Budget Holiday Clothes From Select


Chiffon Kimono Jacket (sold out)


Erm. So I seem to have gone on an (extremely) early holiday clothes ‘top up’. Oh and all my buys seem to be the same colour… my go-to colour, black. Oops. But at least everything was extremely affordable! Actually, I never buy anything super snazzy for holiday. Things just get sun-creamy, sweaty and basically ruined (gross, but true). I usually do a bit of a pre-holiday Primark sweep to add some on-trend bits to my suitcase (a bit like Supermarket Sweep, but in Primark and without Dale Winton). Last year my suitcase was probably 80% Primark - gulp. This year I refuse to look like the grand Primarker of the Canaries. I should probably add, my holiday is in June. But hey, nothing like being organised! 

Somehow I ended up on the Select website. I think a free delivery deal was the culprit here – such a sucker for free delivery, sigh. There was a lot of potential. In fact, if I’d had it my way I would have spent over £50. But I decided 50% of it was just me being over zealous (look at me being all sensible!). So I cut my basket down to these items. 

First off, you’re probably wondering what the hell leggings are doing in this ‘holiday’ post – no, they’re not for holiday! The mesh detail is rather cool and they might come in handy if summer never comes (can’t lie, it’s possible considering the current arctic climate). So onto the actual holiday buys. My favourite is probably the kimono. It’s my alternative to a cardi, as I feel weird in cardigans- not sure why, it’s a strange statement, I know! I have a similar jacket from last year and it's nice and airy to wear in the heat. And for four quid, you really can’t go wrong! Also, the bikinis at Select are ideal for me. Being top heavy it's handy to be able to buy top and bottoms in different sizes without having to splurge. It's fab to find another budget fashion store that offers this other than Primark!

My order should arrive tomorrow or Friday, so I’ll keep you updated on the ‘keep’ and ‘return’ piles. Greedily, I’m hoping that they are all keepers!

(Ps. I know black isn’t technically a colour, but I’m not sure what else to refer to it as!)
