I spent the day exploring Barbados as the sky was overcast so we thought we would make the most of the slightly cooler weather by going into the City. Bridgetown was not what I expected of a city but was great to see and I bought some novelty shot glasses for my friends. I wore my little green shorts from topshop which have been my summer staple even since I bought them about 3 years ago! I’ve never seen any shorts the same colour so love wearing these as much as I can. Because they aren’t highwaisted I never pair them with a crop top as I feel there would be a little too much on show so wore my plain black vest top from River Island. The top goes with anything and like most clothes I have bought out here with me keeps me nice and cool. My once white converse and now my ‘dirty shoes’ but I love the all white style and would love another pair to try and keep clean!
Day one in Barbados!! The weather is incredibly hot which and the beaches are gorgeous! I spent my morning and afternoon on the beach wearing my ‘aloha’ top (accessorize) and red shorts (primark), I packed lots of throw on clothes that are easily taken off and put on when on the beach.
For lunch we went to Sunbury Plantation house where they conduct tours of the historic house giving the history of the house and plantation. We only had lunch which was still lovely and it was great to see some of the islands history. I wore my blue high waisted denim shorts (topshop) and white/black light vest top to keep me nice and cool.
I changed my outfit again for dinner at a Mexican restaurant called Cafe Sol. I felt a little over dressed but over dresses means you are always the best dressed! The play suit is from Oh My Love, I have seen lots of girls wearing this play suit around Southampton on nights but I know why as its it’s such a light, cool fabric but with such a great summery pattern.
Today I made the long 9 hour long journey to Barbados. The transition from English weather to Carribean weather was a factor I had to consider when choosing my travel outfit. I was planing on wearing a pair of thin black leggings but I forgot to back them before I left uni- typical! Instead I wore my black skinny jeans again and my sparkly silver top (also from River Island). The colour of the top is so summery it will be perfect to wear to summer festivals, the cuts up the sides will also keep me cool in Barbados as well as being a cheeky design feature.
Friday’s outfit was this casual look. I work as a promoter for a Southampton bar so was doing some day work creating a guest list of people working in shops in the city centre. The red hoodie is our uniform on Tuesday and Thursday nights as well as during the day. I also wore my favourite new black skinny jeans from River Island (Lana jeans) and Nike trainers- both of which is used my student discount on!
Outfit no.1 had to be this gorgeous shiny dress from Topshop! I originally got this dress in the sale for New Years eve which I celebrated at home in the local Weatherspoons (classy). Back in Southampton and with a Saturday night in Oceana on the cards I paired the dress with my black heeled sandals (also from Topshop) for that Saturday night glam! I’m in love with this dress as it makes me feel like a disco ball and changes colour; rubbing the dress so the sequins face the other way the dress becomes a matte bronze. I don’t often wear heels out clubbing but Saturday nights are an exception, plus these shoes are incredibly comfy so I’m able to dance (badly) all night long.
Apologies for the terrible full length image but a photo can only come out so well after a few double vodka red-bulls!
