It’s holiday season, all your friends are flying around, your favourite Instagrammer’s are flaunting their infinity pool villas online, while showing off the new must have bikini, and well, what about you?
Last week I flew off to the Maldives with Kavita Cola and Rosie Fortescue for the ultimate girls trip in the sun, (full post on villas etc will be up soon!), and for the trip I collaborated with the newly rebranded Warehouse and skin saviour Hawaiian Tropic UK to give you all a chance of winning your own trip in the sun.
WHAT I WORE
Like I said, Warehouse have recently rebranded, if you’re around my age (28) your’ll remember growing up and seeing Warehouse as the cool shop, somewhere my teenage cousins shopped, my sassy mum would grab a dress or two every other weekend, and I couldn’t wait to fit in to it all, to be able to go in there and shop for me, like the cool girls. Well the time came, but the styles weren’t up to it, well until Emma Cook was recruited as Warehouse’s new Design Director. Her designs are incredible! And have totally got me hooked once again to be a ‘Warehouse Girl!’
I took a couple of Warehouse bits out with me, my favourite being the lilac pleated maxi dress. A complete Grecian dream and one that I wasn’t too sure of when I saw it. I didn’t want it to be too girlie, which lilac can be, but when in the right environment, bare foot in the Maldivian sand, with a straw hat, to me this was what made me feel the chicest.
Another favourite was the shimmery floral midi dress, it was the perfect throw on for sea front lunch. Also the dress had a tie string in the middle, so even at 5’1 I was fine with altering the lenght. Thrown on over the top of the classic black bikini with a pair of silver slides, I was set.
NOTE: Warehouse comes up true to size!
THE HAWAIIAN WAY
One of my sisters recently said to me, ‘are you taking any sun protection with you? We don’t really need it do we?’ YES WE DO. Every skin tone needs it, it’s not all about whether you’re tanning or not, it’s about the protection. We only have one body, let’s look after it now.
I took the new Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration range with me, and the Weightless Clear Spray Sunscreen was my saviour! It was so easy to use, apply, and it didn’t rub off any of my clothes or appear visible. I’m obviously working whilst on holiday, always, and the last thing I want to do is ruin my new clothes was oils, or taint the perfect Instagram picture with questionable marks. Priorities.
