted it out of the house, but I wanted to keep it.⠀

Summer/Beach wear shopping list

It’s that time of the year again when you start thinking about leaving your troubles behind and wanting to escape the daily grind of your life. You start dreaming about warm tropical sunny weather, sand between your toes and an evening cocktails watching the sunset, whether its with your mate or your love one there is something rather appealing about wanting to go on a summer holiday.
I’m very sadly not going on holiday this year (too busy trying to get a mortgage) but I love summer holiday where you can relaxed by the beach, sip on a cocktails and spend all day in the pool to your heart content.
So with that in mind, no doubt you are planning on going holiday to a tropical paradise (or not) but got nothing to wear – always a major dilemma! You got your sun tan lotion, sandals and the perfect sunglasses but not sure on what swimwear or beachwear to wear, overwhelmed on what choice to buy.
Do not worry as I have done you the perfect summer/beachwear shopping list mixing in retro and mainstream swim wear with perfect maxi dresses and Kaftan which will keep you cool from the sun heat, while off course making sure you don’t blow your budget while shopping.
So whether you are going to the Caribbean or to somewhere like Ibiza, you will still look fashionable and fabulous.

Ruby Rocks Tropical Print Halter Dress £39
I will start with this Ruby Rocks Tropical Print Halter Dress from Madam Rage. This dress main appealed is that you can wear this over your swimming costume (or Bikini) and it will keep you covered from the hot weather.It also a great dress to wear while out in the evening and sipping on cocktails or having a meal.
Kelly Brook Black Daisy Swimsuit £24.99
This Daisy Swimsuit really appealed to me, I love the print designed and the ruffled skirt give it a retro look. This is from the Kelly Brook range at New Look and this is the one which stood out for me.
Blue Digital Pool Swimsuit Topshop £34

This fun and colourful swimsuit is to brighten up your holiday clothes while swimming in the sea or pool side.

CREAM PACHA BEADED WRAP KIMONO River Island £60

This River Island wrap kimono with it simple white colour scheme will keep you cool on a tropical summer day. Wear this with a swimsuit or bikini as it’s perfect while getting in and out of the pool.

White Retro Cherry Print Bikini

By Esther Williams £59.95

This retro cherry printed bikini has a 50s vibe to it. This is one of the Esther Williams  retro swimwear collections. Wearing this you can imagine going back in time and being Marilyn Monroe on the beach. The bad thing about this bikini is you have to buy the top and bottom separately.

Beach Blanket Bingo Two Piece in Soft Black $89.99

No shopping list would be complete without some polka dots. This is from the US online shop Moth Cloth another one from Ester Williams swimwear collections. You can buy this as a bikini or as a one piece suit.

Edit://  Wow no sooner did I post this I just heard Ester Williams has died. RIP and thank you for the lovely retro swimwear.
