Style | Poolside Glamour with Simply Be

[This post is an AD in collaboration with Simply Be and contains gifted items]

We're not all jetting off to white sands and palm trees this Summer but a holiday is a holiday, and a holiday deserves a holiday wardrobe, whether it be in St Tropez or Skegness.

No holiday wardrobe is complete without the Margo Leadbetter Kaftan. With a 70s style paisley print, embellished waistband and tassled neck tie; this particular Kaftan would put even Margo to shame. The side splits are HIGH my friends but I'm assuming that's because it's designed to be worn poolside rather than in a cocktail bar in central Manchester. This said, I'm not one to shy away from a bit of thigh SO HERE WE ARE.

Accessories are what take a kaftan from poolside and beyond. I love the 70s vibe of these aviator sunglasses, they're incredibly good quality for the price. Gold hoops never go out of style and they're a really easy way of dressing up an outfit. Both items accentuate the gold in the beading of the kaftan, tying the look together but upping the glam for a night on the tiles.

Straw bags have been EVERYWHERE for the last few years and they're showing no sign of going away. The best thing about a straw bag is that when you're not using it to carry things, you can use it to store things. This particular bag will hold blankets (decoratively rather than functionally!) when the weather turns

I really don't think you can beat Simply Be's Barely There Sandals and I'm sure you're sick of me going on about them but tough luck because they're the best. They look great, they go with everything and they are just so very comfortable. I've worn this pair for numerous events and walked many steps in them with zero pain. They're the unicorn of high heels and if they're ever discontinued I will lose my mind.

This swimsuit is INCREDIBLE. Simple, well fitting and VERY sexy. Even *I* think my body looks unreal when I'm wearing it and it's very much on the "Lounging Not Lengths" list. It works marvellously well under coverups and skirts alike, plus the straps are adjustable, making it ideal for us of the bigger busted community.
