Let's get beach ready with Yours Clothing


Word on the street is it's Summer.  I'm still debating if that's true or not to be honest especially with the recent deluge but here in good ole' Blighty we gotta take what we can get.  We have had some beautiful weather recently and a hot day often makes my mind wander to trips abroad.

I am a proper sun baby whenever the sun comes out you will see me shredding clothing like a lizard shredding it's skin (great visual Kat) OK sorry but you get what I mean, I cannot get naked quick enough! (still TMI Kat) I have bought a fabulous Wolf & Whistle swimsuit recently which was made exclusively for Yours Clothing, it's so pretty I just have to share.  So what does one do when one has a new swimsuit and nowhere hot to wear it? Take a trip to one of UK's sandy shores of course...just to frolic in the (not-so) clear blue sea!

Just so you know....it was FREEZING! See  how much I love you guys, that I risked frostbite for the greater good, all in the name of showing you this swimsuit!

I'm not usually a lover of a halter swimsuit, I often find that the weight of my GG puppies are all too much stress for the neck tie so was a little dubious.  I adore W&W swimwear generally, I have a few pieces from their own collection, but this is by far one of my faves.

I chose a size 20 and it's a perfect fit. I am 5ft 4" not particularly long or short bodied (just pretty average) with a size 38GG chest. The back is quite high it comes up comfortably to just below the underarm which is perfect for capturing my migrated breast tissue (or backfat or under arm boob or sideboob or whatever other fancy name you wanna give it)

The neck tie is really quite supportive of the puppies, I did have a little spillage when running but with such a plunging neckline, what really does one expect!

The leg cut of the swimsuit isn't high, it's just right and it doesn't ride up on the bum (cos no one needs a wedgie at the beach!)

The pièce de résistance for me is the gorgeous floral applique on bodice, it's so simple but really is a beautifully vibrant addition the black.

This swimsuit is available in sizes 16 to 26, click on the photo above to shop this swimsuit.

I am off to Spain at the end of July and I'm hoping to sneak a short beach break in as soon as Andy comes home from Poland, so that means 1 thing as far as I am concerned....SHOPPING! There are some fabulous summer staples available at Yours and I'm gonna give you a little sneak peek into some of wardrobe essentials that will definitely be going in my summer suitcase.


This swimsuit is really on trend with the mesh panelling and it has ruching on the tummy too. The plan is to rock this with this brightly coloured kimono and these toe post sandals. 

Smaller sunnies are hot this summer so I would stray away from the oversized sunnies and go for something like these babies.

One thing that has to stay oversized is your beach bag so keep your eyes peeled for when this nautical bag is available #comingsoon

Summer staple for me is a maxi.  I like to stay dressy of a night time as well keeping cool in the hot summer evenings. I'm often found sporting dresses just like these for dinners out on holipops with a pair of gladiator sandals, I tend not to go for heels in the summer but I am partial to a pair of wedges

Day wear (for when you're not crisp & dipping by the pool in your snazzy swimsuit, that is) has gotta be a pair of comfy and cool linen shorts like these teamed with a loose top just like this one.

All this browsing is making me wish my holipops was coming sooner rather than later but for now I will just have to keep on shopping for more holiday clothes.  I definitely need more swimwear as I tend to spend the grand majority of my holidays in the water.

What summer picks are you loving from the Yours collection?
