How apt is this blog post title? I actually couldn’t think of anything witty or informative so I left it at my favourite saying right now: beach, please. 

I am a summer baby: I love the beach, getting dressed for the beach, lazing on the beach, splashing around in the sea, getting too hot on the beach, and finally those glorious post-beach naps all sandy and stuff. 

To finish the long weekend off we popped to Secret Beach (we love it, it’s our fave) for the morning.

Anyway, here is what I wore:

  • ASOS black tie leg espadrilles – link
  • River Island denim cut-offs 
  • H&M blue stripe shirt
  • Mango bag
  • Oversized round sunglasses – I don’t know, I think Forever 21 from years ago

I kid you not, that hat is from Carrefour. I needed a hat desperately and couldn’t find one I liked so after throwing peaches and watermelon in the trolley, in went the most basic-sun-paper-straw-type-hat-thing. Anyway, it cost next to nothing and is doing the job until I find one I love.

Those denim shorty shorts too. They are, wait for it, 12 years old! I bought them as boyfriend jeans when I was 18 and, ahem, slightly curvier. So they are a few sizes too big now but fit perfectly under my bump! I’ll never throw them away, ever.

As you can tell, at the moment I am just wearing whatever fits me. It also doesn’t help that I gave away 75% of my wardrobe before coming to Dubai so I really need to do some serious shopping!

Moving on… I saved these ASOS black tie leg espadrilles in my ‘saved items’ for weeks before they eventually came back in stock. They are only £16 and are actually really comfy. I love the suede upper and peep toe too, super cute.

And here I am trying to look all nonchalant and cute. I’m wearing a Forever 21 smocked bikini (I blogged about them here), which I love. It’s mint green, makes me look like I have boobs (thanks to pregnancy for once I actually do) and has a pretty criss cross back that gave me awkward tan lines but….cute.

I clearly filtered the crap out of this photo as I’m experiencing what is commonly known as the pregnancy mask. Yup, blotchy skin on my face, chest and a little on my arms. Anyway, filters are giving me life right now! 

PS: In that photo my bump looks non-existent. I’ve figured this out: if I sit up straight (see gynaecologist, I’m working on my posture), the bump is tucked in. If I stand up, belly looks huge. The ponderings of a pregnant girl.
