Leopard Print Blouse, Scalloped Shorts

This is my favourite outfit I wore on holiday recently. I didn’t take many outfit pics while I was away as this holiday was about being completely cut off from pretty much everything and all I wanted to do was sit on the beach, read, and eat – and that’s exactly what I did!

Blouse: Zara
Shorts: Monki
Sandals: Rascal @ Secret Sales
Clutch: ASOS
Bracelet: ASOS

I got this light weight chiffon blouse in the Zara sale. I’d been wearing it with jeans, when it wasn’t so hot, around the office. Loosely tucking it into shorts made it slightly more formal and kept it cool in the sweltering Spanish heat (yes, even in the evenings!). I’ve had the scalloped edge shorts for about six months now and never worn them, despite that they’re really cute. I’ll be wearing these on nights out throughout the summer (if it lasts!)

With a big pattern on the top, my accessories were kept pretty basic. The gold woven sandals are my go-to hot weather shoes for evening way; they were my first purchase from Secret Sales – a great site to get reduced price fashion on high street and luxury brands. I matched the gold with my ASOS filigree bangle and the gold clasp on my oversized clutch. I never take a handbag on holiday, rather I have a backpack for the beach and a couple of clutches for the evenings.

I love leopard print and gold all through the year. Next I’m going to wear this top with a cotton pencil skirt for summer proof office wear – although I am secretly excited about wearing it with big boots in Autumn!
