(Dress: River Island, Bag: H&M, Shoes: Topshop, Sunglasses: C/O A Weathered Penny)

I guess when I'm lucky enough to go abroad my natural instinct is to take the most 'Club Tropicana' wardrobe with me as humanly possible (minus the short speedos and flight attendant outfits)- and shirts that Jason Segal would have adored in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. I'm not necessarily saying this is a bad thing, and being someone who lives in a country whose weather is 90% rain for most of the year, you have to make the most of it, right?

Hence, why upon seeing this dress on the River Island site days before I headed off to the White Isle, I snapped it up (despite, it typically going to half price two days later). Paired with my trusty Topshop sandals, and new novelty pineapple bag (which doubles up as incredible hand puppet)- I think I have holiday tourist chic down to a tee, and you know what- I think I like it.

and here's what I wore...
