I was asked by Kaleidoscope to get involved in a really cool summer promotion called #bloggersabroad! The idea was that I would showcase some of their Holiday items on my summer holidays abroad. Slight problem...I'm not going abroad this summer :(
So I went back and politely declined..but despite the title, they were looking for one blogger who's doing a staycation. And they decided that I could be that blogger!
But we all know how difficult is it to dress for a staycation...not to mind ordering weeks in advance of going, with no idea if we'll be on the beach or in an 'interesting' museum sheltering from the rain.
I decided to be optimistic with my first item - these Joe Browns Beach to Bar denim shorts.
I mean, everyone needs a good pair of denim shorts in their wardrobe? And I can confirm that these have ticked a lot of boxes for me. I'll be honest and say that I did chop a couple of inches off them - here I am (sneakily) wearing them during the hot spell last week:
The fit on the waist is perfect & they are just nicely loose without being sloppy. I ordered the 12. Please put out the Child of Prague for the next two weeks so I can wear these at least on one of the days?!
Next up, I loved the colour and shape of this yellow linen shirt and knew it would look as great as a beach cover up as it would over skinny jeans with a white vest. I ordered a 10 in this one.
Again - had a sneaky wear of this - will show you in a separate post tomorrow but here's the looky down shot...
Final item was a bit of a wardrobe gap and a holiday essential, seeing as I've been buying smaller cross body bags most recently - a tan leather shopper.
This is huge and made of a lovely soft leather. It's going to be great on our days out for filling with suncream & sun hats ... or raincoats & umbrellas :)
So all three are packed to take with me for a few days away with family on our staycation. During this time, I'll take some shots of me wearing them 'abroad' and share them on later blog post.
Another reminder that the shop closes for a couple of weeks from tomorrow (Wednesday) so last orders will be at 9pm tonight and they will be posted out first thing. This is just to allow me to get things in order, do a tax return, order in some new stock and prepare for a flash sale on my return! Keep an eye on the Facebook page for more details on the 10th/11th July.
