So I have just booked Barcelona with a lovely group of girlfriends for my friends hen weekend in June, and it cannot come round quick enough! If there is one European city I have wanted to experience for a long while, it is Barcelona, so I’m really excited I have finally had an excuse to book it.
The nicest thing about it is that it’s a great bunch of people going, staying in a lovely apartment, with an agenda of classy things to do, including exploring the best of Barcelona’s cocktail bars, dining out at the nicest restaurants, having some chill out time at the beach, and of course- hitting the shops!
It may be a whole 2 months away, but I’m already thinking about what stylish Summer city-inspired holiday clothes I’ll be bringing with me. There will be none of the trashy and cheap dress up games for this hen weekend, so I’m thinking more along the lines of the types of clothing I’d pack for a little fashionable break to Marbella, Ibiza or Madrid... (now here’s some holiday photos from last year to start getting me in the mood!)
These little holiday snaps were taken in Bali, Indonesia, last July (the full post can be read here) and although a million miles away from Europe, the whole vibe, class and style is the frame of mind I am getting into for my Barcelona city and beach trip!
When I think of glittering golden tans, jewelled sandals, fashionable swimwear and luxury flowing holiday dresses, I think of Forever Unique. So I checked out their newest collections to get some lavish holiday style inspirations for this upcoming trip, but here’s a warning, you may fall head over heels in love with the brand and their collections after seeing the stunning items below! I want to pack them all up in my suitcase for my 3 day trip…
First up on my list is the Brianna Navy Bandaged Bikini with High Waisted Shorts, £165. It has a stunning metal clasp to add detail, and I love how sleek the multi strap design looks. This bikini set screams premium; its one to keep you looking amazing whilst sipping cocktails at the poolside, yet also with a kaftan thrown oven when touring around the city and beach front.
The next item on my holiday lust list is this fabulous Vivienne Neon Coral Embellished Full Length Kaftan, £220. This is one of those amazing, show stopping kaftans that doubles up as a dress for those smart and uber-cool restaurants if paired with a stacking pair of pretty wedge shoes or heels.
And that’s where the next part comes in – Forever Unique now retail footwear!
How beautiful are these Totem Coral Leather Peep Toe Shoes? The gold chain detailing adds that luxury touch, and to me, these shoes looks just as premium as the to designer brands. In a scrumptious shade of coral, these will look striking with a pair of tanned legs and a dress. They say your most special shoes should be saved only for special occasions, and if I owned a pair like this, I’d class a chic evening out in Barcelona as one of those occasions…
And last but not least of my fabulous four round up, you all know by now I’m a sucker for a short little number if the sun is shining! Got to flash those pins as a priority when on holiday… lusting after this Ettie Coloured Snake Print Playsuit, £165, which comes with a delicate golden metal neckline to give that touch of glamour. This would be my Barcelona bar crawl outfit, teamed with a statement colour clutch bag and a pop of bright lippy. There are some breathtakingly beautiful items over at Forever Unique that I feel are designed perfectly for stylish city and beach breaks. It’s a fail safe online retailer if you have one of those all important ‘dress-code-is-important’ holidays coming up…
