Holiday Lookbook Cyprus still

Regular readers and or watchers of xameliax will know that a couple of weeks ago Joe and I jetted off to Cyprus for a week of pure relaxation and sunshine! We had such a wonderful time (you can read my resort review or watch out holiday vlog) and I well and truly switched off for the whole seven days.

When I go away I’m all about comfort during the day – big sun hats, flattering bikinis and comfy flipflops! But in the evening I do like to slap a bit of lippy on and get dressed up for dinner and drinks in the bar. I got a lot of questions on instagram about my holiday outfits this time so I thought I’d put together a little lookbook for you in blog and vlog form to help spread a bit of summer fashion inspo!

On our first night I went for something slinky before the all inclusive cocktails and pancakes at breakfast got the better of me! I love a bodycon skirt and bardot crop number and the pink tones in this outfit are just gorgeous together. Paired with a comfy pair of flats and my trusty clutch – bring on the mojitos!

Sadly this top is no longer available in berry but I’ve managed to find a black version that would go just as well and some similar sandals too! I’ve been using this clutch bag for three years (probably a massive clue it’s about time to get a new one) so I’ve chosen a gorgeous geo print number that would go perfectly with my outfits…and might just end up in my shopping basket too!

I love love love this outfit – so chic and *shock horror* really comfortable too! This oversized top is from Primark and so are my chino shorts at just £6! This is such a versatile look so I’ve put together a couple of online alternatives for you to re-create it if you can’t find these bits in your local store. The boots are one of the best things I’ve bought in a long time and are super comfortable. You could rock this outfit sightseeing in the day with a pair of tan flats or even to travel in – a true day to night look.

Adorable playsuit alert! This gorgeous little number is from New Look for £20 and comes in the opposite colours too. It’s super flattering for larger chests with its wrap around design and cuts off just at the right length on your thighs. I’ve let the playsuit do all the talking here and teamed it with a simple but adorable pair of flats (why not get crafty and add your own tassels to your favourite pair? So easy to do and an instant re-vamp) and MAC lipstick in Stone for retro vibe.

This was pretty much me all day errrr day while we were away! I picked up this beach dress in Primark for under £15 and it was perfect for throwing on round the pool or when we head in for lunch. But the star of the show really was my new floppy cutout hat from Mango at ASOS! It’s huge and although offers little to no sun protection (unless criss-cross face tans are your thing) it looks so chic and I didn’t want to take it off! My shoes are from Slydes and the come in a plethora of different colours and the sunglasses I picked up from Forever 21 when we were in Amsterdam!

I’ve found some beach and maxi dress alternatives to finish off this poolside look if you can’t find the matching items in your Primark!

Another amazing Primark find – yes Primark and only £13! I had to go up two sizes with this jumpsuit but it fits a dream and looks amazing on an evening or dressed down over a plain white tee during the day! Teamed with a cute fluffy pair of tan sandals and minimal jewellery it made for one comfy but cool evening look.

New Look have got a gorgeous jumpsuit alternative that you can buy online – it looks really flattering and considering how comfy this one was I might have to invest in another myself!

On the last night we pulled out all the stops and ventured outside our all inclusive enclosure for a traditional Cypriot meal watching the sunset. It was the perfect evening and I’d saved my favourite dress till last! This bad boy is from ASOS and just £18. It’s made of jersey so it’s incredibly lightweight and comfortable but the deep plunge neckline is a real showstopper! I wore it with some simple flat sandals, my Gwen Stefani 714 lippy and some victory rolls for a classic evening look.
