Winter Sun Holiday Wishlist: Bon Prix

I can’t quite remember whether I’ve mentioned this, but at the end of September, I’m going to be going away for a weekend to Spain with my grandparents. They’re staying over there already and have invited Ben, my sister Beth and me over to stay with them. Due to work commitments and the amount of holiday I’ve already taken this year, we only going for the weekend, from Friday to Monday, but that’s definitely plenty of time to get some sunshine and eating of good Spanish food in 😀 So, since I really enjoyed my ‘virtual’ shopping in creating my Avenue 32 wishlist, I thought I might start doing them more often. Technically it’s not a ‘winter sun’ holiday as I’ve titled the post, but generally end of September is getting into coat weather in my part of the UK (except for my birthday two years ago!), so it’ll be nice to get some sun in the autumn! So here is my wishlist, from Bon Prix, of clothes I’d like to wear for my weekend break. I plan to do more with clothes from other shops soon; I just can’t fit everything I want from every shop into one post!
Boat neck lace dress Lace skater dress • £39.99 • bonprix

#1 Boat Neck Lace Dress
Every holiday needs a pretty dress. And while I already have lots of these, what’s the harm in another?! I feel like people dress up a little more in Spain, so I wouldn’t feel too fancy wearing this out for a meal on an evening with a pair of strappy wedges.

Cotton circle skirt

#2 White Cotton Circle Skirt
For the days when we’re not lounging around the pool, and instead head out to explore the surrounding area, a plain white circle skirt is perfect. You all know that I love skirts and dresses that you can twirl in, and this one hits perfectly at knee length.

#3 Block Colour Peep Toe Wedges
I felt like I was sticking a bit to a white colour scheme there, so how to inject some colour? Shoes, of course! I love the mix or teal and royal blue in these shoes. They’re so summery, and possibly a bit too high, but so pretty!
Palm print bandeau bikini

#4 Palm Print Bandeau Bikini

Palm print swimsuit

#5 Palm Print Swimsuit
And what would a holiday be without swimwear?! Seriously, how utterly amazing are the above pieces? Definitely got a Topshop feel to them but a fraction of the price. I don’t tend to wear swimsuits much because I’m generally trying to tan my pasty tummy, but if I did, this one would be coming with me. And I’m very seriously considering spending a little bit of my hard earned money on the bikini, just a bit skeptical about the bandeau top fitting me, since they usually don’t!

    Spain!! Oh make sure to take PLENTY of photos so I can live through them, haha. What part of Spain are they staying? And I like your holiday choices, especially the white skirt. That’d be so cute to style!
