So last week I started my Summer Internship at E-closet, a new business thats aim is to help re-sell unwanted vintage and high end fashion items. It's a amazing concept and I shall keep you all posted and link you to all the online accesses once they're up and running! Not long now.
Anyway, so I created a blog post for the closet regarding summer must haves home or away! So here it is...
"The time of year has come again where the envious beast in us reveals ourselves with people name-dropping of their chosen destinations of the summer travels rapidly approaching. And lets face it; a holiday only means one thing to us. A new wardrobe!! There’s always a few must have’s that we find ourselves frantically purchasing.
This year, whether you’re jetting off to St. Barts or down to Cornwall for a long weekend, you need some of our essentials.
The slinky bikini is out and the fabulous one piece is back (along with more detailed modest bikini selections of course). The crazier the detail and style the better, although this is not a great hit for our tan lines... but we can work around that, just you watch. Check out Asos from some serious alternative bathing suits.
We all need to shy away from the sun sometimes, and the clouds if you’ve stayed put here for the jubilee or Olympic celebrations. And for that, well what can trump a loose fitting white shirt. The base to any wardrobe to be able to fully function. Slip it on over your cossy for lunch or when the clouds roll over as a slight windbreak, white’s the perfect colour for non-clashing cover-ups. Any good retailer will stock a white shirt, but for something a little different or adventurous cuts visit The Shirt Company.

This summer it’s all about the neon colours, but if your wanting to be on top form with the rest of the fashion world, adorn yourself with all things orange. From shoes to bags, it certainly is a must have. Why not try a sassy cut swimsuit in a bright orange, amazing with a golden brown tan.
When the evenings roll in and the sun finally sets, the dresses come out to play. Whether it’s shimmering in metallic tones or pretty paisley, there are many of choices ready for a girl to get the locals talking.
Or if you don’t fancy glammin’ it up in some lavish dresses every night of your holiday why not try out the Pyjama pant? Comfy, yet it can be made classy with the right top and accessories. I advise a brightly patterned wide leg, with a tight fitting, preferably strapless top and a large heavily embellished necklace. Add a small pair of heels and a clutch. Well on your way to casual chic.
The bohemian is back, with a bang! The paisley prints, wide brim floppy hats and crochet crawling back into fashion, it’s the perfect holiday look. Team it all up with some serious jewellery like our turquoise golden clasp bracelet and you’re ready to go, day or night.
So this summer, don’t think your current wardrobe will suffice, go out and experiment. If that’s not usually your style or ‘thing’, what better place to try it out than on holiday and just wait for the jealousy to be rolling in when your friends see the holiday photos and just how fabulous you’re looking."
