Did you know that this week is National Picnic Week? And it couldn’t have been a better week for picnics, with the temperatures reaching  the 30’s and the sun shining.

With the weather being super hot we have been coming home in the evenings and enjoying a splash in the paddling pool – me included- and a bit of a picnic in the garden. Our routine has been out of the window, but hey, the sun doesn’t shine in London very often so we’ve been making the most of it.

Our holiday requirements have changed a lot since having children. Long gone are the days of long haul flights and exotic destinations; we are now embracing all inclusive and child friendly places instead. Fuerteventura has been on our holiday wish list for a while, not just  for the great weather all year round but also for their white sandy beaches and super clear sea. After a lot of research we decided to stay at the H10 Tindaya which is part of the H10 Hotels group. The H10 Tindaya is in Costa Calma, in the Southern part of the island, about an hour / an hour and a half transfer from the airport.

By the time you read this post I will be sunning myself in the Canary Islands. The UK has been having fantastic weather lately but nothing beats going on a “proper holiday”, sitting by the pool with a cold drink or just walking along the beach.

I don’t know you, but I always feel like I have nothing to wear to a beach holiday and I frantically check the shops or the internet for new bits a few weeks before I go away. Beach bags and bikinis are one of those things that I love getting every year. One of my favourite stores to buy anything holiday related is Oysho.

I like to embrace  fashion trends, sometimes they are not for me, but other times they are right up my street. I’m not a huge fan of  big prints or florals but I am loving the current trend of embroidered tops that  are out there on the High Street at the moment.

You don’t necessarily have to be a fan of the boho style to follow this trend. There are so many choices in stores at the moment, not necessarily with bold and big prints but with small ones too.

Here are some of my favourite embroidered tops

ZARA

Zara is  my go to place in the High Street. They always get the latest trends and recreate them at an affordable price. This is a gorgeous top combining embroidery and lace. With short bell sleeves it will be perfect for the summer months. I love the floaty, delicate style of it and it’s something I’d wear a lot when on holiday.
