My Portugal Holiday Lookbook 2017

After recently sharing my five reasons to visit the Algarve in Portugal, I though I would also share my holiday outfits with you, in my eyes what is a holiday without the style. Being that the weather was beautiful and sunny for October and the cheap flights (less than £100) meant I could splurge a little (I say splurge, but a lot of these outfits were less than £10!) before I jetted off on my fifth summer holiday of the year and unfortunately my last of 2017... But, hey I'm already looking forward to 2018.

 Blue and Lemon OOTD

On the day I wore this outfit, I felt it was meant to be! We had lunch at a nearby seafood restaurant and opposite was this traditional Portuguese building in blue and white which matched my top and shoes perfectly. The H&M lemon shorts and Peacocks shoes were not actually new, but the blue cami from ASOS was, at just £9 it was an absolute steal! I finished off the holiday look with a canvas bag and hat from Ale-hop which is the best accessories shop in Portugal.

Nude and Khaki OOTD

Once again my summer hat made an appearance in these outfit photos, it was too cute not to. I wore it with my glamorous khaki denim shorts, ASOS nude cami top with ruffle straps (£4.50) and ASDA sandals which I picked up in the end of season sale for £2, YES you heard me right and because they are elasticated they were super comfy.

Boohoo Tile Print Swimsuit

Over summer I haven't eaten particularly great so I definitely wanted to wear a swimsuit for this holiday. After browsing the internet for ages finding to find a suitable one, I came across the loveliest tile print blue swimsuit in the petite section at Boohoo for, just wait for it... £4! It was off the shoulder so less tan lines and fit perfectly. As we were walking to the beach I came across this gorgeous floral backdrop which was made for holiday pictures.

Missguided White Spot Frill dress

With a summer tan you really can't go wrong with a white outfit. This Missguided dress was just £10.50 in the sale and is such fab quality, it has victorian style neckline and ruffles all the way down the front. I can't wait to style this for autumn with tights and black or burgundy boots.

Boohoo Tropical Dress

You can't go on holiday and not wear a tropical dress, especially when there's so many palm trees. I bought this tropical dress (£7) from Boohoo back in August and never got a chance to wear it over summer in the UK. The dress is a layered, wrap style at the bottom and off the shoulder at the top and because its elasticated its oh so comfy.

Which is your favourite look?
