Style: The Watermelon Obsession.....

                                                                                                                Bikini Top- £14.99
                                                                      Clutch- £9.99
                                       High Waisted Bottoms- £9.99
                                            Bikini Bottoms- £9.99

Yes, this summer I have been feelin' a little fruity! 

Fruit prints & accessories have been huge across the catwalks this summer & because I am quiet the Watermelon addict plus I like the whole 50's vibe surrounding it, I thought I would jump on the fruit train. So whilst on the bikini hunt this summer (though I'm not going on holiday!) this baby caught my eye whilst trawling the New Look website & although it sold out a few times before I managed to get my hands on it, I think this has to be my favourite bikini of all time.

I opted to get the high waisted bottoms as well as the regular ones just because a high waisted tan line is not cool! The top is also tan friendly- no halterneck just two regular straps & is very flattering for small boobed ladies like moi- it is slightly padded & has an underwired cup. I love how 1950's & cute it looks when wearing the high waisted bottoms & also when I stalked out the matching watermelon bag to complete this summer outfit, the look was finally complete!

Have you got a fruit fetish?

Much Love,

Being Elle: The Sunday Catch- Up Week 020...


1. Me & Adam started off the week with a little trip to Bluewater Shopping Centre. After getting stuck in traffic for over an hour we finally got there to do a sort of pre-birthday shopping for me, but we didn't end up picking up that much. I am happy with my Marvel top from Forever 21- it maybe a mens top but I love it & Adam picked it out!

2. Rediscovered Snack A Jacks in Barbecue. That is all. 

3. We Exchanged on Tuesday!!!! We have a house! Completion date is 15th August, which means I will soon be barricaded in to a sea of cardboard boxes.  

4. Wednesday & Thursday saw the dreaded twelve hour shifts to VM our store for two days before it re-opened. It was stressful, funny, interesting & creative but the store looks amazing so I am very happy.

5. I have been obsessed with Josie Maran's Argan Colour Stick in Natural Pink. Perfect for the summer months as well as a busy working gal on the go!

6. Friday finally saw the re-opening of our store & it felt like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders. Two weeks of overnights, twelve hour shifts, bruises & sleepless nights have all proved worth it- the store looks amazing & I could not be prouder of my team. 

7. This weekend I thankfully had off- Saturday morning was again pretty chilled, caught up on the new ELLE & drank quiet a few green teas. In the evening I headed over to Adam's parents where we had a lovely, family barbecue (the first in all our seven years together!) & rounded off the evening taking a lovely bath.

8. Today (Sunday) saw me have a pretty chilled out day, which basically consisted of me lounging on the sofa, watching Gilmore Girls, typing out a few blog posts & enjoying a day off after such a busy week *exhales deeply*

How has your week been?
