The Great Getaway...

(Dress, Shirt, Shoes & Backpack - All C/O Forever 21)

I'm pretty sure that the second the clock strikes midnight, and hits June the sun will come out and summer will be in full swing, am I right? Even if my predictions aren't totally accurate, judging by my Instagram feed and the cool turquoise hues and white washed Grecian walls that are currently taking over it- holiday season is definitely underway, hooray! I may be indulging in a city break opposed to a beach holiday this year, but that hasn't stopped me getting excited by bikinis, ice creams and the beautiful seaside (British, or not).

So, in celebration with Forever 21's kick-ass summer collection, I've teamed up with the brand to bring you one of my favourite looks- featuring the cutest and comfiest summer shoes I've encountered thus far and an adorable gingham dress to boot, and some pool packing ideas to help kick off some inspiration if you're lacking some on these grey days! With the brand celebrating weekend getaways, poolside style, statement summer shoes and everything in between with their latest collection- you'd be hard pushed to pay a visit to their site (or instore, where I discovered some of these gems) and leave without a bit of a bulging basket- just don't blame me when your suitcase is a little overweight!

And Poolside Packing...

Forever 21 Pool Look
Key Bikinis + skirt of the season (the 'new' denim shorts) + statement sliders = pool lounging ready

Dressing for the beach needn't be as scary as a small bikini and a towel to cover up yourself a la Bridget Jones getting out of bed. Thankfully with the denim button up being the equivalent of a bloody good pair of shorts, this midi number is the perfect partner for a pretty print bandeau and some sliders- and makes it perfectly wearable for a day at the great British seaside too. Paired with a wide brim hat, some Hepburn-esque shades and a camera to snap everything on- you're good to hit the beach, just don't forget the SPF!

  36. The outfits are so perfect - yours and the flatlay. I adore denim skirts like that and dubbing them the "new denim shorts" is the right thing to do! Also, how cute is start red-and-white striped bikini top! To be honest, I'm even a bit glad that I don't have a Forever 21 where I live.

  42. This outfit is so damn cute! I'm the same, I seemed to think as soon as it was June 1st we'd all be wandering round in sun hats and sandals but it seems to have been the complete opposite where I live! x

  43. That palm print bikini top is so cute, I love the straps on the side. Also, I agree that the denim skirt is this years version of the denim short.
