Holiday Shop| Where can I buy summer clothes now|

If you are lucky enough to be jetting off to the sun over xmas then buying holiday clothes can be a bit of a problem at this time of year. I also think that spending a lot of money on summer clothes in mid winter is wrong, you probably won’t wear them again for  months. There is plenty out there it is just a matter of looking.

I decided to keep to the High Street for my search today and I hope you like my finds.

An Invitation to MyaBlue Luxe & MyaBlue Beach|Beautiful Beachwear|Where can I buy beachwear all year|

As we all know at this time of year I become a little obsessed with beachwear in readiness for the annual trip to Peru. On this note I was delighted for the invitation to the Myablue HQ and to meet Lindsey Brown  the designer of the delightful creations. I have mentioned in previous posts  that I had my eye on a few pieces particularly the Aurora dress.

I certainly wasn’t disappointed when I finally laid eyes on the collections, they  certainly are beautiful. The fabrics are silk or super soft cottons making them perfect for the heat. They are also cut to flatter all shapes & sizes so there is no worrying about about tight fits. I do believe that all of us worry about beach coverups as we all want to look our best and show off the tam.

Along with the beautiful beachwear there were cocktails and cupcakes to maintain the energy levels!

There are two ranges to choose from , you have Myablue Luxe which is all beautiful silk kaftans & dresses in a rainbow of summer colours.

Then there is Myablue Beach  a range of kaftans in soft cotton and beautiful colours. The colour range is very tropical, my favourite is the Marrakesh Kaftan in fuschia & blue.

MyaBluebeach are offering 10% discount until the end of September just use this code at the checkout  HIGHSEP

Myablue Luxe beachwear|Beach Kaftans & Tunics|Gorgeous beachwear|My Travels to Peru|

As always at this time of year my thoughts turn to beach clothes as the annual countdown begins for the trip to Peru. We are still approx 15 weeks away but that is ok it gives me plenty of time to pull together my beach wardrobe.

My wardrobe has to be very versatile as we often visit Lima and you cannot walk around a city in flimsy beach clothes so I always need a bit of city and lot of beach.

I was recently introduced to Myablue, which by my standards is very glamorous but teamed with my huge stash of shorts, havaianas and sandals that are already waiting there and I think they will fit together nicely.

The black Mustique top will be cool with denim shorts,  my gorgeous orange Sergio Rossi sandals  and a Heidi Klein stetson that are waiting patiently in Peru.

The Aurora silk maxi is just waiting for a stack of coloured bracelets and my wooden wedges.

The Amalfi tunic is waiting to be teamed with my turquoise sandals and a panama hat.

Available myablueluxe.co.uk

Let the count down begin.
