Holiday Outfits: Part One

I've been rather absent from my blog recently due to several reasons. I have just finished university and been concentrating on Sassy World but I have also contemplated stopping blogging for a while as I feel the whole blogger world has changed a lot. I can't really put my finger on it but I generally feel that the blogosphere is over-saturated with people who all dress the same with little originality and there's not much appreciation for people who dress remotely different. It's been a very long time since I've found a blog that I've fallen in love with for it's uniqueness which in turn has somehow caused me to lose my blogging mojo. I don't mean to sound so negative so I apologise for that but just had to get it off my chest- phew!

However, after a week away in Tenerife I realised how much enjoyment blogging has given me over the past 3 years and I'm certainly not ready to give it up just yet! So I'm back with my holiday outfits :D

If you follow me on Instagram you probably will have seen all or some of these so rather than doing an outfit in each post I'm going to bundle them together in two big blog posts to stop it from being too un-exciting. Hope you like them! <3

  1. You always look fab! I love that strawberry two-piece <3

  2. I agree with you on there being a lot of blogs filled with people dressing the same, it's made it hard to find ones to enjoy...I adore everything you wear though, your style is amazing!

  3. I agree and it's why I dont blog anymore. I'm still finding my style and find it hard to post for many reasons. Your style is amazing and I follow you because you're so unique but I totally get you. If you stop blogging please keep uo instagram as your posts inspire me daily. Sassy world is amazing ♥ much love xx

  4. I so with you - omg what has happened to the bloggersphere? Toyed with giving up too but now making a slow comeback.

    p.s. you look banging as always x

  5. The Strawberry two piece is so cute!!


  6. Can I please just have your entire wardrobe? I love everything! You are such a babe! Xx

  7. I know what you mean about there being a lot of blogs where everyone dresses the same and it makes it hard to find new blogs because they all just seem samey. I love your outfits especially the purple skirt with the swimsuit - it looks fab! Hope you had a great holiday! x

  8. Love the third one, normally not a fan of culottes but in this fresh purple it is really chic :) It's nice how you tied in the green from your tank top into the accessories, this adds style :)


  9. Please don't stop blogging, I always look forward to your posts for colourful, dramatic, FUN (but still wearable) inspiration!!!


    1. Like I literally save every one of your outfit photos for future inspiration reference! (not creepy I promise)

  10. Omg your figure is actually unreal! Love the strawberry two piece, it's sooo cute!! xoxo

  11. Love all these outfits!! wish my holiday wardrobe was this dreamy :) and i do understand what you mean about blogs all looking the same... (i think its because companies send out so many of the same product for bloggers to wear!) but yours is still one of my all time favourites because its always so different!! Keep it up lovely :)

  12. Oh I've missed you Helena-Belena, your outfits are a breath of fresh air! Looking like a foxy mumma as always, hope you had a good holibags xx

  13. Such gorgeous clothes! Hope you had fun :-)

  15. Totally understand what you are saying about the blogging world, it's sad. Gorgeous outfits! So in love with your style!


  16. I love all of these and just adore the way you use colour. And I agree, I mean trying to find blogs that have the it factor for me is difficult and all the blogs I find that are different or I fall in love with haven't posted in about a year <3
