I'm starting to get used to this whole wearing my hair down on holiday thing. I always used to get way too hot but I think I've adapted to the heat since the heatwave in the UK. I never usually wear it completely straight but I was in a rush and didn't get the chance to curl it. Last night we went for a family meal at my parent's favourite restaurant and somehow things still managed to get fairly messy! I bought these Zara silk shorts in the sale yesterday so decided to give them a try. I nearly bought them a few weeks ago but I found other items I preferred. I actually really like the oriental style print and the colours used, the golden bronze colour looks great against a tan (not that I have one yet!). I paired the shorts with a plain white crop top and my River Island white block heels to keep it quite simple. 

During my little shopping trip yesterday, I picked up these Maybelline false nails which immediately caught my eye. I love bright shades at the moment so these are right up my street! I've never thought about using coloured or patterned false nails as I always buy the plain ones and paint them myself. They're quite expensive considering you can only use them once but I think they are worth it for an occasion or holiday. I'm not sure if these are available in the UK but keep your eyes peeled!
