Daytime Holiday Wardrobe: The Bright Edit

what Lizzy Loves bright daytime holiday wardrobe

The glorious weather we had last week has made me think ahead to early August. We have a hotel and beach holiday booked and I’m certain we’ll have wall to wall sunshine. I always look forward to planning my holiday wardrobe and I wrote a holiday packing post last year before I went to Nerja. In it, I said that I aim to pack outfits, rather than individual pieces. That way, I know, in theory at least, that I’ll pack the right amount. For this type of holiday, I have two distinct and requirements. Day wear for breakfast, casual lunch, the pool and the beach, and evening wear for dinner. This year though, I’m more excited than usual and have already got a few bright new pieces for my daytime holiday wardrobe.

Daytime Holiday Wardrobe: Bright Beachwear

A day at the beach needs  little more than a bikini, and a beach dress to pop on  for breakfast and lunch, a pair of flip flops, a large beach bag and a clutch.

I love a bright, patterned bikini. This one from Fantasie is fabulous. The design is called Margarita Island and I love the tropical leaf print. Each Fantasie design comes in a choice of styles for both top and bottoms. I chose the bandeau scarf tie top and mid-rise briefs.

The beautiful blue and white embroidered kaftan is from Fair Trade brand, Aspiga Beach. It’s made form 100% cotton and has a drawstring neckline. It is also available with red embroidery, which is equally stunning.

    Gorgeous choices and just what I would choose ! Bright colours make me happy and feel more uplifted. There is something to be said about colour therapy for people who are low in mood. I’m looking forward to my holiday in Spain in June. Need the sun like we all do. Xx

      Yes! Bright colours are so uplifting aren’t they. I always go for a brighter palette when I’m looking at holiday clothes. It’s lovely when you know there is a holiday on the near horizon isn’t it! xxx
