Back street living 

Tarifa you have been unbelievable. I like to think of myself as a hippy at heart and if you do too then I cannot recommend Tarifa enough. In general it is a beautiful place; with stunning beaches that stretch for miles, delicious food and lovely people. 

We stayed in Hotel Aristoy which is found in the centre of the town on a backstreet. The hotel has a little courtyard outside of it which you can eat dinner in at night😍 as you can see in the picture the centre of the hotel is open aired and there is a tree growing up through it, how cute is that?

On the roof of the hotel there is a pool which looks over the entire town. Round the corner from us was another hotel where our friends were staying, it had the coolest little bar attached to it that did amazing cocktails and if you stayed in the hotel this is where you had breakfast. 

Tarifa is by far one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to, the vibe there is out of this world: at night especially, the streets are rammed with people until the early hours. Restaurants and bars literally serve from holes in the walls to the hundreds of people in the streets and the food they sell is to die for. 

Lastly but certainly by no means least.. The shopping. I could have quite literally spent my entire life’s savings there in about an hour. If you like jewellery, like me, you would have been in heaven 

Even the shops themselves were gorgeous, I could have spent my whole three weeks holiday there and still wanted more time to shop! The hippy ethos of the town is reflected in all of the shops

Every shop was filled with delightful little bits and bobs and left me feeling like I needed to rob a bank in order to buy more stuff. 

Time to share my new purchases😆 this whole outfit tho, this teal colours maxi off the shoulder dress and these two necklaces💚💚💚💚💚💚 I love 

And then this grey leather tasseled choker I bought from a stall on the beach in Tarifa 😍 cannot wait to wear these lot out. 

Tarifa you have my heart, until next time.. 



Under wraps 

On my day off I’ve had plenty of time to people watch down at the beach and see what everyone is wearing. I took some inspiration from the beach and did some research for some affordable beach cover ups for you all to enjoy 

First is the pale pink two piece from asos, you could wear this on the beach and I would also wear this on a night out on holiday as it is incredibly flattering and also a light weight material so won’t be uncomfortable and leave you feeling to hot. 

Another two piece that caught my eye was this gorgeous tie dye kimono and shorts from asos – I love a bit of asos if you haven’t already noticed. I adore the colours in these they’re so pretty and compliment a tan as you can see in the picture. Having the kimono allows you to keep cool on the beach and feel the breeze from the sea 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊

In love with this. Sheer white lace play suit from missguided is unreal; it would be perfect on the beach as it is light weight but it would also look amazing at a festival with a bralet and little shorts underneath with layered jewellery over the top 😍

Aqua heavennnn💙💚💙💚               This knitted dress from missguided is too cute and just like the play suit before could be worn both at a festival or on the beach. I personally would pair this with black accessories to keep the focus on the dress. 

Lastly are these stunning beach skirts. The first tie dye skirt is from boohoo and could be worn out or down on the beach. The colours are gorgeous and can be worn with a variety of bikinis as there are different colours running through the skirt. 

The second collection of skirts are from @rubysboutique on Instagram. They are so flattering on and cinch you in at the waist perfectly, they offer a range of colours and would be perfect for your holidays.
