For our summer holiday this year my husband and I went to Marmaris in Turkey.
I was slightly worried how I would stay true to my vintage style but I think I kinda pulled it off. I mainly went more 50's than 40's, with my cats eye sunglasses and polka dots. We stayed in a lovely hotel called Emre Beach Hotel which was very stylish and comfortable and we also had a slight view of the sea from our balcony which made me very happy!
I was determined to dress comfy for the flight as I HATE being cold on the plane. So to travel, I wore a skirt with an elasticated waist (extra comfy and roomy) and tights and cardy to keep me toasty warm.

We spent a lot of time drinking as you can see. The cocktails were yummy. Excuse the poor victory rolls, my hair was very naughty on holiday and took ages to tame.

Oh dear, drinking again. Believe it or not but I hardly drink normally! I was actually happy with my hair on this night.
Check out the sea view from our balcony. This view made me very happy. I love to be able to see the sea (ha I bet I couldn't say that after those cocktails!) This was also the evening after having my pin curls in all day. As you can see, it wasn't the best set, but I did manage to get some curl. Woohoo! The skirt I'm proudly wearing is homemade by ME! It's the first thing I ever made and cost about £3.00 for the material. I was proper chuffed at how it turned out.

This was my favourite outtfit of the holiday. I love the colours in the skirt and it was very lightweight which meant it was very cool to wear. I bought the fan earlier that day at Icemeler Market as it was so hot. It made me feel very glam.

Dont ask. I wasn't drunk. Honest.
Another home made skirt. This time a circle skirt made with yellow gingham. This skirt was very fun to wear. I couldn't stop twirling and ended up making myself so dizzy that I fell over.

Twirling. Shortly before I fell over.
Check out the view from outside the hotel.
So, as you can see, I had a very relaxing (yes, and drunken) holiday. Now to start and look for next years holiday...
