Ibiza In Leeds


A couple of weeks ago I attended #BlogAtTheBeach hosted by Ice Lolly, which was an Ibiza themed event in Leeds. As I was going on holiday that same week the event came at the perfect time to help me get into the holiday spirit and also inspire me with lots of travel content. I always leave blogging events full of motivation and ideas (and also with the regret of not having spoken to everyone I wanted to #shygirlproblems) so I can't wait to create some holiday posts now I'm back.




 Luckily the sun was shining in Leeds which meant I could get into the Ibiza spirit with my new playsuit from Next. I actually bought this playsuit for my holiday because it's so summery and cute, but also the perfect comfortable piece for walking around all day in. They also do it in blue and white, which I was very tempted by, but I decided to break the habit of a lifetime and go for pink. I'm not a very pink person at all, but I slowly seem to be adding more of it to my wardrobe so maybe I'm going all girly in my old age. The thing I love the most about this playsuit is the tie details - there's one round the waist that ties either at the front or back and one that ties at the back where your bra strap would rest, which luckily means that you can *just about* get away with wearing a bra with it because the tie covers it. Obviously if you're comfortable rocking it without one then that's not a problem. I can't explain why, but this playsuit really reminds me of the seaside, to the point where I feel like I should have had a big ball of candy floss as a prop in these photos (funnily enough candy floss isn't rife in Leeds.)

I went for black accessories for my day in Leeds because although I wanted to get in the holiday spirit, I didn't want to look like I was actually on my way to the airport so I thought the black would tone it down ever so slightly, plus I really like the contrast of the pale playsuit against the black. These shoes have been featured so many times on this blog, they're old faithfuls from Primark that have really stood the test of time and my price per wear is probably down to about 0.0000001p. My bag is relatively new and one that I haven't used all that much yet despite it being pretty darn gorgeous. It's great for days out where you don't need too much stuff like this little trip to Leeds, but on a day to day basis I tend to travel a little less lightly!






You may remember me banging on about how amazingly happy I was with the pictures that Ashton took for this post, well on this occasion I had the pleasure of shooting with her brother Robert , who even coordinated with me for the day and if that isn't commitment from your photographer then I don't know what is (jokes, we just coincidentally matched due to our impeccable fashion sense). With Ashton managing the impossible task of directing me to try to ensure I didn't look like the bumbling fool I really am, these pictures were the result and I'm so so happy with them so thanks guys!
