Words cannot describe how depressed I am coming home to such a drizzly and miserable day, I never wanted to come back! If you read my previous posts you'll know that I spent the last few days in Marbella as a really last minute holiday. I didn't take my laptop with me but I photographed 4 outfits which I am going to post over the next 4 days. I'm not as tanned as I'd like to be unfortunately, I plan to start a course of sun beds before I go back on the 24th, feeling pale on the beach was not nice! 

This outfit was from the first day where I went on a shopping trip around Puerto Banus and picked up some amazing pieces from Zara which I will post about later in the week. One of the best things about Marbella is Zara, not only do the stores feature pieces that the UK will never see but the prices are also a fraction cheaper which is always a bonus! I wore a basic slubbed grey vest tied at the waist, it is a little long to wear as a crop and it adds to the casual look. I usually wear a bralet underneath this vest but considering I was on holiday I wore a nude strapless bikini top which has a structured fit so the vest falls nicely over the top. I love this dip-dye maxi skirt which I ordered online just before I went, I also found it was just the right length as most maxi skirts are usually a little long because I'm so short! I am going to spend the evening unpacking and sorting out the rest of my posts for the week, hope everyone had a lovely bank holiday weekend and enjoyed the Jubilee. If I'm honest, I didn't watch any of the Jubilee but it was kind of the last thing on my mind!
