Back at it (again) with, yet another, post within my “What I wore in Gran Canaria” Series. If you follow my blog you’ll know I’ve already done a few of these already, but if you’re new and simply interested I have several posts which show what I wore by the pool, to the beach and evening wear – all linked here for ease! In this post, I show my daytime outfit on a day where we visited the other side of the island.
As we were walking, we came across a perfect look over spot with a gorgeous view of the sea. Naturally, I decided the wall would be the ideal backdrop for pictures – despite the fact there was a drop large enough to end my life. Blogging is risky business. To add some more comedy to the situation, my foot had been burned badly by the sun, hence why one foot is perfectly hidden in shade. Yes, the pose looks intentional but really, I was more concerned about my foot.
Coming back to the main purpose of this post, the majority of the outfit is from Primark. The crochet top was bought last year and is one of my summer holiday staples. The top can be tied like a bikini, with strings around the neck and back for perfect daytime adaptability. As such, this makes it ideal for going to the beach and pool when wearing swimwear underneath. An added benefit are the tassels around the waist, which provides a nice detailed distraction without being completely exposed. This is perfect for somebody like me who isn’t too confident with showing off their glowing food baby.
Whilst I usually pair this with some high waisted denim shorts, I decided to mix it up by wearing something lighter and flowier in material. Initially, I wasn’t too sure about pairing the red patterned shorts (Primark also, £4) with the crochet top, but it came together well to secure a bohemian vibe. It also felt completely appropriate with the gorgeous red flowers that hung from the tree above me, respectably used as a hair piece.
How are you spending this summer? Let me know!
