New Look Poolside Picks

Bonjour,

Every time exams roll round I get an overwhelming urge to spend a few hours clearing out my entire wardrobe, get rid of a lot of stuff and then go shopping and spend a lot of money. But sadly what with revision I really don't have the time to spare, so until I'm free from exams I have to resign myself to browsing websites and imagining what I would buy. So since summer is close-ish, here are my poolside/beachwear picks from New Look:


Lilac Gingham Check Push Up Bikini Top / €22.99 x 
& High Waisted Bikini Bottoms / €14.99 x
I love this bikini for two reasons: firstly it's high waisted, which is a style I really like in bikinis, and secondly the gorgeous gingham print reminds me of something Lolita would wear!

Red Contrast Trim Amazonian Print Bikini Top / €22.99 x
& High Waisted Bikini Bottoms / €14.99 x
This one kind of reminds me of those crazy Hawaiian flower shirts and I also really like the slightly scuba effect (I think that's what it's called?) that the black trim adds

Black Floral Print Flounce Bikini Top / €22.99 x
& Cages Side High Waisted Bikini Bottoms / €14.99 x
This screenshot doesn't show it too well but I really love the cut out sections on the sides of the bottoms, not to mention the black floral print

Black Crochet Shorts / €17.99 x
I think these simple shorts would be ideal for just throwing on to go from the pool back indoors or at the beach, but I would probably wear them a lot just on everyday occasions in summer

Black Floral Print Caged Sandals / €22.99 x
I saw these sandals and fell in love, so I'm going to try and track them down when I next go shopping after my exams. I really like the slightly retro style, and put black florals on anything and for me you've got a winner!

Blue Strappy Ethnic Print Playsuit / €14.99 x
I love the casual, laidback fit of this - it looks breezy and perfect for just lounging around by the pool

Black Tile Print Kimono / €17.99 x
I've been meaning to get a coverup like this for ages, it just seems so practical to have around. I like the monochrome print and also the fact that it's long and flowy

2 Pack Blue Aztec Print Flip Flops / €7.99 x
I'm not particularly enamoured with that shade of blue, but I figured I had to include some flipflops in a pool/beach picks post. I always have a few cheap pairs lying around that I can destroy by walking around in a lot or getting them muddy, as well as an actually nice pair

Wide Fit Black Metal Trim T-Bar Strap Sandals / €9.99 x
I love this very simple style of sandal and I'm definitely going to invest in a pair before I go on holiday this year. It's nice to see some in black, as I feel like the overwhelming choice for summer is brown or tan, which I don't tend to wear much

Black Round Frame Sunglasses / €7.99 x
I love sunglasses, even though I don't wear them as much as I should. I usually go for really big frames so I'd like to change it up a bit and try a different shape

Black Textured Band Trim Floppy Hat / €14.99 x
I find the problem with taking hats on holiday is that they always get destroyed in your suitcase, but if this one survived I'd probably wear it a lot! Hats are really good for keeping your book in the shade when reading in the bright sunshine, not to mention protecting your head from the sun

And that's what I'd buy from New Look if I had the time and money to go!
