Bikini Season

I always seem to find that when bikini season comes around it's my favourite brands such as River Island and Topshop that let me down. These stores appear to only design and make bikinis for small girls with small boobs.

It's frustrating to say the least that I always fall in love with numerous fashionable bikinis and realise that even a size 16 cup won't fit me. Despite I am a size 10-12. Some girls have boobs, I am one.

Surprisingly,  I have started to discover how great Tesco Clothing is. My mum has always shopped at Tesco so I thought it was quite a 'Mumsie' place to shop until last year when I would see her in a nice outfit and ask where it was from, her answer would always be 'Tesco'. I since then have relocated and now spend my working days across from a Tesco where they sell clothes and I can't seem to help myself with popping in for a drink or a sandwich to have a quick snoop in the clothing section. Each time there is something new I love and I think about for days on end until I purchase it.

So, when bikini season came round my first thought, as always, was River Island - where I was majorly let down. My spirits were quickly brightened when I realised that Tesco had a really amazing range of bikinis that are fashionable and made for women with boobs - halleijauh.

I've started my holiday shopping early as September isn't exactly the best thing to buy your summer outfits. I've picked up two gorgeous bikinis from Tesco:

I am obsessed! These two designs are similiar of something you would find in your highstreet stores but they are for girls with boobs and empty purses. 
Each top was £8 and each bottom was £5. 

I am eagerly awaiting more bikinis in Tescos so that I can add to my collection.

Bring on Ibiza! Thanks Tesco.

Monochrome River Island

Yesterday I went into Crawley and went a bit monochrome mad in River Island. I'm still in 'Ibiza Preparation' mode so this outfits were holiday based. My boyfriend (lucky for me) had some items to swap and he was super kind and let me get something while he returned his suit. Of course I can't just stop at one item in River Island, so I splashed out for 3...

The crop top and skirt are both from River Island for £16 and £25. The white skirt came with the black belt which has a melt plated front and I love it. The platforms are one of my most favourite pair of shoes from Clarks and the structured black backpack is from New Look which was £20.

As I've mentioned in a recent Primark Haul, I wanted to get a white crop top to go with the sky blue skirt I bought and I bought the white crop top in the below outfit mainly for that - it just happens to also go with the white skirt. Considering I'm so pale I thought all white would wash me out but it didn't, surprisingly 

The white crop top was £22 from River Island and will go with numerous items of clothing that I already have in my wardrobe. When I buy new items of clothing or accessories my favourite part of buying the purchase is taking it home and matching it up with other items in my wardrobe to create different outfits.

Also this weekend I finally managed to find a hair dresser that could fix my ombre look. I recently had a hair disaster trying to brighten my ombre which resulted in the salon having to dye my hair dark to fix it. 2 weeks of waiting for this appointment and I am finally happy with my hair.
 So thank you to Brendan for that amazing treat.

Primark Haul - Hayley Joeann

I've been on the ball with haul videos lately, since my spontaneous action of purchasing my boyfriend and I two tickets to see The Kooks in September... in IBIZA.

Check my 2 Primark Haul with an Ibiza inspired themed.


Festival Fashion

Festival Fashion is such a popular trend. With the festival season upon us I've been checking out a lot of festival looks online. These are two of the three outfits I wore for the weekend at Cornbury Festival. The third day was very rainy and busy where there wasn't an opportunity to sneak off for a quick snapshot.

If English weather is anything, it is unpredictable. Being prepared for all types of weather is important. I'm not one to get my legs out often but with the sudden change of weather it was hard to wear an outfit for sunshine and rain. I went with a cute dress from Urban Outfitters with elephant print on and on top of that my boyfriends jumper, which is quite a vintage style.  Styled up with some good old wellies and my new hat from Primark which I featured in my haul.

On a day that was particularly more sunny, I decided it was time to bring out my floral playsuit from Primark which is also featured in my latest youtube haul. Worn with some cute sunglasses bought from another stall at Cornbury and some sandals that were also from Primark. When the sun went in I styled it up with my Miss Selfridge Parka from around 2 years ago, it may be old but it does the job.

Check these looks out on my instagram (@hayleyjoeann) and on my lookbook.

Comment me what you think and if you've done any festival looks on your blog, LINK ME UP :)
