  1. We all worry about what to pack when we go on holiday. We want to look great, feel comfortable, have something for any occassion and... make sure we can fit it all in the suitcase!

    This month we have created a casual look with key accessories, to take the hassle out of looking good.

    simply beach polyvoreSimply Beach.

    From the KUKShades store we have chosen our best selling beach bag from Bill Brown's basics range. It has the perfect length handles to wear over the shoulder and big enough for a towel, swim suit, flip flops and your summer read. It's made from handloom cotton with jute detail giving an earthy, relaxed feel. It will pack flat in your case too.

    Sunglasses - of course you wouldn't leave home without them, and these cute pastel pink aviators are perfect for an effortless look.

    A tee and shorts are staples of any holiday wardrobe and we think this Summer Lovin' tee from Planet Blue is great fun. It will suit cropped trousers and a denim skirt during the day - and by night - throw over a chunky knit for the barbecue or tailored jacket for a walk into town.  

    The little pumps - I have a pair of these, they are really comfortable and go with everything!! Perfect.

    So there you have it - our take on effortless beach style. We hope you like it.

  2. August has inspired us to put together a warm, bold ensemble.

    The starting point was the gorgeous, turquoise ‘Bella’ sarong from Pia Rossini, which we partnered with bright orange accessories for a little heat and drama.

    Turquoise and orange work so well together as block colours and with a few key accessories,  it would be easy to create this glamorous look yourself. 

    Including a sarong in your summer wardrobe is a great idea as it can be styled in a variety of ways. Bearing this in mind, you could turn your skirt into a dress and take this look straight from the beach and out to lunch... turning heads all the way!
